I'm back just in time for my MS Walk

Hello, hello, hello!!!!!

I'm back!

It has been a very long week without my computer. Yes, I know, anti-techie me, I really said that. I never realized how much I depended on my pooter until I didn't have it any more.

I was unable to review books on Readers Favorite. 

I couldn't address emails properly.

I couldn't write this blog and I really, really missed that.

I couldn't play my Facebook games or look up ridiculous trivia for which I only care.

We spent a week in hospital undergoing many ridiculously painful tests and procedures before returning home for him to be home schooled until the New Year. In between all this mess, several disappointing events occur that …

Author Barbara Stenslandin the UK tells us that they recognize the week of April 22-28 as MS Awareness Week. (Missed her interview? See March 20 post.)

After contacting some folks in Ireland, I am led to believe that their fund raising remains publicity active year round. Good for them.                                           

Want to know what's going on around the world with MS? It isn't that difficult to find out if you're not intimated by social media.
