Like stransongs got to say the NHS is there when you really need them...
My father died 3 years ago next week from the start of him feeling unwell to the time he was sent home
diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer they gave us a Macmillan cancer nurse 24/7 and a domestic
and personal care nurse to help every day..After he died the Macmillan nurse changed his pj's shaved
him and combed his hair ... all the drugs and equipment ,visiting doctors all done with no charge and
lots of kindness... Might not be perfect  but I and my mother will never forget what they did...

Hi Headcase  Someone said the difference between a violin and a fiddle is about $5,000 wink

                    Sum set up fiddles a little different I belive but the real parting of the ways
                    is in the type of music played ... I can't play one so what the hell do I know.
