There’s no secret to our success over the last 10 months. I’ve always cooked for the last 10 years here and then 10 months ago the ketogenic way arrived to help me and ultimately MrsJ. Everyday it’s the same process, home to get Mrs J comfy etc and then I get my backside into the kitchen to make...

MrsJ said something to me tonight that really hit home, especially after she had managed to wrap her arms around my shoulders/neck without me helping her, this after 7 years of not being able to do that..... “How nice it is to be able to cuddle you and show my love without us being lost as a...

This is something that always crops up in messages to me, as you are aware it’s now impossible to reply to all of you, hence this update: I am often asked how do I stay so focused and positive in our world. Here’s something I did a few years ago, I still do it to this day as well and for both of...

For 10 years since progressive ms arrived here I have never heard MrsJ say “I feel great”! Life was a daily fight just to survive and repeat it year in and year out.
