"I'm not the man I used to be"...

By NDODS    
Due to problems beyond my control I have not been able to stay on line long enough to upload a image, however I think I might be lucky with this one.

The image forms a series of Posters which I had the opportunity to Design as part of Kent's Combat Stress Awareness campaign.

As a sufferer from PTSD, it was a great honour to get involved in such a huge and extremely worthy campaign.

Tomorrow as you know is Remembrance to day, so I shall be attending the Medway Towns Remembrance Day Service in Rochester Cathedral.

Afterwards I shall by accompanied by 99 invited guests to have luncheon with the Mayor Medway in Rochester's famous Corn Exchange.

It's wonderful, funny but moving. Life is a terminal disease...
We'll be photographing the ceremony in our town tomorrow, doubt we'll get anything like this.
It's depressing doing the ironing but there are ways around it, non iron shirts and wearing sweaters instead of shirts, an extreme measure I've heard about is marriage and that can be worse than ironing. So I'm told.

What a great poster, Nathan. Gets the message across in a way that cannot be mis-understood, yet with a twist of humour that in no way detracts from the seriousness of the message.
Good to see you again, and hope today is fulfilling for you and your colleagues.

Good stuff Nathan and as you well know I'm sympathetic to the cause, anything that makes folk more aware will get my vote. Hope you get your connection issues sorted and that all is as well as it possibly can be with you and yours.....Have a great day today, I've not got in long myself from something similar.
