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.

Excellence in Engineering

I'm so proud of these UBC engineering students who won first prize for their eReader project. It was my privilege to meet four wonderful people who carefully listened to my needs and developed an eReader with a stand that I can use and enjoy. As an ALS patient who is gradually losing my ability to do "normal" activities, I welcome any device that enhances my lifestyle. Now I can read a book with the click of a mouse while relaxing in my power chair.
