It was a hard battle and it took time to sink in that it was finally behind us. The medical and surgical teams from the Neurology department at the University of Chicago must have been totally drained working in an unique environment once the go ahead was received for their high impact life-saving intervention. I was dying, poisoned by my legs that had spread their poison slowly but surely upwards before they were amputated too late. To think, Grandpa ‘J’ played rugby for Scotland and thought it too dangerous a game, so he got me a motocross bike for my fourth birthday! This was fantastic. This was not just pushing the boundaries of science. This was stepping right into science fiction: This was science fiction going mainstream. I eye-typed my first ever question from inside my new world to be read - and heard - by the outside real world: “How are you?” It has taken me 27 years to fully transit from the physical world to an all embracing virtual one but still one where I could look back into the old world. Where I could still be part of the real world. Where I could, for the first time in 27 years, turn my head even though it was weighing the better part of two tons. I was 41 when I died on the Moon.I had an accident, cracking my weakened scull, allowing the escaping brain fluids and some brain matter to contaminate what may well have been the only other wet spot on the Moon. A salty frozen puddle that has most probably never seen sun, shielded in a shallow crater on the rim of the Northern Lunar pole. A Sci-Fi story with a twist. Some people go to the Dignitas Clinic in Switzerland. I went to the Moon. It was not a suicide mission. It was a celebration to be me mission. It was as much a public relations exercise as a first in scientific expedition. Nobody understood that better than my Mom with her blog. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jeff Blair.

These few paragraphs distill the contents and give you a quick look inside: Beilby Porteus, Edenhall, in one of his books, after mentioning the uses of Penrith Beacon, added:-'Before these parts were enclosed, every parish church served as a means of communication with its neighbours; and, while the tower of Edenhall Church bears evident tokens of such utility, there yet exist at my other church at Langwathby, a morion, back, and breast-plate, which the parish were obliged to provide for a man, termed the 'Jack,' whose business it was at a certain hour in the evening to keep watch, and report below, if he perceived any signs of alarm, or indications of incursions from the Border.' ...'It is ordered and constituted by the Alderman and head burgesses of this borough of Kirkby Kendal, that from henceforth nightly in the same borough at all times in the year, there shall be kept and continued one sufficient watch, the same to begin at nine of the clock of the night, and to continue until four of the clock in the morning, in which watch always there shall be six persons, viz.,[Pg 18] two for Sowtergate, two for Marketstead and Stricklandgate, and two for Stramagate, to be taken and going by course in every constablewick one after the other, and taking their charge and watchword nightly off the constables or their deputies, severally as in old times hath been accustomed; which six persons so appointed watchmen nightly shall be tall, manlike men, having and bearing with them in the same watch every one a halberd, ravenbill, axe, or other good and sufficient iron bound staff or weapon, sallett or scull upon every one his head, whereby the better made able to lay hands upon and apprehend the disordered night walkers, malefactors, and suspicious persons, and to prevent and stay other inconveniences, and shall continually use to go from place to place and through street and street within the borough during all the time appointed for their watch, upon pain to forfeit and lose to the Chamber of this borough for every default these pains ensuing, that is to say, every householder chargeable with the watch for his default 3s. 4d., and every watchman for his default such fine and punishment as shall be thought meet by the Alderman and head burgesses.' ...'And shall contynnally goo and walk ffrome place to place in and throughe suche streete within the same boroughe as they shal be opoyntyd and assigned by the Constabull or his deputy then settinge the watch that is to say ij of them in everie suche streete in companye together[Pg 19] as they may be apoynted ffor their sayd watche vpon payne to forfeyte and losse to the Chamber of this Bourgh for everie fault dewly pved theis payns ensuinge that is to say everie householder and wedow and bachler Chargeable wth the watche for his default xijd and every watchman ffor his default such ffyne and punnyshmt as shal be thought mete by the Alderman or his deputye ffrome tyme to tyme beinge.' ...John Cory, county architect for Cumberland, read his paper on the subject at Carlisle a quarter of a century ago, he pointed out some of the characteristics of these ancient ecclesiastical strongholds: 'The distance from each other tells of a scanty population; the deficiency of architectural decoration shows that the inhabitants of the district were otherwise engaged than in peaceful occupations; while traces of continual repairs in[Pg 29] the fabric are evidently not to be attributed to the desire shown in the churches of many southern counties to make good buildings better, but h
