      Cal, yes thanks a lot, she is out but due to the long wait the burst appendix has creaqted a lot of toxic germs to invade her system so she is still in a lot of pain and somewhat confused witrh the effects the strong antibioctics and pain management tabs are having, so fingers crossed I can keep her as comfortable as i can. At the moment We are somewha confused with the Ambulance service here, but hope fully a email to them will sort it out. It is strange trying to make new friends when you no longer have the luxury of work to integrate ( I suffer from acute short term memory loss so make s me a liability in even the voluntery work place. so you see even using any pc site is a big challenge and takes a long time to get it right, mY Wife and I are big Darts fans and like a game as well, but it seems that social darts over here is non exsistant, Any help on your sites with this.

      Sorry to hear she is still in a lot of pain, certainly is a bumpy ride for you both right now.

      As for darts ,i have just had a quick google and apparantly most states do have Darts leagues etc so i presume alot of places must 'play for fun' too,,, Click on each of these links and see if they throw up anything useful to you, as i agree without working and with no little kids it must be much harder for you to meet people and make friends.

      I do hope these help a little -
