    Southgate bye bye...... tonight was Eng v Cro all over again.... he's learnt nothing.....

    Interestingly (well, just a tiny bit), all 4 semi finalists played all their group games at home.......
  3. So, if going by google figures are correct, over the the last 5 years, 84 people a day in UK die of flu (obviously more in the flu season)........ we're having 8 people a day dying, and that's a crisis?????? It was a crises, not sure what it is now
  4. Hey Blu...... if that's true (I've no reason to doubt it, but haven't dug) I'm a little surprised..... being a nurse on a covid ward since last May (and since Jan the only Covid ward in my hospital) my mind pointed me to the trifecta of HTN, T2DM and Obesity....... back in December every patient in our ICU was over 100kg......... Can you tell me / point me towards more info on Selenium pls...... I'm sad to say I'm quite ignorant on that.......... Cheers James

    Enjoyable game....... I wanted Scotland to win, but wasn't overly bothered, and hats off to the Czechs, whom I always think of being a bit boring and physical....... a bit of a bogey team for England though, at times...... I thought the ref had a good game, let a lot of 'soft' stuff go that other refs would whistle for....... I wish he was reffing Fridays game......... awesome 2nd goal, hats off for that......

    Not that I'm massively bothered, but Ole should have brought on Henderson for the shootout.......

    Good Songs Ruined by others

    I really like the Broken Social Scene version....... but that's probably more to do with the fact I really like Broken Social Scene LWTUA is one hell of a song though (funnily enough the first version I heard of it was by Paul Young. Was on the radio, stopped me in my tracks. I never heard the original til later)

    Good Songs Ruined by others

    I was a terrible music snob back then, would spend a small fortune each week on newly released CDs........because Amy Winehouse had totally passed under my radar, there was no way I could then like her ha An example of a song that is different yet equally beautiful, is the song 'Heartbeats'...... The Knife original is amazing, and Jose Gonzalez brought a beauty to it

    Good Songs Ruined by others

    Johnny Cash version of Hurt is jaw dropping, to me I was in Aus 99-07,and missed a lot of the Amy Winehouse getting popular.......... I can't listen to her version of Valerie though, having bought The Zutons album previously
  12. There’s been some ridiculous pics knocking around of well known people ‘receiving’ the vaccine with no needles / caps on, defo....... it’s hard to see, I can’t zoom on my laptop, but zooming in on phone this does look legit.......... NHS uses safety orange needles though, so the cap is attached, no cap attached to that one......... I guess we’ll never know for sure
  13. I'm not convinced it is..... to me, it looks like a 1ml syringe with an orange subcut needle attached......... though it should, I think, be an IM blue needle
  14. Again, I'm not going to judge, but that really must be a living hell.......... the Ricky Gervais show (ah can't think what it's called, but set in a residential home) shows perfectly that some societies value their oldies, but some find them a burden......... personally I don't think there is a one size fits all answer, but can't argue with your comments....... just very, very sad all round *** Derek*** was the show, great TV, and I don't really watch much TV..........
  15. Hey DC2, hope you're well. No judgement here, however many nursing home residents don't have a choice, the Mental Capacity Act has taken it away.......... Cheers James

    This 100%
  17. Yeah, my thoughts too.......... we had a nurse doing bank shifts on our ward whom stated she was in Aus earlier in year and was asked to leave because of covid.......... I have no idea how true that is, though I don't really have any reason to doubt her......... when she found out I had dual nationality I thought she was going to ask to marry me, so she could go back

    No Lineker? I think better than Owen (granted, a very different player)......... Ashley Cole...... may have been a d1ck, but what a player..... I never really appreciated him til he'd gone
  19. Buddy, fingers crossed for you. I'm guessing you're in the north, so not sure if it will be the new strain....... however, my ward manager sent an email out yesterday, saying she had been to a meeting, where they said (these are her words I'm quoting) 'The evidence so far is showing this variant is causing less severe disease however it spreads more rapidly'...... now I haven't asked for clarification, haven't spoken to her about it, but again, fingers crossed

    Realistically that's probably the best result for Man Utd....... they'd probably be 2nd in that group even if they had won last night, with a 2nd round game against Bayern, Real (maybe), Juventus or Dortmund to come....... they were never going to win the Champions League this season, but they may just do ok in the Europa

    RIP Green Cross code man

    David Prowse always ruined his own Christmas, because he felt his presents

    Maradona

    Despite the handball in 86, I never hated him.......... lived the rocknroll lifestyle....... probably the greatest player I ever saw regularly (I was born in 71)
