Hey Guys I will hopefully be back with you soon .I am not sure if anyone noticed but I have been away for a few months on all sites I am on not (two in total LOL) just here and a metal working machinists site I will explain all soon as I can on top of everything else I have been without the internet since Dec 18th.I have had eight engineers out all saying they don’t have authorization to fix what was wrong they turned up to fix the telephone for the first three weeks even though I told them again and again it was an internet fault. I have been in hospital about three times. and they discovered I am going deaf ,so this Wednesday I should be fitted with both of my new deaf aids. what next as usual LOL Brotherly Love to all you guys and feel good to have broken the ice this is a short one will be in touch more soon. Alistair ps still waiting for my biopsy the surgeons receptionist promises to write or telephone with a date again and again but so far despite about 3 or 4 promises nothing. Your Pal Big Al Alistair

Good to hear from you Alistair, we most definitely didn’t forget about you, in fact your last post from 2015 was revived a couple of times to see if we could make you post an update but you obviously did not have access to the internet to know that.
Hope you’ll be back with us soon and in good health.

We was a wonderin’. WE had the phone people out numerous times several years ago. One finally told us it was a programming issue, but they kept sending repairmen to the site. They finally got the program right after a couple years. It must be a world wide problem ;-) Good luck with you heath issues.

Ah I am once again reminded of the beautiful friendly souls here .My brothers and sisters who constantly make me drift from my very minor problems and feel both brotherly love and compassion. Is it any wonder why we constantly come here quite apart from the fascinating posts, we or at least I always feel calm and happy rejuvenated if you will. I will Write soon Alistair

At this point in life, meaning your battle to maintain and regain health and function, all I can say is, “may the force be with you”, like in the Star Wars movies. You need a little good luck and good doctors.

Here at my vacation home in Washington state. The contractor is coming in this morning to begin demolition of the old kitchen, and a new one shall arise. I have been busy setting things up so that I can use the old cabinets in my shop (that exists around the edge of my garage, at this home)

Take care, Alistair…........
