HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 14/11/2014 at 16:37

Years ago I had a glass vase on a window sill, until I saw that when the sun shone, the vase could focus the light onto the carpet.

Still wet here, and starting to get cold.

Have a good evening all.

Morning all, biblical rain here. Just driven to the SM. and several roads were flooded.

Another day I will not be starting to clear leaves from the lawn.

Nice to hear from you Bill. Hope everybody has a good day.

My understanding is that most species of Begonia are far less hardy than Cannas/Dahlias, so should really be lifted before the frosts.

I have been lucky enough as a doctor to work in both America and Holland, as well as the NHS.

America was great, as long as you could afford insurance. Over 30% of population cannot, and their care is terrible.

The standard of care in Holland was excellent, possibly better than the NHS, but it cost much more than we spend.

Comparatively we spend less on health care than other developed countries.

Doctors do not always get it right, but can you think of any profession that does?

Morning all, guess what the weather is like today.

I may go and tidy the shed. If I do not appear on here in a couple of days, please call the rescue services.

Have a good day everyone.

Well, if I say so myself, that was a very nice dinner. Prawn risotto, with fennel, peas and pancetta, washed down with a very nice Languedoc white.

have a good evening.

Perhaps your terrible experiences give some idea what it was like to be a clinician in the NHS for over 30 years, and maybe why I eventually lost my marbles.

I can only hope you get your problems sorted, and as I am sure you know, most of the clinical staff are caring and dedicated.

Evening all. Another grey and wet day here in Sheffield. Lots of wistful staring out of windows, imagining that the rain might stop.

Spent most of the day playing Backgammon on the computer, very addictive.

KEF Ginium is the best tranquiliser I know.

Hi LP, sorry for delay in replying. I have used the light box for about 8 years now, and I do feel it makes a difference. There is some fairly good research that supports their use, certainly my psychiatrist recommends them.

Morning all, couldn't sleep, so been doing my light box, listening to the radio.

Good luck at school Mrs G.
