    100% genuine - My mum was in tears (happy tears) on the phone last night when I told her we'd booked flights. I'm genuinely thankful for all those that have been vaccinated so that I, and many others can come home. Did it take longer then I hoped, yes, but it is what it is. All smiles from me!

    Thanks for your insightful feedback, but unfortunately it just isn't that simple. If you'd read the very bottom of my post, you would have read that as much as I'd like to stop reading this post, I'm addicted, I can't not read it, or comment on it occasionally. There are no AA meetings or...

    Just as well we all asked for your savvy internet response, as we would have missed the opportunity for you to show that your wit is matched only by that of your intelligence.

In articles I have read, Sudden cardiac death is the...
