The new splint on righty has been in play for 3 days now, today is the fourth, and I am not sure that we are getting very far forward. When I install the splint in the morning it hurts such that it is a real struggle to get it fully flush, the angle is that aggressive, but after a few hours the splinted angle becomes almost comfortable. The odd thing is that when I remove the splint I can see an improvement in the angle in the direction that the splint is pushing but a reduction in the opposite direction. I can’t think that there is anything in the structure of the wrist that would result in a limited angle so my next best guess is that whilst I am seeing big changes the net result is gradual increase in angle.
In the news today comes the ‘shock’ revelation that kebab meat could contain horse, really? Have you ever eaten a kebab in the UK? Especially Doner, a name which was chosen, I am sure, so as to be as far removed from any animal name as possible. The Doner does not need any refrigeration and has ingredients that are carefully selected to ensure that the odour remains in the sin for longer than curry! This is without doubt as far removed from meat in its natural sense as one can get, if it contains horse then they will market it as a premium variant with some justification. The kebab argument goes a step above the ‘value’ debate that I have previously published, this is a food whose dominant sales period is immediately after the pubs discharge their drunken customers if people really believe that this contains meat then they have serious naivety issues. I for one would like to survey the general public on the issue of contaminants in kebab meat; the first question I would ask would be ‘what meat is in doner kebab?’ and if the answer was forthcoming I would have to claim to be the wallet inspector and demand an on the spot ‘inspection.
Great news from the world of Linked In (a business networking site) where I am apparently in the top 5% of profiles viewed out of 200 million profiles, I take Collin’s congratulations in the sincere manner in which it was obviously meant. On a further positive note Linked In is not a dating site and so my mission to remain resolutely single is not adversely affected.
Off to meet up with Mickey this evening and check up on the security of his John Smiths, a cheeky guest appearance from Pete and maybe Donna should help stress his relationship with ye olde wagon.
