    One of the rules of triage at an accident site:

    The screamers are obviously in need, but probably not going to die soon.

    The people not moving or making any noise are the cause for greater concern.

    Check them first.

    the screamers might die while you are strangling them to make them shut up .

    Yeah this.

    Before Xmas my work started replacing furniture in Rooms, (Hotel/Resort) and donated a lot of furniture to several local 'Hospice' type shops, Sally Army, Red Cross types. A mate visiting one of said stores last week sees one of our furniture items for sale, price tag $300. How in the bloody hell is that helping those in need? (Dicks)

    Well that is what they do, no secret, they advertise the fact.

    after seeing the care the mother inlaw got at the hospice and an uncle I don't have a problem paying what they ask for stuff and my parents and siblings also donate stuff to them . my mother even buys jars from them to put preserves in and tells anyone who gets them to give the empties back to the hospice shop so she can buy them again next year to do the same. our local hospice needs over $2 million a year in donations to keep operating as not funded by healthcare.

    Won a Hospice raffle a while back. When they asked for an address wife said to re raffle it or give it to one or two of your needy families. Got a couple of think yous in the corridor a week later. They deserve all the charity they can get. Money can't buy the care they give, and I know the carers aren't raking the coin in.
    I think we're all guilty at some stage of re gifting or selling on if it doesn't meet our needs

    soluble panadol. drop two in a glass of water, take a big sip, but not a mouthful. hold it in your mouth and let it swish past the tooth. hold it in there as long as you can be bothered and do it again. Rinse and repeat until all gone.
    you'd get 4 or 5 goes from a glass. Good for getting to sleep at night

    Cheers will bear this in mind. It's not too bad at the moment (dont like using pain relief) but when food goes in the hole and touches the nerve.... Will be well over it in 6weeks!

    get some chewing gum and put it in the hole while eating or drinking and if you can get it to go hard then it will help for a while.

    Heard a story years ago about a hard old bugger down south westland way, possibly Okarito?
    Living on his own all his life sort of dude. tried fixing a big hole in his tooth with araldite glue.
    Someone coming around for a visit asked him why his face was all swollen otherwise it would've gone really bad I suppose. Had to go to hokitika to get it sorted
