Firstly, I must introduce myself, and then move on to what my blog is about. Ken Collins is my name, born in 1944. My wife of 44 years (Marilyn) and I, make a very small close family. Marilyn is now my carer as well; a fine example of multitasking.

This blog will follow my disability journey and how I deal with it in such a way that enables me to get as much out of life, as I am able. In documenting this activity, it is my hope that other disabled people will be encouraged to, as well. There is a lot of assistive equipment available, but, there are a lot of simple D.I.Y. aids that can be easily made by oneself, or modified to suit a different purpose. We need to continually look for ideas.
