Good viewing!

I'm not given over to watching war/killing/ shoot em up types of tv progs but this Netflix production is imo an excellent 8 episode series ... newly released, if you haven't seen it then have a look, it's war/politics and very good.

You need to switch on subtitles.

Broadchurch third and final series airs Feb 2017

I had a very nasty chest infection over a month ago, no temperature, it's still hanging on yet. It's at it's worst waking up in a morning, I sound like a long term smoker coughing his lungs up and I don't smoke.

The old faithful Vicks vapor rub works great for me and a Theraflu at night, otherwise a hot toddy, cheap blended whisky, about an inch in the bottom of a cup, fill with boiling water, stir in 4 to 6 spoonfuls of sugar, drink as hot as possible.
I used to take a couple of paracetamol with it too but you can't get them here, out like a light and feeling better following morning. Just repeat each night until you feel better.

Members of WW may want to try the hot toddy ever night, it's a guarantee good nights sleep. Be careful! It may become addictive if you are lucky. Lol

Just got back from emergency..2:30 am I have Pneumonia.. I'm going to bed now.. talk later....

Ok, it's morning now.. I have had bronchitis for a couple weeks.. But when I went for my 6 month checkup at the Radiologist, my BP was 168 /96... then later on yesterday my temp was 101-9, and I had a banging banging headache.. So I got scared , started think strokes etc.. So I went to Emergency.When I got there, my BP was 187 over 98, . Any way, after the X-ray, they determined I had Pneumonia.. 2 breathing treatments and loads of pills later ( and a bill in excess of $2000 )I came home... Onward and Upward eh

Britboy, have you ever seen the series ' Life on Mars '? we got the DVDs a few years ago, just watched it all again.. It's a Detective series with a twist, set in 1973 Manchester, a bit brutal in parts, but I thoroughly enjoyed it..
