Nursing Times Awards Winner 2007

It will soon be the NT awards again..  The Oscars of Nursing.

I'm glad to have been a winner of one of these awards in 2007 for instigating the first community based service for recurrent malignant pleural effusion drainage in the UK.

Proud moment receiving the 'Innovation in your speciality award'
Prouder though of being able to help so many needy people and make their lives easier,  improving quality whilst managing to save a lot of ££££ A truly QIPP idea...

How many of these services going in UK now? What equipment being used? What are the numbers... Patient episodes saved?

Try your luck in Las Vegas AARP

The AARP CONFERENCE LAS VEGAS has finally arrived....
Lots to learn and share.
Amongst this all,  the chance to get a copy of my first book,  Legally Lucky,  appropriate for the venue.
Legally Lucky
It's a  book about living.  A book about hope and making the best of what we have. Legally Lucky is a story of the 21st century,  materialism is not always the best for anyone.
Multi millionaire status may not equal happiness and that love and freedom are what matters.

It's a bit of fun too....
So make dure to visit Authorhouse between the 31st of May and 1st of June...  That's tomorrow and next day guys.

When you have a copy and read it,  please post a review on my author page.

Congratulations to Gibraltar Football Association

Gibraltar is now team 54 in UEFA.....
Congratulations to us
Well done and looking forward to seeing some pretty impressive matches in the coming years,  no matter how big the other opponents are,  wehhave a great pedigree and hunger to play well.

Phobic wars... Is it becoming true?

BBC News - Cockroaches' sense of taste evolves to beat sugar traps

Cockroaches and I don't get on...
I wrote a book about how Cockroaches were not a good thing and could be a problem...  A little poetic justice in it too,  it's not factual but fiction.  However,  see the attached link and join us who are repelled by them.

Phobic Wars

And inexpensive read that is worth a perusal.

Only a few days until the AARP conference in Las Vegas

Not long now until the AARP conference in Las Vegas, Nevada.
This is your chance to get a copy of my book 'Legally Lucky'.

It's been compared to the likes of' Slum Dog Millionaire' and ' The pursuit of happiness'.. I think it's a moving story that should kick start the reader into pursuing a great life and not chasing financial security only. 
Most of all,  it's a short tale that is a roller coaster ride of the ups and downs of being rich...  I guess!!!

I aspire to many things as well as being financially solvent.  I would certainly not be adverse to having a few millions.

It tells us that it is good to pursue your dreams, hopes and aspirations (incidentally this was the working title). However, it also reminds us not to put our lives on hold and live life in full and savour every moment.

Remember to drop by the Authorhouse stand and ask for your copy.

Enjoy the conference and relax with your copy of Legally Lucky.

Brilliant Cuban Art

This is a great piece of art we picked up in Havant, Cuba.
The picture is hauntingly brilliant and both my wife and I just had to buy it.
Have you got any must share art?

Outstanding storm.. The amazing power of nature

This photo was posted by my cousin Joe on Facebook of a storm in Gibraltar that wrecked a ship off the Europa Point lighthouse...  Wow

Magic stretching arm

I borrowed a jacket off my uncle and did not have one for a formal occasion whilst holidaying in Gibraltar

Kind of him to loan me a very nice woolen jacket,  however arms were a little short for me.

It did the trick but after a little alcohol...  Tried this out!!

Click on the link and enjoy the short video :
Watch "Magic stretching hand" on YouTube

Ode to Sweet Corn

Oh yummy,  crunchy, sweet corn
We met at dinner but one day ago
With a little nob of butter,  you were great I'd have sworn

I enjoyed your flavour, your taste so true.
Every nibble, every chomp and every buttery chew
Then today my tummy did rumble, urgently needing the loo
With a few moments to spare relief and much to my surprise, we met again
I hadn't seen the last of you

Don't forget about My Lulu Author page

I realise I have not put any emphasis on my Lulu Author page since starting this blog.
Lulu allowed me to publish for free however it's then up to me, the author,  to market my wares... 
Phobic wars and Mental Dental (MBP) were published via Lulu.

Here is the link Authors spotlight
I don't have my ebooks available on this site,  just 2 of my paperback books.
I was conversing with my wife this evening about ebooks and paperbacks.
She prefers a good old fashioned paper based read...  The smell,  feel, reflection and real reading experience.

I like paperbacks,  even though the profits are better on electronic versions but it's not all about the money!!

What ever you choose,  enjoy reading and immersing yourself in a world of imagination,  a chance to release yourself into one of my stories and be thrilled

A Garden full of life

After a long and hard winter,  gardening is back on the agenda.

Today whilst reinvigorating our garden Hose,  I found this massive spider living in the hose housing unit..

Great example but scared the bijesus out of me... Me and bugs don't get on too well....  Hence why I wrote Phobic Wars!

I wonder if he is responsible for the winter Web design as attached that we photographed in mid winter?  ..

Blogging Activity

I am relatively new to blogging and think it's brilliant.
I've checked the distribution of visitors and it's refreshing to see the variety of countries that visit. 

The sources are expected a lot of the time.. Google, Facebook, Twitter etc... 
Then there are sights I'd never heard of before...
The link between posts and activity is very succinct...  and immediate.
It's also enjoyable and although I've not had much feedback... (hint hint..,) It's a means of communication with the world. 

I hope to learn more from blogging and hope to connect with you all.
I need some guidance,  am I doing the right thing,  do I need to change my approach,  can I be more targeted?

Blogtastic... :-)

Psychopathic killer dentists.....

Reviews for Mental Dental (MBP)

5.0 out of 5 stars 
Realistic characters

The characters seem so real, its almost like I know them! The writer's best and latest book is excellent. I was scared of dentists before I read this. Now I know they are human too, they make mistakes. Except for that scary dentist in Little Shop of Horrors of course

This review is from: Mental Dental (murder by proxy) (Kindle Edition)
Excellent read! Couldn't put the book down.
Storyline was great, looking forward to the next book!
Very creative writer. Recommend this book to everyone

See the others on my  Author page


30th May - 1st June
For a story that addresses the important things in life and firmly puts the question of financial stability and being rich into perspective.
Legally Lucky
Make sure you visit the Author Solutions Book Gallery which will be located in Booth 2133.
When located,  ask for your own copy of Legally Lucky...  Appropriate for Las Vegas

Enjoy and tell your friends about it

Smudge drawing... A la moda

Pencil drawing of Smudge nearly Andy W style....

Clever Graffiti

Kids in Harlow don't play hopscotch, they do long division on pavements instead...

Why read books?

Why do we read books?
The innate need to seek knowledge and attain information about our immediate surrounding environment ultimately ensures power and safety.

We also read to keep ourselves occupied and entertained. And escape and experience from the otherwise mundane existence in the 21st century.

Fortunately we do not live in the middle of a war torn zone,  Essex is pretty safe really!!! (Once you are able to distinguish the orange camouflage).

Letting the imagination run free is good for the soul. Reading and relaxation...

Fiction does the trick for me.
Crime and cliff hanging finishes absorb me the most,  generating images and keeping me hooked.

My three books are intended to do this...  Rams books

One hopes,  that the aims were attained!!

Keep reading
