I agree Mrs B. That's such an insult

Comment was by Mrs.B on November 4, 2020 at 3:17am

Such an insult to that surgeon!

Comment was by Joan Denoo on November 4, 2020 at 3:09am

Steven, a fascinating video of Henry 5 arrowhead removal. "Praise be to god" strikes me as foolish, especially when doctors, nurses, lab workers, and even the janitor contributes to the grasping of life from death's door and nary an expression of gratitude to those who perform well under pressure. 

Comment was by Stephen Brodie on November 3, 2020 at 8:02pm

I was taught this story in school but I couldn't then have imagined how it was done. But it made me giggle that as the arrowhead was extracted from the Kings face the priests and courtiers all shouted praise be to god, forgetting the brilliant surgeon John Bradmore who really saved the Kings life.

A beautiful old video, Stephen!

Comment was by Stephen Brodie on October 22, 2020 at 8:25pm

I only knew about him from other narrowboat YouTubers  

Comment was by Mrs.B on October 22, 2020 at 7:34pm

Yes, but his move isn't permanent as far as I understand. He's back home here on Vancouver Island recovering from injury & avoiding the Brit virus situation.

Comment was by Stephen Brodie on October 22, 2020 at 7:28pm

Yeah, I've been watching him as well. The idea of giving up living in a house and moving permanently onto a narrowboat intrigues me no end. His Vlogs are a little bit short for my liking.

My favs are the  Well Deck Diaries and Floating Our Boat but the best is Foxes Afloat

Comment was by Mrs.B on October 22, 2020 at 5:07pm

Interesting to watch. 

I'm following Canuck On The Cut on Wordpress, & Twitter. He has a long boat & travels the Brit canals, seasonally, but he's from right here in BC..
