I spent until 1pm sorting this blog out. Hopefully it makes more sense now. On James' advice I have emailed university RAG. James was once chair of Sheffield RAG and is certain (as with his other strategies) that this will work. Hunting for their email addresses takes several hours. I should point out that I have taken 42 days off work to dedicate 100% of my time to this project. This strategy is almost working, but I a couple of work commitments in England are coming up in  the next few weeks and so I lost an hour today trying to sort out transport. 

I had every good intention of running, and of remembering to eat lunch (not just sweets) but all has been lost to emails. I am bug eyed I've barely tweeted all day. An effervescent Scotsman posts this blog on reddit, I hope readers will find it useful. In my offline world I have written a letter to my Grandma. I have two Grandmas both in their late 80s, my paternal Grandmother took a computing course aged 82 and can now print her Christmas card list onto labels - more than I can do. My maternal Grandma is still only half willing to have a video recorder in her house, so she and I keep in contact through hand written letters - she's upset if I don't write on letter writing paper, today she'll have to accept the letter written on the back of one of James' physic's papers. She'll also have to accept the delay in postage, I haven't left my desk all day and it's dark outside now. Tomorrow's adventure will be finding the post office.

It's late at night, James has just snuck back to university to kick off some simulations so I've snuck back to work. Loading facebook and twitter I've found people have been working on the project for me in my absence. Two twitter people have great ideas for me, someone on email has put me in contact with someone who could be useful, and my sister-in-common-law has taken my scrappy poster to a pediatrician who is going to copy it and circulate it among colleagues as well as displaying it in the children's therapy outpatient's department! Thank you everyone, you're making the world feel like a very kind place.
