MEMO TO ALL CUSTOMERS...
In courtesy to other customers, if you phone and wish to leave a message over the weekend or early Monday morning, please do so. Our office start time on a Monday is 9am and we will return all messages. Please avoid repeatedly calling and hanging up. Hanging up uses up space on our telephone memory and means that other people aren't able to leave messages.
THE SHIEL PHYSIO TEAMS IS GROWING!

CRAIG'S JOKE OF THE MONTH
An art connoisseur passed a little grocery in New York when he noticed a kitten on the front step lapping up some milk in a bowl. The cat was mangy with one ear half chewed off and clumps of fur missing. What really caught the collector’s eye was the bowl the kitten was drinking from. It was a rare antique worth thousands. He walks in the store and offers $20.00 for the cat. "He's not for sale" says the store owner. "That's ridiculous!" says the collector. "He is one of the ugliest cats I've seen. He must be for sale. I'll give you $100.00 for him." The store owner thought for a second and said "It's a deal." The connoisseur hands the store owner the money, which he quickly pockets, and as he starts out the store asks "For that price I'm sure you won’t mind sending that old bowl with him. He seems so happy drinking from it." The store owner says “No way. That's my lucky bowl. From that bowl I've sold 26 cats this week!"
