ABOUT THIS BLOG:
This blog is intended to cover topics of interest to me about stories which often fly under the radar but which I think require wider media coverage. To this end, some basic criteria (likely to increase over time) for stories are:

- Stories of resilience and recovery.
- Stories of bravery.
COMMENTS TO THIS BLOG:
Comments are welcome, but all comments will be moderated. Why? Because this is just a blog, not the most important thing in the world, and I don’t see any reason for anyone being sued because of a few words here or there. There are no real rules for comments, but a read of the comments will give you an idea of what is acceptable.
This blog post is likely to change over time.
