On Holy Island, Northumbria, on Chuck’s 90th birthday, July 2022

We’ve caught up to 2023 with a massive update of this site. Post lockdown, we’re travelling again: our latest travelogue is the 40-minute Roundabout Route to the Fringe. There’s also a 4-minute promotional video for the new board game Chuck has published, ADMAN. And, for family and friends only, a four-part video memoir of his life . . . so far. (Send an email for the password.) In her blog Judith brings up-to-date her series of bi-monthly contributions to the newsletter of the National Association of Sessional GPs, most recently about natural remedies in Eye of Newt and Toe of Frog? And in Jumping Ship Chuck tells what it’s like to renounce your U.S. citizenship.

Watch any of 84 videos in the Cinema – mostly travelogues ranging from one to sixty minutes. For more armchair travel enter the Library and read our Travel Diaries. You can also access the Bookshop here. In the Theatre you can read the reviews and watch two plays. In her blog called Perspectives Judith continues the series of articles collected in her book of that title exploring life and culture from a General Practitioner’s viewpoint. Chuck also posts occasional reflections on his blog, Growing Old Gratefully. And there’s a Gallery (under reconstruction) where you can view some of our favourite photographs and Judith’s sketches.
