  1. HIs documentaries represent a good proportion of all that I watch on TV and I love them. May there be more birthdays for Sir David.
  2. Fishing, since I was 8.
  3. Good luck John, you deserve for it to work out.
  4. I’ve been “retired” since 21 September 1998. Not at all sure about the statement that life gets better each year after 70, certainly not my experience....Grin~ Glad you had a good day Cobber!

    Hi folks

    I’d become good friends with Milo Duane, and it was a kick in the bum to hear he’d gone. I did suspected something was wrong as he went quiet for a few months. Carla told me she was closing down his phone and internet shortly after he died. He was an extremely interesting person and had many friends here. It’s always sad to lose a good one and I often wonder what has been happening to people that just drift away from these places. So many good ones over the years. We’re going well thank you and hope the same is true for you.

    Hi folks

    Firstly it’s good to see you Duane. Sadly Milo passed away some time ago, cancer. There’s a thread here if you care to find it.
  7. Butch asked me to post this for your interest as he’s having some trouble ATM
  8. Oh so much gore! There could be kids out there seeing this. I mean you can see it’s braces, insides...everything! Grotesque!
  9. I think he means "go away I don’t want to be tempted”. No biggie.
  10. Sounds familiar! I simply don’t/can't use hearing aids when I wear headphones. Interestingly my tinnitus isn’t affected by headphones. Sorry to hear of your problems ‘cause it isn’t nice.
  11. Hearing loss can be compared to radiation exposure as the damage is cumulative! Any exposure to loud noise is damaging you! Any exposure to extreme noise is too much and ear damage can’t be fixed! I’ve had hearing aids for almost 20 years and none that I’ve had restore normal hearing. I’m told that to get some aids that will do that, I have to pay an extra $3k “top up" from what DVA allow. However DVA do cover all the costs of basic aids here given I gave a gold card. ($5k) I sit in my own world unable to make out what people are saying anytime we are socialising and people are chatting. It isolates me enormously and certainly spoils a social occasion. I even read a book on my phone sometimes because to be honest I get bored sh!tless! The inconvenience of having difficulty hearing in noisy situations is insignificant compared to things that may follow if you don’t protect yourself. I speak of Tinnitus and extreme Vertigo. Those things can mess your day (and nights) up big time! Please take this seriously and don’t risk your hearing, you don’t know how precious it is until it starts to fade.
  12. Had a killer BBQ last night on a beautiful evening! I wrapped bacon around a couple of bits of eye fillet and added flat chips cooked on the plate, a large corn fritter and a home grown egg. Yummo! I’m trying to wean Gael away from medium cooked steak and she raved about the “Medium rare” I presented her last night.
  13. Couldn’t you have fitted a bit more on the plate Rabsie?
  14. Tell me? Can they add a bit more to things....Grin~
  15. Hmmmmf! Must have looked at my account and figured I was too old as no email. Reality of life now ...sigh~
  16. Life is so confusing now! It used to be that if they had boobs they were women....Sigh~

    I’m sorry to hear about your problem ME, it makes things pretty hard if you don’t get a lot of sleep. Having just got out of that lovely bed in the caravan I have to say it’s like floating on air and is certainly conducive to sleeping. I’m extremely lucky to have found that I can influence sleep patterns with meditation.
  18. Mate once again I’m so sorry to hear of your loss. Nothing I say can help you but I am feeling for you right now.
  19. Hope it’s a good gig for you John with many more to follow. Maybe we can get back again though it’s unlikely it will be 2019. Love England!
  20. Being as old as dust we will probably retire before the fireworks start but hopefully many of you have plans that will bring you some fun and good company. What have you planned? While on the subject of a new year may I take the opportunity to wish you much good health and happiness for 2019 Many thanks to admin & moderators here for all their work in 2018...it’s a good place to be because of your efforts.
