  • Thanks Dan & Amallia... just an age .... don't feel much older when u have 2 walking sticks already haha

  • Hey Andy, is there an event of any sort for awareness day to attend? Otherwise I'm just thinking we should take you for a beer (that's an Australian saying for any event, you don't actually have to drink beer, it's like throwing a scrimp on the barbecue' it just means a get together) ๐Ÿ˜Š

  • Haha well unless you live in Scotland a beer cud be difficult ๐Ÿ˜‰

    For the awareness day we are having an art auction and also a couple other events online to raise awareness... great thing about internet makes it accessible no matter time zone and how we are feeling. Will get more info out next few days... great team of folks working behind the scenes from Australia, holland, U.K. And America to see things take place :)

  • I'm in Edinburgh buddy. And can make it to Glasgow on the odd occasion ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Ah nice! Well we shall def need to do a fnd Scotland event sometime!

  • I'm on board with that! ๐Ÿ˜Š I'm in South Lanarkshire ๐Ÿ‘

  • Sounds good. No one messes with the Scots. No offence to other nations ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—

  • Very true! I'm actually through in Edinburgh a lot , well I was for 6 nations as got season pass.. I'm in Falkirk so it's easy enough on train and with mobility scooter :) have friends there too so it's doable. Will get awareness day out the way and try arrange something with others in Edinburgh for a coffee somewhere accessible :) speak soon


  • Amallia.

    The Scots took very good care of me years ago when I traveled on business. Never went without.

    Being a good Southerner, I will compete to throw the BbQ if you guys come over here. We call it having a mess of food and drink. In proper terms, some would say wow, what a spread! We never let you leave hungry or thirsty.

    Sadly, I donated my five foot long charcoal grill as I got too weak to manage it. No more wood fired smokers either. Ah, but those were the days. Miss the good food. Flavors just not the same....

  • Yeah all about the flavours indeed!

  • An old boss of mine overseas said he had the worst hangover of his life in Edinburgh so I'm glad to hear you had a better experience. When we couldn't be bothered with a barbecue my friend would get out the crackers and cheese (and beers) and he had uprooted a chilli plant or several so they grew along one whole side of his garden. We would just pick them off and eat them with crackers. Oh how I miss my chilli plants ๐ŸŒถ
