Craig in the Worcester Royal Infirmary97 viewsWith my bad Achilles' tendons, I managed to slip-and-fall in our own conservatory at midnight. I managed to limp to the couch, but at 3 AM I couldn't get up. Two ambulances later (they needed four people to lift me I was at the hospital. They did X-rays and CAT scans, and concluded that I had "soft tissue damage." Here I am, drinking a Diet Coke from one of those little cup things. May 5 2006

Replacement "Red Wax" Pears from Solstice in London61 viewsThese are the replacement pears sent to us by Solstice --- they don't look much better than the original "Red Wax" pears. They were virtually inedible --- fell apart in a matter of a day. After a delay, Solstice refunded the purchase price.

An Expensive "Red Wax" Pear from Solstice55 viewsThis is actually a replacment for earlier damaged pears. This one doesn't look much better. This is just how it arrived, by courier, at our home. Right out of the bubble wrap.

Solstice Packaging72 viewsThis is how Solstice in London packaged our produce. The cardboard used in the box is, in my opinion, too thin for a courier company to handle. And the open handle on the side of the box means the food shipment is essentially open to the elements while in transit.

Marjorie's New Polo Shirt6917 viewsWe had a young Polish lady --- Agnes --- help us on the farm. She left one of Marjorie's Polo shirts to soak overnight --- but apparently soaked it in acid. She came to us from a recruitment agency, Claire Meade Ltd. They described her as "house proud." We didn't pay their fee.

BBC Radio Forum on the Worcestershire NHS76 viewsUniversity of Worcester, Jun 22 2006. Marjorie and I spent a depressing 2 1/2 hours listening to everything that's wrong with the NHS. The politician in London said, "This is a great time to be a patient in the NHS." What world does he live in?
