    Err.... I have some cousins over there- does that count?
    I like Jamesons Whiskey and the occasional Guinness...I even spelt them with capital letters - does that get me out of here?:D

    I'm one eighth Irish with an Irish surname- does that count?

    Just spent an hour and a half making a calendar, primarily for my kid sister who asks me every year. I'm pleased it is done but I'm pooped!

    Learning Ethelred the Ill-Named

    See page 1 of http://www.friends-of-rcp.co.uk/newsletters/Issue 84.pdf
    The publication is a bit rough. I used it as a first training exercise for a new publisher. I used a pdf of an old issue to get started. Hopefully in about two and a half months time I will have edited a new issue from scratch. The diversity of photographs from many photographers using very diverse cameras will remain.

    Thanks for the link - it all looks very impressive but I had to Google to find where Rushcliffe is, and I'm not that far from Nottinghamshire. Perhaps I'm not as well travelled as I thought I was... And is "Wytham" the one in Oxfordshire (with the Uni research wood) where I was shown round by my niece?

    Ah, but when we get the empire back...

    You think I'm kidding? I saw a leaver being interviewed and that was what he was on about. Mind you, the marginally thicker end of the leaver spectrum.

    Still not hot here but I'm thinking biting beasties are about instead.

    What do they say? Keep cool and carry on...

    And it doesn't get any better. Just got back from the dentist. He can't take it out himself, it's too complex, so a referral to the hospital for a surgeon to do the job.
    And my teeth don't line up for a bridge, so leave a gap, a plate, or an implant. That will be £2500 please sir.

    That's miserable news. I struggle these days with my bottom teeth determined to overlap. It's a bummer to get them clean.
    Which option do you prefer? Are others likely to be following suit?

    I snapped a crowned top front tooth off 6 or 7 years ago. Was at a business lunch so I got a round of applause. Luckily the tooth must have died at some past point, the crown was some 20 years old which is good going for porcelein. Dentist just counts "root" when she does her inventory. Can't face the idea of having an implant.

    I'll see the "implantologist" (Yes, really!) when he's next in the dentist's and discuss it with him. TBH the whole business of screwing a titanium whatsit into the bone of my jaw gives me the heebies. Mum had a plate with single tooth for a while but just couldn't get on with it, so I may just have to put up with a gap in my front teeth. Hey ho , 6 yrs old again!
