  1. I had something similar last year. Left eye was severely swollen for no apparent reason. Doc decided it was an allergic reaction, but to what I know not. Antihistamines helped but it took two courses before it went completely (and hasn't returned since). There were no apparent insect bites or other obvious reasons for it to happen.
  2. Dearie me, Fraser in "Dad's Army" had nothing on most of you lot. The Earth has been a ball of ice and a lot hotter than it is now (where do you think all the coal, oil & gas came from originally?) and will be again in the future. Humankind didn't have a lot to do with it then and won't in the future. Oil has been running out since the 70's but we still seem to have plenty. What will humankind do? Adapt exactly like it has always done. Anyway, not my problem, I'll be long dead by then. Now if we want to have a discussion worth having it's what ties all this together: population control - but that's too politically dangerous for our great leaders to touch with a bargepole. And yes, "renewable energy" makes sense when it's economically viable and there is no reason not to recycle or to keep our environment tidy. Littering is a pet hate of mine.
  3. There seem to be numerous "folk remedies" for gout, each more appetising than the last . Fortunately, as a strong supporter of drugs, they work for me.
  4. I can get Arcoxia (120mg tablets) over the counter which I use whenever I get a gout attack.
  5. Heresy. You put salt on dripping not pepper.
  6. Bird's custard is actually very good. Difficult choice between putting that or ice cream on the wife's apple pie.
  7. I take it you've never seen the Ba-Baas v New Zealand game from the early 70's then.
  8. It is played by women but not quite to the same standard as the guys, and watching women's Rugby League is still far more entertaining than men's rugby union.
  9. Hmm, just read this. I'm a "Rabid Brexiteer" and yet I'm married to a "Brown person" and have been to two others. I think your statement is arrogant, unkind and maybe says more about you than it does anyone else.
  10. Elephant leg kebabs. Most other things are available if you know where to look. Decent sausages are a rarity though.
  11. As JGF states there have been no stickers for visa extensions for months. Previously when extending the sprog's visa he was advised "We've been told not to order them". Why or what on earth that's about I've no idea but we just put it down to being in the Philippines (like so much else).
  12. Well it might be now but that's (apparently) not guaranteed for a lifetime any more. Nonetheless congratulations on the birth of a healthy baby.
  13. Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it. The USA showed everybody that making illegal something people want does not work. They just find alternative ways of getting the drug they want. I am of course talking about Prohibition. To my mind, (and this is just my opinion, I don't expect to change the minds of those who think they should be able to "ban everything" they themselves don't like), it would be far better to regulate and tax drugs in the same way as cigarettes and alcohol. Money raised could then be used to help people who want to quit. Sadly I think it's a debate that gets shouted down far too quickly. Please note I don't and never have done "drugs" other than alcohol and previously tobacco so I don't have any axes to grind.
  14. Bugs love it here, especially at this time of year when it's warm and particularly damp. Pneumonia is endemic and easy to catch.Only time in my life I've been in hospital with an actual illness. Living an airconned life is not ideal but I prefer it to trying to sit/sleep in a pool of sweat. Strangely I don't mind the heat when I'm outside and don't sweat too much. I can play a round of golf without having to resort to toweling myself down at all, unlike some of my friends who have to on every hole.
