Hi from Canada!

Hey everybody!

It's good to know that I'm not the only one with half a dozen (cheap) flashlights!

... now all I need is advice on the next few.

"half dozen"

Ohhh dev, hang around here for any time at all and you'll soon remeber the day not so long ago, when you only had six lights with quaint fondness.  There are invisible forces at work on this forum that wait, strategically poised for just the right moment; an innocent appearing review, a chance comment and then . . . a link, with power to vacuum the deepest wallet in seconds flat.  Beware my friend, no one can resist the (Solar)force.

How's the back healing up? I did for mine 31 years ago while trying to pick up a Transit van.

 

And for once, alcohol (or any other intoxicant) was not involved. All it took was 19 year old stupidity. Sad

It's back to how it was more or less, which sadly means I'm still more or less in constant pain.  There's some kind of problem with the way my bones mesh together, everything that has a name was eliminated years ago...and then they gave up trying to help.

I'm in the proccess of trying to get a new doctor, my old doctor passed away and his replacment decided I shouldn't take diazepam any more because it's very addictive. I did try to point out that I have taken it on an off for 20years will not even the slightest sign of trouble but he was certain. It's rather a good job I wasn't addicted as going cold turkey isn't exactly recommended.

I've been trying to write this for a while now and I just keep going back and deleteing what I've written as I don't like to moan about it...I don't think I've done a very good job:P
 
Which is weird because I love a good moan about anything else Smile
