Re: Two favourite poems.

As an exile from Carmarthenshire thanks for reminding me about Dydd, Santes Dwynwen.
I’d forgotten all about her......found the derelict chapel on Google Earth......ah hiraeth.

Re: Introductions - tell us about yourself

Hi everyone I don’t often see many female comments on here but thought I’d add to this long thread. I’ve cycled for as long as I can remember, my wheels are part of my body I think! On my 65th birthday I set myself the challenge of cycling 10k miles by my 70th and as if 7th October 2019 I hit 12,250...

Re: Asthma Inhalers

Hi Mick. I was transferred to Fostair about a year ago and it has transformed my control of asthma. I have to take 3x2 puffs a day but that’s fine because it means I don’t need the Ventolin. It’s supposed to give 120 inhalations but I find I get much more than that. I’m happy to have transferred to ...

Re: One of those days! Tired! Tired! Tired!

Hello Brynpoeth

That’s my normal waking and rising time. Best time for yoga, indoor bike, bit of silence, then coffee and breakfast about 90 minutes later.
Mind you I’m normally in bed by 21:00!

Re: Why Couldnt the Red Brick Wall stand Corbyn?

As a Welsh coal miners daughter with an MA and now a retired headteacher I was shocked yesterday at reading of people who had stood on the picket lines with me in the miners strikes saying they had no choice but to vote for Boris. Of course they had a choice! One woman said she felt a traitor having...

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...

I had flu jab Saturday morning too, then 25 mile cycle ride, felt great all day. Very poor sleep all night. Sunday felt dreadful all day, just managed a gentle ramble. 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.
