The Wishing Book 2 - Return to Mars (Book) - 1/9/2010 1:06:50 PM|
I haven't been disappointed by Grahame Howard's 2nd Wishing Book, infact I couldn't put it down. It is an exciting, full of adventure story that kept me intrigued right to the end, following the hair- raising experiences of John,Penny,Jimmy & Aaron and Pedro Armaz with The Wishing Book on the planet Mars. What happens? Who can they trust? I recommend it for young and old alike, 'tis good!

Another good read by Grahame Howard, the first in a series of books for children, 'The Wishing Book' kept my grand-daughter enthralled from beginning to end. It captures the imagination of young and old alike with adventure and suspense, following the story of four children and The Wishing Book on Earth and the planet Mars - with so many twists and turns who can the children trust?
'The Wishing Book 2 - Return to Mars' has now been released and they are both a great read.
It's in the Bag (Book) - 1/9/2010 12:09:09 PM
This is a very good practical resource book for anyone about to undergo surgery for or living with a stoma. It is written from the author's own experience and discusses the pro's and con's of the 'how,what,and where,'of everyday life as an ostomist. The inevitable emotional aspects and how a person can cope with the uncertainties; where one gets help and advice; how to gain supplies; the pro's and con's of different types of bags and underwear; the best toilet arrangements and how to cope with the worst; suggestions for travel arrangements, and much much more. It is all there, sensitively written, everything an ostomist needs to know but might find difficulty finding out about 'first hand'. This new release compliments the author's already published book 'All Bagged Up' and should not be missed by those seeking more information.
Coping with the Changes (Article) - 1/2/2010 12:58:04 AM
I found this an interesting article because it affects people in so many different ways; when I look back over my life so far it has been a series of 'change', from school to college to career to retirement. Each phase being sprinkled with their own smaller 'changes'. Sometimes we create 'change' by choice, eg. decide to move house, change our car or choose a different place to holiday. Other times 'change' is forced upon us, eg. through redundancy, health problems or bereavement; these changes are the most difficult, they take us out of our comfort zone and make us want to run away because we may not want to face up to them. But we really can't stop 'change' and I have found the only way forward is not to give up but reach out and embrace it, 'change' can enrich a persons' life in the long run if you let it.
Coping with Embarrassment (Article) - 12/6/2009 6:24:15 AM
I have shared my life with a UC sufferer for many years, sharing the indignities and embarrassing accidents that this illness can cause. So as a carer I relate to this article, it is very easy to feel so embarrassed that you'd rather the ground opened up than talk to someone else about the problem,even family. It can control ones way of life if you let it, I think I have a mental map of all the loos in
our local area! For those that this affects I recommend you talk to the author and read his book 'All Bagged Up', it will help you.
Coping with Embarrassment (Article) - 12/5/2009 5:09:02 AM
I can relate; I have a colostomy. Embarrassing yes, but I am managing quite well, given the circumstances. NOT cancer, praise the Lord, but a large tumor pinched off my colon; hence, the colostomy. Great write; you may have saved some lives here! :)

Jesus....we could spend all our time writing about Him, and never have begun to tell the story. I like your poem and all that it implies. God bless you as you walk with Him!
