Morning Pdoc   the slower you stroll, the more you see 

Just a thought ... do you know Jonathan Richman's recordings ... we're just playing some ... he's one of those musicians you forget just how good he is until you hear them again ....... I love so many of his songs ... That Summer Feeling is so good .... and Action Packed ... love all of them really.  Oh, and 'You're the One for Me'

Good morning all 

Dry here in Norfolk with sky clearing in the west ... we could do with a dry spell ... but I might regret saying that 

The Irish trip does seem a lot of money ... wonder if you get The Full Monty for that?

A little cultivation competition

Dried marrowfat peas can be sprouted and grown on windowsills to provide pea shoots for salads. 

Problem is, my bright windowsills are full of herb pots and pots of bulbs.

I believe most hospital car parks belong to the companies that own the buildings, not the NHS ... and the revenue goes to the owners, not the NHS ... I think I'm right in saying that ...

I don't think he's off the hook Joyce ... he's obviously allowed something to be sucked up which has blocked it ... in my book that's 'his bad' ............ (see how contemporary I can be )

Hear! Hear! Obelixx

And we mustn't forget that the NHS is still doing amazing stuff under very difficult circumstances ... a friend posted this elsewhere today

"... Just over a year ago, I mentioned on here that my nephew was found to have necrolysing fasciitis and was in intensive care. This is a problem caused by bacteria that destroy flesh. There is no known treatment other than removal of the affected areas. Fortunately he was diagnosed early and it had only affected his lower leg. His leg was saved, but he needed months of treatment and skin grafts from his knee to his toes. Yesterday we heard that his surgeon had discharged him back to the care of his GP as he is considered to be cured. "

Remarkable work by remarkable people
