but find that I can put my socks on ok if I have one foot on the floor and one on the foot of the bed

I tried that once, but being in the top bunk was never going to be a good starting point :no:

I've only just caught up with your latest saga, Mick. Sorry to hear your troubles, and I hope your Mum is up and about again soon. My Mum did a similar thing some years ago - lost her balance and fell over on to our Christmas tree and broke her hip. Her 90th birthday it was, too. Brighton A&E were brilliant - patched her up and she lived another 6 years. That generation were a sturdy lot.

All the best,

Chris

why is it that this forum seems to be 'page unresponsive' so much of the time.

looks like a waste of time joining.
I've been on here numerous times a day for years and have never had 'page unresponsive' come up. How about asking if there is a problem rather than your first post saying the forum is a waste of time?

@Redcap244 I have been on the site on three different devices through 3 different wi-fi and phone links without a single issue at all. Are you sure the problem is not with your device or internet service? Seems odd that you should have a problem when the site seems to be working well for me. Must be my Magic Mike powers. :)

@Redcap244 I'm looking at the Forum on Samsung tablet, phone and a laptop, never had that message.

I suspect a problem with your comms, rather than the Forum.

Let's hope you can sort it out.

I seldom have a problem getting on, so must be at your end not the forum.

@Redcap244

I live in a very rural part of Ireland and, whilst I do occasionally get that message, it is extremely rare. And if I get that sort of message in relation to the forum, I know it is because I am not on 4G - more like 1G  and other sites have difficulty in loading, if at all :). Somebody mentioned a while back that there was something called 5G  ??? Wonder when that will get here.

Hi

That is sad as the graduation day for me was the best part. I also gave the student speech at my most recent one in 2017.

Cheers

Here  in Coastal Norfolk we only get 1g if we stand upstairs in the  bathroom facing the right way. The amazon tracker of deliveries, stops when the van goes to the estate lower down from us about a mile to the north..

This should really be in the 'Happy Thread', but in view of the current posts, I thought I would put it here. Yesterday I was in contact with my Broadband provider, 'Three', who said that, as there was still no date for 5G getting to my area, if I agreed to stay with them for another six months, I could have one month free of charge. I thought about it, (for about five seconds), and said "Yes please".  :) . The six months contract is no problem, as none of the other broadband providers are any better, so I might as well have one month free.  :thumbsup:
