Alton’s Disgrace — Our NEGLECTED Historic Railway Semaphore.

I have been trying for 5-years to get the town, i.e., the Town of Alton, to take care of these historic railway semaphores.

They are in theory PROTECTED by some State statute but nobody enforces it.

The ‘Lady’ responsible for taking care of these just does NOT care. She has other, more amusing distractions.

I talked to an Alton ‘Parks & Rec’ employee, who I know, who happened to be there about it. He agreed it was a SHAME.

They should be painted and painted CORRECTLY — at least one red arm. The lens should be replaced.

This in unbecoming of Alton.

Weather permitting this should be quite the conjunction — best seen around 7pm.

The moon is set to set around 8:20pm and more than likely the trees will start getting in the way around 7:30pm.

Journey Through Bladder Cancer Treatment By My Former Colleague Patrice Bourgeois Leeds.

Patrice Bourgeois Leeds cancer blog radiation bladder

Click image to access WordPress blog by Patrice Bourgeois Leeds about her journey through cancer treatment.


Patrice and I worked at CASE Communications, in Columbia, Maryland, 31-year ago. Her Dad worked for CASE too — and I worked with him for over a year before Patrice joined the crew. Her Dad, about the same age as my Adoptive Father, was my first mentor in the U.S. and a very good and dependable friend. He and I, I from the Britain and he from the U.S., were part of the original CASE U.S.A management team — CASE, a market-leading U.K. company having bought the U.S. Rixon Corporation to get a foothold in the U.S. Patrice was the Product Manager for Multiplexers. I was the Director of Marketing for Multiplexers. So she controlled my destiny. Her Dad was the Directing Marketing for Distributor Sales. He helped me sell through the ‘channels’ as we called it. So these two, daughter and dad, played a huge hand in my fortunes and income. They never let me down. A rarity at CASE.

 I had lost touch with Patrice over the years, and alas Dad is no longer with us.

Just over a year ago, the unexpected death of two of our other colleagues, Don & Sandy Pyle, in that famous Christmas-tree fire of a multi-million dollar mansion, brought a few of us together — over social media.

I only found out that Patrice had cancer around Christmas. She kept it to herself until she decided she was not going to have the surgery.

She had asked me about doing a blog and I urged her to do so — and, of course, suggested WordPress.

So, we now have a blog.

I am a great believer that stories like this HAVE to be told. It is good for all. Therapeutic to write and inspirational to others. Plus, Patrice can write — and write well.

Patrice has to get better and not get too tired during the treatment because I have twisted her arm to proof my books. She is good with anything to do with words.

So, bookmark her blog. Wish her well. And follow her on her journey.
