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.

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.
