I remember your lovely car Phil and how much you were enjoying it, it was actually a part of me deciding to go down an engine size (I have worked my way through a T16 +4, a 4.0 GEMS+8, 2 Duratec 2.0 ltrs and now a Sigma 1.6), that sounds like it was a conscious decision where the truth is, as if often the case, the car chose me ;-).

When I was working I spent a lot of time in Cancer Diagnostics.

We got a lot of "frequent fliers" that were several years post treatment. It seemed to me that those that had a very positive view on life did better than those that were more dispondant about their prognosis.

One memorable person who was ten years after his bowel cancer treatment used to say " I look in the deaths column every week in the local newspaper, and if my name is not in it I figure I am winning"

I think he was correct in his view and those that take a positive view do better.

Get back into a Morgan and enjoy every moment, it can only be beneficial.

Colin,

great to see you back: I'd wondered why you disappeared. Fantastic to see you are back Morganeering!

Life is a terminal condition, the trick to lasting as long as possible is to take each day and enjoy it to the maximum.
Our neighbour across the road has just turned 89: a month ago she had a tumour removed from her upper bowl. At 88 they told her chemo wasn't a good idea as from the biopsy the tumour was very slow growing and was unlikely to return inside 5 years. Her attitude was that the cancer changed nothing, so carry on enjoying life. Last Thursday she took a taxi into town ,went to the hair dresser and then walked over to Cote for lunch, before going shopping at M&S and a taxi home.

Must be your best news ever, well done, trust you'll be having the remote king pin greasing kit and making them last forever!

The car has already had the remote grease kit fitted, that will sure help with my mobility issues (getting up and down off the floor is a struggle) I need to rig up a camera to monitor grease getting everywhere. I don’t know yet what the pins are, I understand Williams fitted the Suplex kit (that will be reverted back to OE at some stage as I am not a fan of the ‘feel’ but I need to test and see if the pins are Hardchrome or Stainless, if the latter is a full front rebuild next winter if it has HC pins I would just change the springs etc and pop a pair of Mulfab steering bearings in at the same time. No rush and this is all probably a next autumn job anyway.
