    I use a private podiatrist. She's worth it because she is a low carber.

    Just got my appointment for annual foot screening, whats more problematic is getting to see the podiatrist for my regular nail clipping due to a shortage of staff, at my last appointment I saw one that had been seconded from Birmingham  Shocked

    Don't be surprised if you see some of these around ...

    Well I didn't watch any of Children in Need on the TV but reading this morning that the sum of £46.6m was raised it would seem there are a lot of charitable people out there. I know banks and post offices also offer easier ways for each of us to donate - should we want to.

    "Simon Antrobus, Children in Need's chief executive, said: "Everyone should feel really proud. The remarkable generosity shown, and the amazing total raised, will go on to help change the lives of disadvantaged children and young people all across the UK."
    Children In Need aims to protect every child in the UK and currently supports 2,400 projects across the nation.
    Since its creation in 1980, the charity has raised more than £600 million."

    Following on from Children In Need ...

    It's Children's Day today ...

    Universal Children's Day takes place annually on 20 November. First proclaimed by the United Kingdom in 1954, it was established to encourage all countries to institute a day, firstly to promote mutual exchange and understanding among children and secondly to initiate action to benefit and promote the welfare of the world's children.

    Well that was a bit of a surprise!

    Rosberg announces retirement from Formula 1

    Formula 1 World Champion Nico Rosberg has announced his immediate retirement from racing, only five days after taking his first world title.

    The 31-year-old Mercedes driver made the announcement during a press conference ahead of tonight's FIA Prize Giving Gala in Vienna. He is the first driver to retire as reigning world champion since Alain Prost in 1993.

    I wonder who may be the next signing at Mercedes ?

    One of our grandchildren is visiting Butser Ancient Farm soon with the school.

    Visitors can Step back in time ... Butser Ancient Farm !
    A unique experimental archaeological site and a fascinating day out, nestled into the rolling South Downs National Park. The farm displays ongoing constructions of ancient buildings based on real sites, dating from the Stone Age through the Iron Age and Roman Britain, and finishing with the Anglo-Saxons. We also grow crops from prehistory and keep rare breeds of animals, including pigs, goats and sheep.

    We have a full programme of special events including fantastic Celtic festivals and workshops, such as metallurgy, Iron Age cooking, bushcraft skills or felting. It’s a truly memorable family day out on the Hampshire/West Sussex border.

    http://www.butserancientfarm.co.uk/

    I think it sounds a good visit ... and a little different from the 'usual' school day!

    Looks fascinating!

    I've been to the Weald And Downland Museum, my ex was hugely entertained by the medieval house where the crapper was like a hole cantilevered out from the upstairs wall.

    I've also been to West Stow but I don't think we ever made it to the Butser one.

    West Stow looks good Chris ... I loved James Marsden of the East Anglian Daily Times comment when he recently joined the team and staff at West Stow to find out what it was like to live as an Anglo-Saxon "No mobile phone, no emails,"

    Now if that were today's teenagers, what would they do Exclamation

    For reasons best known to itself my computer starting 'playing up' last night Evil or Very Mad
    I eventually managed to shut it down ... took about 35minutes, which is ridiculous, there was a lot of muttering under the breathe I can tell you !

    Turned it on this morning Sad  not good it was still messing about!

    Thought never mind I'll kindly ask my very own personal computer techno wizard to have a look Smile

    Which he did, and of course it wasn't a five minute job! We've had to make a few alterations and updates (for we please read Eddie) but here I am slightly later than planned sharing the story.

    Computers and technology are great if they work ... but Eddie and I sharing one computer ... just doesn't make for an easy day.

    Hopefully normal service on our respective computers will be back to normal after dinner.

    Chicken thighs with skin on stuffed with a parsley, thyme and butter mix.

    Following on from my Sunday post ... my computer is still playing up!!!
    I'm slowly coming to the conclusion that like me it's getting older and needs more time to do what I ask it to do  Exclamation

    Good job I'm patient!!!

    Anyway I've managed to get some posts up  thumb-up  and still haven't mentioned that Bottas will be driving with Hamilton for 2017 ... oops I just did  lol!
    I was quite pleased - how about you?

    Was it a hardware or software problem? Just curious, mine developed a habit of crashing mainly after I'd had too many browser windows open and especially playing videos etc. which I assumed was because parts of it are now quite elderly, in computer years anyway.

    However I haven't had the same problem since Kaspersky updated itself to a whole new version, so it looks like it was some form of software conflict all along. Either that or the dead spider.

    There seems to be a lot of hacking and an extra load of infected spam at the moment too.

    Reading around the blogs (that I do) there does seem to be other complaints of 'computers playing up' of course playing up covers a multitude of complaints.

    Take tonight I turned the computer on about 6.30pm ... it's now almost 10.30pm and it's only just working anything like normal!!

    It's driving us both nuts !!!

    Eddie says he will have a closer look over the weekend - but at the moment it is working slowly but ok.
    No rhyme or reason Mad
