Uniform matters

I was watching my favourite drama last night on BBC Three, 'Being Human'. I am a big fan of the acting as well as the star, Aidan Turner. In his role he works in a hospital where the nursing uniforms are of that modern design where nurses, doctors and porters all wear similar garments. The nurses no longer wear those ridiculous starched outfits of the 'carry on' films. Instead they have comfortable tops and trousers that allow them to move and look good.

The actors probably have custom made scrubs, as they do fit particularly well. Each of them wears a different type of nursing scrub uniform as one is a qualified nurse and the other two are porters. I can see why this fashion has spread from the United States to UK hospitals, and i am sure it saves a lot of money on uniform costs.

Car choices

I have always been a fan of straightforward town cars as most of my motoring fits that bill. Something like the Infiniti Qx56 2Wd pretty much suits my needs from day to day. Some years ago I had a rather stylish Saab 9 5, which was a real head turner but pricier on the pocket. Now we are living in a country town and, although our immediate neighbourhood is very urban, we are surrounded by rural lanes. Added to that the fact that many parts of the town flood after any major storm, and my husband's mercedes benz no longer proves to fit the bill. It struggles with snow and ice, and like any saloon car it cannot cope with potholed roads. We are now thinking of changing to a jeep, which will handle everything that you throw at it. Cars like this are also great if you have pets.

There is a growing market in selling tickets to major concerts and events online. Sometimes this means that we, the fans, end up paying more - that last time we looked for George Strait Tickets, for example, they were almost sold out and only the top priced seats were still available. Fans of the major bands are willing to spend a small fortune every year buying Backstreet Boys Tickets, and middle aged followers of the songstress are devoted to getting hold of Celine Dion Tickets whenever she decides to make the effort and earn a few thousand for her talents.

We bought our son a Linkin Park Ticket for his last birthday present, which was far better than a pair of socks! If you want Rascal Flatts Tickets it is a good idea to go to one of the most reputable ticket agencies as there has been an increase in scam sites and sellers popping up with fake tickets. Imagine how you'd feel if you had shelled out all your hard-earned cash only to find the ticketes were worthless. Companies like ACheapSeat offer genuine seats for all major events, with fast secure shipping.
