2. I am fascinated by tuberculosis, having cared for many sufferers, and read many tb books, from "The White Death" through to "That's How it Was" and "The Magic Mountain". I have primary TB, but of course so does most of the world's population!

3. I have three children, Rosie, 24, who has a degree in Chinese and Oriental Art and Archeology, and a doppelganger who is an Australian porn star.

Now I know even more about you, my friend. Isn't it fun thinking up what to say and learning about others?

Well, you daisy picot turned out beautifully.
Ah, a deer hound - The one breed I always wanted but never quite got 'round to - & now at 71 too old to make a 'lifetime' commitment to one of that lovely breed.
Your interest in TB might lead you to google about Ft. Bayard, New Mexico. In the thirties - it was a sanitarium. This area has such good, clean mountain air and a low humidity. There is quite a history at the Silver City Museum about the subject.
I enjoyed your blog and your tatting. You sound like a very interesting and fun person.
