  1. Zenith for the bolt. How one has to be made is a mystery in this day and age.
  2. Have you thought of trying the dhsc community stores back of Saddlestone? There's a guy who's quite a wizard with chairs, he might sort you out for a small fee. Just a thought, good luck with it all...

    Cut & paste

    Kate Beecroft asked a pertinent question in the House on the 20th of November 2018, regarding safety and procedures. She asked the minister for health, David Ashford:- "What areas, if any, of Nobles Hospital, would be considered unsafe if the same standards and inspections were applied in the same way as they are in hospitals in England?" David Ashford's response was quite comprehensive but I was drawn to one part of his answer:- "... the standards we have in the Isle of Man; yes, they (the CQC) should be monitoring and ensuring that we have proper clinical-governance, but they should be standards that are appropriate to us, not just 'carbon-copying' what they're doing across the water, which, in some cases, I don't think they are actually working..." It got me wondering whether, on the Isle of man, we are somehow suffering from different diseases and ailments and our health requirements were somehow exclusive. Here is a minister with a hairs-breadth of experience in running a health service questioning the judgement of professionals with many years of experience. A hospital is a hospital, is it not? You can hear this section of response around 5:38 or thereabouts... Hm-mm...
  14. Wasn't referring to you freggy. There's only the one jumped-up narcissist on here. And I'm not wrong there...
  15. Woolley. It is nigh on impossible to reason with unfettered narcissism and stratospheric self-regard. Engaging with such personalities is both frustrating and ultimately fruitless; the only benefit is to the narcissist - responding to such personalities just opens-up a platform - a vehicle, for their unguarded, barely disguised and very often unhinged, self-congratulation. They will feed off, and feel bolstered by any challenge and interpret any response, good or bad, as confirmation of their self-assured greatness, their unassailable intellectualism and specialty. When critically and robustly taken to task they will feign hurt and cry wolf. The one thing they can't quite grasp, above all else, is that they can be wrong, that they are essentially flawed and fraudulent. To this they would never acknowledge because their sense of entitlement and superiority just will not allow it. Don’t waste your time or effort on such individuals. Fortunately, the higher they take themselves, in the end, the further they fall...
  16. And a regulation crash helmet.
