That's a TVR isn't it Dove?

Hosta, I am sure you should have both.

If you have the good taste to like drophead E Types, then you deserve one. I wouldn't mind an original soft top Porsche 911 either.

I'll have the same Hosta, in silver.

A new heart would not go amiss, either.

I think that the key, as you point out Hosta and Dove, is having had the conversation with your relatives.

I was often in a situation, where it was clear that no discussion had taken place, and family members were unaware, that the patient carried a donor card.

At such an incredibly stressful moment, the default position, was sadly often no.

This is a bit of a sermon and probably very presumptuous of me, so you may not want to read any further.


A lot of doctors are coming out against this, but are not discussing some of the key issues.

Most organs come from patients dying on ICU.

Many of these people do now carry organ donation cards.

We still have to ask the relatives permission to obtain the organs.

About 35% of these relatives then refuse to allow donation.

Presumed consent works very well in several other countries, which have much higher organ donation rates than we do.

Hi all.

A glimmer of hope this morning, with the election of Doug Jones to the US senate.

That's a great photo, considering how it was taken.

I wouldn't manage that degree of coordination.

Obelixx, you are fortunate in being a strong and resourceful person, but not everyone sees things like you.

For many people, particularly men, it can be very hard to make the leap, from knowing you are lonely, to actually being able to do something about it.

This can easily become a downward spiral, the longer you are lonely, the lower your self esteem, and the less likely you are to try and solve the problem.
