It's probably for the best Robin...
A creaking creeping shadow
stiff against the freezing fog
glares at a tickless watch.

Time has failed him -- all things shall pass.

having just finished a second floor composite desk, in full cold weather gear, and the only available access via a ladder, plus trudging around in the snow... my mind says i feel about 78  :o

way too many days without work. my body went soft on me.

Yes,  but look at all that fresh air and exercise and frostbite and pneumonia you got.... Invigorating  :o

You know you are middle aged when you just got a shot of 'Prevnar 13' (Our latest purchase $100 each).  :smiley-confuse:



No technical PMs.
The last thing you did is where you should start looking.

Here, Australia, it is covered by PBS, Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme.
My wife was on Disability Pension Card, so her  shot was free, being over 50yo helps too I think.
The two PBS are for Centrelink Benefit Card Holders and Non Card Holders I think.

This is 2015 patient cost of the shot.
I'm not sure if they are the same, but Pneumovax ie what is dispensed.
Just found a listing, they are the same, put the two names together and you get the full pharmacy name.

Don't understand what young pheasants are talking about.
What a fowl thing to say.

It would be interesting to see the impartial scientific study that justifies the extra cost between $49 and $126.

I wonder if it is the same as the difference between Sainsburys and Waitrose supermarkets? It is said the main purpose of Sainsburys is to keep the riff-raff out of Waitrose.

(Apologies if the analogy does not make sense in OZ).

Two or three hours spent thinking and reading documentation solves most programming problems.

I had mine a couple of years ago for free. (Another benefit of the NHS).

It would be Coles/Woolworths/Aldi  and  David Jones Stores  here in Victoria, OZ.

You still have Woolworths? They went bust here, about 5 years ago.

You're middle-aged when you actually had active MySpace account.

It had been that long since MySpace was decent, and some of my friends were on it with me.  I don't know if my account is still up but I changed so the background music were of crickets.

You know you are middle-aged when you go  to clean the mouse ball and wonder where the mouse cable went and where is the PS2 socket on the computer.

what would somebody be considered if they not only knew how to load a punch-card program, but also how to write one? (not me :P )
