    If they know the crim is armed, the police send an armed response unit, as far as I can tell. I believe they wear Kevlar vests as well.

    I know all about the powers that be not funding enough midwives (or nurses) to do the job properly. I am a long time member of The Association of Radical Midwives who have campaigned long and vigorously to redress this. I will be with the ARM for a week soon and will spend a lot of time on the subject.
    I am far too old for NHS work but could do Independent. Would need to crank up skills to work clinically now to get my ticket back.

    They carry a baton that they can get out and hit him with - that's if they can get 'em before they get shot of course. At the moment shooting a police officer is a HUGE no no, and I hope it stays that way forever. However, I can see a day where all our officers will have to be armed.

    What is a TIC?

    Kate that reminds of the scene in Raiders of the Lost Arc - the guy swinging a huge bull whip and then what's his name shoots him. I think its cool that it works. Its a bit incomprehensible to a Merkin. Its a major deal to shoot an office here too, but that doesn't seem to stop them.

    Our policemen do wear a "Bat-belt".
    It's very cumbersome. I don't know what's on it. Appears to be a short club, a radio, a box that probably has a plaster (bandaid) or two, and surely one of those Swiss pen knives that has "all you need"... Oh, and a pair of 'cuffs.
    Not many wear the big tall helmet now, I think they are reserved for special occasions.
    A pity, they were fun to knock off!!!!

    'Meh' is a noise you make when you're angry, upset, or when you don't care...I can't really translate it into another word, and i am really bad at explaining things :-\
    Example of 'meh':

    "You wanna go to the cinema?"
    "Meh, I have nothing better to do..."

    STUUUUUUPID ****** SPIDERS!!!!!!!!! :cursing: :tearhair: :_oh_really:

    That is the fifth one that has come scuttling through the room tonight...and i'm not on about itty bitty baby spiders, oh no, these things are HUGE! The monsters of all spiders...

    I can cope if they're not near me, but running out from under the couch between my feet is toooo close for comfort! Then running towards me when i'm trying to put a cup over the damn thing is NOT GOOD! I was leaping around the room like a nut case, and squealing like a guinea pig (couldn't scream my parents are in bed :-\ )

    Well i refuse to take the spider out, it can stay under a glass until my dad gets up from work...and this time he can put the spider right out in the field, because dropping it outside the door, the same spider is coming in again and again, i swear!!

    Sheesh...still, at least it didn't run over my foot :D

    OMG - how much did it weigh??? Eeek.

    Question: is anyone else's economy imploding, or just the US? Banks closing, financial institutions failing. A 100 year old very successful bank in my state was just "seized by the Fed" and then bought by Chase. I know people losing their jobs because of all this. And, the people responsible for all of it (pro-deregulation) are currently making it even worse. I feel really frightened at the moment. And curious about what you hear about it in other countries.

    Yes Diane, its just as bad here I'm afraid.

    As for spiders - I sympathise Red! Your story reminded me of something that happened a couple of years ago at work. I had bumped into the girl from the office opposite on the way into the building. When we got outside our doors there, on the floor, was an upside down plastic cup. "What's that doing there?" she said. We looked at it and discussed the options. Someone dropped it? A candid camera stunt? No, we figured it had to be something nasty underneath and we knew just who to blame.

    We cut through my office to my boss's office. "What's under the cup Roger?" we asked. "What cup?" he smirked. Ha, guilty. At that, the guy I shared an office with arrived. "What's with the cup?" he asked. "Go have a look" Roger replied. So he picked it up and a HUMUNGOUS spider emerged and proceeded to run up and down the corridor, trying to decide which office to terrorise. Me and my friend (also called Kate) both shouted "OH MY GOD - GEDDIT NOW" and ran into another office. Knowing what they were like we had to watch to make sure they removed it and didn't put it in a drawer or something. The spider kept running towards wherever we were as we dodged from office to office, and in the end we had to threaten to go to human resources and report him for harrassment before he'd remove it. Yuk. Couldn't decide which was worse - the spider or my boss.

    By the way Red, when you throw a spider out it will immediately throw out a web (like Spiderman!) and when it lands, follow the web back, so it probably is the same one. My mother in law also says that spiders are always in pairs. Be warned!

    Oh, another spider story...I was walking yesterday and walked through a spider's web (they appear to be everywhere at the moment) and then there was this fat mamma spider attacthed to me!!!

    So i was leaping backwards to get away, but it was obviously attached, so every time i moved it moved too and actually got closer! I was horrified and ended up running up the hill trying to escape... :rolling:

    No, you are quite correct. The measure would have been in "Fingers" which is a little wider. (Only two are used to assess the measurement, which would obviously be more than two !!)

    I have various dictionaries (does it show?) but my most used one is a little pocket Oxford, kept within arms reach. I enjoy looking up words, find new ones on the journey and also new ways of using that word. It's all an education that comes in very useful at the most unexpected of times.

    I'd have picked up on something like that (if I'd watched it!) and hubby would've complained that "it was only a tv programme" and not to be picky etc etc. BUT, if a 2-stroke motorbike had gone past with a 4-stroke noise, WELL, that'd be hell to pay then!!!

    Lots of 'em; we both used to shoot, and he still does. Only target shooting - precision paper punching! I used to shoot for the county, but did my back in so can no longer shoot prone. And they've made it so hard for gun-owners in this country that I got fed up with all the persecution. Paradoxically, if I were a criminal, I could probably get a gun tomorrow...:\

    My Pa-in-Law founded the local gun club.
    He taught all his children how to shoot etc., He maintained that when they knew how to handle a gun they were a lot safer than those who don't know how.

    I had some kind of gun when I was in Greece. I used to like to shoot the cactus fence with it. Fun, if you aren't shooting an animal.

    "shoot for the county" - Wot's that?

    Maybe an air rifle or slug gun, reasonably harmless at a distance.... although having said that, a man was shot in the head with one last week in my town... and unfortunately it was fatal.

    We had a great day!

    Went to the pub which is a minute's walk from Hawthorns. I had a veggie Korma which was lovely! :) Then we went to Stafford and did some shopping.

    Makes me glad my clients come to me. I can just take Holly for a walk or read or something when there's a no-show. Do you charge them double, CC?

    No, I'm a soft old tart. I know I ought to, but if it's a genuine mistake I feel mean.
    Praps I'll wait until our rescheduled appointment, and if their house is posher than ours inside, or if I don't get offered a cuppa tea, I'll make a surcharge! :D

    Rant: the cleaners are coming in tomorrow and i have to take everything off my desk, sink area, bedside table etc and put it all on my bed....whyyyyy?! Can't they just vac my room & i'll clean the surfaces??

    My desk is covered in plants, photos, vases, stationary etc etc and it's all perfectly set out, LOL ...argh! :cursing:

    Because not everyone can be trusted to clean their work surfaces, that's why. And on the plus side at least you'll get to sort the heaps out once a week. And there may not be heaps now, but by the end of term I bet there'll be a damn sight more than plants, photo's, vases and stationery! (Bottles, beer mats, traffic cones, policeman's helmet...:D)
