Yes, it's been a number of years since I updated this site. Am getting back on the case with a slightly more modern re-design but have temporarily jettisoned some of the content simply becasue I want to get something new up and running sooner rather than later. I'm sure I'll add it all back eventually in some form or another.

I'm not 100% happy with the overall appearance of the main site but it's better than it was and I can adjust things later as required.

I've started off with a few important bits like the Mr Claypole memorial, because, let's face it, everyone loves Mr Claypole. Plus I've added a Star Wars page where I built a gallery for some of my old action figure card backs.

Minor Operations - Cupping

Dry Cupping is performed by throwing a piece of paper dipped into spirit of wine, and ignited, into a wineglass and placing it over the part, such as the neck, temples, etc. It thus draws the flesh into the glass, and causes a determination of blood to the part, which is useful in headache, and many other complaints. This is an excellent method of extracting the poison from the wounds made by adders, mad dogs, fish etc.
