And if the person concerned has only one hand?
The problem with social media is such details are unknown and assumptions are made which could cause hurt to the person involved.

Fortunately I have all my fingers, toes, etc. intact and in reasonable working order. But I'm a child of the 20th Century made lazy by advances in technology and manufacturing. Thirty years ago, I'd get up and walk across the room to switch channels on the telly. Now I pass the remote to MBH - can't even be bothered to press a button myself. I really should be using Speech-to-Text software to type this, but I can't be bothered with filling out a Purchase Order.

It wasn't aimed specifically at Steve, but it's something we all need to be aware of as a couple of times dyslexia sufferers have been upset. We just aren't necessarily cognisant of others' problem.

That is so true. Up to a couple of years ago, I used to look at 'fat' people and wonder what they were doing to themselves. When my late Sister had her final round of treatment for cancer, she put on an awful lot of weight. When I see a 'fat' person now, I have to stop and think.

The EDP local paper headline to a page of WW1 text....

"12,000 lives were lost in Norfolk during WW1"

They couldn't be bothered to honour those men by getting it right, 12,000 lives were lost BY men of Norfolk in Northern France and Belgium..

This is more a 'feeling sorry for myself' post but I've been to the dentist this morning to have 4 temporary crowns which involved 3 injections in my top lip. I am now many pounds poorer, am sat drinking coffee through a straw and with kitchen roll handy, and feel like I've been punched in the cakehole while I wait for the swelling to go down. In two weeks time I have to go and get the 'proper' ones fitted and will be even poorer after that. OK, I'll have a nice smile but C*******s has had it.

Commiserations, Mick.

Having had crowns fitted I know how you feel.

Guess these repairs are due to the heavy-handed but urgent event during your earlier ticker rebuild.

No chance of getting any help with the bills?

I know how you feel , particularly money wise!
Nonetheless, it will be worth it in the long run.
Meanwhile.........take it easy.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

I can certainly sympathise. A crown that's probably a decade old had a bit shatter off a few weeks ago. No pain yet, and I'm hoping it stays that way till the new year when I might have some spare money. :-X

I am beginning to think that I was lucky when I was the first into the NAAFI one night, in NI, and very shortly the first down on the floor  :-[

for some reason, they all used to turn on us when we turned up  ???

anyway, a couple of weeks at Cosford, ops, and a set of partial dentures, surgical ward so a bottle of Guiness each night [good for the blood]  :beers:

a few years later, into Wroughton, remaining nashers out, and a full set fitted.

those were of course in the days of RAF / ARMY/ Royal Navy hospitals, long sold off and now a ward in an NHS hospital.

so now, teeth like stars, they come out at night n :smiley-laughing:

still got the RAF nashers, real quality, doubt today's NHS ones would last as long.

just setting up a $60,000 piece of equipment ready for next weeks work.., it went back to the USA when it first arrived, as dead on arrival.
Now it's back ....the cover is fitted backwards and the fan is blowing air out of the fiilter (not sucking it in) so it's making a huge noise, didn't they check it and Calibrate it before sending?

Luckily I just work for the company and It's their money I'm wasting doing this..

My sympathies Mick. Having had a crown break off recently that was due to a split root and meant the total loss of the tooth just a week ago, I share your pain.

As for Christmas, your new teeth will be your crowning moment! :sorrysign:

Spot on, Dave. My front top 4 teeth got smashed during emergency intubation. I had them repaired on the cheap but they became discoloured after 2 years.
I've not even considered chasing any sort of comp as, at the end of the day, I'm still here thanks to their great work.

I wouldn't worry about your teeth Mick. If the news is to believed, all you will have soon is gruel, which just requires a good suck and no chewing.
I'm not sure if life is passing me by, or trying to run me over.

Well I am confused now, so I emailed Network Rail in August for information on two stations (Alfreton and Salford Cresent) mainly the architectural drawings of them.
They are both prefab buildings and they have given me ideas for my layout, so they have finally responded and err they don't have them. how can they not have the drawings of their own buildings I mean I have the drawings and stuff for my house as part of my housing pack from when I bought it!
