Earth Hour, and more progress

Earth Hour is we are using the resources in twelve months that Mother Earth can renew in eighteen months.

However it can also be fun!!

The Pirate now has his treatment schedule.   One appointment on Wednesday to plant gold seeds for internal triangulation markers.  Then in a fortnight a CT scan and small external triangulation markers.
After that he will be "zapped" for 15 minutes each day, five days a week from  May 5 to June 25.     No more cancer, hopefully, but continuing hormone therapy, with its side  effects.   Just look on Wikipedia.   He has them all, with a vengeance, apart from nausea, thankfully.  Roll on Autumn 2016 and then the slow return to "normality"...hopefully.  Luckily we have a doctor friend who is the same age and just over two years ahead of The Pirate in treatment.  He gives us hope and inspiration.

Some of you may have noticed that my website had disappeared....its back, thankfully.  A spur to get on and update!!

I have been catching up with your blog again, after a little absence. I went through a patch recently where I felt all "blogged out" and was rarely reading any, and finding my own almost impossible to write! Life is full of twists and turns!

Lovely that you have a doctor friend who has been through a similar thing to The Pirate, it must be very helpful, and inspirational, to have someone show the way.

I see that you are a Ubuntu Linux user. I hope you were able to sort out the printer installation. I might be able to give you some help with it, even from this distance, if you are still stuck. I've been running everything on Linux here now for probably about 10 years.
Best Wishes, P

I wish the Pirate well. I've been through a similar regiment and it's no fun but it does work and life goes on afterwards. I send best wishes to you as well. The caregiver deserves blessings too.
I love your photo. Great light!
