Napoleon was a short person.

Best regards,


Joe (short person)

and I believe also a corporal  :)

Nothing wrong woth short or Nasty or a corporal its three things put together I excel at!! Fair to say I keep things old school and not very PC generally refering to people with various but inventive names.

Hope the SMMBO is feeling better even though its another night stuck in hospital

Very sorry to hear of the problems with your other half. When they were kicking me out after the triple bypass I was told it would be midday so got my sister & Mum to come for me but for some strange reason the pharmacy was shut and the staff couldn't get my meds until 6pm. I always think the hands on folks are just brilliant but the back up (mainly office staff) let the whole side down. I especially have issues with (a) my consultant and (b) the appointments office ::)

Not a good day for either of you! Hope the escape sheet gets signed off this morning.

Had similar experience while in hospital a while back. A Nil by Mouth morning due to camera down throat that didn't happen as they 'forgot' and went home at 4pm.

They also forgot to tell the ward so I was Nil by Mouth the entire day, despite my asking what was going on. Got a curled up, dry ham sandwich at around 6pm because 'the kitchen was closed'.

I know there's huge pressure on all the staff and have respect for what they do but I don't like hospitals much.

good news, paperwork snafu sorted this morning, and in due course phone call to say had arrived and she was good to go.

many thanks to those who sent her good wishes, and I agree, its not the grunts, its the pen pushers that are, as always, the problem.

got to build their empires / budgets - which then of course reduce what's available for the front line.

lastly, paramedic crew did get the choccies and biccies sent in [ a paramedic lives opposite us and took them in for me] and they also got my phoned in comments about their superb care.

so, all round, a great result.
only fly in the ointment is her discharge notes say 'see gp in 7 days' .............yer right  :no:

I wish all those who have been visiting hospital recently well, and apart from the pencil-jockeys, glad our NHS is doing well for you all.

Touch wood I have not needed the service often in my life (rather important appointment looming though  :goggleeyes:).

I just wanted to agree with the general feeling of annoyance at pencil-pushing and general bearocracy. I nash my teeth with increasing frequency these days, now being in a position where I don’t have to say “Yes Sir, No Sir, Three bags sir” quite so often.

This last week gone I had to catch myself from letting fly when informed that I “shouldn’t be all doom and gloom” about something which had gone wrong, by the person who’s responsibility it was to prevent it going wrong  :veryangry:

I expect this will be classed as aggressive / abrasive atc , but WTH   >:(

had a phone call about 22:00 last night from no.2 daughter, boiler had packed up and no hot water / heating.

as they live in a council sorry 'housing association' [think same people, but now paid more for doing less] she phoned the emergency contact number. [unsocial hours enhancement to pay] to be told she'd have to phone back this morning. so NO emergency service, and didn't even take details. she did explain she had two young children and an 8 week old baby, but not interested. could have got as much help from a recorded message  :veryangry:

so, phoned back this morning to be told it will be tomorrow before they can get anyone out. explained all again about children / baby but NAAFI.

Above post is shocking, and I have seen the same thing with private houses and so called “total care packages” on boilers.

Hope daughter is with hot water again ASAP.

WHY DO WE PAY A TV LICENCE ?

yet again, it happens every couple of weeks, 'no signal available - retune

so I do, confirm I am in the UK, tell it, as always, that I am in England, then tell it I'm in the South East,


so why does it finally provide me with BBC1 WEST ?

needless to say, with ten minutes it goes pixelated, and SWMBO cannot watch some load of so-called celebs prancing around.

needless to say it's my fault.

so retune yet again, finally manage to get it to give me BBC1 South, and before it goes t*****p again, I head for the shed.

why can't we just have the channels we want, and have them actually WORK, most of the listed channels are a complete waste of space.

I'd be happy to just watch DVDs, but you still seem to be mugged by the government because they say you still need a TV licence, even if you don't want to watch the drivel on TV.


arrrrrrrrrghhhhhh

I've no idea what you're trying to re-tune. Is it your TV, a set top box, your geetar?
I do have some sympathy in that occasionally I have to do a re-tune on my set top box (which is actually an under the set box ::)) and I end up getting Channel 4 Wales when I live in Lancashire ???
Not understanding a word of Welsh I just keep re-tuning until I get the English version back. PITA, though. :unimpressed:

the TV has freeview within, and that seems to be what keeps demanding to be retuned.
it seems to be getting more and more frequent, in fact this evening I've had to retune about 7 times in the last 4 hours.
worse than usual.

personally I'd be happy to watch DVDs, but SWMBO likes to watch the occasional program on TV.

so, obviously, over-ruled  :-[
