Another trip in the ambulance.

My tinnitus problem, a legacy from the gunnery years whilst with His and Her Majesties Royal Navy;Jan 42 To Jul 66 has been a constant irritant. so it seems  and it is never going away.. Yesterday an extension to the problem occurred after a  build up of dizziness and a feeling of nausea,  this phenomenon was described  as Vertigo ( like LSD or - Being on another planet). a feeling of being out of control.  Having settled down and being given all the treatment known to allay these symptoms  I returned home late last night. I have this medication to prevent the problem  but I have yet  to take any. However, I do feel much much better than yesterday and shall wait and see how matters progress.The seven hour stay in the Triage Section of the emergency dept  was amusing to follow the antics of some of the other arrivals, one drunken  unkempt unshaven blood splattered garrulous neanderthal approached the bed where I was laying, mumbling incoherently the said goon  was told  by my good self  in terms unmentionable that my  pee bottle was about to be  tipped on his head , walked back to where he had been sitting picked up his bag and left the hospital, the matter did not go un noticed, however, nothing was said about the incident.
Feeling OK at this moment,

Back soon ...Vest.

Will the A B C Aus get it right?

During the most recent Channel Seven program 'Millionaire' , the presenter asked the contestant to answer all of the five final questions. Unfortunately he failed on one question which was, " In which sea is the Island of Corfu in the Mediterranean" . the contestant replied the 'Adriatic sea,' the Quiz master then stated it was incorrect.
There are times when your past returns to haunt you, Namely while serving on The Royal Navy cruiser HMS Mauritius shortly after the incident 'The mining of the two British destroyers in the Corfu channel 22nd Oct 1946.
What happened  was the HMS  Mauritius led the flotilla through the channel and the destroyer HMS Saumarez struck a mine followed shortly after the Destroyer HMS Volage also being struck by a mine. In all both ships were write offs also 44 sailors killed another 42 wounded and all of this occurred in the 'IONIAN SEA'   not the ADRIATIC our bright boys at AUS ABC are saying, on the newscast where in a similar location  a Greek owned Passenger ferry is currently in danger of sinking and is on fire.

" Getting it wrong can be a wealth hazard." Yes , I answered all five Questions correctly (True) godsonner..... Vest.. Back soon..... A Happy New Year, Everyone'....

Check the mining incident on Google. lots of info.
Also The name of the Captain of the HMS Mauritius  was Captain 'Lord  Ashbourne;'. according to my service records. during the Exodus probs in Palestine.Where the ship left  Haifa in a hail of small arms fire on the morning of May 14 1948. another small episode during my Naval career. Fini.

Spell check gone again.

Christmas Constipation.?

Whoever sent this message to my blog 'thank you;' I shall pass it on. However, the Chrissy Pud has worked wonders and there is little need for any drastic measures to be taken by myself to evacuate my internal plumbing.
The following is a message of hope for those who have gorged themselves silly over the festive season. and are suffering from Belly Balloon.

Movicol is a brand-name laxative manufactured by Norgine.UK
Each sachet of this medicine contains macrogol (polyethylene glycol) 3350, an iso-osmotic laxative, along with sodium bicarbonate, sodium chloride and potassium chloride. Electrolytes are included to help mitigate the possibility of electrolyte imbalance and dehydration. The contents of the sachets are mixed with water to make a drink. The range of Movicol includes Movicol Junior, Movicol-Half, Movicol Chocolate and Movicol Plain. Movicol is currently the largest selling laxative in the world in value terms.
Macrogol is an inert substance that passes through the gut without being absorbed into the body. It relieves constipation because it causes the water it is taken with, to be retained in the bowel instead of being absorbed into the body. This increases the water content and volume of the stools in the bowel, making them softer and easier to pass. According to new guidelines previewed in a story at the University of Maryland, isosmotic macrogol can be used to treat constipation in Parkinson's Disease patients (it is an often-overlooked non-motor symptom).

It is catching up time.

More things get done and sorted at this time of the year, mostly over a short period coming up to Christmas. whether you are a believer or not it is hard not to get caught up in the spirit of Christmas. it's temporary goodwill rarely lasting beyond the Christmas season, sadly like the temporary truce at Christmas during the 14 -18 war when Fritz and Tommy played a friendly football game followed by killing each other on Boxing day.
Although we are already geared up for any onslaught of visiting friends and relatives; however,  it seems unlikely to happen being our progeny all have their own small tribes and followers to make merry with and the distance between us can be a trial if one travels at this point in time.
I hear that in many places something has happened to Christmas;that it is changing from a time of merriment and carefree gaiety to a holiday filled with tedium; that many people dread the day and the obligation to give Christmas gifts is a nightmare to weary bored souls; that the children of enlightened parents no longer believe in Santa Claus; And that all in all, the effort to be happy and have pleasure makes many honest hearts grow dark with despair instead of beaming with goodwill and cheerfulness
.Fortunately  We/I have fulfilled our moral obligations. to our loved ones and friends and are now ready  for the outcome of Christmas whatever it may be.

Wishing you all a Merry and Peaceful Christmas.
 Vest .... Daily Gaggle.... back soon.

Busy Busy Busy .

What with more medical problems taking away time allotted to blogging and visiting, I have accumulated domestic chores piling up with little respite at hand; plus there is the December seasonal activities to take care of. So if I am still moving and breathing after this has been sorted I'll get back to blogging. Bye for now Vest.
