When I see careless spelling mistakes in online page titles - TITLES, people, not footnotes, but TITLES - I get a nervous tic around my left eye and clench my fists reflexively. #petpeeve #spelling

When both my legs were amputated, they were closed at the upper-thigh, leaving stumps of 8-10cm each. This means that they are too short for me to walk with prostheses and I have been resigned to face life in a wheelchair. A few weeks ago, one of my…

I haven't shared anything from my blog in a while, so here is my latest post, borrowing advice from +Dolly Parton. I think it's a good one, but let me know your thoughts. :) http://darylhb.com/2015/02/02/dreams-are-for-grownups/ #blog #dreams #ambitions #DollyParton #LindaRonstadt  
What advice would you give the next generation if you were asked? When Dolly Parton (yes, that woman is a legend, an inspiration and a fabulous role model; I could extol her virtues and achievement...

How a homophopic gang attack tore one man's whole life apart: http://ind.pn/1nkyBaF Hate crimes must not be tolerated. (via +The Independent#NoBystanders
It was a beautiful, balmy summer's evening the night Stewart O'Callaghan lost everything. At 10.30pm on 20 July, 2013, he and his partner Matt left a close friend's house and started walking home down Hackney Road in London's East End. The trees were in full bloom. The heat was just beginning to dip, a breeze picking up as their arms collided and hands linked. A few streets away, the music festival Lovebox boomed and throbbed, throngs of partygoe...

Fantastic tour that enabled me to see LA from my wheelchair! This tour allowed me to see everything I wanted to see in LA (plus some things I didn't even know I'd want to see) and I will remember the day fondly for years. Our driver and tour guide, Raul, was brilliant. It was amazing that he could maintain such a great sense of humor throughout the day amid the L.A. traffic (he is super funny!). He was incredibly considerate when it came to helping me in and out of my wheelchair at every stop, and by the end of the tour he was a pro at assembling it! I was also impressed at how willing Raul was to accommodate every passenger, with whatever their request, to the best of his abilities. He always made sure we were comfortable and entertained (and hydrated)! It is very difficult to find a tour company in any city that will cater to a wheelchair-user without charging exorbitantly for personalized care, but these guys went the extra mile to help me. Granted, as a double leg amputee with good upper-body strength, I am fortunately able to lift and move myself. This tour probably would not be able to accommodate someone less independent, but that is taken for granted with a bus tour. Other bus tours that I contacted regarding a day trip did not even respond to my messages, and I know that I would not have seen as much or learned as much (or enjoyed it as much) as I did on the Day in LA Tour! Awesome time!
