Meg talks about her brother

Meg talks about her brother dismantling things in his youth. I have memories of my brother dismantling things too, although it was never computers (we only had Etch-a-Sketch back then). In fact, it’s a habit he hasn’t grown out of, and now you will invariably find him building things or dismantling them – Land Rovers used to be a favourite, until he got all domesticated, and now it is kitchen units. Unlike Meg, however, I don’t possess many fixing skills, so inevitably rely on big brother or dad to fix stuff.
Anyway, the point of this is that it was my big bro’s birthday yesterday – the big lummox was 39. Happy Birthday Timbo.

today is World AIDS Awareness

today is World AIDS Awareness Day. I’m not going to harp on about AIDS awareness, but I wanted readers to think about these things: there are one-and-a-half times as many people infected with HIV today as have died from AIDS so far. In parts of Africa, teachers and doctors are dying from AIDS faster than new ones are being trained, and entire generations have been wiped out or are orphaned.
Everyone can do something to stop the spread of HIV/AIDS – wander here for some useful “tips”.
