Hope things work out THH. If its any help I had a very bad retina detachment(90%) a few years ago and they filled the eye with gas, made me sit still for a week then reattached the retina and it seems to be successful, hold thumbs, I have lost a bit of peripheral vision but I had an eye test today for my drivers licence which we renew every 5 years and it was OK. Anyway holding thumbs for an improvement in your sight.

I have not read this thread for a while, but reading ittonight, I am reminded of space and experiments, including this one which made me fall off my chair laughing.

On 1 April 1976, Patrick Moore, the TV astronomer stated to radio listeners that an astronomical event would take place at 9:47 a.m. that day, a conjunction of Jupiter and Pluto, which was expected to have an effect observable everywhere. As Pluto passed behind Jupiter, it would briefly cause a powerful combination of the two planets' gravitation which would noticeably decrease gravity on Earth. If listeners were to jump into the air at that exact moment, they would find they felt a floating sensation.

Soon after 9:47 on that morning, the BBC began to receive hundreds of telephone calls from people reporting they had observed the decrease in gravity. One woman who called in even stated that she and eleven friends had been sitting and had been "wafted from their chairs and orbited gently around the room".

Hello TeeHeeHee

Just want to add my good wishes to those you have already received. I always look forward to your posts; you've got a sense of humour that appeals to me.

All the best

Rab, that event appears to occur around here almost every Friday and Saturday night, I can hardly hold onto my whisky glass laugh.gif

Tomi, sorry to hear of your woes. We've missed your contributions and I wish you well on the treatment front yes.gif

... by the way, to all those who wished me well with the eye problem - thanks; and didn't we do well biggrin.gif
The biggest oroblem was the "squiggles" which didn't bode well for my future: Solid lines like TV frames, door frames and straight lines in the middle of the road had big squiggles ... but that's all a thing of the past tongue.gif An interserting 12 months with a very arresting result biggrin.gif
