Re: Another One Bites the Dust!

Morning Guys. This could be it, I'm afraid. My body's gone all wrong and been rushed into hospital. I'm awaiting a CT scan - maybe tomorrow - but can't see any treatment that would allow me to be released. I feel very poorly. If I do get out I'll let you know obviously. If you don't hear from me - I...

Re: Education

Well, Mike, it's certainly an unusual topic for a thread and it's increased my knowledge of triolets by 100%. Although my knowledge of toilets remains about the same :lol: The best thing is the reminder of Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In from the late 60s. I adored that program and thought it was the fu...

Re: Airspeed's Lamb in action

Hi Mike. You're right, I had missed your photo update on the other post :doh: Anyway, I've seen them now and they're great. The video is fantastic, though. What a character that lamb is! He/she seems to have become the centre of the family and has got such a great relationship with the dogs, too. Su...

Re: Plane Driven...

Fantastic! You could have a lot of fun with that! Being grounded by weather doesn't mean you can't continue your journey. Scenery designers in FS will have to up their game to provide high standard roads now so that we can emulate a road/air mixed flight if VFR limits are too low :lol: Thanks, Peter...

Re: Another One Bites the Dust!

Keith - have you tried osteopathy for your sciatica? I suffered very painful sciatica (trapped sciatic nerve) back when I was flying and had quite a long time off work while the NHS tried different drugs and physiotherapy. Eventually I tried an osteopath and floated out of their place several inches...

Re: Bomber Command Exhibition Melbourne

Thanks for doing that, Mike. I hadn't thought of contacting them directly :doh: But coming from someone within the Country makes it more relevant and personal. With a lot of people visiting there and probably looking for more information about the RAAF involvement in Bomber Command I think the site ...

Re: Another One Bites the Dust!

Hi Keith. I think you're talking about Co-Codamol which is a blend of codeine and paracetamol. Codeine is an opioid originally sourced from opium poppies but now created without. It has the side effects associated with opium such as dependency so is fairly tightly controlled. It works with paracetam...

Re: Another One Bites the Dust!

It's great to know how many people are supporting me through this and letting me know their feelings. I'm well aware that cancer will affect a third of people directly at sometime in their lives so my situation isn't rare. It's not often been talked about in the past although it's more common to do ...

Re: Bomber Command Exhibition Melbourne

Hi Mike. That looks like a very worthwhile visit and a good use of your free train ticket. If you go, will you take a virtual me sitting on your shoulder as I'd love to go with you. I've looked at the photos on the website you've linked to and they are of RAAF 460 squadron. You'll possibly remember ...
