    And just a quick update about weight loss, this morning showed 119.8 down from aprox 125.8 around the 20th May. This means 6 kg or ONE STONE in one month:):):)
    I could hardly believe, as I struggled over 125 kg since after 1995.
    Yaaaay:)

    Yeouch! :eek:

    I know bad migraine but, thankfully, never experienced a cluster headache. Phew!

    I know of people that have had them and know they're not at all nice - think of the pain of the worst migraine and then mutiply by infinity!

    I hope you get it resolved soon.

    That sounds about right - you need to get referred to a specialist ASAP!

    Thinking of you!

    Hi gary

    Not sure entirely what you mean. Not a conversion but a self test in English currancy if that's what your referring to. Likewise degrees of heat here it's c and take it its f in the usa?

    Don't know what you're so happy about. 6kg is only 13.2 pounds so you've got another 0.8 llb to go before you lose a stone.

    You should hang your head in shame dear boy.

    Gary - do you get that?

    There we go...:-(
    Hanging my head in shame I do...:-(
    Only 13.2 pounds...:-(
    I'll get the 0.8 and gloriously return;-)
    Until then I'll stick to my Kilograms which are still showing SIX, or 6000 grams ;-)
    Yay!!!
    Thank you for showing me the path of truthful righteousness:-D
