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.

I asked my brother to please straighten the carpet under my computer desk. 24 hrs. later neither of us could figure out why the internet somehow disconnected during the carpet adjustment. Telus said we needed a new ADSL Modem. However, both of us demonstrated our stubborn streak and refused to wait 5 days for Telus to ship a new D-Link. After a zillion tries we finally got it up and running. There seems to be a problem with one of the connectors. So-o-o after coming close to making it disappear I'm not touching anything and happy to be back online.
