Glad to hear some improvement, Dove. Try a sip of room temperature coke or coke syrup, or warm ginger tea. Ginger is is a great tummy settler. I would make it for you, but have no way to get it to you.

Persevere Dove. Keep getting all the fluids you can into you. Dehydration only makes you worse.
I know throwing up isn't pleasant, but you need to get those fluids into you anyway you can, otherwise it'll be hospital and a tube in your arm.

ginger ale is always good and will work quite well, especially at room temperature. Do not understand the room temperature thing, but for some reason it works better than when icy.

Like you Wifey, sittin' here at the box catching up on heaps, waiting for DW to return from another shopping expedition, watching the weather close in. Was & still hopeful of going for a fly this afternoon (200 mile round trip)(1147 am).

. :roll: :roll:

Do you own your own plane? How neat!
Hubby really wants to learn to fly hilocopters.
I think I'll keep him safe on the ground with me.

Yes, we own our little plane. It's only a small two seater, but we bang along at between 100 & 120 knots. Really cool. 8) 8) Very cheap to run aerobatically stressed, although I don't do aero's, or don't mean to. Took a lot to learn to fly with my 'gammy' legs. A real challenge but I did it. :)

Not too bad a pilot either but still got under 200hrs under my belt.

Flying a helicopter is like balancing a pumpkin on a pea. Not impossible but close to it. We have a couple of chopper pilots locally and they are a 'snooty' lot.

We have the edge on fuel consumption as well. We use on avergae 12 litres an hour or down to 10 or up to 20, depending what we are doing. The best a chopper can do is about 60 lph & their glide on engine failure is horrendous (like a stone). Ours has a 16:1 glide ratio, for every 1,000 feet down we travel 16,000ft along (forward) so it is quite safe. Plenty of time to find a safe landing area. Had to do it once but that was an electrical fault, not a mechanical fault. We had plenty of time to glide to an airstrip with staff on standby just in case. Scary but cool.
