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.

Go Canada Go!

This is 2 seconds of the fireworks at the Waterfront(Canada Place) last night. When Wayne Gretzky lit the final flame, the fireworks rose high over the city skyscrapers. I managed to get a few shots.
Both my hands are unsteady now, so I use a tripod whenever I can. If I want a special photo and I can't use the tripod, my Care Worker or a friend is my photographer. Some days I'm steady and can do my own, but I fatigue easily and find it difficult to hold the camera in a raised position.
I hope to have a platform for my camera on my new chair. However, the chair has gone back again for another fitting. Woe is me.
