    Makes you wonder when reading things like that but they aren't all the same. My Son dropped out of School in year 10 due to various reasons - told him he needed to find substantial employment before doing so and 2 days later had secured a full time job at the Supermarket he was working as a casual. He fronted the owner and asked him to put him on full time and that he wouldn't regret it. Within 12 months was filling in for Managers when they were on leave then started an Apprenticeship as a Butcher in the Meatroom there. Qualified and became the Meat Manager before he was 20. After a couple of years decided he didn't like retail and has gone to Uni and is training to be a Nurse - yes, he fits the stereotype for a Male nurse. He's just turned 24.

    Not sure what it says about a Nurse being a qualified Butcher though - still trying to work that one out in my head.

    Very droll, Simon.
    If you don't like trucks, stop buying stuff.

    I watched an international news program yesterday and the story was about Afghans selling their kidney to get money to buy food for the family.

    My 'er indoors has managed without a 2nd Kidney all her life. It took her a Migration trip to Adelaide for us to find out the reason she was in pain for years. UK Doctors couldn't find the problem. Seems one of the buggers was restricted due to it not forming properly so out with the daggy one & she is quite happy (?) to live with just one. We have discussed the chances of that one failing so no option to do otherwise except to live with it & maybe donate one of mine if they will have it & that one isn't shot as well.

    According to the Sturgeon the remaining one is extremely healthy.


    Still, it may never happen & Covid or summat could bring her down instead. Or me.

    No need too. I had one of those when I was laid up in hospital 20+ years ago after my major accident. So I can elaborate some details for 'ya ...
    She did a absolute fantastic number on my arm just trying to get a IV drip going for me.
    Ended up badly bruised for a few weeks(no pain, just hideous bruising), but more importantly my left arm was inoperable being broken, and she'd struggling to insert the tube to tether my useful right arm to the IV and painkiller drip .. so now both arms inoperable when trying to eat!

    Great stuff.

    Eventually another nurse came along and correctly used my broken left arm for the drip
    Cheers,
    Arthur.
