A special day


For the attention of David Wheldonhttps://youtu.be/1a8Fd-6winEG


I knew what it was going to be even before I looked! You know, we could have both met the term David started at Bristol University, but I'm glad we didn't because I was only eleven.  It was a fungus foray near to his Hall of Residence, organised by Bristol Naturalists Society. We only found some Jew's Ears, edible but rather tasteless: my guess is that some other foragers had been there before us.  Maybe it was David and his new University friends, but I doubt it because Burwalls food was so much better than at Sidcot School, apparently...................Sarah

Completed Stratton/Wheldon regime for aggressive secondary progressive MS in June 2007, after four years, three of which intermittent.   Still improving bit by bit and no relapses since finishing treatment.


We have always had a thing for mushrooms, Sarah and I. Hunting shaggy parasols in the park, growing oyster mushrooms, and, most excellent of all, growing shiitake on blocks of wood-shavings. They were really prolific and delicious. The process was fascinating; you could see the mycelium moving inside the block. Still, I’m glad we waited — in 1968 Sarah would have been eleven and I eighteen.

D W - [Myalgia and hypertension (typically 155/95.) Began (2003) taking doxycycline and macrolide and later adding metronidazole. No medication now. Morning BP typically 110/75]

I'm glad everything worked out as it did.  Cool
