What with one thing and another, I'm a bit behind with umra at the
moment and, following a little operation[1] on my hand this morning, I
may not catch up fully for a while.

BT has been pretty thin on the ground recently, but if I've missed any
nominations, would people please email the offending posts to me for
assessment?

Thank you. THBAPSA.


[1] Well, they stuck a boodly great needle into the cartilage by a dodgy
joint and "broke it up". Perhaps "operation" is bigging it up somewhat,
but it's still going to make catching up with umra a bit slower.

Indeed. Hope it comes back better (presumably that was the reason for
doing it in the first place).

Dictation/speech-rec. software might be worth looking into; I think
severalrats have experience.

(I don't think there've been significant BTNs - or even BT lately.
[Since when might you have missed?])

The Robert and Lindy story is sure to generate some. Viagra indeed. I
wonder where he got it - prescription, or one of those machines in
motorway service stations? (Are there even any such anywhere near
Ambridge?) Or can you get it in chemists now? I haven't looked.)

I just noticed when amending the subject that it _is_ Thursday; clearly
the SWs have now got used to Cliffhanger Thursday. (Split-second too
long gap before the music, but that skill went I think around the end of
the Beetle's reign.)

And, to my total amazement, I have two face to face appointments in
audiology for 1st Sept. one is to discuss why I have seriously dry itchy
skin in one ear: requested by my gp. And hearing aids in need of tlc.
Wearing and fitting is an art and a science when trimming the plastic tube

Oh yes, same building, a Victorian type of portacabin. I’m not due a
clinic visit for a few weeks yet in normal circs when I’d have a yearly mot
of the ears but our Spanish friend who is an old hand in audiology says her
annual review was for Jan 2021 and at Bracknell not here. That suggests
some clinical appts have been farmed out. Who knows.

Yes hopefully they sort it all out for you with minimum fuss and
waiting. I know getting to appointments is not so easy with no car so
I hope that goes well too. I used to get itchy ears when I used wax
ear plugs every night because Capt Ex snored.

This is more than itchy. Lots of dry skin inside and out, plus a rash now
round throat and back of neck. Have had various medicaments prescribed,
and a photo examined, hence audiology checking before I pursue further,
covid has stopped me visiting audiology till now.

We can get aid maintenance locally from a clinic on the first Monday
of the month, without going to audiology for it . A lovely and very
helpful man does a session and you used to be able to drop in. He also
gives the free batteries. You do have to book that too now though. I
went a couple of years ago and took granddaughter, then 3 years old,
and he was lovely. We can also request batteries by post.

Our drop-in hearing aid clinic was in the library once a month. Run by a
charity, I believe. A friend of mine used to work in the same service. But
when Ray first got an aid and it wasn't working too well, he got new tubes
fitted and batteries at a local optician - no charge.

My gp wouldn’t sanction Specsavers, and our hospital is close-ish to home,
about the same distance as nearest Specsavers. Specsavers are the place
people are sent on the nhs where audiology isn’t easy-ish to get to.

Yes - in reality my left hand. It is not as bad as the right hand
(which will never ever be right again) but the delay is going to be at
least 3 months before the tests will allow the operation I suspect.

I am nuggering fed up with Lynda's sex life. Last night was the final
..er.. flop :) Yes we all know healing takes time, moods can vary,
confidence takes time to build etc but one or two scenes would be
enough, not weeks of it and then the whole episode. That is just
awful.

Also it is miserable mostly. The happy couple, Ed and Emma, who I
would like to hear more of and want to stay happy are about to be
dumped on again by the SWs. The spoilers in the Rt show that no good
deed goes unpunished and Ed's future one will cause trouble. They
already caused him trouble and have only just about sorted that. The
SWs seem unable to find any other family to harm!

Although it sounded as if we might get more of Kirsty and Gavin and
Philip, at last. Trouble is I don't want to miss important
information, which dribbles through so very slowly, so do listen. And
that episode last night had NONE and hit me full on. I would happily
have missed that.

Or can you get it in chemists now? I haven't looked.)
Public Service Announcement - yes you can buy it over the counter at
our local pharmacy (it has something to so with footwear).
I have no personal knowledge of price or similar - merely that I visit
the place so often these days and the size of the display means it
cannot be missed.
You mean it really stands out then?
Practically pokes you in the eye ...
Oh, Viagra for the eyes - does it make you look hard?
Stands upright and proud it does.

It would be more relevant to the prospective customers, though. They
could use slogans like "You're not the only one" or "what does this
remind you of?"

What with one thing and another, I'm a bit behind with umra at the
moment and, following a little operation[1] on my hand this morning, I
may not catch up fully for a while.
BT has been pretty thin on the ground recently, but if I've missed any
nominations, would people please email the offending posts to me for
assessment?
Thank you.  THBAPSA.
[1] Well, they stuck a boodly great needle into the cartilage by a dodgy
joint and "broke it up".
The needle or the cartilage?
Post by Sid Nuncius
  Perhaps "operation" is bigging it up somewhat,
but it's still going to make catching up with umra a bit slower.

That sort of remark can grate with some people.

Whatever happened to Vespa Paella and Vespa Curry: we used to take
them on camping trips when we were teenagers.
Kim asked a similar question on Facebook recently. Still available it
seems. I just remember the ever-repeating dried peppers :(

Certainly has a sting in the tail.

I remember a cartoon I saw *many* moons ago (1) in which a human and an
alien were standing next to an Ariel motorbike and the alien was saying
"I said 'take me to your LEADER.'

(1) Doubtless in Motorcycle News, to which I subscribed at the time. (I
was also then a member of Dave Bickers' Fan Club!)

You can certainly still get Chow Mein (or Ching Mao as it's known in my
family. I have one in my food cupboard at the moment. Just lurve the
crispy noodles!

I used to wonder if you could get those on their own in bulk, but never
found them (admittedly, I don't remember looking very hard).

Still chuckling over Sam's concept of a rather "camp" fire!

I think there's still one somewhere in the depths of a cupboard here -
in reserve for the direst of dire emergencies only.

Over the last few months I have been given a few odd meals. The
explanation given was that they were bought during a panic buy in early
virus times.

My definition of a bad lockdown was one where I needed to find a use for
the tub of banana nesquik.

I've had a good lockdown, thankfully.

Wofe bought some UHT milk in the early times of the plague - which I
found strange since I was fairly sure she would rather drink pond water
than put up with the smell of UHT.
We have finally used up the last drop by feeding it to a neighbour's cat.

I was thinking about banana Nesquik only a couple of days ago.
Specifically, that I'd forgotten Nesquik existed and that I haven't had
any for about 45 years.

They really have lost the plot haven't they?
Yes!
Great comment in today's Times on this theme "As if Lynda Snell wouldn't
know how to pronounce bruschetta"   LOL
I remember those from the 60s - mods used to drive round on them and
they sprouted numerous mirrors (the vehicles, not the mods).
No, Shirley that would have been the Readymill made by Vespa?
Whatever happened to Vespa Paella and Vespa Curry: we used to take

Not the Chow Mein?
I suppose it might be hard to crisp up the crispy noodles over a camp
fire (or even a straight one).

I think the Chow Mein needed the most pans to cook, the others were
simple. At least until pot noodles came along.

We were talking about food, your swerve to pot noodles was somewhat

I'm still a tad groggy (and have an engorged digit[1])
Lynda and Lilian would be envious.
If I understood that I might consider it as bad taste worthy of nomination.
Lynda was ready to resume sex but Robert can't perform as he is
worried about hurting her. He confides in Lilian, who is having a talk
with him about it as Lynda told her about it and she promised to help.
Lilian gives Robert some of Justin's pills to help.
Robert having a quiet word with... Lilian.
They really have lost the plot haven't they?
Well, it was FAL having the word because Lyndie let out more than she meant
too. Helping Lyndie feel more positive about her scars by using her dress
sense is the right thing though, it was the rest of it once FAL had got the
g&t and wine involved.

What with one thing and another, I'm a bit behind with umra at the
moment and, following a little operation[1] on my hand this morning, I
may not catch up fully for a while.
BT has been pretty thin on the ground recently, but if I've missed any
nominations, would people please email the offending posts to me for
assessment?
Thank you. THBAPSA.
[1] Well, they stuck a boodly great needle into the cartilage by a dodgy
joint and "broke it up". Perhaps "operation" is bigging it up somewhat,
but it's still going to make catching up with umra a bit slower.
I don't know what's going on here: nothing worth BTNing for ages then
three come along in the same thread. BTN, BTN, BTN.
...and GWS to the OP AKA MOPMOB
I'm still a tad groggy (and have an engorged digit[1]) so I may be
missing a subtle gag here, but could you be a little more specific about
your nominations please, Nick?
Sorry: I think it was just a sudden rush of blood to the head from
seeing so much inuendo stuffed into so little space. On reflection, MV
seems most appropriate for all of them and I withdraw the shotgun
BTNs.
