Belle, he's in Uncle Mort mode.......

Stu, you're right on both counts. Like Life, the site gets a bit untidy at times.

What is 'The Daily Mail'?

What grabbed me was that all three daughters rang in the morning to see how I was feeling. Lousy actually and running a slight temperature again so I went to bed for a couple of hours and woke up feeling hungry. Made a chip butty. Is this a good sign?

PS. Forgot to mention....  Stephen Lawrence case....  Good result, sentencing today. What a story! I'm glad for his parents, they have suffered enough. Now, what about the others?

I forgot to mention something that might amuse you. About 30 years ago I was in Hong Kong and was told that a must have item was a highly coloured tin containing a small vial of a miracle cure, 'Po Sum On' decongestant oil. It is mainly Peppermint Oil, Cinammon Oil, Tea Seed oil and dragon's Blood. I bought it because of the highly decorated tin the vial was in and it's sat on my shelf ever since.I love the fact that the main advertising point is that they exhibited in the British Empire Exhibition of 1924!

I'm a great believer in Vicks Vapor Rub and similar medications and decided I'd try the 'Miracle Cure'. Not too sure about the miracle but it is certainly a very aromatic oil and I think I may stink of it as I have been putting it on my chest. I have an idea it is very effective and now I've got used to it I quite enjoy the smell!



Impressive eh?

You don't often see Shirlet Bassey in the Daily Mail·

One of the best things that used to be seen in the Daily Mail, until  it was outlawed, was fish and chips.

Is that the same Dragon's Blood that Granelli's used to shake on your ice cream cornet? Never realise it had medicinal properties.  I've googled this Po Sum On stuff, and find it is readily available on Amazon, along with the more famous Tiger Balm.  The ,latter once contained opium, but has now been reformulated to comply with current legislation - or so I have been led to believe.
Amazon also recommend "Wong To Yick" - which sounds like good advice to me.

They stopped making Tiger Balm Vesrion when they ran out of barmy tigers....when the Daily Mail ran out of General Trust.

We got the call from our daughter Carla at 1.30am this morning advising us that she had started her labour. Up out of bed and on to Silsden to look after Isla while Carla and dad Ant went to the hospital. Carla checked into Airedale at 2.30am and delivered our third grandchild Finlay Albert Donald at 5.26am weighing in at a nice healthy 9lb 12oz.

Various texts and circulation of first pictures during this morning and then another call to advise us that mother and baby (and father) would be home by 12.30pm. And so it was.. we have just arived home after initial cuddles, pictures and helping out where required. Left Carla breastfeeding Finlay who seemed to be most appreciative and not backward at coming forwards. Not slept much but still on a high. Welcome to the family Finlay.

Congrats on the grandchild. My daughter arrived home from Berlin today. Not long and she will be back in California. Nearest I have been to there is California sands near Great Yarmouth.
