Have a Fantastic Festive Season!

I am not gong to write a tale of woe, or of rights and equality, or even of positivity and justice. No, it's Christmas time, and so I just want to wish everyone out there in Huffington Land a wonderful festive season and here's to an amazing 2015!


For me 2015 will be a big one. I hit the ripe old age of fifty in August. This is a milestone I never thought I'd reach. I was given a life expectancy of no more than five years at birth after being diagnosed with Neuroblastoma, a rare form of childhood cancer, and I am sure you can see why reaching fifty is such a big deal. To have out lived all expectations by so much, and to still be hail and healthy is an Xmas gift unrivaled by any other. This year I am planning to spend the build up to my birthday doing all manner of things I have always wanted to do but just never found the time. However once I hit the big 5 0 I am not planning to stop. I want to make my fiftieth year one that is one I never forget. More details of these as they unfold next year.

Anyway, both my wonderful wife Diane and me wish you all a wonderful, enjoyable festive season and hope you all see in 2015 in style. See you all on the other side!
