Truth is so obscure in these times, and falsehood so established, that, unless we love the truth, we cannot know it.


I like Spring best when the skies are blue. York Street, Sandy Bay. September 2011.

I have A-Negative blood type, which puts me in the company of 3.52 percent of the World's population. Apparently, I should be careful when travelling to parts of the world where supplies of RhD negative blood are rare, particularly East Asia, or at the very least carry a suitcase full of my own blood about with me.

Moreover, type A-negative donations are in high demand for red cells, but I've never been stopped in the street and asked for it and have not figured out a way to turn those desirable red cells into hard currency.

Think positively. When in a foreign country you will probably die thus negating the need to carry your own blood group.

Well, well, well....something we have in common (besides Roddy)...I too, am A neg. I know where to go for a transfusion now... if ever I need one (Allah forbid)!!!

Roddy, that's comforting!

Sue, they say that A-negs are the best. I think that they are right...

Hell is when you arrive in heaven without your demons.
Obviously someone had my blood group when I needed it a hundred years ago.
