General Discussion / Rough skin and pain bka
« on: March 28, 2017, 05:57:35 AM »
Hi lads and ladies.
I haven't posted for a age but need some advice. On the inside of my knee I have a series of bumps with a callus 'peak' which have been causing some pain. They may be hair follicles (?) but no hair is present. I'm not sure if they are ingrown as they would be probably look different.
Any advice to get rid of them?

Hope all is well and thanks

Doing fine Anne. Weathering the storms (literally) and keeping myself busy. No real scandal!

I think I remember Jim. Sad to hear of his passing. I bought one of those shower covers! (I tend to use it for work in bogs though. Its very handy.)

You love teasing me Ann? Good!

Thats sounds incredibly frustrating. I have had luggage (bags) lost in the past and as I remember they always left them off to me as it was their fault it became lost.
In your case I would of course keep calling but maybe also send emails as you will have a record of correspondence. One thing I always figured might work is to contact a local politician as well. Even contact a local newspaper and or television station. The fact they are not returning a wheelchair of all things is scandalous. If after a few emails go without a proper resolution, write again and put the politicians, newspapers, tvs email in the :Cc and :Bcc lines in the emails addresses. That way the others will be in the loop and Air France will see this and it may just light a fire under them. No one wants that sort of publicity.
I did this when I had a problem with a broken mobile phone. Not a serious problem in comparison but I had been getting the run around from their customer service and when I added the companies presidents email address in the mix it suddenly got resolved.

I haven't been watching much telly either. With living so remote I have to have Sky (cable) so I supposedly have somewhere like 100 channels. That said, storms make it hard to keep channels tuned and even when they are, the shows are brutal! haha

As for reading, I'm mad into it. I would be more 'old school' as I love the feel and smell of a book. Going to bookshops would my version of going to church. I loved Clive Cussler (adventure) but they seem a bit formulaic and at present I am reading Bernard Cornwell (historical novels covering actual events in early britain). I'm reading Cornwell's book so fast you'd think I was eating them.

When in a gritty crime mood, there's no man like Ed Bruen. A Irishman from Galway who writes the 'Jack Taylor' crime novels that take place in Galway where I used to live. Its great to read a story where I know the locations like the back of my hand. The Jack Taylor series have been made into several tv programmes. He writes other books as well besides Jack taylor, some have even been made into films.

Hi Ann. You know I haven't ever watched that programme or even heard of Amy Purdy. I looked her up though and I she is very impressive. I may have a little crush! ;D

I assume people drifted away slowly. The posts dropped and so people checked in less often. I remember the days of chatting with Bruce and George (!).
I hated to see it get quiet. Coming here is like Christmas with the family. Sure, there may be arguments but there is a mutual respect and caring too.

I wish, but wouldn't I need some sort of certification / paperwork? I'm all for saving a few quid though. Work is brutal slow (stopped actually) at the moment and saving a money is definitely a good thing!

Sunny Ireland? Don't believe the postcards! haha :D (That said it is a lovely day today)

I had to look up 'crocus '. When I first read it I thought it was some sort of bigfoot type creature but its a flower! We have a good few flowers blooming now, namely daffodils. Lovely to see.

Is that the Joe A. we all know and miss? Good to see you back. I bought a pair of yak-track type ice shoe attachments a few years back after a big freeze. Since I bought them the winters have been mild (in temperature anyhow)

Hope all is well with everyone.

I was sent this via I'd go for it but I am a below knee and the need a above knee. Suffice to say, the person applying should live in Ireland. Good luck!

I went to order Alpha Max liners (non-pin) back in September and they said they didn't make them anymore but that they did have a replacement. Same basic liner but a new model but that the alpha max was discontinued. I'd hope that they have a replacement for you that is similar?

Stopped making them? Really? :(

How did you find out?

Things here in Ireland are wintery enough. We've had some brutal storms (Storm Christine) and combined with a very high tide, the coasts have taken a beating. Myself, I haven't had too much damage. At least nothing with the house, but I have lost four trees. Unfortunate but having timber to burn is handy as well.

The picture is from Lahinch, C. Clare. A few hours south of me and the photo was taken last week. The worse is over now though. The wind and rain now is of the typical variety.

Anyone have any news, any scandal?
