    Thanks he is still not good and been sent from Ross hospital back to Hereford with and infection so its touch and go. I have been called for my covid jab earlier than I thought. I have it booked this Saturday at Quay House. Guess its because of my asthma but then a good friend of mine who is around 55 years of age, has asthma and diabetes and has not been called

    I am mostly over covid now but reckon I am still not fully there. I was doing couch to 5k before and I was half way through but now I can not run at all. Still got a dad in hospital unable to walk. Even through he has not got covid now, it was covid that put him there and to be honest I don't think he will recover. This is serious. Lots of stupid talk about vaccines not being safe etc and it take 10 years to make a vaccine. That is correct in a way but most of that is getting funding, doing research etc. Reading a magazine last night about this virus is actually not as bad as one could be. More virus's are jumping from animal to man as we take away their natural habitats. We might not be so lucky with the next one. https://www.menshealth.com/uk/health/a35487821/could-we-have-stopped-the-covid-19-pandemic-can-we-prevent-the-next-one/ Worth reading.

    Recovering now from it and I have been pretty ill including a paramedic visit. My mum went down with it first and ended up in hospital - plasma transplant etc. My dad was home and I could not get hold of him on phone. So drove over there and found him collapsed but conscious. Had to get an ambulance to him. He tested positive. So it was during that time I was trying to assist him before paramedics come I picked up a big dose from him. He is still bedbound after refusing to stay hospital. I am now this friday 2 weeks into it and recovering slowly and getting back to work but its been horrid. Fingers crossed over the worse of it.

  4. Merry christmas all. Derren
  5. Yes I have. Its ok. Mine is the Go. Not much memory to hold much and battery lasts half hour. A few good games and I reckon the new ones would be better.
  6. I play this a lot on youtube on the tv after a few drinks. Brilliant.

    amazing voice on all
  10. I remember being in New York and getting something for say 20% and going to the till to be told its $22- you just want to know the actual price to you, not the before sales tax price.
  11. Really sorry to hear this but we know from the above its what Alloneword wanted. We all hope he is at peace now. Thank you Sterling for coming on and letting us all know. As you said it was a request from him to let us know which goes to show the always thinking of others attitude he has always done in the past - always friendly and helpful to all. Derren
  12. The database could not be accessed. Please wait until it becomes available.
  13. Ha i thought you would like. The edit hides the joke now 🙂 Sorry not a chef myself (of chief). Derren

  15. Thanks Gazza and great to see it continuing. Jamerspad will outlive facebook.
  16. Don't know if I am missing something but I can not see how its going to go away unless irradicated by immunization. As far as I see we all stay in for 3 weeks 3 months or whatever. A city in say India does not and it starts again? We need the whole world to stay in but that is not going to happen.
  17. I am guessing they only logged one as returned when they had two. Simple admin mistake which is helping you. Phone customer support. Number is hidden away but a search will find it. I will look also. I returned a mouse 3 times now and each time replaced with no problem. They are usually good.
  18. Its a sad time we knew would come. As Rother said things like Facebook have killed off forums. The dvd forums used have thousands of members but posts are few and far. Nothing lasts forever and facebook will one day be replaced. How long we got Jamer to the end? I agree you can't keep throwing money and time at this. Will the facebook group continue - be good to catch up in there. I learned so much from these forums and saved a lot ? of cash
  19. Yes I am not very up to date on the rules but I know my dad would lose some mobility benefits if he went for the car - he does not have wheelchair etc and I am afraid to proud to use one (yes I bang my head against the wall with him). It all seems rather strange the rules as they don't seem to help everyone in need.

  21. Alloneword good to see you around
  22. Hey All1 Saw this post first on 21st Dec. I wanted to reply but really did not know what to say. It was strange and freaky seeing it that day as it was 20 years to the day my boss took his life. A day I dread coming and a day myself and old employees still remember with dread. We have all suffered for 20 years and psychologically we have all suffered to this day, his family and friends suffered and I bet this time of year is never easy for his family. Destroyed basically by someone who wanted to ease his own suffering but didn't realise the effect on others. As you said you are fed up and none of us can even begin to know what you are going through but taking you own life gives you release but it hurts and destroys the people who love you. I guess you will say you have no one but I bet you have neighbours, old friends, school friends and of course the people here. In fact as we all shoot for life we meet more people who have an effect on us I have no doubt you have made people lives happier and who would like you to still be around. Of course you are at the lowest you have ever been and a shit time of year for all this to happen. You can get up from that last knock out punch and you certainly have friends here who want you still around. Heck you are only 53 and lived through the 1966 world cup - we can't lose you - YOUR IMPORTANT. Take care Derren
  23. Jamerspad has been amazing and what an adventure. Met new friends here, learned so much and managed to save quite a lot on movies and software with recommendations of where to get things cheaper ? Like you Jamer I have also run sites that now are not visited and have closed them. Its such a shame however facebook still has a legacy of Jamerspad and it hopefully can go someway to fill this huge void. Jamer - also thanks for your hard work over the years and all the mods etc
  24. Well work over the last 10 years seems to have taken over my life. Self employed accountant. Hence finding little time for leisure. That must change as health, weight, mood all seem to be going in the wrong direction. Anyway just put this as a big bookmark on my browser so hope to pop in more. Will try and start some old topics up. Derren
