  1. I'll go miles out of my way to help animals and birds; I re-home spiders when they get stuck in the bath. But I hate magpies. I've seen them raiding nests of other birds, flying off with eggs in their beaks. On a couple of occasions I've seen them with baby birds in their (magpie's) beaks. On both occasions I managed to be a good Samaritan and caused the magpie to fly off, releasing its captive.

  2. My son did some filming here the other day at the grand reopening for a client. (He’s a professional videographer). He was quite impressed and it’s apparently nice as a tourist attraction. I have been a frequent visitor there for over 60 years. Taken on there by my mum in a pushchair, as a toddler and later walks around with my wife, son and a nice place to go with my grandchildren. A lifetime of visits. The grounds can now only be entered at the full entrance fee, no facility to just enter the grounds for a walk. Poor old Arthur Seaton will have to find a different venue to take Bren

  3. While on this topic, Ive had a painful few days. For some time now I've had a niggly feeling in my teeth and gums. Nothing to say it was toothache or infection but finally went to my brother in law who's a dentist. It was an infection caused by a capped tooth. Anyway partly solved but still needs more treatment next week. Then my oncologist rang to give me an appointment ( with results of my latest exams) this afternoon.

  4. Thanks Catfan... I get this knot in my stomach when my imagination goes into overdrive, but then I think "I can't do owt about it, so I've just got to let the doctors do what they have to do." I'd like to thank you & everyone who's commented for their moral support....

  7. Colly don't worry about falling asleep , it happens to us all and I notice it more now than a few months ago. Radiology does make you tired, I remember when I had it the patients would talk between themselves about how tired they got. I used to think its not happening to me , is something wrong then it got me and I joined the ranks. It does pass but I've had no experience with hormone tabs. All the best.

  14. Good one DJ360 The Kinks, part of the sounds of the sixties. Waterloo Sunset has become a classic. Strangely enough never made number 1 but fittingly used in the closing of the London Olympics Also like Death of a Clown and Plastic Man
