Pleasant Friday Afternoon.
Despite a good nights sleep still very sleepy today, it has been quite sunny today and Richie tells me it is warm in the sun with a cold wind.
Just after we woke Richie did the leg exercises and massaged my legs which was very pleasant, especially afterwards.
After taking the morning baclofen and washing face and brushing teeth I was ready for the day.
Richie switched on the radio and we heard about Alan Turing the man who had cracked the German code during the 2nd World War.
He was arrested and subjected to interogation and put on trial and sentenced to either prison or chemical castration.
He chose chemical castration and he committed suicide two years later at the age of 41.
We were both incredulous about this, how could this brilliant man, who literally saved so many people by cracking the code be treated like that.
How indeed could anyone be treated like that, it is despicable that people should be discriminated against because of their sex or the colour of their skin.
Was too upset to write my post so instead posted newspaper articles here and on my Dutch blog.
After I posted Gareth Skyped me and we chatted for quite awhile, which was very pleasant.
When we said goodbye there was another Skype call from another friend Jeanet, a pleasant surprise, thought it was Gareth again.
In this very pleasant way the afternoon went by amd it is now early evening, can smell stew and dumplings we will be having for dinner soon.
Have a great time.
