Welcome to my blog. I have had ALS for 10 years now.

Since I started this blog in June 2008 I've had amazing feedback. Family, friends, people from all over North America, Australia, Scotland, England, and places I can't recall, have commented, encouraged and corresponded. I had no idea when Cynthia taught me how to set this up, how much I would love posting and how many people would read it. I want to say THANK YOU to everyone who has helped propel this therapeutic exercise into a daily routine. All of you, both friends and visitors, are now part of my blog family. Welcome.

In memory

I am sad to tell you that my ALS pen pal from Victoria passed away December 23rd. Cathy was a fighter and a great help to me on my ALS journey.
Photos of her beautiful Oak Bay garden brought me joy every Spring.
My condolences to her sons, loved ones, friends and PLM family who will all miss her strong presence and sense of humour.
ALS continues to take good people. Over 1000 Canadians die every year from ALS. WE NEED TO FIND A CURE.
