So she said go.

She's removed her ring and friends are supporting, one works in a solicitors
I'd say he deserves to be punished for all that, but he might enjoy it.

Cancer is a expletive.

A friend at work has spots on his lung and been told to make memories with his kids, 9 & 11.

As he is unlikely to see 10 years.

Having had a mum who survived cancer. I understand what's he's going through, enough to ask how his wife is.

Understandably she is devastated.

This is very sad and such a worry for all the family, Here's hoping he fights this and lasts a longer while

4 people I know now, have recently died from cancer. All in their 50s. It does make you re-evaluate things and what's important. It's always the nice people too.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

Putting this here as a moan rather than issue with TV.

I hate the move to default being HD as I still have CRT TV HD channels switch it from Wide to 4:3 so I have to adjust screen form when HD plays. HD also takes more storage on TiVo. And most stuff doesn't warrant HD anyway.

You mean you haven't got a 10ft wide LCD ?

tbh unless you've got a silly sized tv, the difference is marginal. And as you say most stuff on cable was never made in HD. As for UHD, 'Emperors New Clothes' methinks....

There should be an option whether you want SD or HD channels prioritised in your channel order.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

My worktop oven/grill unit has just suffered element failure. Not quite pyrotechnics as I saw it going and turned it off. Something else to need repairing.

Not too hard to repair it yourself though. Even I managed it when mine went.

No sweat Mr K, I have a replacement single bar element from a previous repair.
