Keeping Up With The Walk Beside.

You never know what is going to happen with the internet these days.

Firstly, some of you may have realised if you have done a google search for ‘The Walk Beside’ to get to this site, then you may have been greeted by The Walk Beside heading, but with details underneath of how to buy various pharmaceutical products for a firm body, or parts thereof.

A friend called me months ago and said that The Walk Beside had been blocked due to inappropriate material, and he listed a few words (I blocked my other ear) that were coming up that I remember getting punished for saying when I was a child. I went through the site and confirmed those words weren’t on the site at all, and besides, I didn’t even know how to spell the words he listed.

Anyway, Guennadi (who knows everything about computers) sorted it out this morning. It seems I was hacked into and words were hidden in the header of some posts, but not displayed, so they were there, but not visible. Whenever a search was done, the words would appear. Sorry to families with young children who have may have spent some time having to explain, or deny any knowledge, of some words and phrases.

On a positive, I was contacted last week by a lady in California who has co-authored a book on the effects of chemo brain with a Doctor at UCLA (University of California, Los Angeles). A cancer survivor herself, she asked if she could use the post I wrote on Chemo Brain the other day in the book. The manuscript gets sent to the publishers at the end of the month and I will score a free copy.

Keep your ears to the ground for my book signing tour.

Hi Cam. We just googled “the walk beside” looking for you … so glad we found you instead of drugs.
We’re so sad for what you’ve had to experience over the last couple of years. You have such a way of articulating and reflecting in this blog. Congratulations on your current endeavours – how great to be relaunching the family business. And congrats on entering Uncle-dom too!
