Blind comedian Neil Skene on the retirement of his trusty guide dog, Rumba.
Neil Skene: Barry Gibb is getting me into the rhythm of running and Rumba’s help has me Stayin’ Alive
Well hopefully you survived January and are ready to kick on into 2019.
I’ve just about survived the past few weeks.
Blind comedian Neil Skene on why mud, sweat and tears of joy sum up his last few weeks.
What a few weeks it’s been, I did the Great Aberdeen Run 10k this year and actually led the race until around the 1-mile mark!
The recent warm weather spell we have enjoyed fairly played havoc with my senses - and that from a non-hay fever sufferer.
It is frightening to think the millennium babies all come of age this year, but are they more advanced or better off than those of us that came of age in the 80s?
Well you will gather from the title I’ve done lots of business training.
With January now over, I am looking forward to a good 2018.
The festive season can be chaotic, and for some, a simple ‘Merry Christmas and Happy New Year’ text or social media post is all they can come up with to show they are thinking of friends and family.
I was fascinated to learn of a special dating event being held in Aberdeen for adults with learning difficulties.
September is here already and I completed my first ever Aberdeen half marathon.
Now we are in the heart of the so-called summer - tennis, cricket and the start of football again - I am regularly asked about blind people and co-ordination.
Well after mentioning my running last month, many people have asked how I manage this, some wondered if Rumba accompanied me.
This month, I’d thought I’d give a wee insight into the rock’n’roll life I have when away from the day job, and also to ask, where does the hour go?
Most people can’t live without technology, be it for work or for fun.
There is nothing more embarrassing than plumping yourself down on an occupied seat.
