1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    That's almost exactly the same as me.
    Usually I get a reaction when no reaction is normal. This time nothing.

    @papaver i think this leg pain is also severe cramp. It’s kind of seized up and feels like it needs to “release.” It didn’t go like it was a pull or a tear. Weird.
    My wife is having hers later today so expecting the worst.

    I'm back to work this morning after the Bank Holiday weekend and 40 minutes in the legs already don't feel right. Not hurting like they were but recovering from days of cramp. Sounds like it has possibly induced cramp in you too.

    @Lostkiwi, that sounds idyllic, je suis vert avec envie. Our last trip to France in 2019 was a write-off due to the heatwave, nothing we had planned was accomplished, even the food bill was lower than expected but the G&Ts added up! A bread vending machine sounds horrendous but knowing the French love of bread it has to work exceptionally well, I guess there’s une boulangerie attached. I’m getting my 2nd jab tomorrow and that will be both of us done. My first jab just left me with a very sore arm, reading some of these horror stories I’m hoping for the same, nothing worse. We’re sitting tight until October and if the figures are still flat we will venture out to St Ives (if they'll have us). That said if we had to put money on it we’re expecting cases to be on an increase, all this travel cannot end well.

    I've had both, not sore but tender on the spot, no ill effects whatsoever on any of them, mine was the Oxford one, my dad 80 has had both his pfizer, he had no issues, my sister had the 2nd pfizer and had the feeling of a heavy cold, headache but back to normal after a overnight sleep.

    So don't be put off and the 2nd isn't always worse then the first.

    You are correct about the bread machine. It's run by the bakery on the edge of the car park and the bread is very good (better than the supermarket stuff and cheaper).

    Restocked daily in the morning so always fresh.

    And yet in Britain we cannot get a decent baguette anywhere, mostly.


    Paul's in Holland Park is the nearest to proper French quality that I have found.
    15 miles from home!!!

    I’m on my 611th day “streak” on Duolingo, mostly French but a bit of Spanish and German too.
    I could already speak fairly decent French but I want to improve my conversational skills. I had a good chat with a local chap in the Pyrenees and got by okay but stumbled a few times plus a random passing of time as I waited behind a herd of cows after descending a mountain on my MTB. Just need to be immersed in it for a while.

    My leg is improving but still limping and slightly spaced out; extremely heavy weather last night kept us awake which didn’t help. Now I can’t even go for a walk for exercise; arrrghhh!

    On the upside I’m receiving a stream of photos from the guy glassing my new surfboard (precisely custom made to my spec) which is keeping me smiling.

    I’d say if you do feel rough, rest more than you think you should, drink gallons of water and avoid any hard exercise for a week.

    I wondered if there were fellow Duolingoers on here, I’m on day 1047, the previous streak broken only for a bit of cardiac surgery. I wish my capability (in French) reflected the amount of work I put in but that’s far from the case. The good thing it keeps the mind ticking over.

    Wow nice one! I had about 300 days before an accidental streak break too but pay a bit for the Plus version. Well worth it IMO. One thing I regret never doing is becoming fluent in a language. It's always fascinated me and even "defunct' Latin hooked me at school. It also means I can laugh at a certain person when he tries to "show off" his Latin which is very poor.
    My kids are doing well in French and Spanish (aged 10 and 12) - my son in particular is a bit of a star at pronunciation (he won some award for French last month). As you say it keeps the mind busy and challenged. And useful when laid a bit low too.

    I haven't done anything since school french (6 years of it some mumble years ago).

    Our neighbours in France don't speak much English and want to learn so whenever we chat across the fence we try to speak French and they try to speak English. My biggest problem is getting part way through a sentence then realising I don't know the word for something. Getting better though.
    Before Covid we used to have the occasional meal together which was always great fun too.

    We've been very lucky with them as they look after the house when we aren't there and even mow the front lawns for us so it looks like there's someone home. They also park one of their cars outside just to add to the illusion and if anyone comes round they are out there supervising what they are doing (we sometimes get deliveries or tradesmen round if we need it). Incredibly good neighbours.

    Drink plenty and take alternate paracetomol and ibuprofen. When my son had a bad reaction he stayed in bed.

    Oh no @Lostkiwi !
    I just did a long, deep leg stretch and walked a few miles. A bit uncomfortable but way better. Definitely watch out for the leg cramps; seems to be quite common.
    Hopefully paracetamol will take that high temperature down a bit.

    Duolingo is great! I was surprised how much french was locked away in my nogin, but came to a wall where I really needed to talk to somebody in French to move forward. When that oppurtunity arrises I will start again!
    Been over a month since my first jab and no second invite yet.

    I booked my second jab at the same time as my first. I think they’ve improved the system.
    It’s incredibly well organised IMO and shows what us Brits can do when people come together.

    I did the same as this,booked both together,I got my first jab yesterday,I had to cross the Thames and headed to a theatre in Gravesend that has been converted to a vaccination centre.
    As I pulled up and pulled into the carpark I could see a queue of approx 45 to 50 people outside the centre and just thought oh no a bloody queue,not in the mood for this at 8.30 on a bank holiday monday morning heading for an injection with a fear of needles.
    I had no sooner joined the queue and realised that it was moving at walking pace,not too bad,a few minutes later I was booking in,then on to another lady to explain everything and then onto the chair where I didn't feel a thing.There must have been 30 odd stations set up for injecting the vaccine,the whole thing was working like a well oiled machine,an absolute first class service without a doubt.
    On a side note,I did mention to the nurse that was giving me all the info before the injection phase that I was a bit anxious and had a fear of needles and was offered to be brought into the quite zone which was more private and you would not see other people being injected but I went to the normal one in the end but the option was there.
    Reaction wise,very mild headache this morning.
    Really very impressed with the whole setup.
