Flue jabs are a wast of time,each time it goes through someone it mutates,they only put the most suspected serum in it but you are more likely to catch a mutant one.

I'm always in two minds to get the jab or not, so far I've not bothered and not had flu, just a cold now and then.

We park our car across the front of the van, never thought of it as security...mind you it's in a coded entry parkland also!
Can be a messy job taking down a chimney...good luck!

Blimey Chris, hope you are tackling an internal stack, its not the weather to be outside, certainly not up here anyway ....I'm in trouble this week, replaced the clay fireback in our fireplace and didn't quite sheet up properly, some marks on the carpet ... ouch..

Point of interest about the flu jab.

A couple I garden for, both experienced medics. She's a retired nurse, hubby a retired general surgeon.
Neither of them have ever had flu jabs in their lives and have no intention of ever having them.

Did you know that if you've already had flu - and I mean proper flu, not just a heavy cold - you are then probably about 98% naturally immunised against future episodes of flu?

But even if you catch flu again, or a different 'strain' of flu, it should hit you way less hard than if you'd never had flu before.

Just sayin'. If you've never had flu before then maybe have it, otherwise the choice is yours ;) 😷 💉

I recently took a Chimney stack down,and a large chimney breast, made the room a lot bigger, as you say lots of bricks and mess, I piled all the rubble in my front Garden and put a sign out saying free hardcore, lots of comments about Porn , some guy called in with a tranny pickup truck and took the lot, he was well pleased as was I.

Not quite sure what you are implying, Trigger.
Sounds a little like a veiled insult directed at two people you know nothing about, or implies that I'm talking nonsense, although I may be misinterpreting you completely, so forgive me if I am.

These two ex-medics are bright. Extremely bright in fact.
Both fit as fiddles and never smoked a fag in their lives.

Ultimately the choice of whether to have a flu jab or not is down to the individual.
I'm not talking about the paranoia surrounding jabs like MMR; this is a different illness and a different jab altogether.
