  • Blog Post: There's a Vibe ... and there are clinical trials and the wonders of 'backing up and restoring ...'

    I was going to preface this blog post by saying ‘I am a ‘Carer’ and my husband’s prognosis is very bleak indeed …’ However, I have several problems with that. One is that the term ‘carer’ is not a term which fits me well because it suggests a stage...
  • Blog Post: There is a Vibe in this Tart!

    Things are definitely looking up at Cold Comfort Cottage. The snow is melting. The oil and logs have been delivered.

    Here are two cancer stories for today - one from Argentina and one from Scotland. I warn you now, this blog is not for those who are in need of cheering up. I heard today that my sister's very good friend in Argentina, who has been living with cancer for ten years, has her kidney transplant...
