Hi all Wave Whether we like chocolate, fish & chips or even a "big-mac", what is true is the number of occasions where the so called experts have got their information to us, so spectacularly wrong over the years. The first that I was aware of food warnings was in my very early teens, where too much bread potatoes & milk was bad. So, misreading that, so many all but stopped eating & drinking it. My long time GP blames that era for so much of the brittle bone diseases that inflict so many today. Surely, a bit of what we fancy is what is needed with all in moderation I believe. "Now where's me cornflakes & full cream milk" Have a good day all. Wave

I wholeheartedly agree with you Philip, I eat most 'naughty but nice' food but have the sense to eat in moderation and I am quite happy to still being able to run and touch my toes and even walk the odd mile or two. Only yesterday we were told on a TV morning show that white bread is as every bite as good as the wholemeal with grains (more like parrot seeds to me). Also I have always taken full cream milk even hot with my nightly Ovaltine. Cheers to you all Cheers

My father had a stroke in the 60's and was put on a diet by the hospital to lose weight. The diet sheet was quite simple - no sugar, no sweets, no fried food, no cakes, only two slices of "diet" bread a day and the odd crisp roll, exercise was not mentioned. Not surprisingly he never managed to stick to it. I gave up sugar during the shortage in the seventies but apart from that most things go, especially the odd drop of home brew Cheers

Hi all, A train-line tragedy. Whilst the circumstances of this tragedy are not publicly known, it may be a timely reminder to us all to be aware of such risks. Whether the boy came into contact with ground cables or high voltage catenary cables, we just don't know. Until it flashes or goes bang, electricity is a silent killer. The high voltage catenary wires are set to minimum clearances so as to deter flashovers in normal circumstances. If we have adverse weather where the atmosphere is either charged or even ionised, those conditions can greatly affect the flashover distance, particularly if I as an example was standing close by, well earthed & with any exposed, pointed metallic conductor item on me. The 25,000 volts in the wire will do anything to make contact with earth. Sad Sad

Hi all Wave There are often more sides to an issue just as there are two sides to a coin. The rise in life expectancy is levelling off, according to this report, which is citing austerity as the cause, but could it be obesity & affluence?

One may think that obesity and austerity do not normally go hand in hand unless one believes that bad diet such as chips and bacon butties contribute to obesity. My niece left university qualified in forensics, that was three years ago and still cannot get a job in her chosen field. Or in any field. So, she now flips burgers part time in McDonalds and gets fatter every day, eating junk food. Her part time earnings of £82 a week do not permit her to indulge in a heathy diet. Yes, there are jobs available. Farm Foods at Jardine Crescent advertised for a shelf filler but as there was over eighty applicants she failed to get the job. I am ex-ambulance crew, when I look at the jobs available I realise there very few that I could apply for. This may also be of interest. Edited by member, 18th Jul 2017 12:23 pm

Philip, I have never had much faith in statistics of any kind these days - for what they are worth. Times have changed, so too our way of life. More choices (for most of us) but not for the disadvantaged, so life expectancy will vary for some but not for all. Do you agree? Just my humble opinion you understand.

Hi all Just spent our first night with the new LED street lights they fitted yesterday. Instead of the warm orange glow we had before, we now have a vivid white light that lights the whole close. I looked out before bed and it was like daylight out there. I hope these can be tweaked down a bit, otherwise we will invest in some darker blinds. Moan over, have a nice day.

I sympathize NormK. we have had bright street lights for a few years now. I had thermal blinds fitted in the end which are good for cutting out the lights and also useful in the summer for keeping the bedroom cool. I also have to make sure when I go to bed that the other bedroom doors are shut. We are on a corner so also side on to our neighbour who has a conservatory that they leave the light on all night and also a security lamp that seems to be continually coming on. My husband says you can't see when you close your eyes but I am sure you can. Moan over as well now, you will get it sorted, have a nice day too.
