Retro Edition – Fist Full of Posts

Hi readers. This week I continue with my theme for MND Awareness Month and take both a retrospective and future look at living with MND. So in this early week post, let us go back to the past before coming forward to the present date with my first guest blog announcement that is focused on…

Not a cloud in the sky, got the sun in my eyes……

“And I won’t be surprised if it’s a dream….” Yes, the immortal words of Karen Carpenter. We visited the Top of the World last week. Well, certainly the top of North Wales. It’s now a regular trip for us. A seven hour drive that always seems to flow by knowing what beautiful scenery we are…

Weapon of Choice?

A nice mysterious title for a research opinion post? Read on, my intrigued and loyal followers….

An introduction to my weekly MND blog for newcomers

It has now been nearly 2 years since I started my blog. I am now a serious MND blogger! I have Motor Neurone Disease (MND/ALS), and I started this blog to have fun, yes fun. It is about my living with MND, but with an absolute splash of humour. I am very analytical, and of…

A view to a thrill!

“Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends come inside, come inside!” Lots of music references this week as it is sunny (well it was) and listening to tunes is fab! You can play along and spot the songs/artists. The picture on the front of today’s post is of Meldon Dam in Devon….

A brief history of the past 2 weeks

His genius will enable new technological discoveries and facilitate taking humankind into the future. His ashes will be interned in Westminster Abbey alongside those of Sir Issac Newton, Charles Darwin and…

One thing leads to another – MND Research Opinion update – March 2018

I have just realised that I haven’t written a onein400 research opinion post for over 6 months! Apologies, readers. Let me correct this right now! This one is split into two distinct sections.
