Some air time in the high jump
You kind of forget how high those guys are jumping. My young ones said it didn't look that high until zi got a tape measure out and showed them that the height was pretty much ceiling height in the room!

Your Architect is talkin through his hole if he's telling you building control require it. It's not a requirement.

He said it was that or solar panels. Contractors are offering cheaper alternatives, some sort of positive input system?
However architect still adamant that hear recovery ventilation is necessary. He's also pushing for a storm soakaway which I've been warned off by others as it will flood.
The issue with the PIV we have is that it is fitted at a single point and it just blows air through the house to keep the air moving. The brother in law has the MHRV system and it's a far superior job so if you can dig out thr money I'd go for it. As for the comment re. steam in the bathroom, these aren't industrial air-handling units so they're not going generate many air changes per hour - it is a system that tips away in the background keeping your air clean and moving but without you feeling it circulating.

Aidan Walsh out due to injured ankle. Shame as he is a classy boxer. Unfortunate luck as I believe he injured it celebrating his last win.
I think he injured it jumping out of the ring.
Looked like he did it jumping up and down in the ring when he was anounced as winner.
Aye just read that. You'd feel like some tube.

South Africa got a big break there with the Am try. I don't think he grounded it with his hand, he grounded it with his forearm.
Didn't think it would be given. Maybe a bit of pressure applied to the officials during the week has its merits.

Nice to wake up to another medal overnight. Aidan Walsh is into the semifinals of the welterweight boxing and secures a bronze. He fights Britains Pat McCormack next.

Brilliant, I hear this McCormack lad is the real deal
With a name like that can we claim part of the medal?

Why, not like they are all his players? He inherited a poor team,  which will take a while for any managers to rebuild
Then others like Edouard who doesn't want to be there.
Easier for the board to bury the manager than admit culpability of years of under-investment.

Just starting my second self isolation period. Any good recommendations?? Is the Clarkson farm one any use?
Absolutely. Well worth watching. There is some contrived nonsense that you'd see in Top Gear but it has done well because it shows a real insight into a lot of the issues farmers face. Would recommend it to anyone.

A fella on Twitter under a BBC report said it was would be filled every week as it won't just be county matches but will also be used for junior championship finals etc  ;D

Great bronze medal there by the women's 4 to oust GB for the bronze. Congrats.
Moving the Brits into 4th upgrades it in my books.

Iím saying that doctors arenít going to go against what the government/WHO says, as it could mean the end of their medical career. There were doctors who have been struck off for linking MMR jabs to autism.
They were struck off because there are NO links between MMR and Autism you idiot! Meaning that discouraginjg parents from getting their kids MMR vaccinated put the kids at unnecessary risk.

Next you'll be telling us that Harold Shipman was struck off unfairly too, for pursing a non-standard treatment regime with his patients.

Did I say there were?

You donít even have the courage of your convictions. Throw a vague line out, then when itís picked up on, backtrack like f**k. You canít make a coherent argument to support your position.

I think yourself (and others) need to read what is actually in a post,  before resorting to insults and name calling.

Nope, your post implied Doctors being struck of for linking MMR with autism shouldnít have been. Is that the case? If not then not sure why youíd bring it into the discussion. Happy for you to clarify.

No, I didnít imply that. You implied I said that. I brought it up as an example, whereby if medical people might have their own thoughts/concerns on certain vaccines/medication (or even alternative therapy not approved by the NHS), then they dare not say it publicly or to their patients. Going against the grain could mean being struck off.

I mean, we all know about charms. Would your doctor  advice you chuck your ointment in the bin and go see the local man with an apparent charm for psoriasis or whatever? Iíd seriously doubt it. Many of us have used them though even if theyíre not exactly approved by medical experts. Now, Iíd doubt a doctor would be sacked for advocating charms, but still, itís not exactly promoted by experts.
If you went to a doctor and there was a scientifically proven treatment for your condition, and they ignored that and instead prescribed you go and rub the bark of a 800 year old oak tree then yes they should be struck off. Same with a doctor not supporting the vaccine program. Iím still really lost on what your point is? Are you trying to argue that thereís doctors out there who might not support the vaccine and the proof of this, is that there is no proof as they donít want to be struck off?

I was merely answering your question. And who knows, maybe there are. Clots have been linked to the vaccine, so a patient at risk of clots may be at risk after taking the vaccine. Some doctors might have concerns for such patients in that situation.
It is well documented that the risk of clots is MUCH higher related Covid than the vaccine. Doctors, like you and I when crossing the street, are performing a risk assessment and if they truly believed the vaccine was likely to cause more harm than good then they wouldn't/shouldn't recommend it. Apart from a few notable anti-vaxxers in the medical community, the VAST majority of healthcare professionals GLOBALLY, believe the vaccine is the path out of this mess. They can't all be in fear of being struck off or in the pocket of Big Pharma/The Bilderberg Group/New World Order. Or can they...<Twilight Zone music>

Great swim
Good going and I believe the 1500m is his preferred distance so will see what his next race brings.
