    Thought I was funny when editing your post :)
    Have no fear, it's all about context so you may learn all about dams, locks, dykes, weirs and even mother animals and discuss them :)

    And apparently, we can learn about slagheaps but not a single piece of stony waste matter separated from metals during the smelting or refining of ore :)

    I am sure you could teach me a lot in Dutch ... but I wouldn't condone it in a public forum.
    Feel free to PM me if you have anything you want to get off your chest and I'll check it out with my Dutch colleagues. :)

    On a diabetes related topic, I just come across this video of Chris Pennell* (a professional rugby player with type 1 diabetes).
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/av/get-inspired/36225872
    It is a couple of years old but I thought it was very interesting to see how little insulin he takes due to his exercise and his diet.

    Apologies for derailing the thread. Feel free to get back to discussing the far more important and educational topic of rude words :)

    *@Knikki I thought you would be interested as an alternative to my Henry Slade obsession (as you saw it) from earlier in the year.

    Got to admit, I've looked and searched everywhere and can't find any rails.....

    we even, now and again, mention the D word and help each other. And we give English language lessons!

    No, they're relatively cheap to buy on Amazon and my consultant said the skin doesn't need cleaning before injecting.

    I don't think I will qualify for having a hypo hound in the near future (well here's hoping): https://hypohounds.co.uk/faqs/ But I'm sending them a donation.

    Here's a DIY hypo detection dog training guide. I'm going to try this myself with my two spaniels. I was planning on getting them the Kennel Club Good Citizenship Award Scheme to GOLD anyway.

    My youngest, at 8 months, is fascinated by my blood testing and injections already and appears at my side whenever I'm testing. The major thing appears to collect a whole lot of spit whenever I'm hypoing or hypering to freeze for practice scent sessions.

    On the scale of 1-10, does anyone think an ice cream van would have a vegan option? There's one driving around in my neighbourhood and my stomach doesn't want to scream. :hilarious:

    Depends where you are, I suppose. I had a vegan soft scoop ice cream from a van in that London - and some here in the sticks of South Wales do a vegan Magnum... be worth asking, and if they don’t have any right now, they’ll realise there’s a demand.

    Marrows are a waste of space in the garden and the mouth. Courgettes are magic if you remember to look for them hiding under leaves.It's too hot to eat. The stingy nettles live another day. Feet swollen, pain in the big toe and feeling a bit rough. Hope everyone's doing OK

    Context, context, context. You’re in trouble if your context is out of context.;););)
