What happens when a Royal Navy warship sees a NATO task force headed straight for it? A crash course in Morse

A month after retiring early - feeling very healthy - it was disconcerting to be enrolled by my doctor into the "pill popping" club.

The small print about side-effects of any medication seems to be an exercise in pre-emptive legal damage limitation. Never mind whether you might also be allergic to "harmless" substances used to bulk and coat the pill.

On the now routine annual check-up it is interesting that the doctor would look at my blood test reports and say of a medication "yes - you are tolerating this well".
