I'm sure I could manage to rig up a hose system where I could rig up a direct feed from kettle via teabag box direct to the car to save them stopping work then they could do the job in 1/2 the time and therfore the fee would reduce again to 7.5p each. And I'll even take down some Aberdeen buttries, a local delicacy (heart attack in the making) only available from Aberdeen to Elgin. Very rare and worth an absolute fortune.

Oh, no, you have to allow them to take a tea break, as this is when the brain storming happens!

I think that if the forum members would invest in a very large tea urn for Team WFA it would pay dividends! I would chip in.

Hmmm...... I see a plot developing here, perhaps a black market in decaff tea........

No. It was just that the first time I arranged to meet Jim he asked for de-caff teabags, and when I then found Twinings did a de-caff Earl Grey he was delighted, as he hadn't had Earl Grey for a long time. I later found a recipe for puff bread (which I passed on), and I wonder how they turned out.

No car news this week. The big news, for me, is by this time tomorrow I will have had the first of the two operations on my back.

Davie,

While you're in there, can you ask them to fit a translation device in you :? I haven't a clue what you're typing half the time, let alone saying :roll: :roll: :roll:

All the best buddy, let's hope it gives you some relief [-o<

I'll bet the spell checker had a bit of fun with that one, unless you managed to get a Glasgow add-on for it!

It basically says that was feckin sore! 3 & 1/2 hr back operation on local anaesthetic. I am now bionic. 16 electrodes implanted into my spine, connected to a temporary controller outside my body. It has 6 different programmes which I have to use for two days each and monitor my pain levels. Then I get a smaller controller implanted into a buttock which runs forever. It needs charged every day for 45 minutes. The operation site is still in agony just now, but the pain I get in the sciatica nerve is very little now. So it is looking hopeful that in the next 2 weeks that the right program will be found. My spine is still (-expletive removed-) but if I am not sore 24/7 then that's a success.

Just so long as the controller runs forever, and doesn't make you do the same! Seriously though, I hope everything goes well, and that the pain levels drop to a much more bearable level.
