Glad to be alive!21st July 2006
Summer is well and truly here, and as we disappear under the weight of ‘out of office’ replies from our recent News Update I hope that you are enjoying those well deserved breaks.
Breaks … hmmm, that brings me to my enforced four week one from hc2d, from which I have just emerged. Having suffered whiplash and had my car written off it was with interest I read the BMJ issue a few weeks ago focused on death and injury on the roads. I will now be included in the ‘non-fatal injury’ statistics, but refuse to be squeezed into the mould (it was always so!) of the most common causes of accident injury; seat belts (one in six drivers in London still don’t wear them), speed, alcohol or sleepiness …….. I was a) dutifully wearing a seatbelt b) travelling at snail pace c) tea-total and d) wide awake. The common causes do not include other cars travelling at 60mph whose breaks fail and plough into one’s drivers door …..
Well done to all the team at hc2d for their valiant efforts in my absence. I hope you agree that it continues to go from strength to strength; I was particularly impressed on my return with the new Front Page and the launch of our News Summary. As always, all your feedback is welcomed and acted upon.
I’ve returned with a renewed sense of vibrancy and anticipation about the possibilities of the site, which I hope will be reflected in its developments over the coming months.
I hope, like me, you’re glad to be alive – may I wish you a happy summer, enjoy it before the winter sets in …… we may have a couple of days left before then!
