Answering my own question in another thread, I see that the Umra Recipe
Book ("Food enjoyed by the sort of people who like listening to The
Archers") is still online. Perhaps I should have let Jane tell us this
as it was her project but anyway it's at
http://www.clothandclay.co.uk/umra/cookbook.htm

It's got a dusty, cobwebby, BTF¹ look about it, and is in need of some
TLC, but it's both a lovely resource and a memorial to a number of much
missed Umrats.

Would there be any interest, Jane willing, in my picking it up and
reviving it? It would work very well in wiki form I think.

Thanks, Rosie. I really enjoyed browsing through that. A couple don't
work, one of Chris's. 3 frozen Christmas puds!

Don't all shout at once!

I've made my own structured document of it for my own private use. I'd
make it available but as the demand doesn't appear be there I won't, for
now at least.

Can we add to it? I have a cracking recipe for a blue cheese based sauce
which seriously enhances beef or pork.

Since it still exists and Jane still has access to it, I don't see the
need.

I agree with you.

I think there are other considerations too. One is that Jane's site -
which IIRC was completely hand coded - is a classic example of the web
design of the time[1] and doesn't need to be altered or updated. I'd
be reluctant to pave paradise and put up a parking lot.

There's also an issue of intellectual property. In an age where
machines are unthinkingly scraping other people's IP and we are
becoming more aware of it, do we want thinkingly to stoop to the same
level? There are an awful lot of dead or missing umrats represented by
that cookbook and doing the right thing by them would be a near
impossible task.

If anyone wants to start a fresh project with fresh material or even
old material given with consent, that's fine by me but let's cherish
Jane's excellent work for what it is.

Nick
[1]And I feel the same about your site, too, Penny. Hands off that as
well!

Thanks, Nick, but I don't really have any control over my Clarenet/freeuk
sites any more. I'm sorry I deleted so much from the umra site - like Sid
and the Nun.
Their continuing existence is probably down to laziness on somebody's part.

Thanks, Rosie, for reading it and noticing it. There is always a link
to the recipe pages on my sig so anyone can access it at any time.

Thanks, Nick O for noticing that it was written by hand! I still do my
websites that way, more or less, but with the aid of CoffeeCup and using
CSS. Over the years I've had quite a bit of help from Martin with that.

Having said all of that, to be realistic, I would no longer want the
hassle of adding recipes to the site (and rarely have the time/energy to
visit umra). If it's a project Rosie would like to take on, I'd be very
pleased with that. I could leave what I have in place but put a link to
Rosie's new version at the top. How would that be, Rosie?

I am suffering from either post-viral fatigue or long covid if you
believe I could have had covid in April 2019. (I do.) Currently I have
positional labyrinthitis, which is now lasting a long time, not
severely, but bad enough to feed right into the fatigue. Last year was
a year of immense stress - problems with getting building work started
properly on my new house, resulting in more expensive bridging loan;
death of Mike; broken shoulder; two bouts of covid and now the
labyrinthitis. The house *may* be ready early March but very dependent
on weather. Difficulty selling this one.

So Rosie, you'd be doing me a favour, I think.

Me Miss I do miss.

A good friend of the good lady wife was struggling with a continuing and
persistent cough throughout October / November 2019. The good lady wife
was then struck equally badly through November / December 2019. In late
December I had a cough and there was one day in late December when I
felt very unwell. My wife knew I was unwell when I laid down on the
sofa for the day and part of the following day and did not want to do
anything.

So yes I believe it. It was around long before the first cases - but
because no-one can get near a doctor (as far as I can tell there are
none based at our surgery any longer) so the medic network did not get
alerted until Italians started falling off their perches.

Funnily enough, when the world shut down in March 2020, a friend of mine
talked about the medical situation he'd had in November 2019, and it was
exactly like covid. At the time, we talked about how it couldn't have been.
Yet in the last six months, I've talked with a number of other people - now
including you - who believe the same.

I suppose it's worth remembering that the "big" covid was covid-19, so I
suppose it's possible that you had covid-18 or covid-17.

Well, apparently, I had Covid-22 early last year. I felt a little lethargic
for 36 hours and did in fact sit and rest for a few hours (when I say ‘sit
and rest’, often what I do in the circumstances is go and lie down for a
few hours). A few days later a package arrived through the post from the
NHS which I was not expecting… turned out to be Covid test kits - with the
instructions (‘cos I’m classed as an old codger) to use one test that day.
I dutifully followed the directions only to find out I had had Covid! If I
never suffer more than I had then -I’m very lucky!!!

I got a phone call from my surgery last week, a Friday at 5.50pm! Not
a call I'd begged the receptionist for previously, an unexpected one.
She wanted tocheck on me! As an elderly person, at least I think she
knew my age although she knew nothing else on my record, apparently.
She said it was my annual health check. I said I'd never had one
before and she said some people got them and some not. luck of the
drawm criteria met etc. I said B was asthmatic and used to get checked
annually but not for a few years now (we've been here 11)

I asked at some point was she a Dr and she said she was a Dr's
Assistant, but did take GP appointments. I should have asked what
training or qualifications she had, but thought of that later. She
asked about was I disabled, what help I needed, how did I manage meals
and had I had any falls. I said it should be on my record that my last
visit to the surgery, in lockdown, was because I has having falls. She
obviously had not seen my record.

And in that visit I was seen my a Dr who was from A&E Watford,
presumably getting GP experience. He went out to check with, possibly
a regular surgery GP, a couple of times and ordered blood tests, which
led to iron tablets and D12 ones and then I had both cataracts done
and fell less. But I did fall in October 2023 and broke my arm. She
didn't know that, although I got copies of the letters from A&E and
the fracture clinic consultant to the GP surgery so it was on their
record.

She said was there anything else and I said I need more Ibuprofen as
the arm was painful and I needed to up the dose. She said she'd sort
it, but didn't. Next day when I went for my walk I went in to the
surgery as I began to wonder if she really was from them and the
receptionist, who knew nothing, perhaps a Saturday girl? said yes.
They did these checks. B said this is because they get payments for
them not but no longer for asthma ones.
