Good morning everyone I write with disturbing news. Yesterday late afternoon there was a double accident outside Earlsfield station whereby a female pedestrian collided with a moped whilst attempting to cross the road. In the subsequent initial ... [ more ]
Christopher
No, I witnessed it. The lady just stepped into the road away from the traffic lights on either side and gave the moped no chance. Poor guy
Christopher
Well, they are vicariously. For example, in avoiding a collision with them a motorist is likely to do damage to himself and other road users. So in that sense, just as bad

My 2 Cats are missing, please keep an eye out for them. They are chipped, but will not wear collars! They are 2 boys named Frankie and Arthur. Please let me know if you see them 😔

The SNARL post doesn't mention if the killer is male or female. I wonder if it's a single person? How can there be no DNA??!

Sally H
in Balham
Really sad to see this as I was walking on Garratt Lane. A paramedic was covering him with extra blankets as he didn't want to go to the hospital. The paramedic asked me if I'm passing again to keep an eye on him and if he's shivering to call them but ... [ more ]
Christopher
Hello, yes I've noticed the poor fella, outside the plumbing store. Just popped back to the office with some soup so I can warm it up and take it back. Luckily we have paper cups in here which we give to delivery drivers in winter. Will update soon
Christopher
Ok, just returned. He was sleeping when I arrived there but woke up when I tried to put the covers over his legs again, gave him the hot soup. He's a young man who insisted that he's fine and has somewhere warm to go to today. Please do keep an eye ... [ more ]
Christopher
In my experience, those on the streets are often edgy (as this fella was) because trust is often a luxury they can't take for granted. I've asked two staff members who head towards Tesco to take a look for him later as I couldnt fully trust he does ... [ more ]
Christopher
Hi Sally, that's unfortunately news but he wasn't too friendly when I saw him last time. I doubt he's violent, probably influence by alcohol and wary of authorities. Most importantly be cautious and aware

IBS

Luke S in Copse Hill
Was hoping to start a post on the above subject. Anyone suffering? Any cure ideas. Any comments?

As Alan said above, it has different triggers in each of us but once you recognise what causes it and/or bloating removing that thing from your diet and slowly reintroducing after a 6 week period would be wise. Someone I know suffered very very badly ... [ more ]
Christopher
Well, does it occur after a particular meal? Does it occur regularly during a particular part of the day? How long have you suffered it?
