Re: A nation of hypochondriacs?

Hi Cugel

Couldn’t agree more about the ‘fairy cakes’. For us it’s most likely to be a thick slice of fruit and nut cake......plenty around now with Christmas on the horizon.

Re: A nation of hypochondriacs?

Hi Mike, in answer to your question what’s the 5% non vegan

I’m vegan in everything except on a long ride when the only cake shop we can find is non vegan. Hubby is vegan at home but eats fish or meat when out for a sit down meal. Hope this clarifies for you.

Re: A nation of hypochondriacs?

While I can agree to some extent with some of the proposals here I have a couple of things to say. My husband and I are, fit healthy, eat 95% vegan, exercise daily and at 68 and 70 respectively feel we have been fortunate in being born at a time when death was not a nasty word. Talking with some of ...

Re: Asthma Inhalers

Ive been asthmatic for the last 40 or so years and now at 70 after numerous trial medicines have been prescribed Fostair 100/6. It works very well for me, taking 2 puffs three times a day. It is a preventative more than a reliever, Ventolin, which I only take when necessary. Fostair claims to give 1...

Today I’m 70 and feel good again apart from sore arm still. Apparently over 65s this year having a different stronger dose age so ma...

Re: 50 years ago

Have a great time Mick revisiting old places, situations and memories. Make new ones too.

My brother trained on Raleigh in mid 1970s, he loved it. He died two weeks ago, the veterans in Cardiff doing something musical at his funeral.

Re: Handwriting

I love writing with a good fountain pen. In fact I have four fountain pens gathered over the years and still use them all, each has a different colour ink. I am proficient on key board but there is something sensual for me in writing with a pen full of flowing ink. The eldest pen must be about 50 no...

Re: Where are you going tomorrow?

24=mile ride to Mudeford from Southampton, late lunch at the Noisy Lobster on front. Stay overnight in a great guest house we know then back home Saturday. Hubby with cancer can only manage 25-30 miles at a time but he’s doing great. YD

Re: What shorts?

Hi,

My hubby has been renewing his cycling clothes and came upon Madison. They look tailored, are shower proof and he says they are very comfy, so comfy he’s bought a second pair.

Re: English Language - what "Does your head in" ??

Yes Mick, that’s right as far as I’m aware. I do know that spelled is an acceptable alternative.
