Just had my cat put down due to terminal health problems.
18 years old.
Doesn't get any easier no matter how many deaths one experiences. :'(
To be called pompous and arrogant - hell of a come down.
I tried so hard to be snobbish and haughty.

So sorry to hear that, as you say, it does not get any easier.

That sucks mate. I've a 17 yr old cat with health issues and I'm dreading the inevitable day.

I take solace from the fact that as a responsible caring cat owner, you enrich each other's lives, and I take comfort in having the honour of being their caretaker.

Commiserations. We've had it twice, plus one that died when she was in for neutering. The good thing is that you know you are doing the right thing and preventing suffering.

The Chairman is finally admitting our systems weren't up to handling this second wave.

One of my trailer tyres is cracking due to age and lack of use and the spare was even worse. I need the trailer this weekend, so rather than have the expensive hassle of having new tyres fitted (and the problems of getting them in by Friday), I decided to buy a pair of new wheels and tyres, which works out cheaper than a pair of fitted tyres and to keep the good tyre/wheel as a spare.

 I was bouncing back and forth between different adverts and managed to click on the wrong one that used an identical picture, so instead of 10" wheels for 4" PCD hubs and 3/8" studs, I've got ones for 100mm PCD hubs and 12mm studs :( I can either pay 20-odd quid to get the new tyres moved onto the old (and scruffy) wheels or pay 46 quid for replacement hubs to fit the stub axles and get a replacement spare later. I've decided on the latter.

What a waste of money and time due to a moment not paying enough attention.

Although, to be fair, are anyone's? The news just now was stating that per head of population, the UK is performing more tests than any other European country, which suggests that no matter how many were made available, it would never be enough.

Local news covered a school today where one kid was sent home with sniffles but no test confirmation and thirty parents and children plus siblings from their bubble all wanted tests despite having no symptoms.   That's over 90 test requests all not meeting the test criteria, no wonder the testing system has crashed if that's happening all over the country.  SHEEP leading SHEEP.

I must admit that if one of my children had symptoms, or a classmate did, I'd want them tested ASAP - but that's because my wife is classed as vulnerable and it'd be nice for both her and my children to not actively avoid each other for a fortnight and for me to not have to (because of spending time with the kids) sleep on the sofa to avoid the possibility of passing it to her.

I agree so would I if the test worked, but the tests biologically don't work if you don't have symptoms, so the 90 odd people, if the got the tests they are demanding, would be a waste of tests as without symptoms the tests are meaningless.

The tests do not detect incubating Covid19.
