After a couple of ordinary trial jobs on my rear teeth, which aren't really a problem as the beads are a low melting point plastic that can simply be popped in hot water and remolded as often as desired, I ended up just capping my broken rear teeth totally with the stuff resulting in being able to eat without have to spend ages picking out food bits from the holes, plus also being able to chug cold drinks without a flood of tears from the pain, another happy side effect is Olivia thinks my breath is less foul than prior to using it. It's nice not having to get up in the middle of the night because of toothache, so bad as my capping may have been, for now I'm very pleased.
Today in this photo I've used them for a cosmetic purpose, covering the stump of the number two tooth that I broke nearly 20 years ago, as well as the missing side of the number one where the recent filling fell out of and the number 3 which had a chunk break off a couple of days ago. None of these caused pain so with a small amount of shame I have to say this is largely cosmetically driven, although the main driver is my inherent urge to be an independent DIY sort of person, all the while learning.
The downside of today's trip was once again suffering nasty hip pain from a not terribly extended drive, it's something I'm going to have to deal with or just stop driving. I'll try changing the seat angle first and hope it doesn't aggravate a coccyx injury I copped 35 years ago, dunno why my hip is playing up as I find the seat quite comfortable otherwise, the pills I take for what seems like every disease known to man are of course the reason for joint pain but I just have to work around that.
At least today's health promotion was fairly quick, harmless and meaningless. I would have asked today's speaker who as part of his taxpayer funded business dabbles in diet if there's a good food for eyesight that doesn't require teeth, but the opportunity never arose.
In my view the whole set up is aimed towards attracting taxpayer funding but it does serve the purpose of giving some of the less able amongst us a chance to socialise.
I much prefer the usual commercial bingo cards to these but I sense these are printed out of absolute order to provide a bit of mind exercise.
BTW the first emptyish card here was merely for a line, and the third card suffered from waiting an eternity for the 61 that was never called, but I wouldn't have BINGOed anyway if it had, no need to spoil someone else's day for the non-prize that was on offer.
Of course something bad had to happen as well, as I'd left the TF card in place that I'd put back in to reboot and destroyed it when I clipped the case back together afterwards, bending it, bugger.
People think I'm macabre noting those who I outlive but it's far more interesting than the alternative.
Only a couple of days ago I outlasted Scottish singing legend Andy Stewart of "A Scottish Soldier" fame, a big hit in these parts back in 1961 or so.
I have poor health yet have outlasted a growing list of celebrities, but then I don't smoke.
Another photo from my archive of Mega, this time from back of the Marlo pub at the end of 1981.
Mega's in front showing off his watch and fancy dark coloured specs. I'm in the rear having a relaxing time which was aided by the usual pouring of beer down my throat. Mick Mac was between us.
From memory the Moon and Venus were very closely aligned that evening so it would be about the 29th December according to the Planetarium extension for Chrome browser.
