      Stuck a tenner on it.

      Good luck . It's fairly efficient according to da missus

        You'll be back for King of Kings on BBC2 at 2pm then. Only biblical epic I can see on the main channels, shower of heathens. Used to be wall to wall Cecil B DeMille type films.
        Ben Hur on TCM at lunchtime as well, which sort of counts.

          First Alpe de Howth Head ascent completed. Wasn't as bad as I expected although the north wind up my arse on the way back may have saved me.

            I'm still waiting on the text. Wife called the doc for a referral at about 10am. The receptionist incorrectly told her she didn't need one, just to rock up. Wife politely argued that she didn't think that was the case and the receptionist, unsure then herself asked her to Google it.

            I called back at about 5pm to enquire as to whether the referral was made and they didn't know and couldn't check.

            'the GP was very busy today, maybe she' ll get to it after her shift'

            No idea now whether the referral was made.

            Thankfully I'm not anxious about it but so many people would be.

            I suspect that a huge amount of the negative perception of how bad the HSE is (it isn't) is because of how woeful GPs tend to be, and they in turn blame the HSE for their incompetence.

                Very good point.

                The setup in Citywest was a masterclass in efficiency and service.

                Every single member of staff was super friendly too. The two guys doing the actual swab were great at lightening the mood and making me feel comfortable.

                Won't lie about being a tad nervous, got the impression they knew that and had the skills to assuage it.

                    Would love a regular €2/€5 or €5/€10 game in town and surely with the Fitz gone there's a gap for it.

                          Finding a good GP is a bit like finding a good mechanic. A lot of trial and error, and by the time you find a good one, a lot of avoidable damage has already been done.

                            Thanks guys! That is very kind and encouraging. There are two more tracks to be released from this EP. I'm actually working on the 2nd ep now, which I'm very excited about. I found a really cool bass player, so I'm going to jack up the BPM and really let loose

                              It will be interesting to see what happens post covid, there's definitely an opening for a poker club in the city centre. It would be great to see someone ambitious launch something.

                                I've found that the GPs are typically good but the people running their surgeries are useless.

                                Is there any other profession where it's par for the course that you make an appointment for X o'clock and are then kept sitting there for an hour? With never a hint of an apology.

                                  Yep, meant to come on and say the GP in this case is excellent. Front of house not so much.

                                    Since Covid, I've had two video sessions with GP's. A far better experience.

                                      Strangely enough, the receptionist at my GP is brilliant. I've never experienced such competence from any other service provider anywhere.

                                        Can only tell you it seems to be a pretty solid rumour. Personally would love it to be back in there as much nicer than any competition as a venue (car partking aside but plenty around if you're prepared to pay a tenner while punting 4 figures )

                                                    I had to get bloods done during the week, routine stuff as thankfully hadn't needed to go to a GP in a few years. Appointment booked for 8:45am. Nurse does all the bloods so I turned up on time, checked in at reception and asked to sit down.

                                                    There was never more than 3 people in the reception at any one time but every person that came in got called in by the nurse before me. After 35 minutes, I was getting fed up but didn't want to be a dick as know they are under pressure with restrictions etc so very politely asked if I was due to be seen soon. They had completely forgot that I was there. I was sitting right in front of the reception desk where you couldn't not see me. Apparently, she clicked the button on the computer but it didn't work. Just so meh about it.

                                                    The receptionists in general are like guard dogs that you have to get past to get to a doctor, they completely run the show.

                                                              brianmc; is this just micro-level bio diversity in action? There is a lot of bees out and about in the garden today. In the tree with the blossoms, they are smaller and look more honeybees whereas in the heather directly below, they are much bigger and look like bumble bees. Is this normal or have I happened upon a breakthrough discovery?

                                                                    Thanks everyone else too.

                                                                    Have no idea really where I picked it up. Best guess is one of the kids silently bringing it home from school.

                                                                    I had only one close contact to give the HSE. Needed a lift somewhere on Tue. We both wore masks with windows open. He's already gone to be tested and is isolating.

                                                                    They were most concerned about the 48 hours prev to symptoms developing. They asked if I'd been to any shops in the 7 days previous.


                                                                    Kinda knew going to bed last night tbh. Felt really strange, woozy. Vertigo type feeling. I had read that was a symptom. Was also discounting it as psychosomatic too. Felt nauseous also.

                                                                    ​​​​​​Feel mostly ok now. A little breathless going up the stairs. Had a pack of salt and vinegar Tayto and they tasted really strange. Took me ages to pinpoint what the real familiar taste and smell was.

                                                                    They tasted like my Ventolin asthma inhaler I used as a kid. Found that quite odd.

Particularly not on a sappy Grade1 festival winner. fack that. Dickie went out better than any other jockey in recent times. You either just go out as Dickie did or you name your last day and dont be Hollywooding it up going out on a festival winner.

My little patch of grass needs cutting again, after 2 weeks since the last one. Roses pretty much didn't stop growing at all over winter. Wallflowers I grew from seed this time last year have already flowered.

                                                                                                                    Have no idea really where I picked it up. Best guess is one of the kids silently bringing it home from school.

                                                                                                                    I had only one close contact to give the HSE. Needed a lift somewhere on Tue. We both wore masks with windows open. He's already gone to be tested and is isolating.

                                                                                                                    They were most concerned about the 48 hours prev to symptoms developing. They asked if I'd been to any shops in the 7 days previous.


                                                                                                                    Kinda knew going to bed last night tbh. Felt really strange, woozy. Vertigo type feeling. I had read that was a symptom. Was also discounting it as psychosomatic too. Felt nauseous also.

                                                                                                                    ​​​​​​Feel mostly ok now. A little breathless going up the stairs. Had a pack of salt and vinegar Tayto and they tasted really strange. Took me ages to pinpoint what the real familiar taste and smell was.

                                                                                                                    They tasted like my Ventolin asthma inhaler I used as a kid. Found that quite odd.
