Sir Terry Pratchett

He was a great writer from "The Colour of Magic" to "Down the Long Mars". Particular favourites of mine were "The Wee Free Men" and "Getting up Steam" All brilliant stuff. I wish I could have thanked him personally for all the laughter he's given me down the long years.

being elderly and an insomniac for the last 30 yrs - read the last continent - overnight -- magic (and I don't mean wizards lol) his perception and the ability to put a different slant on things was incredible (we have all met Dibblers -in fact they seem to gravitate to 'elected' posts - ahem) but reading that last night, I did like the concept that geography was inversely proportional to time -- ( maybe that is why Bedlington has so many issues)

      All they want to do is cradle their newborn baby in their arms.
      But Bedlington parents Carly Walker and Ryan Murphy have been forced to watch from the sidelines as their daughter fights for her life.
      Little Ayda Faith Murphy was born prematurely on March 31, weighing just 4lbs, at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary.
      Rushed for her first operation straight after birth and another at just four days old, she's battling terrifying odds after being diagnosed with a series of incredibly rare birth defects.
      An almost unique variant of gastroschisis, a defect of the abdominal wall, has left her intestines pushing up into her chest - a condition doctors estimate is suffered by no more than 10 babies worldwide.
      Meanwhile, her heart appears to have flipped over and lies on the wrong side of her chest, while she's receiving oxygen from a machine due to her underdeveloped lungs.
