I would have to say that if you ever have stale hot cross buns, dunking them into coffee makes them gorgeous but if anyone is trying it don't sit next to them :) In our house they never last long enough to go stale and so it's an alien concept these days.

I’m not a fan of the window seat but I won’t put my bag on the inside seat.
Would be happy to stand up and let someone in if they ask.
Just need to stick my legs in the aisle.

The amount of people phoning me using their speaker phone when they don't have to. I usualy have to ask why they sound like they're on the space station during a solar storm then they admit they are on speaker with the phone some way off. (Car hands free excepted).

Eat banana and drink some water. I know people who are diabetic, suffer from this due to dehydration. (my mum who is diabetic does and it is really painful)

yep, here too. Left calf. Middle of the night. Very annoying.

Recently I have been eating bananas (as advised by DrRazor) - one every 2 days. It seems to work. Apparently one possible cause is lack of zinc and/or magnesium, both of which are found in bananas.

I should add that there maybe a correlation between my leg cramps at night and an over abundance of alcohol intake before bed.

Is restless leg syndrome the same as these people who when sitting have a foot constantly tapping/shaking?

Drives me nuts... sat next to someone on a plane doing it for 11 hours one time. I always think it's some kind of show of nerves. They have to know they are doing it.

I think so, I think it is the urge to move the leg. That would have been very painful for that person. I can only sympathise.

I've consulted Dr. Google in the past past about this when I have suffered similar attacks. For me, it was linked to being dehydrated. So drinking a little more water and also stretching the leg muscles before going to sleep seemed to help.

Edf energy phoning me to tell me they are going to increase my energy bill, after asking me security questions they then put me on hold, I got bored and hung up. You would have thought if they were phoning me they would have their information ready.

Now obviously we don't need to see adverts full of perfectly formed individuals with unobtainable physiques (for most of us).

However, I'm getting fed up with seeing ads full of grossly overweight individuals wobbling their sweaty bits about. I don't think it's a particularly healthy message that it's normal. It does have the effect of putting me off eating when I'm watching though.

I've been having a real problem with pain in an around my left toe for a while now. Doctor sent me for a blood test to check my Uric acid levels and whilst they were slightly increased, they didn't think the levels were significant. They gave me a course of gout meds which did f**k all. Then had an x-ray that shows osteoarthritis all around my toes. Waiting now to have a series of bones fused in my foot that should make life easier. But it looks like my dancing days are over!

Been there.

My pain is in my shoulder (slight) and predominantly hands, which is particularly bad at times; sometimes I cannot grip properly or open water bottles. Rheumatology insists it is gout. Gout medication, which I have tried twice now, and this time increased as per instruction has had zero effect, except for the side-effect of nosebleeds from the Allopurinol (the idiots know my medication history). I cannot afford that whilst on Apixaban, so I stopped it all. Appointment coming up in a month or so, but I have zero confidence in them. If they want yet more blood tests they can do one. I will just put up with the variable pain and inconvenience.

They add the transaction fee (1.7pct) in small stand-alone stores here for purchases under 10 dollars. Still, the vast majority pay with a card. Australia supposedly will be totally cashless within 18 months.

Local Safeway supermarket here has just put in those QR code self scanned exit points... So you don't even scan at the checkout now, just scan as you put the items in your Trolley. Then flash the QR code as you walk thru the POS checkout point.

I find that even when I use a debit card (not a credit card) I'm more often being charged a fee, including when it's over $10. And it's only when I look at the receipt that I see it.

That's interesting, I was chopping a cauliflower the other day (as you do) and I couldn't grip the knife hard enough with one hand to do it. Cauli's aren't exactly made of rock!

For instance Aldi charge .5 pct on all card deductions AFAIK.

Hi, I was getting night cramps which were waking me nightly up until a couple of years ago - seems to be an age/boozing thing. A friend suggested that I sleep with corks in the bed. Just get a small string bag or similar and place them in the bed, you do not have to sleep on them! I was very cynical at first but it really seem to work as night cramps now only occur very occasionally. A few friends have had the same reaction and if you google say "corks for night cramps" for example you get quite a few hits. BTW we've always done it with used corks (ie ones from opened bottle of wine). I don't know if this makes a difference but hic!

I used to get terrible cramps in my hamstring. Sometimes both going at the same time. Came from working outside in the hot New York summers and then sculling a gallon of beer in the pub on the way home. It was my mother( who believes in old remedies) who told me about the cork remedy. I'd be lying if I said I've never had a cramp since but the frequency of them dropped considerably.

Being done for paedophilia and having to pay lawyers:veryangry

Okay, maybe I should clarify:eek:

As I have said before, I belong to a charity club called the Lions.

In the 70s, when I was still in England, our Lions club donated football shirts to a team in the City where I live now.

It turns out the coach of the team was a kiddie fiddler who is now dead(good, I hope it was a bad one), but the City was sued, and now the City is trying to sue anyone that helped that team, including the Royal Canadian Legion and us.

We send our dues to Lions in the states, one big happy family, we thought. Until we asked about insurance:lux: which does not extend to Lions of Canada:veryangry.

So far, with just responding, we have spent $2,700 of donated money that is supposed to help disadvantaged people to the Lawyers.

I said to give what we have to the needy and disband and start again after, feck erm!

It sounds nuts but it is happening.

Sorry to here that Les, but happy to here it is not you personally, which I could not begin to imagine must be like.

That's shit, that's like Crewe sueing the kit suppliers, team.sponsors and anyone else who donated to the club whilst that bastard Bennell was there.

Bring Hedgehog shopping with you, I'm sure he is the owner of that degree, from back in the days when a degree was a degree.
We can then start a thread, "How many BBSers does it take to buy a light bulb"

"No good deed goes unpunished," springs to mind. Just curious, but have the press got hold of this story. How donations that should be going to the needy are being used to pay lawyers. A bit like the over flowing collection plates at Sunday mass. A lot of that money was being spent on lawyers who were defending the nonces who were preaching from the pulpit.
I think you're right in saying disband and restart. You know full well these lawyers will milk this to the last. They'll charge you 400 bucks to send an e-mail to the city's lawyer, most of which discusses what discreet restaurant they can use when the case gets adjourned for the 15th time.

Got all excited having read the Top Gun Maverick reviews and booked a ticket to see it next Wednesday. I then re-watched Top Gun after, I don't know, 25 years last night and realised how dodgy it was.

As the late critic Roger Ebert said at the time, it's a difficult film to review as the good bits are really, really good but the bad bits are just relentless.
