Me looking brave before taking to the air (and the wing) of the plane. Wow, it was cold !! But the whole experience was totally exhilarating.

Jan's Blog

Computers and the internet are amazing things. One of my concerns with putting together this site was that it could remain current, yet with all my travelling I've often much to say, but little time to say it. Years ago when reading the news it would take me days on end to reply to the kind letters people sent. Now, with the magic of the modern age, I can keep you up to date with what I'm doing and other events in my life.


Date: 10th July 2008

Good news.  The incredibly brilliant young man, who constructed my website, is going to enter some Cheetah and Cheetah cub Video clips taken in South Africa.  So they should be on the Website within the next week.

More Good News.  The Orchid Web Site hits shot up on Tuesday and Wednesday after Cash in The Attic and I've been told I had 600 hits.  This is marvellous.  These days, so many cancers can be cured if they are diagnosed in time.  We women are far better at admitting something is wrong and going to the Doctor.  You chaps are strangely reluctant to discuss your 'bits below the belt'.  It is far better to be safe than sorry.  I read in yesterday's paper the terribly sad case of a man who ignored a large mole on his back despite his wife begging him to go to the Doctor.  When he finally did pay a visit, it was too late.  He had a particularly aggressive melanoma (Skin Cancer) and the cells had spread all over his body.  Had he gone in time, he would probably still be with his wife and children.

So please Chaps - do check yourselves.  Jonathan was 23 when he discovered his Testicular cancer and I was horrified to learn that so many young boys and men are afflicted by the condition.  Cancers are so much more aggressive in the young.  In the period of time that Jonathan was forced to wait for a scan (because the Doctor thought it was just a fatty cyst) his cancer had metastazised and he had two growths with sedimentation for a third.

I don't think any Doctor should take chances if there is a possibility of Cancer.  I'm glad to say that Doctor was struck off the Medical Register - not for his misdiagnosis of Jonathan but for other improprieties.

Anyway, enough of sad things.  I've ordered the Diaries of Rene Mouchotte (the pilot whose name I sponsored for the Battle of Britain Memorial Wall) and can't wait to receive the book.

Bye for now,  Jan
