Re: Hi All

welcome

the advice on making frames first stop on. Charity shops
have lots of old frames,there will be lots in the back room
they cant sell. take them to pieces and reassemble making
smaller, you will gain lots of skills good luck.

Re: Flu jabs

Im not far off 65 which they say is the age to get it,unless other
health concerns exist.I always do research before taking any pill/potions
-big pharma has huge power over doctors and indeed the public
would I have a flu jab -no .I usually get a dose of flu about once a year
isn't that natural?

Re: Looking to take on extra help
