A weird free hotel (that checked your BP every four hours – awake AND asleep): My recent experience of the NHS.

Addenbrookes fixed my bimalleolar (broken ankle) very well Happy 2020! I’ve been away from my website for some time (some of which was under my control some of it less so).

Pleiotropic… what?

Pleiotropic, this word explains why the posts on this site are a little scattered and not yet bundled into nice easy sections. It’s not just because my brain hasn’t felt sharp enough to turn on a concise, subject dividing sixpence recently! Also, life isn’t neat and tidy: Everything is interconnected! what does pleiotropic mean? Dr Tom O Bryan defined pleiotropic for his followers a few years back…...
