Dr Who-oo (hey!)

I've just watched the first episode of the new series of Dr Who (either the 29th or the 3rd, depending on who you ask), and I enjoyed it; I thought it was a fun episode, with interesting characters, and bodes well for future episodes. There was only one huge flaw in it, which I'm willing to overlook.

Poll #957748 Travelling in the TARDIS

If you were offered the chance to drop everything and go off in the TARDIS, right this minute, would you go?

No way, hose!

First aid

I was out on SJA duty this afternoon at Selhurst (Crystal Palace vs Sheffield Wednesday). It was fairly quiet from a first aid perspective, but it was also surprisingly cold/windy. Bearing that in mind, I was surprised to see one of the away fans with nothing on from the waist up; apparently he's been doing this for quite a long time. Personally, I was wearing a shirt, jumper, coat, hat, and gloves, and I was still a bit chilly, so I'm surprised that he wasn't freezing to death. This may be a case where a heavy build is beneficial...

Meanwhile, we've been doing a lot of CPR practice at class nights recently, and I've been thinking about a couple of personal anecdotes which expand on the standard advice from the first aid manual.
