Just started watching 'Cloack and dagger' on Amazon Prime. After 4 episodes I still don't get it, but it's well made, and Now I need to know how it ends.

I'm up to episode 3 of Cloak and Dagger, it is really, really, slow. Usually my complaint about modern movies is "too much action, not enough plot", but this show has no plot whatsoever. Three episodes in, and we are up to where they should have been ten to fifteen minutes into episode one. I'm guessing they are basing it on a short run comic series (six or eight issues) and trying to spread that over five seasons of twenty two episodes.

and than there's the World Cup too..............

Did you see today's match? (If not don't read on, spoiler alert.) I know England were playing at their best, but Panama stil have to be really, really bad to loose to us by six to one. And they played dirty, so to loose six to one while cheating - really really really bad players!

How did he "come by" his "Sir" title?

The law has changed now, and I have no idea if this applies to Sir Richard or not, but back when he was knighted the easiest way to get a knighthood was to make a big donation to whichever political party was in power at the time. Do that and most other things were overlooked, you'd practically have to be in jail for eating babies before they refused a donor a knighthood.

... as one favourite comedian would mumble : " Thaaaaat's how to do it ...  ;)

Political Debates - Thick Skin Required for Entry / Re: Brexit to go?
« Last post by kristina on Today at 08:08:59 AM »
Wooh, shouldn't this be in "Political Debates - Thick Skin Required for Entry"? If there are enough British members from each side, this could become the nastiest argument on the board. There could even be blood.

Hello Paul ...  and ... I don't really see a chance for any "heated" arguments about it, because, after all, we don't even have an idea whether or not it might be given a chance to happen during our life-time ...

P.S. There is still a lingering suspicion that politicians were taken by surprise when the outcome of voting did not comply with expectations ...

.... I still agree with what was mentioned above ...  and .... unfortunately, recent developments have suggested, that somehow it seems to go into that direction  ... and  ...  furthermore, I have recently  heard in the radio-news, that the Brexit-deal (whatever that may mean) will cost the British taxpayer around 50--60 Billions ... (whatever that may mean) ... :(

It sounds like you are at an oppressive clinic.    No one has ever given me crap about changing the temp (I like it at 36.7 rather than 37).    There is one RN who thinks I should not touch the machine, but I'm working on that with my MD (he has agreed to help).

1.  You may or may not be able to re-use the same location, but should be able to start a buttonhole elsewhere on the fistula if necessary.

2.  Should not be a problem, but ask the RN who handles buttonholes at your clinic.

When I had buttonhole training, the nurse started the arterial with a sharp.   She then said "OK, your turn" and had me start the venous.

6 years on the same fistula, and the ONLY puncture on the buttonholes that I did not do is that single time the RN made the first stick in my arterial.

Political Debates - Thick Skin Required for Entry / Re: Brexit to go?

What in the world is going on with Brexit/Remain?  Every day I read about the current state of affairs, and every day I am just more baffled.

So, earlier today there was a large rally in London against Brexit and for a second referendum.

What do you all think of that?

On top of that, Donald Trump will be meeting the Queen next month.  How do you think the British public will react to that, if at all?  I am curious to see if the visit will even happen (and if Trump will be visiting Europe at all) after the whole separating children from parents disaster.

I'm starting to wonder if Brexit will ever happen.

Everything is just so....chaotic.

Dialysis: Spouses and Caregivers / establishing buttonholes

Is it possible to establish buttonholes after 1) having staff mess up the initial buttonhole attempt and 2) almost a year of doing rope and ladder?
