A combination of things in this post, first off looking at my spy software meter contraption I note, that you the reader are wasting too much time, trying to decipher, what I’m on about, according to my info your averaging around three and half minutes ( Sitemeter its 3:30 and Hi stats 4:01)
Life is short, so I’ll briefly mention that the details acquired don’t as far as I know give personally identifiable information although often large companies can be identified so media and news workers beware. (But don’t worry because if the UK government are not already monitoring everything the US probably is).
In the news, the plight of Jade Goody is as sad as its prominent, and disturbingly I see a few aloof journalist and commentators, who’ve taken the opportunity to take a swipe at her, because she is well, fairly ordinary but has had the determination and willpower to make something of her life.
Jade Goody faced with the likely crushing outcome of her illness, has done a remarkable job in providing a future for her family, which ought to earn the respect and admiration of even the most cynical.
One hopes that Jade, will along with anyone in her condition be receiving the best care available. For many a key provider of care and advice for those with terminal illness is either Marie Curie Cancer Care or Macmillan Cancer Support, who as ever need funds.
Fortunately I’ve never been in direct contact with either but one thing I do recall is a Macmillan nurses doing something a doctor couldn’t and that was taking the time to explain the severity of a patients condition, who was then able in the following week to sort out their affairs and more importantly allow friends and family a few final hours together.
That small intervention was years ago but I know it had a significant effect in making the most of the patient’s last few hours, so where this going.
Well times short and I can be verbose, so if your one of the regulars maybe popping in once a week to be enlightened spending 3-4 minutes, over the year, that’s around three hours, longer than any film or football match so maybe you could give a tenner.
