HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 19/01/2016 at 08:03

Morning Fg Chicky and Hosta and any others I've missed - I didn't see the MS programme either, but hope that help materialises.  My friend's daughter was diagnosed with it while at uni .

We watched a brilliant programme on Egyptian history last night - but watching on tv is fine for me - can't do the heat - it must be my Viking ancestry

HELLO FORKERS!

Good morning all   G'day Pat and Ginger

Glad you're feeling better Hosta  and the same to Wonky and Steve - hope DD is on the mend too and all other poorly people.  Ditto poorly cars!

I'll try that link again http://www.edp24.co.uk/news/sinking_woman_rescued_from_mud_tomb_after_terrifying_cliff_slip_ordeal_at_trimingham_near_mundesley_1_4364828

but if it doesn't work I'll explain ... the day after New Years Day a woman was walking her dog near the cliff tops on the Norfolk coast.  The dog went over the edge for something (it's a sloping, not a steep cliff) but for some reason the dog wouldn't/couldn't get back up so the woman decided to slide down to the dog - however there had been a sort of landslide of mud earlier and she tried to walk across it and sank into It like a quicksand.  If she had not laid out flat she would have disappeared in the mud, but she couldn't get up.  It was cold and wet and she was becoming hypothermic before a walker heard her shouts - even then she was so covered with mud that he couldn't see her - just her dog that was standing on her.  She was rescued by helicopter and coastguard.  She's so lucky that walker found her. 

HELLO FORKERS!

Clari - be careful when you go sliding down banks - slightly bigger bank I know, but this woman would have died if someone hadn't heard her

I really don't notice the music on GW except at the beginning and the end - I sometimes notice birdsong

According to this https://www.ocado.com/webshop/product/McVities-Ginger-Nuts/10222011?sku=10222011&parentContainer=SEARCHginger+nuts_SHELFVIEW&voucherCode

they're manufactured in Ashy de la Zouch and Ocado appear to have some  - however on several of the big supermarkets' websites they appear to be out of stock
