We used to have a cafe which was the closest the Forum had to a chat room. I went looking for it but it is not anywhere near the front pages so if there are no objections here is an up to date, brand new Diner. Decorated to look like the one in American Graffiti but with the addition that the propriotor as a Beatles fan has pictures on the walls from the Hamburg days.
The reason I was looking for it is I am at the NEC and in a spot of bother and was hoping to raise some help from any PWP in the locality. I have a couple of hours to sort this out before the exhibition starts and the computer is closed down.
To cut a long story short I have lost todays meds and would welcome helpful suggestions. There is no need for critical ones as I have already applied all of them to myself and am now feeling like the stupidest man on the planet.
there is such a thing as emergency supply but you have to be a ******* pharmacist to see the rules. i suspect if you go to a pharmacy they will give you one days worth of pills without to much trouble.
lastly, there is a boots at the airport which might open early
Thanks Turnip, will try a Chemist if I can locate one on a Sunday. I suspect I will be ok anyway although at the moment I am a bit dizzy but at least i will not have to drive.Boots hopefully will help.
Hello Turnip and Bogmam.........can I get coffee and a couple of tablets here?
ususally see you two in Creative Corner...
good morning pb. just had my early morning madopar - yummy! had a good nights sleep thanks to a foam overlay - works wonders on an old bed.
Hello cafe folk, I am now back home after almost a day without meds. I felt kinda toxic, headachy and burbly, knees and neck slightly rigid and walk slowed to a shuffle. Other than that no real probs but I wonder what it would be like to go cold turkey for a week?
As this is a Cafe, are we talking 'cold turkey' sandwiches here ???
Glad you ok.
Thanks Mike. Will ye be wanting Mayo with the Turkey?
Seriously though, I will not be wanting to try a day without meds again. Twenty four hours on and I am suffering cramps. Woke up about 3am and my right hand was twisted into a claw. Not had that one before.Any more trips will be vetted to enth degree to confirm that I have enuf for a 90 day siege.
Will you be attending the together events as I would like to renew our acquaintance?
I've just had a lovely Stalevo coffee.....mmm
Yes please, turkey on rye with a light mayo, a little cranberry on the side - mmm excuse the dribbling.
I travel to Denmark fairly regularly , and I am always afraid of losing or forgetting my meds, so now I leave a small supply over there, just in case, and renew them when I get there again, so they are never out of date.
Which events are you thinking about ?
They are usually regional events held in the summer and are similar to the one I sat beside you at!
I think I will ask the owner to get an alcohol licence as I fancy a Merlot or a Rioja with some cheese and .
Chips, bread 'n butter and a mug of tea please.

I am away for one week and I get home and what do I see....."The Red Rose Cafe!!! "What, may I ask is wrong with "the WHITE Rose Cafe"!!! After all we won the Battle of the Roses!

May I please have a cup of Yorkshire tea and a Sally Lunn.
Welcome back, and glad you had a good holiday.
My iPad works everywhere also, but as it's a Mk 1 model, I have had difficulty in Internet connection/ hotspots but now I take my iPhone with me also and send Internet etc from the phone to the larger screen on the iPad, works well.
I'm having a cappuccino and a Danish, hope your 'cuppa' is to your taste?
Ok, so,long as you ate paying! Thanks.
