I marked the Silence with Radio Four.

Mind your fingers - they're still very hot!

I've made anonymous referrals in the past (before I worked for Children's Services).  My identity was never divulged.  

Also, when I was working for Children's Services we received anonymous referrals which came via our 'Referral Team' who handled the first point of contact phone calls.  The ID of the caller was always protected.

What have you lost?

OH's boss had a beautiful and very expensive watch her husband had bought her - it had a sapphire set in the winder.  Foolishly she wore it to work one day and during the morning discovered that the winder was missing - she asked the staff to keep their eyes open for it, hoping it had fallen onto the shop counter or similar but no one saw it.

Then later in the afternoon OH was sweeping the carpark outside the shop and saw a glint! 

She's a very lucky woman

Dove, do you think I need to contact Social Services?

See original post

 The hospital should have done it if they're following their CP procedures ....... however, they may not have ... I would make a referral if I were you.  In fact, as a doctor (even if not working) I think that technically you may have a duty to make a referral.  

I would explain the situation - the historical difficult relationship regarding NDN and that police have been involved, and ask for anonimity.  

My guess is that NDN will assume that the paramedics or hospital made the referral anyway.

He used words like Rembrandt used paint, making light out of darkness. 

There will never be another. 

Any geologists out there?

There were stone musket balls, but they weren't made of Flint with the white chalky-looking covering like the ones we find fairly deep down in flint-rich East Anglia.

Garden related name for kitten

Posted: 11/11/2016 at 08:24

Many years ago I had a black half-Burmese. We called him Barnabas (not sure why). Then a year later he had kittens! After that we called her Barnapuss. Her son, who was identical, was called Nimba - a mountain range in Africa. Again I can't remember why but there must've been a reason

Same here. Ice on the garage roof early on, but I've just checked the garden thermometer and the lowest last night was 2.4C in the sheltered back garden.
