Senior moment, RG?  :hmmm:

But nice all the same! :thumbsup:

Similar thing happens in our house every now and then, though it's more of a case of my wife finding some loco or wagon she didn't remember me buying. :worried:

Having reported in the Angry Thread some shabby dealings with Evans Halshaw last Friday morning.......
http://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?topic=659.msg501662#msg501662

I went down there this morning prepared to do battle with the Workshop Manager (aka the Enemy at Evans Halshaw) but was intercepted by a young chap who enquired what my issue was. He thought he knew a simple 'reset' but it didn't work so he said he'd book the car in, that it was certainly a warranty issue and there would be no charges whatsoever. He got the car booked in a week earlier than the chap last Friday could and they will be collecting/redelivering it at no cost (evidently standard practice for warranty issues if desired by the owner).
A completely different and refreshing attitude to the  :censored: I dealt with before.
I'm a happy bunny :)


Ok, so they collected the car at 09.30 this morning and have just brought it back but have told me the window worked just fine and they could not find a fault :doh: ???
I had to tell the guy it was his own Service Advisor who tested the window and it didn't work and 'twas him who booked it in.
Still, there's no charge. The car got a free health check and valet. I'm happy.
Mind you, they didn't make a good job of cleaning the front alloys. D'you think I should take it back to them? :angel:

Not finding what I went to look for (and still can't find,) is an ever more common senior moment Mike. :worried: Forgetting that I'd bought 'Lord Hinton' is more a case of a decade when I had more disposable income than sense. :D!

Perfect 23° today so we took the dogs for a walk (and a splash in a muddy pool...) in Ashdown Forest followed by a delicious meal in the beer garden of the Gallipot Inn in Hartfield.  :beers:   Aaaaah, bliss...!  :) :) :)

And I get to do a bit of work on the layout this evening.  :claphappy:

Cheers,

Chris

Really glad you had a great day.
However, a word of caution, a case of Alabama foot rot was confirmed in Lewes, which is less than 20 miles away.
Cheers, Trev.

That's excellent news Trev.   :thumbsup: After having similar problems 3 or 4 years ago and following numerous biopsies, scans etc., it was nice to be told 18 months or so ago, that, as far as the Doc's could tell, there was nothing to worry about.  I might have to get the single malt out now to celebrate with/for you!  :beers:

I make no apologies for repeating my advice to forum members at the time - any man over the age of about 40 should ask their GP for a PSA, (prostate specific antigen), test. A 'wrong' result does not mean there is something wrong.  :no:. But if there is anything amiss, the sooner it is found the better.

Great news! However, I read a while ago that the tests they are using these days are a lot more sensitive and are coming up positive for blood in urine for lots of people who actually have no problem. It may well be the case that it is fairly common, but wasn't detectable at the low levels of most people before.

I guess that's probably true, but better safe than sorry..
Over the last several years I've had a few "bladder infections". Twice treated with antibiotics, and sometimes self treated with cranburry juice successfully.  This time the cranberry didn't work, saw the doc, antibiotics again for the third time, and had to give a sample , and this time red blood cells found, twice, a week apart.  That's when I got refered to urology.
I know the NHS has a few problems, but this has all been sorted in a month and can only sincerely thank them for the "service" I have received in such a timely manner. 
Cheers, Trev.

Glad you are all clear. I had the same inspections last year with "nowt to worry about" results. Apparently such traces are common once you get to around 50 but initial tests are more accurate and GPs are becoming uber cautious and referring "just in case"
If it looks right, it probably is right.

I got referred to the urologist who decided to look inside. I thought they would use a fibre optic camera, but I think they used a bit of 1/2” gas pipe with a threaded end. Fortunately all OK, but they still don’t know why I keep getting infections. Now on a prophylactic dose of antibiotics l
I'm not sure if life is passing me by, or trying to run me over.
