for the first time i have been invited by my doctors to take part in some research for mental health. part of the study includes genetic testing and if they find anything abnormal they inform your doctors as well. storing once the genetics is done they don't keep your details after it is completed for peace of mind.

will be interesting for me to do this instead of the nightmares i have been going through which seem to be relentless at the moment am getting there slowly but i wish other bodies wouldn't keep cocking things up doesn't help as it just drags things out when you need to start moving on. been nearly a month now and am still at it just for some loose ends.

going to be battling with the printer scanner over the weekend with hammer ready.

Agreed @mikeydt1. Only by collecting data can ideas be progressed. Benefits to you might be small, but the benefits to future generations could be immense.

Admire your contemplated use of the Birmingham Screwdriver to deal with your printer. Completely bu**ers the kit but makes you feel so much better.
