  A Short Note


This is just as short note to explain why TMR is currently taking a short break.

As many of you will know, my elderly father has been very ill for the last few weeks, having been taken into hospital with pneumonia on Saturday 19th January. Initially he responded well to antbiotics, but due to his frail condition he failed to recover and died three days ago on Tuesday 12 February.

As you will appreciate, I have therefore been very busy, especially with relatives wishing to visit Dad in his last days. And now that he is gone (from this realm), there is much to do.

As a consequence TMR is having to take a break. I don't know for sure how long, but hopefully not for more than a few weeks.

My deepest thanks to each and every one of you who has sent messages of condolence.

  Current Programme  


DadOnTheRoofA short, off-the-cuff podcast in which I explain just a little of what's been going on recently in the depths of the Lancashire countryside here in the UK, and why I'm currently finding it difficult to keep TMR refreshed with new podcasts on a regular basis.

In short, my father is passing away, and time for creativity is in very short supply. But I'm determined: I shall do all I can to "keep the show on the road". So, do hang in there; TMR is here to stay!

For us, it’s a hard road and this book will tell you why and what you can still do about it."—Patrick M. Wood
