  1. Morning, we had our's done a few years ago now ours are a straight up and down little box semi's both my neighbour and I had them done together so he could get a straight run on putting up the soffits fewer joint's, looks tidy, only one caution though, some near us have had white boards which need washing every so often some have brown which don't look bad we had black and we face due south so over the years the drain pipes have started to fade to a grey'ish colour obviously a cheaper grade of plastic for the fall pipe's, may be some thing to ask about . Total cost of two men plus scaffolding over two day's with material £2,500, I said it was a long time ago.
  2. Recived a e,mail today about a book I ordered from Amazon the book was paid for and postage was free, the e.mail from, [ noreply@formresponse ] acting for [DHL-EXPRESS] said I owed £1.99 in shipping fees before it could be delivered and I must make this payment today, it then gives me an option to complete my payment before the package can be delivered, in other words get my bank details. The give away that this is SPAM is if you click on the [service-dhl@support,co,uk] part of the senders e.mail address it gives 25 other people who got the same e.mail, and DHL. Do Not deliver Amazon parcels. Just one of many scam's.
  3. I was once a five times a night man now as said nothing to drink at least three hours before bed especially if you are diabetic, medication Solifenacin one with breakfast one after tea, Mirabegron one a day after tea thats three a day does it help you ask, I still go at least twice a night some times it's just an urge some times a trickle, if it's playing on your mind waiting for the urge then you will never have a night's sleep.
  4. Hi Victor, Sounds intresting.
  5. The more people, men, put their experiences of having prostate cancer or investigation into prostate cancer on this forum, how it went for them, it was not as bad as they expected then other's might over come the trepidation of going to their Doctor if they don't feel well. Just a thought. :)
  6. In my case since the opperation in 2013 some times you think about what you miss the spirits willing but at 70 the body has failed me, so you have a cuddle and read a good book.
  7. Get away with you, if it works your never to old.
  8. The medication I'm on for what's been called a over active bladder by my Doctor, it's Solifenacin two a day, Mirabegron by Halamshire Urology one at night, also not to have any thing to drink after 5pm especially tea, coffee and alcohol, small amount of water or milk / Ovaltine is best for you wether the medication affect's your sexual prowess I don't know but tea, coffee and alcohol do. Every one has a different story to tell nealy every man at some time in the later stage's of their life has Prostrate Cancer it is a slow growing cancer some men die of old age never knowing of their cancer and it is found more prevelent in the ethnic majority. Going to the toilet multiple time's in the night make's me tired and the urgency while out shopping does not help so you plan your shopping around where there are toilets, isn't it nice to get old.
  9. Sorry I cannot help you there that was back in 2013 but look on line or, if you can call at your Doctors surgery, when I was told how bad my circumstances were I was shocked to be told what I had and how long I may have if it was not treated, every one thinks no it cannot happen to me it's some one else I was fit working i'm now retired not as fit but alive. It took me eight months to get over the operation I had a radical prostatectomy with radiotherapy follow up at Weston Park, they were brilliant so careing now it's all done by a surgeon operated robot so the operation does not take as long and it's key hole surgery my operation was classed as the equivalent to a women's hysterectomy for the stress it put's on you. I cannot stress to any man out there if you have any symptoms of exessive tiredness pain in the lower back and leg's the feeling of some one has kicked you in the ball's during and after sex get it seen to.
  10. I’m 69 my experience not pulling punch’s. Every man should know what your Prostrate does it is a stop tap for peeing it produces fluid for your reproductive system so after feeling tired with leg and lower back ache and a sex life that was excruciatingly painful because my Prostrate was killing me I had the finger test, which is not half as bad as people make out, after a biopsy I was diagnose at the Hallamshire Urology with Prostrate cancer in November 2012 opperated on in January 2013 not really given a choice on the scale of 1 good and 10 bad I was 9 they had me in as quick as that five hours in surgery, before it could spread to my Lymph glands then the rest of me if not there was a good chance I would have been dead in five years may be less. Down side because they took away my Lymph glands from there I developed lymphedema , the build-up of waste fluid which the body normally gets rid of, swelling in my legs but over the years this has settled down now they just ache after walking for a long time. I went back for six weeks of Radio therapy at Weston Park just as a precaution to mop up anything missed I now have a PSA level of 0.0003 which is good and six monthly check up’s, the only really down side is they took away muscles that give you an erection or anything to get hold of when going for a pee, can be messy if you’re not quick enough and hence the sex life is practically none existent but they do have a department to help with that and when you need to go you need to go because the stop taps not there but what’s the worst no sex life or not being here for my family when they need you. If your dought full about what to do go and talk to your Doctor or the Macmillan nurses they are very good kind and listen and don’t be a whoose about the finger test because you think it will not happen to me it is a silent killer.
  11. Thanks for that Dardandec. It's called the VDRS "Police Vehicle Defect Rectification Scheme" "When a police officer finds a fault on any vehicle that is, or will be, required to have an MOT test certificate, they may issue a Vehicle Defect Rectification Form instead of advising or prosecuting the driver or issuing a prohibition notice. Once the defect is rectified, the form is endorsed by a Tester to confirm that this has been done adequately. The driver and/or owner must then return the completed form in the manner instructed on the form within the specified time, usually 14 days to avoid prosecution for the defects. Alternatively, to avoid prosecution, the driver and/or owner may produce evidence that the vehicle has been scrapped." --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Another question, is it true that your, third, brake light is not on the MOT check list so if that's out the Police cannot stop you for that and as long as the other two are working your car is up to the legal requirments.
  12. Question, how do you stand on this with the law, I call it the bathroom incident you know the thing where you go into the bath room put the light on come out turn it off go back in and ping the bulb goes, same with a brake light mine reflect in my garage doors before I sent off so I know they are working, after a couple of presses on the pedal ping the bulb goes my car tell's me I have a bulb out, I all way's carry a spare, mine is a Ford Mondeo and it is fiddely to change working blind by feel only, next PC pull's you over for having a brake light out you tell him your story, it was working when I left home and show him your spare, does he still slap you with a £60 fine or give you the benefit of the dought and let you go.
  13. Hello, thanks for that Enntee, looked a bit more in to it, RARE GEORGE FORMBY SENIOR 78 " JOHN WILLIE'S RAGTIME BAND Old time musical like City Varieties Music Hall Leeds, There was nobody musical in my family.
  14. I presume it all depends on which area you come from or live with it's coming down like stir / stair rods my Mother was from Crooks my Dad from Jump in Barnsley his parents use to say, "Here come's John Willy hat band " no idea what it refered to.
