  1. There is bad spelling, there are howling mistakes, and there those little slip-ups that make us feel better, perhaps even briefly a little superior, if and when we spot them. There are one of the most harmless form of amusement available to us in an increasingly rather correct and humourless world. Punctuation brings it’s own amusement: ”She ran downstairs and opened the door in her dressing gown” ”Quick!”, she said “ My husband is upstairs breathing in short pants!” Spelling can give problems - ( what a difference a vowel makes) The retirement accolade sen
  2. Common knowledge, I believe. Apparently, the person returned from holiday to find all their belongings in black bags on the corridor outside their locked office after receiving a call with details of their “new” posting on their way to work.Their punishment for not being sufficiently subservient.
  3. No, GPs were not financially involved in endoscopy. Mr Simon Stock was the main user, though there were others. Mr Upsdell did urological endoscopies, which also ceased. The equipment was mainly bought by the Welfare Trustees of the hospital at the request of Mr Stock and others .There was also funding by the League of Friends. The unit, the service and its equipment had been very highly praised by the Hospital Inspectors from the UK the previous year. Some of the equipment was due for replacement in the coming year and moves were taking place to approach the Welf
  4. A capsule endoscopy service was set up by surgeon Mr Simon Stock in Ramsey - over twenty years ago.
  5. It took me several hours ...to struggle through the first two. I could not work out how to answer the subsequent ones because I needed to work out what the questions were first. Anyway, I have just done a jigsaw in three weeks. It said “ 2-5 years” on the box.
  6. EU stance on OxAZ vacc. recently seemed strange - demanding more but denigrating it and reluctant to to use it. A case of wanting their cake - and not eat it.
  7. There have been millions of AZ Vaccine given in the UK. There is a well respected special adverse reaction reporting system in the UK( covers here) for any new medicine or drug called the ”yellow card “ system where ANY event that occurs that might not even be thought be associated with the drug or medicine is sent in There has been a special Covid vaccine section set up. It reports every week on UK Gov site MHRA There are unexpected things come up like you are much less likely to get reactions like chils, aches, sore arm , high temp with your second jab than your first
  8. Certainly crass and cringeworthy - but not “unforgivable” We all make errors.. - We don’t all have the strength of character to be able to admit to our errors.
  9. Ditto for 2 people I know. Also told me the letter doesn’t advise getting the consent form on line and filling it in before arriving for the vacc.
  10. 20% population of the British Isles have blood levels of vitamin D , as 25 (OH) D which is generally regarded as deficient. 70 % plus of our Vitamin D requirements are met from the effects of UVB from sunlight on our skin, the small remainder is from our diet. At our geographical latitude, this is insufficient from early Nov to Mid April.To make up this shortfall by diet alone is impractical There is a limit to how much oily fish, egg yolk, sundried mushroooms, fortified magarine and breakfast cereals one can consume. People with dark skin, people who rarely go out, care h
  11. The job description requires the internal candidate to be “ Pivotal” - it is an essential requirement - as it is mentioned several times - a “pivotal role” - a “pivotal member “ and whilst oscillating and spinning , the successful candidate will also be : “ Transforming a vision for the future into action, inspiring others and driving forward positive change” ”Driving forward the ongoing comprehensive transformational change” ”day to day management of operational business” ”part of the transformational works” before going back to being “
  12. How would such a scheme address the issue of funding its continuing maintenance? Road tax payers may contend that if they are no longer able to use it, it is no longer a “road “ for them and may their feel road tax should not be used for its upkeep. Cue dropping of term “road tax” . and await the adoption of “ vehicle licence, or individual transportation pollution charge, private vehicle road entitlement pass...active travel and environmental offset charge..
  13. The other week the number plate recognition vehicle was scanning vehicles driving along Bowring Road in Ramsey. They parked their vehicle at the entrance to a little lane between Vellikas and the IM8 car place. Whilst they were there, If they had turned their scanner towards the vehicle they had positioned themselves alongside, a black Alpha Romeo Spider which has stood there for a long time, ( Reg. No FMN 935D ) - they might have discovered that its tax expired 31/10/ 2014 It is still there...
