News report this morning from our cousins in Kiwiland.....
A kiwi gentleman has contracted the dreaded DVT from sitting at his 'pooter for 12 to 18 hours at a time. Ended up with a massive clot in his lung but fortunately responded to treatment and survived.
Cooda's first thought on hearing the introduction to the story was that it might have been a certain retired geordie mariner. Was very relieved it was only an anonymous kiwi.
Nevertheless, its food for thought.
