Hi Katie

Just thought I'd flag up Malcolm's post re font size and the problems experienced by the partially sighted


Font size

Posted: 08/09/2015 at 13:44

 Hi Malcolm and welcome - I don't find that enlarging the font screws up the formatting - perhaps that's because I've downloaded an adblocker.  Perhaps you could try that?

I will flag this up to Katie who's working on re-vamping the site so that if there's anything that can be done to help, they know about it.

Of course it should be give and take, but even a bit more generous giving than taking is worthwhile for a quiet life - a bad relationship with neighbours can be a living hell.

Morning Hosta   Don't wear him out - he's got an important job next week!!!

DD, I've got a brain like a sponge - it's crammed full of stuff.  If I get like Ma and it all starts coming out in the wrong order, it's going to provide someone with a lot of amusement

Yvie ((hugs))  is there another hospital your mum could go to?  I can understand that she feels anxious about going back to where she had such an awful time. 

Towards the end Pa stated very firmly that he didn't want to go back into hospital and that whatever happened he wanted to remain at The Lovely Home - he said this to his GP and it was put in writing on his notes and on the computer system.  When he was taken poorly the GP and the Practice Nurses managed his symptoms and kept him comfortable.  If it was out of hours the Emergency Doctor who attended was shown a copy of the relevant papers on his file and all was done as he wanted.  However, it was known that he did not have long left. 

Good luck to your OH with his op.  Fingers crossed here for a very postive outcome

Sorry to say it'll come back next year Pink lily.  Any teeny tiny bit of root left behind will re-grow and as bindweed roots are very brittle you'll never get it all out. 

Spray with glyphosate on a dry day and keep the dog in for an hour or so until the foliage is dry - it'll be fine.
