Thank you for August suggestions and special thanks to KATE for the link to an array of pronunciations. Now I wonder if the family use the English version or, with a French-inspired mother’s name, perhaps the French version. Certainly I shall never be close enough to say "Helloooo my Lovely" !!!
Nasty sounds (as if dentist drill) from Next-Door as they are having their concrete drive “roughened” in preparation for terrazzo. It is the latest fashion.
Rant alert. Sudden new regulation that no one allowed in GP clinic unless jabbed. We have no proof as we have no printer and OH cannot use new phone to download “app”. (Another s-i-l tutorial required.) I did some assertive talking and we were eventually allowed in. I asked clinic to printout my vax report, at first they said didn’t have it even though that’s where I had both jabs, but with more insistence they found my record. Somehow they accepted OH for his appt although his jab was at our local chemist and we had no proof. On way home, I did some more assertive speaking and convinced chemist to print a (very scruffy) copy of his first jab. Both “proofs” are now in plastic sleeves by front door ready for future GP & dentist visits. I don’t suppose OH will need proof to get his 2nd jab next week. Stop the world I want to get off.
If you are over 50 and don’t have any pain, you’re dead.
If medicine has made so much progress in the past 20 years, how come you felt better 20 years ago?
People who exercise live longer. But what’s the point when those extra years are at the gym?
Awh! AQ, what shenanygans you,had to go through,but, as to be expected,your no nonsense approach,certainly worked. Here in UK,Hubby and I,,were given ,credit card sized cards ,with name of vaccine and date, and records automatically sent to GP, from Chemist or Clinics,etc,so all NHS, can view info, at push of a button. Also I signed us into,the system,so I can see all our records,this I find very helpful, as am able to read,any conversations and notes,as well as order medication etc. Hope the neighbours work will not be ongoing long ,that drilling noise, really penetrates and travels .Grr!!!!! Love the quotes, Thank you again.

Hmmmmm ........ does discomfort count? I'm dead if it doesn't.
Our herring gulls are red listed birds. Think about that the next time you hear some flaming idiot calling for a cull of them.
Good Morning. Dry here & I'm off to the hairdressers. AQ - Sorry to hear your tale. You would think that common sense in these matters would prevail. They had your records at the clinic, which should make it much easier, if only they used their brains! We are already finding that life is difficult for those without a smartphone, which surely can't be that unusual amongst us over 60s. I've bought my OH a new phone for Christmas but am now wondering if it will bring even more problems, as he is not "techy" and proposes to run two phones for a while as he loves the small one he already has.
Saw this yesterday....
