On the advice of the doc I was advised not to move the old computers etc. to the kerbside for pickup but to engage a commercial contractor to remove the items from the yard.  They promised to come on Friday but turned up yesterday morning.  I now have a clutter free back yard (empty).  They also removed a very very heavy old analogue wide screen TV from upstairs ( I couldn't remotely attempt to lift it) and charged $50 extra for this.  Total cost $350 + $50 for the TV.  ( I have modern LCD TVs both upstairs and downstairs so have no need for cumbersome items ).  The TV was immediately identified as something that a junk mail delivery girl decided her mother might like so the rubbish disposal people said she could have it - which was fine by me - as soon as it passed into their hands it was their property.  They took everything else to the tip.

The council contractors will (or should) turn up on Thursday.  I won't cancel that as there are a few light and outdated things (such as an old Beta format video recorder and an XT computer that probably runs MS-DOS 3.1 if turned on) in the back room cupboard.

I believe the advice was sound advice.  I can't afford to put too much strain on the cardiovascular system and although $400 is quite a bit (but market rate it seems) if it helps keep my cardiovascular system from malfunction it's almost certainly worth it.

I have an ultrasound on Wednesday.

sheramil might be interested in the Betamax recorder.

it was very sensible of you to hire people to haul the heavy rubbish away for you - money well spent. although i'm confident that your ultrasound will be like all the others you've had in the past couple of years, showing no change at all.
