What's wrong with your ribs, Rog? Did Mrs. Worrier strongly take offense to one of your signature lines? snicker

All good! wave Would have also accepted terbium and ytterbium, manxman.

Not yet, Cue lol Tripped, went sprawling and either cracked or badly bruised a number of ribs. Over here there don't bother with x-rays unless it'a an obvious bad break, just tell you to go away and pop pain-killers for the nest 4-6 weeks sad

7. Bridegroom (hope you heal quick Rog - I broke some and it sure did hurt and you are right, they do not do anything to treat them in the UK. Perhaps a portion of spare ribs is the only answer lol) thumbsup wave

Sorry to hear about your fall, Rog. I hope you recover soon. I'm sure that even though you're on the injured list, you still get some ribbing from the Mrs. lol
