JULY 2014

Hello Friend,

Not a great deal happening at the moment. The prison band collective are already preparing for the Christmas concert.   I also help out on the guitar classes and I am writing a course on different strumming techniques.

Over the past few months there has been a high-profile campaign to reinstate steel guitar strings as an allowable possession for prisoners.  I have written an article on this in a new section called PRISON LIFE.

It has also been suggested to me, by my friend and designer of this site,that I post some more of my more creative pursuits.  This would include poetry, artwork and songs.  I am hopeful that we can start work on this over the next couple of months.

Finally, I saw a cardiologist for a check-up.  My stress ECG had a less than 2mm change (whatever that means) which, whilst not good, is better than a more than 2mm change.  I was prescribed more (!) medication which gave me 5 days of awful side-effects, so I had to stop.  Despite these health issues, I’m feeling in pretty good shape.  I must be, I complete the 9 week Insanity workout in 2 days.  I’ve really enjoyed it and will be continuing.  I’ve just about got enough space in my 2m x 3.75m ‘box’.

Be happy, be safe, see you next time.
