    The weather ?

    Winter Paralympic coverage

    Yeah a bit of a myth really, there seems to be lots that like to watch sport but not so much participating, much like here really.

    Yes I agree entirely, certainly in the 80s it was pretty much guaranteed that winter would be winter.

    Yes exactly right, recent winters have been ridiculously mild, I had shorts on into December which would have been unheard of in years gone by. Even this winter overall hasn't been bad as you know, apart from the recent snow It's been another mild one.

    Very true, can't argue with that.
  6. As I say we van only speak about our own èxperiences, my GP in Brisbane took a year almost go the day to diagnose a herniated disc. Our GP here has been brilliant. It' our experience and the only one we can comment on.

    Why don't we have the choice of using an ANGRY reaction to a post ?
  9. Of course, I can only comment on my own experiences. Our experiences in a large city (Brisbane) was very different and probably 50% positive at best. When someone says 'in the UK you have to wait months for this' or similar comments nothing is said, it's just accepted as applying to the whole country but because we have had good experiences it is questioned. Many of our recent experiences have been in Cheltenham so not really rural.

    Thanks Doc, what would we do without your sage advice ?

    Quality of life for kids

    Yes absolutely. Years ago winters were guaranteed to be cold and icy for months and months, now it seems if you get a cold month it's unusual. This recent snow and cold is just not what we have become used to.

    As I keep saying people can only comment on where they live. You can expect people to say it's a lovely day here but 80 miles North apparently it's raining.

    Are you in the medical profession Parley ? I only ask as you seem to know all about medical conditions and are able to diagnose issues via a forum. You were afterall able to tell me I was obese without even seeing me ?

    Winter Paralympic coverage

    Seems to be hugely popular here and the coverage is very comprehensive, we have watched quite a bit. Perhaps Australia isn't expected to do very well so no need to cover it ?
