    Lower back has given out on me for the 5th time in a year. Had an MRI scan last week so I’m hoping that’ll provide some answers. I’m only 27 ffs. 

    i damaged my discs at the age of 28. When I was 40 it got worse and I was on my back for three weeks and eventually lost the motor nerve in my right foot. I won't describe the pain I was in, I'm sure that you can empathize

    In 1998, I had spine fusion and have not had serious back pain since. 

    My advice to you is get talking to a neurological surgeon a soon as you can. It doesn't necessarily mean that you need surgery but they will give you the best advice. Mine did

    Worked my arse off trying to get as much done in the kitchen today before kick-off.

     

    A few more tile cuts to be made at the top and bottom, then grouting.

     

    Almost there.

     

    We've got kickboards on for the first time in 13 months!

     

    So happy with it though.

    Talking of wanking over Graeme Jones until this evening I never knew that Heather Graham’s middle name is Joan 

     

    Here’s a pic of Heather Joan Graham for those that aren’t familiar with her work

    In the same vein, Did you know it was Joan D'Arc who said "Lawks a Lordy my bottoms on fire!"?

  4. It looks like I shall be eligible for the vaccine shortly, however, I am allergic to wasp/bee stings and may not be able to have the vaccination. 

    My GP wants me to see an allergist to check me out. Just wondering if anyone else with allergies has been told that they can't have the jab?

    The East - West split in Britain is bigger than the North - South divide.

     

    East - Anglo-Saxon, reserved, individualistic, more capitalistic, historical links to mainland Europe.

    West - Celtic, emotional, more communitarian, lean towards socialism more, historical links to Ireland. 

    You might find this interesting. It explains that in their opinion, the Anglo Saxons melded into the Eastern part of England rather than invaded.

    West were also linked more to the Mediterranean and Atlantic seaports

    American/expert posters may have more detailed info, but as I understand it.....

     

    25th Amendment & Impeachment are 2 totally different processes, so impeachment wouldn't force Pence to invoke 25th

    - 25th Amendment is to declare President unfit for office (by VP and half the cabinet)

    - Impeachment would put Trump on trial by the Senate for misconduct. If found guilty while still in office, he'd be turfed out; if it was after his term had ended, he'd be disqualified from any future office for life

     

    Impeachment will doubtless pass the House of Representatives (Dem majority), but requires a two-thirds majority in the Senate, which is currently 53-47 Republican (and still only 50-50 after the new Senate takes over).

     

    At least a couple of Republican Senators (including ex-VP Cheney's daughter) have said they'll vote to impeach......but it would still presumably require about another 15+ Republican Senators to find him guilty?

    All seems to come down to Republican Party politics.....do a sufficient number want to take the risk of severing the connection with Trump, when he's still so popular among GOP voters?

     

    I'm assuming that the chance of him being found guilty by the Senate is higher than last time, but still unlikely......but I might be wrong about that......any further clarification, Americans/experts?! :dunno:

    That's a good assessment Alf.

    I think McConnell's opinion is the key.
