I'm thankful for my health - and I'm very much aware
just how lucky I am when I see some around me - some very
close - who aren't so lucky. These personal issues don't
often make the published material here, out of respect for
those involved (and no lack of caring), but the occasional
article appears here, and more general texts on the subjects
of fitness, health and healthcare.

|A big change in August
We could all look back and say "my life changed that day" to certain days. Some of those days, we know, are going to be lifechanging, others we might guess at ahead of time, and some come as a complete surprise. Such a surpise came to me in that day - those 24 hours - a day in early August. One evening ...
|An update - and my absence in recent weeks
A brief note after a pause ... triggered by a phone call yesterday evening - "are you all right' Graham". Yes - I'm fine ... or fineisn, now.
An apology to those who've missed this blog. The blog has melded into a content flow for the "Well House" sites, with the archive being more read than the ...
|More hazards of modern life
Some article headlines in the paper this morning:
• Is your child's school bag harming their spine?
• Happy Pills can make you more depressed
• My beloved chocolate gave me ulcers and heartburn
• Why did one of these twins have to die before their cough was taken seriously?

|Melksham has a heart - come and see the pictures. Sunday, 11 to 3, Assembly Hall
Melksham has a heart! Earlier this month, I was taking pictures of people hugging each other in Melksham - to show Melksham has a heart, and to support Mel Scott's campaign for community defibrillators. The large montage is now in final checking ... it will be printed today, and it ...
|Birth Notice - Aeryn Cassandra Ellis
To Chris and Delene - in the early hours of this morning, a daughter, Aeryn Cassandra. Baby doing well; this was always going to be a very complicated birth [some background]. I'm delighted to report that mother is doing far better than some of the possible scenarios. She should be well enough to leave ...
|The healthy option - away from the private car
"I used to take the train from school." No - that's a simplification. I walked to the station (Sydenham Hill until the age of 11, Sevenoaks until 17), took my train, then walked a mile home in Petts Wood. Every half hour, the 161A bus connected there with the train (ah those days of proper co-ordination!) ...
|Bowerhill as a cycling community
The field behind out house is muddy - really muddy - at the moment - so I thought I would explore the route down Bowerhill to the Kennet and Avon Canal, which had been rumoured to be blocked a while ago.
I have to say "I'm impressed".
There's been a major improvement to the walkway and cycle way (this ...
|Chronic fatigue help - a new discussion forum
Chronic fatigue is not a condition, but a symptom of a great many things. To reduce and eliminate chronic fatigue, then, you need to correct the underlying causes. What works for one person will, perhaps, leave another all the more tired as there's a real need to treat the condition and not the manifestation. ...
|Look out for the motor cyclist
I visited my son Chris in hospital last night.
He's awaiting an operation, scheduled for today, to put the pieces of one of the bones in his lower leg back together - the registrar came around while I was there and described the operation as being rather like putting a kebab skewer in to gather the ...
