  1. Much more of this zap and they'll get their way🤬 Avril
  2. Yes!!! and it's bloomin' annoying🤬. I know there's an x to remove it, but I enlarge the cc page and have to keep reducing the page, x it off and then enlarge the page again every single time. I've unsubsribed to CC but that doesn't work. I've asked my grandson, and he says there's no way to knock it off permanently. I also have an ad blocker on. Avril
  3. This was said to him just 7 months ago, so if it has been discredited, nobody told his doctor. As to the question about informing the rugby team they are obese? Hmm, now let me think🤔.................... I'll pass on that, thank you anyway😬 Avril
  4. I know weight is important, but they are taking it too far now imo. Our eldest Grandson who is 38 hasn't an ounce of fat on him. He has the build of a rugby player, eats a very healthy diet, doesn't drink or smoke, weight trains at the gym 3 times a week and goes on long cycle rides every weekend. He was told by a hospital doctor that according to his height/weight numbers he was obese.😏 Unbelievable🙄 Avril
  5. That looks really nice, but what does it comprise of? I can see toast, blueberries, and I think strawberries............ Avril
  6. So true Graham. Many years ago my GP told me to stop smoking as it was unhealthy. He saw me look pointedly at his cigarette smoldering in the ashtray on his desk and said 'Don't do as I do, do as I say'🙄 Avril
  7. @indiana123 Congratulations on the birth of your Great Grandson Riley, and such a healthy weight he is too. My best wishes to you and your family at this wonderful time. Avril
  8. I have enjoyed Troopnig the Colour again this year, even though the weather tried it's hardest to disrupt it. The Princess of Wales looked beautiful although you could see the strain she's been under in her eyes. I couldn't help but feel sorry for Prince William, Prince Edward and Princess Anne standing on the balcony in their wet uniforms, they must have been so uncomrtable. They got drenched riding their horses back to Buckingham Palace. Now for some lunch, fish finger and salad sandwiches me thinks😋 Avril
  9. I care LL. I'm an unashamed royalist and will be watching Troopng the Colour from begining to end. Avril
  10. Don't wait until then. I'm sure you've noticed we rabbit on about everything and nothing😁 Avril
  11. I'm not on FB unfortunately. CC is the only one I've ever or ever will be be on. I know class when I see it😉 Avril
  12. I've just done that too bro and was about to post when you did. I had to expand it by 250%😲. I pointed it out to Frank and he said 'Is it ,a fox?' Wow! and I thought my eyes were bad.😄 Sis
  13. I confess I couldn't see the deer either, and I had my nose almost touching the screen. It was probably clearer looking first hand(or eye🧐) than via phone camera and posting online. Lovely outlook though, one I'd love to wake up to every morning. Sis
  14. Yes, I remember you posting that. Frank doesn't know about my fan club zap, I wouldn't want to give him an inferiority complex.😁 Seriously though zap, give wowzz my/our best should you happen to speak with him again. Avril
  15. Can you at least let us know if he's well? Avril
  16. I hear 'clear your cookies' often from my grandson and wouldn't know where to start, so he does it for me, the other cookies I can manage quite well on my own, so you're more tech savvy than I am kalos. I've also been told to 'right click' and I did, both upper case and lower, but that didn't work either.🤔😁😁😁 Avril
  17. Try refreshing the page or signing out and back in again, it always works for me Failing that you could always try a little feminine persuasio😉 Hit it😁. Avril
  18. I'm so pleased everything went well Bob. After Brian's happy reunion with his family I was hoping the same for you. I can only imagine how you must feel finding your family and one of them as close as Nottingham. Avril
  19. After this cruise you will be able to make a more informed decision about your future holiday plans and what you will be comfortable with. Our first holiday leaving Mum with my sister and BIL was a long haul 16 night Hong Kong and Bali which was booked before Dad died and Mum came to live with us. Persuasion from both my sister and surprisingly my Mum, and heeding the consultants advice, I reluctantly went. I found myself relaxing more as the holiday went on and came back rested and more able to cope. Mum had had a great time and apparently enjoyed fleecing them both at Brag😁 After that holiday I felt more confident in making our future holiday plans and which ones I would be more comfortable with.

  20. Good morning Sue. I have been in this position with my own Mum, as I'm sure many of us have, so can understand how stressed and confused you are feeling just now. I'm trying to be very careful and gentle with my words now Sue because I don't want to offend or upset you in any way. I was given a peice of advice from my Mum's consultant when we were worried about taking a much needed holiday. It sounded unfeeling at the time, but after giving it a lot of thought, realised she was right. Ok, here goes. No matter where you are in the world, no matter how much you worry or how much you neglect your own health it won't change a situation. What will be, will be. If the unthinkable should happen while you are away, you simply come home. You will be leaving your Mum in safe hands and with other family members for company. You can do no more. You must not run yourself into the ground and neglect your own health as that won't help anyone. Take your much needed break and try to relax a little and more importantly Sue, stop feeling guilty I hope I haven't upset you Sue, if I have I'm sorry.🤗 Take care.x Avril
  21. As a well educated person I was well aware that that phrase wasn't totally correct, but was the only thing I could come up with on the spur of the moment to try to explain my thoughts on this topic. I'm sure you understood what I was trying to say. So yes, on this point I entirely agree with you. You were being pedantic. Avril
  22. I'm really pleased for you Josy. That must be a big weight off your mind. Avril
  23. They will still be moving around the ship touching other surfaces. This is sadly a 'catch 22' situation, which is why I keep coming back to personal hygiene. Our little debate could go round and round in circles like the Oozlum bird😁 and I don't think either of us will change our mind on this. We will have to agree to disagree. I've enjoyed our debate, thank you. Avril
  24. More emphasis is put on food and beverage outlets as the cause of norovirus outbreaks than anything else, when it can be spread by touching any surface in any area or venue on board. It can also in some cases be airborne. We have been on 14 cruises to date, 3 on ships with bad norovirus outbreaks, and never became ill. There is no cure for people's lack of personal hygiene. Avril
