Blimey Lyn, tee-total sounds good for you. My sides are still aching with laughter, John is one lucky man. Did France recover ? 
Keep the humour coming, it’s great. 
David’s scans came back clear, awaiting a PSMA pet scan now. Fingers crossed.

Very very funny. I assume the 'sahg' is a typo. I looked it up but couldn't find anything that looked at all interesting. One glass you say?

It is misspelt deliberately to prevent the moderators automatically blocking the post Chevy. You may notice other members claiming sometimes that something is tish or tihs, and occasionally something particularly frustrating is declared to be a load of bullocks

Hi Lyn, I am fine no apart from being left with an irritating cough, Tony is still the same no change at the moment but his younger brother dre yesterday and he has a tumour and will have to go for more tests, his wife (my sister) said he has been having trouble with his waterworks for some time but has only just decided to go to the Drs. I have every thing crossed for him but will have to wait and see.

Just caught up with this Lyn. All very funny apart from the lung thing ! You made me laugh out loud. I started vaping last year after 22 years off the fags. Call it a stress thing. I actually love it when I can get it off Elโ€™s hands haha. Maybe try this honestly. Just like the real thing imo without the horrible smell. Take care pet x

Glad to hear you are on the mend Barbara - fingers crossed for b-i-l. So did two sisters marry two brothers?

CJ, I tried vaping about 4 years ago. It triggered adult-onset asthma - apparently, I am in a tiny minority who never have an asthma attack in their life until they go onto e-cigarettes. Now I can be found during work breaks from critical Zoom meetings with a cigarette in one hand, my inhaler in the other while John lifts a nice cup of tea to my lips ๐Ÿ˜‚

Franci wrote today in another thread "Netflix should do a mini series on the characters in this forum!"

I would be up for that but only prepared to dress up in a nurse uniform if Bollinge is played by George Clooney. Michael Gambon would play Old Barry, Leonard Nimoy as Andy62 and I would cast Geoffrey Palmer as you, franci - grumpily hilarious. Who would you all choose to play yourselves?

Great results Lyn.

Sorry to disappoint Lyn but I think I am more Sid James than Geoffrey Palmer!

Andy62 - definitely a shoe in for Spock!

Bollinge - I miss his irreverent sense of humour hope he is OK wherever he is being sarcastic these days.

And as for Lyn you are always played by Sylvia Kristel in my dreams!

Great news on the PSA too...

This  calls for a measure of self analysis!  I doubt anybody would want to play me, at least as I am nowadays, just an ordinary laid back old guy who takes too long to make decisions after researching everything whether it be the purchase of a kettle or matters relating to PCa, although I do try to pass on some of what I have learnt to others with regard to the latter.  So if he could be persuaded, I would suggest somebody like William Roache as he played the part of generally laid back somewhat boring Ken Barlow, in Coronation Street, with few surprises, might be appropriate. 

I did participate in plays, some years ago now, as one of the events of a thriving Residents Association where I used to live. On every occasion I was the guy who was murdered halfway through so was expendable!

As regards the 'Carry On' films, one of them was largely filmed at Stoughton Barracks on the outskirts of Guildford where I did my Army training and I could have played the part then but not on a remake now, LOL. Incidentally,  the barracks were replaced with a housing development years ago.

I know a little diversion can lighten a heavy subject but hope it doesn't deflect from your thread Lyn.  I am pretty certain that in old forum there used to be a section for jokes but this seems to have been discontinued.

I think Newcastle United have some of the most loyal supporters in the UK. There have been a number of lean years despite various managers and some promising players and even as a 'Gooner' I am pleased they are doing well this year. To my mind the game was spoilt when very well heeled backers bought teams and bought success. A prime example of this is Abramovitch who bought struggling Chelsea who then became very successful. Then there was Manchester City, another good team of years ago but had not done well until big money for players and their wages came there way in recent years and success with it. So it's now Newcastle's turn and you can tell what a difference it has made. This makes it very difficult for many sides who are not owned by Millionaires, Conglomerates or backed by large sponsors, to win major trophies. Another aspect is that fans see very good but expensive foreign players, well those fans that can afford the exorbitant gate fees nowadays. But this also means that many indigenous players miss the chance to play for the top teams. Must say I preferred it in the days when it was largely affordable to all.

I can agree with a lot of that Barry but teams like Newcastle, Chelsea, Man city, etc also have the most phenomenal systems now for identifying and developing home grown talent. I have worked with premier league clubs who blew me away with their child / youth set up - things have really changed in the last 5 years, I would say

Agree leading clubs have their academies and this is beginning to produce some good players. It makes sense because the alternative is to spend many millions of pounds in buying from elsewhere. Also, some players who fail to fulfill promise but are still good, can be sold on to other clubs with smaller budgets. Providing good support to players and their families is indeed important to help players remain happy and be such as not to be a detraction when competing for new players. Clubs are run more like businesses nowadays.

Yes, one of the aspects I was reviewing was the mental health and wellbeing support to these children, who dream of a professional career at a PL club and then are injured at a young age or 'let go' by their club at the end of a season. Many of them will be paid to play football when they are old enough but perhaps in the lower divisions or regional leagues. The big clubs ensure that these kids get a good education, GCSEs, A levels, media training, online safety training and a solid psychological support offer. Reducing the number of Gary Speeds and Jeremy Wistens is the responsibility of all clubs / elite sports

I haven't updated this thread for a while. Dad nearly died twice and then fell at the airport in August on his way to meet me in France - broke his hip. Fortunately, he has bounced back remarkably well and managed to dance his way through two cruises with his new lady friend & his Caverject Xtra - not bad for an 86 year old! His PSA has risen slightly but to be honest, he is having such a good time he doesn't really want to start with HT and I am okay with that.

John's PSA rose to 0.1 and then fell back to <0.1 so standard pattern of a temporary rise in the Summer. It is now almost 14 years since diagnosis & RP and 11.5 years since SRT. We don't see the onco or urologist anymore - just phone the PSA results through to their secretaries. Life moves on.

As far as Newcastle United goes, that was never a hand ball tonight and the VAR must have taken a backhander :-(

Wow! Your dad's libido is incredible? Is it hereditary? 

Miss February. That's disappointing, you're only on display for 28 days. 

Great news about John. I hope I make a similar recovery ๐Ÿ‘

More importantly how are you doing? Has the ill health of your loved ones had an impact on your own health? It seems relatives and spouses suffer just as much, if not more, than those who actually have this disease.
