I'm Not Dead...

It's been a long time since you've heard from me (I guess that makes you the lucky ones, then !) so I figured it was about time that I gave you a quick update on what has been going on in my world in recent weeks.

Most of you know that on June 25th, I was admitted to York Hospital to undergo my gastric bypass operation, and apart from a couple of minor mishaps whilst in surgery, I can report that this was a success. I was both shocked and delighted to find that on attending the outpatients last week I had lost just over 3 stone in 4 weeks ! Weight loss prop bet, anyone ? ;-)

I've also started getting back into motorcycle racing again after a few years in the wilderness whilst living in Dundee, and have been involved in sourcing parts for an upcoming project where I will be assisting in the building of a sidecar racing machine, although my input has probably been less than helpful at times due to feeling pretty lothargic since the operation.

Gambling and poker has taken a back seat since early this year, although I shall be having a think now the footie season is fast approaching in terms of who the movers and shakers shall be come the season end. Quite fancying shoving a few quid on AC Milan to take the UEFA Cup - Coral are offering 7/1 right now on this.

Thanks for reading,
Mountain Man
