    If it is less than than 72 hours from when the rash appeared ring 111 and get some acyclovir. The neuralgia pain can last from weeks to months. If it is a problem Drs prescribe pain maskers rather than pain killers as the latter do not usually help

    I’m a member but you just get a magazine each month. To be fair I’ve not bothered to find out how much help they are capable of giving

    Well, if the FC aren’t interested go for what you think right mate. Restock with 20% non natives for future proofing I don’t think it’s rocket science. My FC fellow just said as long there is still a wood there in 10 years they are happy

    NPTC would this be a pass or fail ?

    But when I feck a chain I just put another on once I’ve finished the cut with the metal in

    I don’t get it. Can’t see any metal foreign bodies in there. Still no excuse if he fecked the chain on a nail anyway surely
