Thanks again for the NHS at Aberdeen ARI after we are so lucky to have such a service. Lecture Biking by numbers at Findhorn tonight!

I am just back from Aberdeen ARI after my 3rd operation, it is going to be a long slow painful process and this morning I feel like groundhog day.The effects of the anesthesia has worn off and so I had little sleep last night. I will still have a drain in my backside (sorry for being so graphic)  and that restricts many things but it does make you think of life’s priorities.   We are so lucky that have such a service that many still envy with the NHS for all regardless of your status . We can get free pain relief and great care despite the huge pressure put on the NHS I never take it for granted. It would be great if the Politicians joined together as a non political working group to get policies sorted that will save this incredible service, instead of arguing about nonsense?  Imagine that using a collective of all parties working for the good of the country not their party or pockets!  It is crazy that a petition about Clarkson can get a million signatures after his latest escapades what have we come to? Gosh I am a grumpy old sod!

My lovely Grand-kids arrive for Easter soon and are living in Hopeman that will cheer me up love them dearly!

Al GILMOUR LECTURE TONIGHT AT FINDHORN TICKETS AT DOOR

bIKING BY NUMBERS

As the temperature starts to rise, and the days begin to get longer, you’re probably slowly crawling out of hibernation mode and are contemplating adventures in the outdoors again! The teams at Lossiemouth-based, outdoor education charity, Outfit Moray, and Windswept Brewing, have just the thing to help inspire your adventures – The Spirit of Adventure Talk series.

bIKING BY NUMBERS 2

Come along and have a bite to eat and grab a beer from the Windswept Bar, then settle down to hear from an adventurer who really has been there and done that. They may even have the T-shirt!

Second on the bill (following David ‘Heavy’ Whalley on 27th February) is Mountain Biking expert, and Glenmore Lodge’s Head of Mountain Biking, Al Gilmour. Al loves getting out on his bike, especially heading into the hills on longer distance trips and has biked all over the world! One of his greatest achievements is biking 2,768 miles from Banff, Canada to the Mexican Border. Hear all about this trip along the Great Divide – a route that’s got over 200,000 feet of elevation gain and includes some climbs starting at 8,000ft in the Colorado Rockies – as well as some top tips on ‘Biking by Numbers’.

All proceeds from this event will go to Outfit Moray (Registered Charity SC037127), a local outdoor education charity which changes lives through outdoor learning and adventure, particularly the lives of vulnerable and disadvantaged young people and their families. Outfit Moray uses a holistic approach to develop potential, building self-confidence, growing self-esteem, encouraging life skills and improving health. They encourage risk awareness and positive risk taking, teamwork, leadership and a selfless approach to others. Outfit Moray aims to increase happiness, improve well-being, encourage resourcefulness and create a sense of purpose in life.

  1. Never a truer word said about the NHS Heavy. If only the politicians could work together rather than put the country into disarray. Take care mate.

  2. I am sorry to hear that you required a third surgery. I hope that you have a speedy recovery. I wish you and your family a Happy Easter. You have two beautiful grandkids.
