I went for a check up yesterday and had a finger poked up my bum. Do you think I should change my dentist?

Thanks Mr R just got home from the scan, keeping still for over an hour isn't easy.

It all stems from an infection I got in my foot in the summer which was initially wrongly diagnosed as an insect bite. Got a bit of bone damage but it wasn't treated early enough but nothing major according to X Rays. Would call it more an nuisance and uncomfortable than painful.
Have had blood tests and todays MRI scan is hopefully going to prove the infection is clear, if not it will be a course of strong anti-biotics, surgery hopefully not required.
Will know more when I see the specialist next Wednesday.

Still been able to play TT although not done many tournaments this season, am actually playing in Doncaster League tonight. Mrs SW is learning to play so training her a couple of mornings a week.

Depends on whether she changed her gloves before inspecting your teeth.

She only put the gloves on to inspect my teeth....does that say something?

We bought our house because it’s easy walking distance to Attenborough Nature Reserve ( birth place of Richard & David, the village that is ) it’s a lovely place where walkers, cyclists, dog walkers & birdwatchers all enjoy. Just recently it’s become the target of vandals who have burnt a hide down & this morning pictures have emerged that there must have been a party there last night as an area is full of empty beer bottles. Wish the little shits had the courage to come forward as they would certainly receive a severe slap. Why do this ?

We've got a bottle bank on our street and a month or so ago it was vandalised with glass all over the road itself.
Two weekends ago, ten car windshields were damaged in this part of town.
On the other side of the river a moped gang has been terrorising people.

The question why has many, many answers and can't be put down to one thing.
You can't just say :
- I blame the parents
- I blame the lack of policing
- Liberals ruined society when they stopped us giving kids a clip round the ear

Nor can you simply suggest things would be better if :
- there were more youth clubs
- there were more leisure facilities
- schools were stricter
- estates had a better community spirit

It's all of the above and more.
I've had my windscreen smashed and I wanted to kill the little ****s. Turns out they were a former gypsy family - I know because I followed the kids who did it and they (stupidly) went straight home. I shopped them to the police/council and they were moved on a week or two later - I wasn't the only one to report them. But they're now somebody else's problem and that's not right either.

It's society as a whole : it's broken.
We can never go back to the 1950s/60s/70s whenever you felt it was better.
Every generation says that anyway, but now it's really gone too far when we're talking hundreds and thousands of pounds worth of damage.
A broken window or a game of knock and run is one thing - causing a car to have a blow out is something else.

I don't know the answer but they won't own up and you know if you approach the parents you'll be entering a world of pain with future repercussions too.

I try to be zen about it all but it's not easy sometimes.
When I talk to Jeanna about it, she just says "In my country, we'd kill 'em".
I'm not sure about that, but some form of more severe punishment would help, but who's gonna carry it out ?
There's not enough police to do it and across the water some residents have actually set up a vigilante patrol system.
When I read about that I was filled with dread thinking it could only lead to more trouble, but as I'm pro-civil demonstration (eg the French going on general strike this week) I also don't think it's such a bad idea.
If it means the government and local councils sit up and take note, then so be it ..

I detest anti-social behaviour of any kind whether its mindless vandalism or simply dropping litter in the street.
We all want to live in a decent place.

As Rigger says not enough police but to be honest it's also down to courts not supporting them. We need to get tough especially on repeat offenders.

Other day we were walking behind 3 youths (16/17 ish) going into town drinking from cans. When one finished he just dropped one on the floor despite been a few yards from a bin. Couldn't resist so gave him a bit of a rollicking and despite an attempt to deny it was him I managed to embarrass him in public enough to go pick it up.

Another thing I hate is crap graffiti in the right places artistic offerings such as murals add charactor but someone just scrawling on a wall for the sake no thank you.
