HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 29/08/2014 at 08:50

Good morning folks   Popping in on OH's laptop again - normal service will not be resumed until Tues or Wed.  We have loads of family stuff this weekend including BIL's big birthday bash and then hopefully will meet up with Nut and Artjak on Sunday.  Don't suppose the rest of you will see much of me on here until Monday.  

Fidget ((hugs)) horrible horrible situation  ((hugs)).

So similar to what happened to Pa 5 years ago, but they were the ones responsible for him being so ill in the first place as one of their consultants had given him the wrong mix of medication and put him in a coma for his 90th birthday!   My employers gave me compassionate leave and I took up residence in the ward, jumped up and down, shouted, researched contra-indications of the meds he was on, recorded the warning re the meds given to the consultant by the junior doctor and his reply (all in my hearing) and I emailed all and sundry with a chronology of events and eventually got him taken off the L. Pathway and treated properly to flush out the medication from his system - he's still with us with all his marbles, but has been incredibly weak and fragile ever since

However Ma, as next of kin, wouldn't allow any further action

I've just picked and frozen a load of raspberries and runner beans

Verdun, thanks for the recommendation for Emergo runner beans - we're getting a really good crop of lovely straight and very tasty beans with no stringy bits

Hello all

Salino quote...from New allotment she is trying to get an allotment

Gardengirl...I'm in East Anglia..Fenland area...the soil I have been told is excellent on the site and it doesn't flood..

Dove are you from that area?

was sunny now looks a bit grey

Salino is over to the west of us on lovely black fenland - we're just south-west of Norwich, on gritty free-draining sandy loam - part of the belt of terminal moraine that runs up to the Cromer Ridge - the Ice Age stopped here

We've had rain all morning, but it's brightening up here now.

Hello folks - just popping in - as KEF has told you the best laid plans of mice and men gang oft awa - or something along those lines - anyway I'm still on borrowed laptop and can only have it when OH isn't using it, and he uses it quite a lot.

Fidget ((hugs)) hope to hear your Dad's a lot better soon.

Don't stamp on them with worn smooth Crocs - like ice skating   Drown them in salty water, or beer if you're feeling kind.

Cleaning an older dog's teeth is not uncommon - like with humans, if tartar has built up it can cause inflamed gums and the loss of teeth which will in turn cause other problems.

It's not a cheap treatment however - your vet should give you an idea of the cost before going ahead.

There's some info here http://www.purina.co.uk/content/your-dog/helping-to-keep-your-dog-healthy/regular-dog-care/looking-after-your-dog%27s-teeth

I would imagine that he's contravening his tenancy agreement. 

I would also assume that the Fire Service are going to be notifying either the council or the police or both - all sorts of rules and regs are presumably being conravened.

If I were you I would also make a formal written complaint to the council re noxious and possibly hazardous fumes.

They can issue him with an order to make him clear up his property - and if he's physically/mentally not able to do that they can arrange for it to be done.

5' 7"   and I (used to) have the same measurements as Twiggy

Blue skies and sunshine here - just waiting for load of towels to finish in the machine so that I can hang them out before going to visit son and Aged Ps, and hopefully pick up new laptop so that normal service can be resumed
