    Osteoarthritus - treatment go for it or not?

    In my personal experience , once I retired and became" of a certain age" my local gp's seemed to just humour me when I visited complaining about my bad back and shoulders, just keep on taking the pills I am told plus stop drinking and smoking(i.e. enjoying the last few pleasures available at my age! ) And all being well you will be seen for your medication review in 12 months time. In other words "" Put up and shut up ""

    How we respond on Thursday will give us a good idea of where we're at. We have just played our poorest for a long time and nearly won away at Catalans outscoring them on the try front. Id hope we cannot play that badly again this season. Atkins could do with being dropped and a couple of others shouldn't feel safe....including Jack Hughes.He seems to think his spot is untouchable

    What about building a few desalination plants ? The Spanish swear by them to cope with the massive demands from tourism.

    Knife crime ?

    Call me an old fogey if you wish. But these problems started in the classroom, lack of strong discipline and lack of authority for several generations leads to a breed of children that decides WHAT IT WANTS IT GETS by whatever means they deem necessary. This along with a proliferation of ultra violent movies and video games that encourage shooting and killing as the norm in order to win games. We have created a perfect storm. All those ""hug a hoodie"" hand wringing do good knowalls give yourselves a pat on the back. Mission accomplished 😌

    We did something very similar a few years ago, but instead of coming home we got a train from Barcelona to the Resort of Calella de Mar ( 9 euros single) and booked into a hotel for 5 nights and then got the train back to Barcelona and flew home. It only cost £180 for the hotel. so all in all a really great Match plus Holiday for a lot less than a week in Blackpool . Oh... and the Hotel was All Inclusive !!!

    I'm happy to corrected if I'm wrong, but I remember the team arriving at Perpignan the morning of match day and leaving just before midnight. The Guardian photographer took some pictures and they were in published.

    What do you think about the investment in Yorkshire Solar Power

    This is a private venture, quite apart from any WBC expense .

    What do you think about the investment in Yorkshire Solar Power

    PLANS for a hydro powered scheme at Howley Weir have been given the green light by Warrington Borough Council. The disused lock channel on the Mersey, adjacent to Parkdale Industrial Estate, would be used to generate hydroelectric power under planning permission granted by the council. It seems a great idea and it will give immediate benefits.It's a wonder something similar hasn't been built at Latchford Locks.As there is a massive amount of hydro power wasted year in year out on this site.

    I think the new rules are an improvement. As long as they are enforced rigorously. Players seem to be looking at ways of twisting them and the refs look clueless.No good shouting shot clock on!! continually; once or twice and that's it, if the team dawdles to long tough; Penalty !! Can't remember one game yet where this has happened.

    Also travelling there and back in one day is NOT a good way to prepare and play in a harsh contact sport like ours.

    Mens sana in corpore sano ... malum malum malum Obs must improve his concentration much more by next term to achieve his ambitions.

    Peter Fox RIP

    Sad news of Peters passing at the age of 85. His older brother Don ,infamous for the "Watersplash Final" passed a few years ago. But Neil,perhaps the most recognisable of the 3 brothers is still a regular at Belle View. He (and Murphy) were my childhood idols.

    Forward to the past ?

    There is no reason in this country why children cannot receive adequate health care and nutrition,everything is there if the parents are the least bit interested (or motivated) The crux of the matter is that the attitude seems to be(in a small number of cases) Netflix/skysports/cars/holidays/latest designer clothes/oversized curved screen tv's/fast food... etc etc and then . "Oh the kids?? The're happy enough;They will be alright; I suppose"

    PC nonsense for PCs -

    I despair... If I was younger I would be genuinely concerned; what agenda in the long term have these clowns got planned for this country it is quite frightening.

    Drones ?

    I guess there must be thousands work there and trawling through all the ones with a grudge or bee in their bonnet is just not worth the bother.

    Got me spot on.

    Should she be "rescued"

    But would she and her kin be welcome in the Land of Windmills and Tulips ... I think it would be a case of NIMBY ... And who could blame them ?
