Post One Thousand. Hardly a day for celebration.

Had news from the Gosford Hospital NSW Aus. that a search within my interior will be carried out on Aug 1 following my recent treatment. At this point in time I am feeling quite OK and what I consider normal,(no remarks please). However the timing of this visit will put the lid on any possibility of visiting that sceptered isle set in a silver sea where summer will arrive on a Thursday possibly in July. Unlike yesterday in fact the opposite weather pattern has hit us hard today, tiddling down and cold with complete cloud cover, really unpleasant.I feel like nodding off while writing this. The new Telephone white and yellow pages for the Central Coast arrived today plus a smaller version of the yellow pages with local maps for the car, mainly for those people with mobile phones and without the new sat nav technology. Map 1 shows how to get to Gosford hospital which would be essential for those attempting the journey for the first time. Gosford is s huge Car Park on the central coast and

Unlike most of the local inhabitants who were descendants of Whores and thieves from a century back, we were here to improve the bloodstock of this country of beer swilling boofheads. We had previously sold our house in Portsmouth England and were not about to bludge on the public purse. Arriving at the Amp office a large overweight suit cracked off with the opening words of his interview. "Mr B, Ah you are the new Pommy from the OLD DART is that correct"? "No" I replied, "You have your wires crossed somewhere, and what is a Pommy and where is the old Dart. Regardless of the nastiness in the interview I got the job as a legger at the Enfield office which lasted a year before I went into business. Nevertheless the Pommy and old dart cliches had me thinking and despite the numerous suggestions 'Why Pommy

Will your exercise kill you?

Back in my twenty plus years it seemed I had boundless energy. While serving ashore while still in the RN, I was able to ride my 'Claude Butler' Racing Bicycle from Portsmouth to London and beyond and return over a weekend, my best achievement was approx 360 Miles in 76 Hours starting at 4-15 am Fri to 9 am Monday. Nowadays or fifty years later half a dozen trips up and down the stairs a walk in the garden daily plus a weekly canter around the the supermarket keeps me reasonably fit. also I can nearly reach my toes standing.

Activities such as marathons, Iron man triathlons and very long bicycle races may cause structural changes to the heart and large arteries. So it seems exercise is generally beneficial but could tip the scales when used to excess. How do you ac
