Death insurance
Posted: 7/29/2007 2:18:48 PM
JennyM coulden't agree with you more. I work in a hospital fulltime and have DNR on my notes (do not resuscitate). I'm don't agree with anyone playing god and stand by that decision even with my son (he was resuscitated 3 times shortly after he was born and I then signed a DNR because I felt after 3 arrests in a short time span, that was enough for his body). Luckily for me and him he survived and is now a healthy 8 year old.

With regard to this type of Death Insurance, geeeeee I don't know, I have visions of someone getting the use of their legs back after a time and having a hit man on their shoulder.......................now that might be a good film !!!

Geneva all the way for me......................

Rings!!
Posted: 7/29/2007 2:00:49 PM
I kept my engagement ring, wedding ring and eternity ring and was never asked for them back by my ex. I don't have a daughter with my ex, otherwise I might have kept them for her for her future. Instead, I sold them and went on a 5* holiday to the caribbean for 3 weeks!!!

Sub Standard Professionals ?
Posted: 7/10/2007 11:15:45 AM
I can categorically say that people are not receiving sub-standard professionals in this country.

We are however, getting stars for our services, and this does mean NO patient continuity anyone (ie the consultant you see in clinic may possibly not be the one who does the operation - you are offered another surgeon, one who specialises in the same area of the body - this also means that you WILL NOT be able to go back to your original consultant once someone else has taken over your care!!! - they do not explain this though because under the Government Guidelines they do NOT have to). What it means is that you will have your operation, consultation with the set times, but by who - anyone's guess.

I run and have been involved in South Africans Medics and I can absolutely say that their surgery and experience from South Africa is the same as the care you would receive from one of the Serving Officers I work for. I work at one of the last Military Hospital, which is beyond belief!!!!

Posted: 7/10/2007 10:32:53 AM
Well I was with my ex for 3 years, then moved in, after another 6 years he asked me to marry him (8 in total fantastic I hear you say), but married just under 2 years.

Now I think, even though I am happy with my own company if I did meet that person and it felt right (a lot to take into account though when you are a responsible parent) then why not.................................years do mean nothing, but that's just my opinion x

You could be single for the next 10 years - would that bother you?
Posted: 7/10/2007 10:28:13 AM
Geeee what is it that makes people attack Posh4 - how rude seriously.

I have been single for 8 years, fantastic life, earned my way through society and have had fun on the way. I DON'T want a full relationship with someone attached to my couch.

Prune I heard an earlier thread say - HOW DARE YOU!!!! More like taking control of my life and getting on with it in the way I feel comfortable. What a cheek, or should I just string someone along - D'OH.

Get a life - I have mine and its fantastic.

Here, here, IsItAnyWonder..................... totally agree with your thread as well.

Well parents have placed their child, in what they consider to be a safe environment, then you can use the word hindsight - not like the Madelaine case!

I feel for these parents, through no fault of their own (because everyone does have a right to work or live abroad) their child has been taken.

having a domestic in your home!
Posted: 7/5/2007 10:38:50 PM
Know exactly what you mean Boybounty, but am lucky now to have an old converted, high ceiling flat so it's not too bad.

However, I do not like buying new furniture, badly made and I think won't last the years. I adore battered well made wooden furniture, old lights, old beds (always buy a new mattress though).

Give me character - the more character they have the better for me. MFI - Made for Idiots - blah and for most of the others. Even Marks and Spencers furniture is tatty and made badly.

Then again my brothers a carpenter so have been brought up to spot a piece of furniture with craftsmanship (then again I expect most can).

The ipod
Posted: 7/5/2007 10:31:29 PM
Oh I think my Ipod is fantastic. I bought it just for my home (not to be taken anywhere) because it is compact and sits on its speaker base. Took me an age to get the right one and the speakers, but it's fab - no more clutter of CD's, buying CD's when you only like 4 of the songs, all downloaded and then put on the Ipod and played on shuffle.

Can't beat it - ding dong x

Who should exchange the wrong present?
Posted: 7/3/2007 10:40:27 PM
Totally agree Richard with your comment about smiling and saying thank you. My jaw sometimes aches on Christmas Day ha ha.

However, when I buy a gift for a friend/family member it's never the cost involved. I really take time to try and get the right gift for that person whether it's 5 pounds or 20 pounds. Always think its the thought that counts.

If a gift did have to go back I think the best way around it would be to go out with that person and exchange etc.

Couldn't agree with you more Queenie with regard to some thinking it's Rank, but then one person on here is being way overboard on this thread to the point of being quite aggresive, ie also Rank!! We all have opinions and these threads are for that, but surely not being outrightly rude - anyway moving on.

I smoke, I like it and if I was to contact someone on here and it showed that I couldn't because I smoked, then I'd move on. It's me and it's what I do and no I wouldn't lie and change my profile.

Making money on the side. Any tips?
Posted: 6/26/2007 10:43:34 PM
There are some great ideas on here and with an earlier thread I potter with Ebay buying from boot sales and reselling. The inland revenue can't get you because Ebay take the correct percentage for them. I might buy good clothes for a pound and sell them for a fiver. Not a great wadge into the bank every week, but its still 400% profit and the people that buy are pleased with getting a bargain. But PayPal do take a chunk.

I usually turn this money back around into Ebay and buy things for my son and I. Bit of a hobbie I suppose, but I could bank it every week.

The dog walking sounds fantastic and one whereby you get to look after a pet for set hours a week, get paid for it, but don't have all the upkeep of looking after a new addition to the family.

Is there an acceptable grieving period after loosing a partner.
Posted: 6/26/2007 11:35:29 AM
I can honestly say that 20 years ago I lost the "boy growing into a man" boyfriend through an accident and his untimely death and have been affected by it ever since.

I got married, selfishly, and have had one proper relationship since my marraige. Am lucky that this last relationship was with a man who after 7 years I can say totally understands me. He doesn't crowd me or want total emotional commitment and, I'm ashamed to say, I like this. Above all we are good friends which counts the most to me.

Hey Kissey, I'm not bitter, just down right sad.

Totally understand where Foxy is coming from with regard to finding going to the corner shop a total trauma (or thats how I felt).

With regard to moving on in life, I certainly have with my son totally the number one priority. With regard to myself, no sense no feeling I'm afraid. It's all gone x

Single - How Long Have you been?
Posted: 6/17/2007 9:59:44 PM
Have been single for 8 years. Do wonder if, without realising it, I give off an air of independence which puts guys off. Had some "encounters', but none that I would want permanently on my couch.

Yeap just answered my own question with that last statement, too set in my ways LMAO!

Firstly, magical and out of the blue is from books and I gave up on that at 14 ha ha.

I have been on my own for 8 years. I enjoy it mostly, but do wonder whether we get too independant or set in our ways and this does show, even if mostly we can't see it ourselves!

I think it's fab that you still "live in hope" as you quoted, but personally, I am just pottering along.

Have you lied to get cheaper Insurance
Posted: 6/16/2007 9:47:35 AM
Totally agree Mikey. I haven't lied on any insurance. At the end of the day if the company can get away with not paying then they will. Working in a hospital I have seen a few companies that don't pay out because people weren't honest enough to say they smoked etc.

It will bite you in the bum in the end I think.........................

meeting the ex
Posted: 6/11/2007 10:09:00 PM
I was the Ex so some of these stories are quite an eye opener.

Firstly, I didn't ask to meet her, but my son at 8 years old asked me to met her (ex and her had been together for 8 years - 3 of those married at which my son was best man - and yes you've guessed it we were married when he met here lol) Anyway I just spoke to my Ex Husband when my son was about a year old to make 100% sure that he knew this "Lady" and that he wouldn't be putting our son in danger, which to be honest I knew my ex husband never would.

As for what to wear, one has to ask why are you so concerned. I wore jogging bottoms and a Tshirt and boiled the kettle LMAO!!

Life After Death????
Posted: 6/5/2007 9:29:22 PM
One of the Consultants I worked with 10 years ago has never forgetten this:

He was bleeped, red bleep which meant a crash, and raced down the corrider and up the staircase. He passed a chap on the staircase in his PJ's and it wasn't until he got to the top that he realised he had operated on that chap yesterday and put a new knee in him (therefore, he shouldn't be descending the stairs normally). He proceeded to the ward where the curtains were pulled round a bed and when he entered to join the rest of the team, the patient who had crashed was the chap he had just passed on the stairs. The patient sadly did not recover, but the consultant who I still see now has never forgotten that.

On a different note, the hospital is 250 years old that I work in and by the Day Surgery Unit many staff have met a chap looking at a map of the hospital. He always asks for the morgue.

There are many stories at my workplace and believe me the priest has a fulltime job.

I do and don't believe, but I would never shut myself off to the possibility.

I do believe in what goes around comes around. I also think that what you give in this life or for some people what they take will come back and bite them!!

Pete I will be going. I went last year for the first time and had an absolute ball. Took me a week to get over it.

This year they have Snow Patrol,Amy Winehouse - But best of the best for me is on Sunday Night they have the Rolling Stones Headlining - Kerching.

It's a fab festival, one that is now starting to come back up to the top and some say is now the one to go to in England.

The Barcardi Tent is fantastic and so is the Nokia. Loads to see and do around the areana as well.

I just hope the weather holds!!!

M27 Suicide
Posted: 6/4/2007 10:13:56 PM
OMG Trish I saw Junction 2 to 3 closed on Saturday Morning on my way to Shootash.

How very very tragic.

I think at any age for a woman/man this would have been emotionally traumatic and then, of course, you have the physical abuse as well that the person has endured.

It is disgusting that they never investigated it immediately. I know the motorway was closed on Saturday morning, so from what you have said the events that had/did/might occur to her would have still of been present on her body. Why did no-one follow this through at the Police Station or refer her to the Branch that deals with it.

All because someone thought her statement was "strange" that young girl has now lost her life!

What is it with drink drivers
Posted: 6/4/2007 9:51:54 PM
Ladyjaxx007 you have asked a very good question. I must admit I thought no-one would take any notice of my thread where I stated that you are a drunk driver in the morning. Everyone seemed to have the old fashioned "Car parks are full, Drunk Drivers come out and get in their cars" which is not true at all.

I work on the theory that one unit takes one hour to go through the system. Taking into account that when the police brought out how many units to alchol ie a pint of beer, they were talking about the 1970's. Beer percentage has now increased as has Wetherspoons whereby when you order a single voddie you got 35 ml (average being 25 ml) and they don't have to advertise this. You own a driving licence and therefore should be fully aware of what you are purchasing.

I always work on on the one unit for one hour theory, even if I have been out for a meal or at a barbie.

Drunk Drivers are people who get in their cars and go to work in the morning, for a paper in the morning, even at lunchtime - You do not have to leave a pub and get in a car to be one!!!!!!

Posted: 6/4/2007 10:38:52 AM
That's terrible Willow and I hope she is ok.

Most people have a vision of drink drivers stubbling out of the pub etc and driving home, but through working at a hospital you would be amazed at how many people get taxi's home and then drive to work the next day and are over the limit. They are astounded when the Police breathalise them and the red light flashes.

One unit of alcohol takes one hour to leave your system. Therefore, if you were at a neighbours barbie (seeing as the weather has changed now for the better) and drank from 3'ish to around 11'ish and had a few, how many would then get in their car on the sunday morning for a paper and not realise they are still over the limit.

Just thought the above would or could have a few people thinking.
