Thanks all … in fairness, I did applaud the youngster for ingenious thinking and if nothing else, he did get rid of the dirt in those spots! As far as I can tell, it’s reasonably superficial, hard to catch a fingernail, so I’ll try the G3 approach. FWIW it’s a metallic light silver coloured car … and it is 20yrs old, so anything but pristine!

An enthusiastic young car washer had a go at our car at the weekend, and with great ingenuity, applied a brillo pad to some stubborn dirt. So we’ve now got half a dozen small areas of surface scratching. It’s a 20 year car so no great drama, but I’d like to remove the scratching if possible. I’ve had a go with T-Cut with no effect. Any other…[Read more]
Ian – amputation was my prognosis. Pretty immediately after I left hospital and bed ridden, my Dad popped a pulley into the ceiling, hooked a rope through it and onto a sling, so my good arm could pull my bust arm up and down in a very controlled manner. I then became obsessed with physio and 20 years later, doing great, no major downsides so keep going!
Motorbike crash 20 years ago, one of the injuries was complete shattering of shoulder, joint, cuff, ball. A maverick surgeon wanted to try and pin/plate/staple to allow other injuries to heal, before amputating the arm later (general consensus at the time was apparently no hope, chop it off). It worked out he was a genius and my shoulder is good.…[Read more]

Hi, following on from the help in my previous jacket thread, think I’ve whittled it down to one of these 2.
Needs to be full length zip, definitely warm, and will be used for lots of dog walking (I feel the cold) and general out and about. Not for climbing, working outdoors or high energy outdoors. Want warmth as the main thing.
Might have a chance for a Fjallraven jacket (short length parka style, quilted, hydratic polar model) secondhand. They look v expensive new and seem like they’re good quality … any real life experiences?
Am after a warmer than usual jacket as really feeling the cold these days – be used for general wear, dog walking (not hiking).
Gather the…[Read more]
Thank you all, really appreciated and it does give a boost in taking some action. So

– Googled clinics/functional medicine approach and spoke with Margaret Hills clinic, v helpful. Starting on their diet (and been really interested/encouraged by the number of references to how diet can…[Read more]

Interested in boosting my gut health – no significant issues (I think) but probably slightly sensitive, more so as I’ve got older. Really enjoyed the process of baking sourdough so wondered about making my own Kombucha or Kefir or something similar.
Assuming it’s for general gut health, any recommendations of what to start with and any good…[Read more]

As above, superb quality jacket in size medium. No rips or tears, zip is perfect. Very light use as I have another one I tend to use most of the…
thanks again all. Linda, I think your question is bang on … OA vs RA and simply looking at Google images and reading suggests OA. So she’s agreed to push our GP to get referred again and pursue it.
But from my reading as a definite non-expert, OA seems more likely? So advice this way … and thanks
OK, Mrs A is generally pretty physically fit and very healthy, looks after herself. She’s 51, a part time hairdresser and loves her job.
However, over the last couple of years, she’s seen a gradual deterioration with her fingers (index and middle), one hand and now both. The docs are suggesting Rheumatoid arthritis, a reasonably normal…[Read more]

thanks all – he’s a relative youngster so pension return less attractive at the moment. Funding circle sounds interesting – off to have a look

As above, assume
– investment period of 1-4 years
– risky options considered
– good if it’s relatively liquid but prob OK if to penalties if early withdraw
– the account holder is an adult so no child tax free options
