When I came to the end of the first sentence, I genuinely thought that you'd been successful in making an appointment to see your doctor!

Well regarding our doctor - he recently retired (He's about 70) and has been my GP since I was about 14/15 so nearly 40 years. - and was always a pain to get and see and when you did get an appointment was a 2 hour wait on a good day.  Now he has retired and is only doing 2 days a week, he has merged with another practice and now there are more doctors and when the wife went recently it was next day and was on time  :tup:

I had a very good doctor like your 40 years ago (when I didn't really need one). Fast forward to today, he has recently retired and the practice now has over 20 doctors. There's usually a wait of well over a week for an appointment which is restricted to ten minutes, and is usually with a doctor you've never met before. If you're lucky he or she has read your notes, in which case he/she will simply back up what the previous doctor said. It appears to very difficult to get a proper diagnosis and treatment for an ongoing and worsening condition.

Had a good day in Saturday at Silverstone - put a couple of shots in my gallery.

Noisest cars on the day were the Porsches - the F1 cars were not too bad.

Speaking of photoshoots - did a 'studio primer' at Spitfire studio and really enjoyed it.

Today and this time last week - both my kids have done well in their exams - one A levels and has got into Uni and the other one GCSE's and has got into 6th Form.  Dead chuffed :)

According to yesterday's Telegraph, children who get high marks in exams will be cut in half.   That sounds a little harsh to me!

Oh dear. I missed the Telegraph yesterday, but I had noticed over the past year or so, that even they seemed to have got rid of proper editors.

It is harsh Simon  :uglystupid2:

One of my daughters friends got 9's in Maths, English Lit, and English Language - apparently one of 2000 kids in the country  :tup:

Well done to your offspring Mark - two years before our daughter does her baccalaureate. That's when we'll be a tad nervous.

I have recently received my father's old camera's. 2x  Nikkormat's  and have been shooting with them. Loved the results!
But I will not go back to darkroom in a hurry.
