    The Good Morning Thread 5th Apr 14 at 6:17 AM
    Well, we've got a goodnight thread so let's have a good morning one as well.

    Good morning everybody
    Me and the dog have had our morning constitutional and shortly I shall be venturing forth to the big Tesco to do my fortnightly shop. When I get home I've got 3 hours work related admin and paperwork to do

    The weather here is a bit nippy but at least there's no fog.

    I know what you mean Oakdene ... I sometimes find myself doing a quick headcount and if a 'regular' is missing checking back later to see if they've surfaced ...

    I still say a lot less hassle than real family though

    Good afternoon.

    The snow has gone, and it's 5 degrees!

    Still got to wait until the 15th of March for a bin collection though, because the fortnightly one was missed on the 1st of March because of the snow.

    My sacro-iliac joint gave me a begger of a night last night.

    Seems to have settled a bit now, though.

    Bore da pawb, a little bit tired as I woke a few times in the night.

    Earlyish finish for me today as me & the daughter are off to the big city to see the Stereophonics tonight, was her Christmas present so shes excited.

    Better than it was. It's better when I'm moving about. It doesn't like me sitting or lying down much.

    I go twice a year, regularly, and see both the dentist for a check-up and th hygienist for a clean and polish.

    I'm more terrified of losing my teeth than the dentist!


    To be honest, the check-up and clean doesn't hurt at all.

    On the rare occasion that something needs doing, I have an anaesthetising injection, and after that don't feel a thing!

    If you tell the dentist you're terrified, they will talk you through everything and ease you in gently.
    Marathon Man they are not!



    It was interesting....... as a child, I was absolutely petrified. Then my mother found a dentist who specialised in children, (which was relatively rare all those years ago), and on the first visit he let me play with the chair and with (selected) instruments. On the second visit, I had a play, and then he did the exam. On the third visit I had one filling with a local anaesthetic, and was fine after that.

    Have been fine ever since. Once I know it won't hurt, (local anaesthetic), I usually just want to go to sleep in the chair while he's working on my teeth!

    Speaking from experience. ... problems with the sacro-iliac joint can be a real pain in the arsch if you'll excuse the pun, Mine has been playing up lately - no fun not being able to turn in bed for example.

    Tens machines have their place, particularly in chronic (i.e. long-term) pain that doesn't respond to treatments, for instance.

    This current bout is acute, though, and should respond to the methods I'm using.

    I take the view that prevention is better than cure, though. If I left it ages and then needed loads done, it might not work out cheaper, particularly as I get older.

    Just trying to think what I've had done.
    Over the years, I've just had the odd old filling replaced, and when my crown was pulled out by a toffee, (it was at the end of its life!), I had that replaced with a white one.
    I kept the gold pieces and melted it down with some old gold jewellery to make a ring!

    I'm touching wood, now!
