Fascinating read - what a life, and I truly hope all is complete and comfortable for you.

Good morning David
You are very much in my thoughts today for two reasons! First I am attempting a 60 mile bike ride tomorrow bringing back thoughts of the 40 mile ride I did for MND. I didn't do a fundraising page as I thought ittoo soon after the last one but might wait for a 100 mile ride challenge if I get on OK tomorrow. Secondly according to BBC News this marks the week in history of the moon landing in 1969. Maybe we all remember where we were but I watched it in the Cath's JCR. I discovered early on that there was a 'summer term' for which you could get about £300 maintenance grant so I did that twice and thoroughly enjoyed it with no work no lectures and just loving the time in Cambridge. I am thinking you may have left that summer. Sad to think of all the interseting people like yourself I missed meeting by being the only Theologian in College!!
I'll let you know how I get on tomorrow. the Forcast is rain all day!

Have only just learnt your story and been pointed to your website blog. I am remembering a happy day at Lords kindly organised by you for Catz, and your welcome. Your openness in sharing your experiences through this will stand as a model to many I have no doubt. All strength to you.

Dear David,

It was lovely to see you again today on the Cultural Storytelling Zoom meet up. I've just started reading your blog - you write beautifully and have incredible stories to tell (so far I've especially enjoyed the Prince Charles incident - and the exploding beer bottles!) I'm looking forward to reading more, and my husband Marcus (that interloper from the other place) and I are sending you a big virtual hug and lots of love,

Susan xo

Dear David
Very very sorry to hear of this. You have been a great inspiration over the years. Very best wishes and will write more along the way!

Hello David,

Mum (Valerie) has kept me updated over the years and mentioned your blog when I saw her on Sunday.

I’ve just caught up on the daily posts and was so happy to read in your post for 7th July that you still have your Dad’s accordion. As a youngster, I was very privileged that your Dad allowed me to play it when we visited them. I also seem to remember you playing the piano, (Fur Elise?) one time when we visited.

Your blog is wonderful. Honest but not depressing about MND/ALS and the Diginitas option. And (bad English!), also entertaining with those wonderful stories & anecdotes about your fascinating life.

Sending you very best wishes.

Mandy Orchard.

Hello everyone!
This is where you can do your best and your worst. My occasional posts from now on will still have the Comments box at the end, but if there's silence for a few days and if anyone wants to air their grievances or wax lyrical on something else, just type it here into the Guestbook. It might have a life of its own.
Thank you,
