  • some more information is now available

  • about time very good news

  • About time too- carry on, at this rate, and maybe some of these diseases may not be too 'rare' any more! Watch this space, so to speak!

    I confess that I haven't read all the 'links' referred to here- the usual excuse, I'm afraid, too much else to do! I will try to keep 'up to date', as far as I can, promise!

    Hope everyone is keeping 'well' (ok you can all stop laughing now, sorry!!)

    Kind regards
