Well, this kind of stuff is what keeps Charlie Saxe-Coburg and Gotha looking so well ... we all know how he promotes this dodgy alternative stuff.  Oh, and maybe he's like that because he's never done an honest days work in his life, never had to bend down to tie his own shoelaces, never hand to wipe his own arse, only ever eaten the finest grub supplied by Fortnum and Mason.

 

We must remember Yekaterinburg.

The headache cure may work for mild headaches as there is some evidence that lavender helps you sleep. Alternative medicines are fine for the worried well but real illness needs conventional medicine. (Free at the point of delivery) See what I did there. Turn any thread political me!

Getting back on subject, there are bound to be some useful things in old herbal remedies but I wouldn't trust them unless they had had full clinical trials. Like many of us I probably would have popped my clogs years ago if it hadn't been for conventional medicine, not to mention surgery. However there are some useful things around such as aspirin (willow bark), digitalis (foxgloves), penicillin (mould). There's bound to be plenty more in the rainforests, they just need finding. Goodness knows what the pharmaceutical industry is growing now with a bit of genetic tweaking here and there.

I'm particularly intrigued by the cure for ringworm! "Find a pot of a man's urine". The Word 'find' suggests that this should be the urine of an unknown male. We'll I mean, if it was your old-man's urine you wouldn't need to 'find' it. Presumably you would know where he kept his pot. How does one go about 'finding' pots of urine - and, once found, how does one know with certainty that it's a man's urine? What's the magic ingredient in male urine that's not to be found in female urine? And, finally would male urine found in anything else than a pot do the trick? I think we may need to start a new topic for this one.

I think they're taking the p--- . To quote an old nursing joke.

Never mind Canny's ringworm ... men's urine is a good way of warding off foxes (it does work, as does Jeyes Fluid).  Female urine is sometimes know as 'the golden shower'.  If some of our viewers want to know where that description came from just ask and Sym will provide the answer.

Now this is interesting, Symptoms. We are plagued with foxes here. Must it be men's urine and what do I do with it? Do I spray it round the boundaries of the property, over the entire garden or do I just get the old man to have his morning pee here and there and everywhere? Golden showers? I'm not going to ask! In this neck of the woods it means something that would be considered unfit for inclusion on this site.

Urine is a cure for bites and stings I believe.

Waste not Want Not!

Potties needed.

Everyone used to have en suite facilities.

They are never mentioned now Canny lass.

People used a special cream bought in little pots.

Can't remember the name.

Chilblains the very name reminds you of the past.

Stone hot water bottles , coal fires, toasting forks, playing cards on a card table !

All by the fire

Chillblains are probably rare now because people don't sit in front of an open fire slow roasting their legs anymore.  :)

Canny - walk around your garden and sniff for MrFoxy's (not our beloved foxy) scent markings ... you can't miss it, strong, pungent, sweet.  Get MrCanny to piddle there and get him to do it often ... MrFoxy (not our beloved foxy) will get the message.

    • A big-hearted donation by one of South East Northumberland’s largest employers has enabled local football club, Bedlington Terriers FC, to provide its players, staff and visitors with rapid emergency response should it ever be needed.
      Lynemouth Power Station has gifted the community club with a life-saving heart defibrillator which will now be installed at the Welfare Park ground. If deployed within three to five minutes of a cardiac arrest, such equipment could potentially increase the chances of someone surviving a heart attack from six to 74 per cent. Each minute without CPR and defibrillation also reduces a patient’s survival rate by between seven and ten per cent.*
      The Northern League Division Two club is home to seven teams and over 80 footballers from senior players to an under 6 ‘tots’ team. Along with daily training sessions and match attendances, the club sees hundreds of people visiting the ground on a weekly basis therefore the defibrillator has been very well received by all.
      Rowan Edwards, Commercial Director of Bedlington Terriers FC, commented, “This is a vital piece of first aid equipment and we are extremely grateful to Lynemouth Power Station for their kind donation. Given the number of on-site staff, players training each week and visitors to the ground, it is essential that our trained staff have instant access to life-saving equipment in case of emergencies. It will mean a lot to everyone here at the club as well as the local community, so we’re very grateful for the power station’s support.”
      Janet Mole from Lynemouth Power Station added, “Having these devices installed in popular public places and venues is so important, so rather than just donate to the fundraising effort, we decided to purchase the equipment outright on behalf of the club. As a local employer, it is important that community initiatives like this are well supported so we’re delighted to hand over the defibrillator to all at the club.”
