  1. Absolutely, one of the main risk factors is unmanaged hypertension. Many hundreds of thousands of Brits in the 35-59 age group fall into that category simply because they are blissfully unaware they have high blood pressure.
  2. Lot of them about at the moment. It's as if they've been waiting for this moment all of their lives.
  3. Is that the local radio version of "Money Matters"?
  4. Reminds me of my 25 years in the NHS.
  5. Phil Lowe and Knocker Norton in the same pack must have been something to behold.
  6. Soon as they'll let me in the care home I'm on it
  7. If I can match this other Ull man I'll get back to you. World's oldest man, born in Hull and lived through Spanish Flu, is 112 today
  8. They definitely played for Hull KR. Played most of that season in their 'A' team but got a game at Widnes that day as Hull KR were resting some of their squad ahead of a game that I would have preferred not to recall.
  9. As Ash Hope has already mentioned in an earlier thread, Hull KR fielded two American grid iron players, Tim Anchors and Pat Kelly, in a first team game at Widnes in 1980.
  10. Ours has looked the skip behind our local for the last three weeks.
  11. Was cycling home just as it was getting dark on Wednesday evening. Had a barn owl and several bats for company.
  12. Put it this way, I don't fancy our chances of getting our bikes any further than King George Dock on our planned cycling tour of Holland in a few weeks. P&O suspend mini cruises from Hull but explain why ships will still sail
  13. I can only echo your comment, hats off to him.
  14. Great to see Arthur chomping on his trademark cigar. His teams could play a bit too.
  15. I thought they'd flogged them all to ScotRail.
  16. We were both desperately trying to avoid getting hammered by Wigan at Wembley.
  17. One visited our garden the other day. Never seen one anywhere in Hull before never mind in our garden. Wonder if the reduction in traffic and air pollution levels is leading some species to be a bit more adventurous.
  18. Hadn't heard one this year until a few days ago. Now they seem to be everywhere.
  19. My son started showing symptoms last weekend. He had a pretty rough couple of days and by Monday he had lost all sense of taste and smell. I spoke to him yesterday and he said he was feeling fine now. I asked him if his sense of taste and smell had returned. The conversation went something like this: "Can you taste anything yet?" "I can taste beer and spicy food." "Anything else?" "I haven't tried anything else."
  20. "Glad to see you go" and "You should never have opened that door" - the first and final songs on that album.
