    Hi John.
    Sorry I'm late in picking up on your latest attempt to get a bigger pension. {It wont work mate] It was my wife's birthday and as the kids? work different shifts had to have two runs at a dinner and drinks, so haven't been on the Comp for a few days. But for you; what a few days, keep supping at that pipe mate I had one last year, wished I could have got a supply. Hope you are over the pain sooner than later, take care.

    #23. Think the pipe is the reason why the Bondi Beach lifeguards don’t want to lose their jobs , seen them pull it out at various times like Alladins Magic Lamp.But I can vouch for it working great , even though might have to go into rehab. Some time in the future. Cheers JS

    Ref.to the above the real pipe of Peace, seems to me it is following some of the real innovations of past medical advances and getting much of a cold shoulder.much to the detriment of people who could use. One I do remember and always will was a wartime need and was still on some merchant ships after the war for a number of years ,but later followed the usual short sighted trend of going the way of all useful ideas. That was the disposable morphine injector ready loaded and ready to go, they were composed of a triangular tin container and just required squeezing into any body part and throwing away , a casualty could even give to himself. Anyone who has tried to fill a glass syringe from a glass capsule under trying conditions with shaking hands will know what I am talking about , some people who have authority for keeping good ideas on the market shelves so to speak , have very little idea of real conditions in places of conflict and live on cloud 9. They live in a world of their own , fully sterilised with all the trimmings , what a bunch of plonkers . Cheers JS

    John, your heart rate at some 72 is good, hope the blood pressure is in similar condition.
    Yes ready made syringes are good, had to\ have blood thinners for 28 days after Prostate op, all came in ready to use ones, so much easier.

    As to falling off ladders, roof, trees as I have done several times, the secret is to go with the fall not try to stop it.
    That s where the damage is done, so if the top comes off the Brandy bottle just let it lie there until later.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    Suggest between sips put the top on, it is known to evaporate at rate of knots

    Had more than a few falls myself. Was contacted by a local NHS organisation called 'Falls Prevention Service' who all free of charge call out to assess you and then put in place an exercise programme. Its all to do with us old togs losing muscles around ankles and these control your balance. Very necessary is this and its well worth you seeking this service out as all declines in this area are bad and restrictive for you.
