Two things to be happy about:

Results of my angiogram yesterday confirm I don't need the op.

Union Mills info arrived and told to add a loco to my already very long 65th birthday wishlist

I have had a few angiograms and the best experience I had was when one was done by a junior with the consultant looking on.  We cracked jokes and after they put that stuff in that makes you think you "need to go" I tried to negotiate a price for a supply as it was an incredible pleasurable feeling.  :smiley-laughing:

The other were all done by the head guys who treated you like a piece of meat on a conveyor belt and they caused pain  :veryangry:

Great news you don't need an operation and I hope it stays that way for a long time  :thumbsup:

cheers John.

Thanks John

Yes, that strange, warm feeling does stay with you!  ::)

The first two done at Harefield were painless and interesting. The last two were very uncomfortable so I'm planning on not having any more, ta very much!

All the best.

 ;D ;D ;D Cant remember that I ever got a warm feeling from the three Angiogram's I had but I did enjoy watching the TV monitor while the had a sticky inside my ticker.

Best was when the inserted a septal occluder into into a 3.5cm hole in my heart and opened it up like an umbarella, second Angiogram was not so cool the pushed through two blocked arteries so the could fit stents, I thought I was having a heart attack.

Its nice to see you are all clear and don't need any further work, watch your diet and stay safe  :thumbsup:
Keep on Smiling
Dave.

Happy today as I bought CorelDraw X5 (graphics software), and Microsoft Office Professional Plus (8.95 for the latter, and legal).   :)

Happy 'putering!

Looks a good deal on Office; which version did you get for that bargain price? I'm using 2003 but told by a pro user that the lastest Office isn't as user friendly as previous versions.

I'm still working my way through Photoshop. Don't think I'm up to coping with Corel.

Look forward to seeing some stunning results posted.

Dave

It's the 2010 version.  I found out last night on Facebook that because I work in a school, I get a discount. :beers:  I couldn't with CorelDraw though.

I like Photoshop, and I've been using Corel Paint Shop Pro X, which is limited and well out of date now!

After having got my used Fleischmann ICE-T (3 car set) plus two extra ICE-T coaches for 118. I have just seen that Waltons have them new for 463.

Ok mine are second hand and one of the coaches has some marks on it but what a saving!

Now to track down some more coaches at affordable prices - I've not been able to find out if they come with the interior lighting or if that is an extra.
