Thanks ogri48
when you say the apartments .....are they wheelchair friendly too?

I know I'm asking a lot but in short, we need lifts not stairs and towns/cities that are flat (I'm getting on now and can't be pushing her up hill :lol)

toilets is another big issue, even in this country you wouldn't believe the hassle of trying to find an accessible disabled toilet

cheers

looks like the goon has disappeared, if he'd stayed around then he'd have realised this is the best site going FOR EVERYTHING

I've been on here since about 2002 and haven't had a fazer for donkey's years, the site is that good.........but then you all know this, I'm preaching to the converted

anyway.....talking of sinks :lol

Indeed, we must never forget.

a past work colleague went and said it was harrowing, someone else I know went and said it wasn't as bad as he'd thought it would be (not disrespectful but I think he'd heard that much and built himself a wall to bat off what he thought was going to be a really upsetting experience)

just watching old war films can give an idea of the horrors but seeing the camps for real.....I can only assume it would be a sobering experience. It's something me and the Mrs would like to do but she's in a wheelchair. Those who have been, can you say if Krakow and the camps are wheelchair friendly?
TIA

HERMES COURIERS
The cunts have my parcel and I've tracked it each day. should've been delivered on Jan 1stthen every day since.....but no!

finally had a live chat that ended up with me demanding a manager so he comes on and then says the wrong courier has it...WTF?
Its still with them but probably down sarf instead of oop north!!!
I tell him to ring the depot but they can't as they don't have phones.......its 2019 yer twat!!What a fucking wank firm

outcome is they will email me within 24 hours (if they can) to tell me when I will get it (probably in a week if I'm lucky)

probes going to outer space, Chinese taking pics of the dark side of then moon and Hermes cant fucking ring their depots. what a wank firm

watching Corbyn lose his rag with May and her cronies when they laughed at him, when he was talking about the poor. That made me feel good

just so you're aware, Aldi only go upto XL in their size range. I'm usually XL but find their stuff on the smaller size, looked at a jacket once but was not to be :'(

sorry to hear of your predicament mate, only experience I have had, is of a workmate who woke up with it (15 years ago). Think it took about 3 months to settle and get back to normal. Fingers crossed for you ;)

I've just got an Almax chain 2m long and 19mm links and the sleeve has seen better days, been told I can get a new sleeve for about £12. I've also got a short length of fire hose which I'm thinking of using.......its not as flexible so if you're not carrying it on the bike then that maybe an option for you, ask your local station if they have a burst length that's no good anymore......you'll need the old 70mm (64 now) as opposed to the 45mm hose

and that gets my goat but can't be arse posting elsewhere :lol
imagine you approach a cop and get in their face, I bet you'd be arrested for aggressive behaviour

just watched a great show on BBC I recorded last week or two?
NYPD New York's biggest gang......about cop watchers who record cops behaviour after all the black people who have been killed by cops. Oddly enough, the cops don't like it back at them and make life difficult for those with the camera's. Well worth seeking out on I Player

another quality thread from our members and that's why I've stuck around for nearly 20 years. Come on here and ask anything (you'll sometimes have the piss taken but you also get great advice)

well done to everyone who's offered advice in this thread


my two penny worth.......I've never experienced the OP's situation but I've had cause to seek professional help and believe me, talking does help. The male psyche is such that we keep it all bottled in and tell no one, we either explode or get depressed and top ourselves.  You have taken the first step mate by opening up on here, next step is your GP but if you see him/her and say you're anxious/depressed then some give you a number to ring and you then get a telephone assessment before they make the appointment to see you. This is a tick box exercise......literally. The answers you give will ultimately give you a score and they base the appointment on that score. Bear in mind that the appointment may take 3 months to materialise so get the GP's sooner rather than later to get things moving.

There's been good advice given on here upto now, heed it. As has been said......you cannot look after anyone else if you cannot look after yourself. The bike is the least of your problems. You and the kids are THE PRIORITY

best of luck mate

unsure if the no win, no fee guys are good or bad

I'll tell you this much though...........do not be in any hurry to settle. A "simple" broken ankle could and I say could, give you long term problems that you're not even aware of. Try and get some "independent" specialist consultant advice and get him/her to put something in writing to the effect of your injury and its long term prognosis. On top of that, the private physio you're going to need (the NHS one will only last a certain time and its a short time......experience of this with the wife's Stroke) will cost in the region of £70 per hour and it soon adds up if you need it long term. Think long and hard before excepting any deal.
You will also need new kit and that's expensive too, check that the other insurer is willing to pay for that. I'm not one for screwing the system as we all end up paying, but equally when it's not our fault then we have to make sure we're covered from every angle. Good luck mate and I hope you're on the mend soon rather than later

when we walk from Brexit with foc all......and believe me we will, no matter how good the Tories try and dress things up..........sooner or later the people will have enough and I predict riots

I hope I'm wrong, I really do. But if things pan out to the point about we're being told....lack of certain foods/drugs etc then I cannot see people standing for it anymore
