  1. A good way to tellmivbthey are genuine, look at their hands. A homeless persons hands will be engrained in dirt........
  2. I have had surgery twice (same foot) had it done under a General anaesthetic, off my feet for 2 weeks. Only allowed 5 minutes in any hour to make a cup if tea, slice of toast and toilet. It takes a full 6 months to recover enough to wear normal shoes, no high heels these days, wedge and block are about all! Sketches are a must, you learn with age its all about comfort. I only wear dressy shoes if I am going out. Good luck. R
  3. My surgery has servedb4 generations of my family, I have seen a good number of GP's come and go in that time. My gran was one of the first patientswhen Dr excell took over from Dr a Rippon and Chandler Carterknowle road. I saw one if the 'old school' doctors a while ago and commented I wonder what Dr Excell would have made of the recent extensive alterations, and more recently that they seem not to do nights or weekends. When my mother had a heart attack the above old school Dr came to see her, he was still in his decorating clothes! He gave me his home phone number to ring if her condition worsened, but came back of his own accord,sadly she died but he sat with us for quite a while..he was brilliant when my late husband was ill, and with me when I needed Help to come to terms with it. If he reads this I hope he knows how he helped me. Sadly, along with many of the other 'old school' dr's have now retired mores the pity.
  4. I remember Ronnie Wood who I knew as uncle Ronnie, he had a shop in the Wicker. I can picture him now,always very smart and was good for a laugh! He was a friend of my father.
  5. Having a clear out of the shed and have some tins of paint, mostly half full and good quality, can any charity use them? Seems a waste to just dump them
  6. My that takes me back!! I was possibly one of the first customers along with my late father probably about 60 years ago(?) It was a thriving pub at one time, the saying was the landlord came on a push bike and left in a Roller!
  7. Can anyone point me in the right direction a serious record collector please.? I have numerous "LP" box sets including Neil Diamond, Carpenters, Shirley Bassey plus about nine Bassey single LP.S I If interested I will list them, many have never been played and in some box's there's six or more records.
  8. At my previous home i was with Virgin for 14 years, if I contacted 5 times that's pushing it, sadly they are not in my area. I have had to contact sky so many times in 4 times I have lost count I what options are there, who would SF members recommend or are they all rubbish in their own way?
  9. The coronation. Watched it at friends house with my parents I was 8 years old. After that, my father being called up for the Suez crisis, then the Munich air disaster, seein Sir Matt Busby in an oxygen tent.
  10. I took an 18 month contract out with sky recently, I spoke to someone yesterday and its going by £6 a month on 1 April, surely a contract means just that? Is it legal to do that? Any SF members know?
  11. My the names McTaggart and whittlestone brings Back lots of memories. They both lodged with my gran when they first set up the surgery! She had an extra phone installed in their bedroom, Alistair daughter Margo used to come and stay sometimes. That has to be well over 60 years ago.
  12. Of a company name who do "pulling out dents on cars" rather than having to have it rubbed down filled and resprayed I did have name and number, but because I didn't deal with it sooner, lost the contact. Can any SF members help please? Thanks.
  13. A friends son is on disability benefit. I don't know how much you are aĺlowed to have in the bank before they stop/deduct your money, she has told me that he wants to put money in her account., she isn't on benefits,would this be allowed or classed as fraud/ deception or something similar? I nothing about how this works as I have never had dealings with the DSS. Any information would be helpful. Thank you in advance.
