The Daily Cut and Thrust / Re: Mundane Medical Thread
I know I always bang on about it, but shortness of breath = immediate trip to the doctor. Seriously! If I'd taken more notice of it prior to collapsing in A&E I may have avoided a critical illness, a year of recovery and subsequent medical complications.

I think it was a combination of a cold, asthma, stress and over long work hours.  I'm on holiday this week but will be going to a Dr when I get back before getting back into serious gym training.

Season 1 was brilliant, really dark and edgy. Season 2 was stupid and badly written. Season 3 so far is a very drawn out but quite run of the mill police procedural.

Re: True Detective.    Agreed with Season 1 and 2.  Watched the first 3 episodes of season 3 last night and really enjoyed it.  I agree it is drawn out but I was really in the mood for something like that.  Other days I may have given up.

Martha's Vineyard is absolutely great. Whilst Edgartown and Oak Bluffs can get busy during the summer, the rest of the island (especially "up-island") is more tranquil. Re: the ferry, avoid going over from the mainland on Friday or coming back on a Sunday.

Boston had plenty of things going on over the summer (music, exhibits etc). If you can get tickets for Fenway Park, that is an experience. There are plenty of nice beaches etc both north and south (on the cape). West of Boston, if you like music, head to Tanglewood or other music festivals. As well as the beaches, worth heading inland towards the hills/lakes of VT/NH (also a bit cooler, temperature wise).

Mus is local...but if you need more advice pm me.,

Cheers.  I'm intrigued by going to a baseball game, I'm  just not sure I have the attention span for one.

Went a few years ago. Loved it. We had 2-3 nights in Provincetown which was awesome. Went Whale watching and saw quite a few. Salem was a good day out. Go absorb yourself in witchcraft and all that.

Cheers Cape cod and Marthas Vineyard were on the list of possibles and have now moved to the probables.  I do fancy Salem being a Stephen King fan and liking all that witchy sh!t.  Just worried it would be a none event with a couple of tacky attractions.

Heading to Boston MA late summer for a couple of weeks.  Will have car will travel.  Any recommendations of things to do in Boston and the surrounding areas?  Long Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine all in range.  Not keen on dropping as far south as New York.  All assuming planes can fly to and from the UK and someone hasn't built a fecking humongous wall keeping all the aeroplanes out.

Anyone recommend a decent pair of Bluetooth sport headphones for running? Looking to spend upwards of £50 but no more than a ton. Not expecting mind-blowing sound, just something that's got decent connectivity that's not going to drop out on treadmill runs and something that can withstand sweat without breaking.

Currently looking at this one....

I wouldn't spent 50 quid.  I can't recall the number if pairs I've got through that have been destroyed by sweat.  Maybe better ones might be more resiliant but it could be an expensive experiment.

We just had 10 bulk bags of hard core delivered (think about the  volume of 3 cars).
Ms Garf  wants to help by moving it round the back where it’s needed while I get on with other stuff.
Apparently the spade is too unwieldy so I last saw her filling a bucket using a garden trowel.

Don’t want to be dismissive of her efforts, so I’m keeping quiet pissing about on the Internet; it's only polite.

Took me a second to understand this.  Hard core vs Hardcore.
