Mum went to see her Consultant this week (Tuesday) and he was pretty pleased with her progress. She's looking so much better than when he last saw her. The cancer in her Spine and Liver has not got any better these past couple of months- without treatment- but neither has it got any worse.

He's ordered a scan for her Spine for next week and an MRI on her Liver for the week after. They have agreed to restart chemo treatment in the New Year.

Got This Problem?

I've just watched the early evening news and they showed images of some dead people.

Now I enjoy watching action films and the like, where (obviously) actors pretend to die but I have a real issue with seeing pictures of real live, sorry, dead people. I know death and murder goes on far more than maybe I choose to believe but I find it distasteful and lacking respect. Do we have to see this sort of thing with our dinner? Is it because we are no longer easily shocked that we accept such images?

Maybe I'm the only one that thinks this way..?

Movie Weekend

Went to see the Meryl Streep, Tom Cruise and Robert Redford starring flick, Lions for Lambs.

Great, strong cast and three powerful interlinked stories. Trouble is, I can't for the life of me work out the moral of this one- war is bad? war is sometimes necessary? it's good to be patriotic and die fighting terrorism? politicians only look after themselves? I just don't know- I must be missing something. Or perhaps the film makers have deliberately left it ambiguous...

Also yesterday I watched the DVD of Mel Gibson's Apocalypto. What a great film! I don't normally go a bundle for films with subtitles but this one worked for me. Quite graphic and bloody in places but well worth watching.

Just don't mention the Rozzers. I think they were bored Satuday night- two cars and four pc's. 'Nuff said. LOL

Nutrition and Health

We keep being told the UK has one of the highest levels of Heart Disease and that we must change our diet.

This is just a bit of fun but made me think maybe we need to change our ways not our diet...

1. Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.

2. Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.

3. Chinese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.

4. Italians drink excessive amounts of red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.

5. Germans drink beer and eat lots of sausages and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.

CONCLUSION: Eat and drink what you like.

Speaking English is apparently what kills you.

Mix together and serve on its own, as a filling for a sandwich with wholemeal bread or as a topping to a baked jacket Potato.

11th November

For all the members of our Armed Services who gave their lives in conflicts across the world.

We remember.

Disney Fact

This morning I spent a brief few moments in bed reading the manual for my recently acquired Disney branded MP3 player.

Apparently the noise from a Rocket launch pad has been measured at around 180 Decibels and constant exposure to this can be dangerous.

I'd better be careful then.

New Office

Some of you might know (or be interested to know) that we moved office last weekend. So far we have had one week of barely controlled chaos but things look to be settling down. Or atleast should do next week.

This is the view from one of my windows. Yeah, that's right: Windows, plural! Doesn't look bad does it? For those with good eyesight, those really are horses. LOL
