It's no secret what our family has been through during the last months - stage four and aggressive?
Sometimes there is nothing to be done, these tumours are rapid, so sorry for the boy and his family.

That reads to me as if the parents didn't want anymore treatment.
'Aggressive Tumour' 
 'latest operation'
 'parents not wanting to accept their child's fate'

Not a good situation for any family to be in.
I won't judge just feel so sorry for the situation.

I started watching it and enjoyed the first episode but found it 'slow' after that, didn't bother last week.
However I will put it on this week to have a deco at your findings  ;)

@ slacker that could go for Christians as well couldn't it?

I don't know that much about the Jehovah faith TBH and can't understand why they would let their son have the OP and then take him away - unless they have been told no more can be done?
Watched the news earlier and not much was said about his prognosis.
If he's in a wheelchair and can't speak or eat he's in a pretty bad way poor lamb.
All will be revealed eventually. :(

I don't bother with online shopping ( maybe on a couple of occasions but not food ) I like to see what I am buying for real not on a computer screen.

We are becoming a lonely and isolated world unfortunately.
One of my pleasures was to go off shopping for the day to Nottingham, Sheffield, Derby etc with a friend or my daughter, have a long lunch and a good old chin wag.

Shopping online or in a large supermarket just isn't the same is it.

I have to agree you are probably right though Engine Driver - but I am hoping you are wrong and as the saying goes

Politics / Conservative MP defects to Ukip
« on: August 28, 2014, 11:44:43 AM »
Douglas Carswell has defected to Ukip.
I've been watching the interview on TV but the coverage of questions to the MP were not really audible.
What Carswell was saying however was that promises made to 'change politics' at the election have not been kept and that Cameron is only interested in giving people a little bit of what they expect to get the votes in the next election.
Carswell said he believed David Cameron and senior Conservatives were not "serious about real change

I'm wondering if this is the start of more MP's defecting from the other three parties.

Reckon I will have to read up more on UKIP and what they stand for before the next election

A hand grenade has been thrown into David Cameron's general election campaign after the Eurosceptic Tory MP Douglas Carswell defected to UKIP, triggering an immediate byelection.

Carswell, a leading member of the generation of Tory Eurosceptics, said he had endured sleepless nights in the ruup to his decision.

He has decided to resign immediately as MP for Clacton, in Essex, guaranteeing a difficult byelection for the Tories. As the sitting MP Carswell will have an immediate advantage.

Sitting alongside the Ukip leader Nigel Farage, Carswell said: "It's nice to be a member of a party where I agree with the leader." Farage joked: "It is early days."

Carswell said he believed David Cameron and senior Conservatives were not "serious about real change".

He had a majority of 12,068 at the last general election.

Carswell said: "Things don't have to be this way. I will be asking voters in Essex to help me change them."

He entered parliament in 2005, and has frequently rebelled over European issues.

Oh dear haven't read the article Fly and only watched a brief clip of it on TV.
It goes to show though that the man in question really should not have had a gun as he obviously was not aware of the dangers of his actions.
 He paid dearly for it.

Grandson has a disk Fly he tells me he downloaded different ones after he bought a new computer without a disc - it seems they don't always give them now which is why I couldn't find one for daughters ( unless it's at her place)
Fingers crossed for tomorrow

My  brother has just returned from Ireland in  the England V Ireland shoot with his son who has been Clay Pigeon shooting for quite a few years ( he's now 17yrs ). I can't say what he began with but do know that a couple of years ago my brother had to buy him a larger gun mainly because the other one was getting too small and his scores were dropping.
England won by the way  :)

As for this child being given a gun to have a go - how stupid can anyone get.
This person should be prosecuted if he hasn't already been.
