There were a significant number against 'desk' (4 voice concerns over 
One is still against 'amenity'.
Difficult to make out what some concerns are about or to make out a

The wording of the wiki changes over time as wiki edits take placed. 
Most of this activity is 'polishing' - small changes to improve the 
meaning and/or comprehension. I'm not too worried about this, as long as 
the basic intention remains.

Nice idea ... but I have started down this path so will continue. It 
would have been usefull for blood donations too. And temperature would 
certainly benefit for such a change.
