A bright morning...



A morning view not displayed that often before, as far as I can recall..

I have been on e-bay recently for the first time in a while and I have succumbed to “stuff”...

A new jukebox (my 5th) is on its way, the cheapest thus far at "just“ £22 for 30GBs - a re-organisation of my music is beckoning...

A 10CD box set of late period Tangerine Dream which is likely to be full of cheesy pish is also on its way...

And, today, two further packages are being readied – one containing a disc of violin sonatas by Italian contemporary of Mr Mozart, Mr Viotti (never heard of him before today) and one containing Peter Gabriel’s “Ovo” – of which I have a “burn” in the big pile awaiting switch into plastic sleeves...

This evening this task started - here is a demonstration of the space saved by the first 56 albums (A-C in the “rock & pop” category)...



On TV, A new series, “Silk”, impressed and was followed by a good episode of “CSI” on the Tivo box...

Meanwhile Queens came from behind to lead bottom of the league Stirling Albion 2-1 at home, only to lose a goal with two minutes to go...

Finally, what news of sister Pam?

Well, she received confirmation tonight that she will be discharged tomorrow...

Her antibiotics treatment is complete and the neurosurgery team are happy with her condition...

She had a fresh MRI scan carried out this morning re her upcoming radiotherapy, along with a new mask re the treatment...

A new treatment plan has also been carried out and Pam starts concurrent Radiotherapy and Chemotherapy on Monday 7 March at 1pm - she has opted for afternoon sessions...

Anne and I will visit soon...

So, from tomorrow night, Pam will be back in her own home at last...

A big thank you to everyone who has sent their best wishes over the last three months, she needs our support too over the months to come...

Highlight of the Day : Pam’s release confirmed...

"cheesy pish" made me guffaw out loud and narrowly avoided a mouthful of tea being sprayed over my iMac.

GREAT news about Pam! Very pleased to hear it.

LOL - I laughed too when I read it back post your comment - I didn't realise at the time it was funny - but it's probably going to be true - which makes it even funnier...

I will pass on your best wishes to Pam...

Cheers

Hello MR CBQ

Yes, I daresay you will be correct regarding the PISH.

Great to hear the latest about Pam.

Cheers

Hi Ryan - not long now till I find out...

Thanks for your kind thoughts re Pam - I have spoken to her tonight and she's glad to be home but understandably apprehensive about what comes next...

Cheers
