I took this at a viewing point on the A82 near Glencoe. Typically Scottish, from the weather to the barren landscape and muted colours.

Quick question fellow Google+ members. I want to transfer ownership of a community I run to someone else as long term I have an illness which will mean I can't continue in my role. Do you know if this is possible and if so how I'd do it? Do I need to e-mail someone at Google? Thanks in advance if you're able to answer this question :-)

Alright G+  people (and advance apologies for another long post)

I sorta promised I wasn't going to use this place as a self indulgent "tumour update blog" and I was going to post more stuff in general, but so far I've been fairly crap at that. And so here's my latest update..

I had a follow up MRI scan last week which was timed to coincide with the end of my radiotherapy by 3 months - and I got the results of that scan this week. The great news is that although the tumour hasn't shrunk, it has stalled and it hasn't spread! Which was pretty much the best news I could hope for. They want me to return after 4 months for a follow up meeting but until then I'm pretty much left to my own devices. What all this means practically is that my symptoms haven't changed much and are unlikely to change (daily vomiting, double vision, tiredness, dizziness) but things shouldn't get too much worse in the short term. And there's plans to do things to tackle my symptoms such as Botox!! for my vision, alternate medication for my sickness and making sure I have a more regimented diet and exercise plan to combat the tiredness. So you never know, whilst I may never get back to full normality again, If I can get closer that's a blessing.

Anyway, one more thing before you can go back to normal service! Quite a few of you asked what you could do and I said very little beyond maybe hanging out or giving money to charity. Well for the latter, my girlfriend is doing a 10k run to support fundraising for a brain tumour charity alongside her friend Rosaria whose dad was also diagnosed with a terminal brain tumour last year. If you could donate anything, even £1 I would really appreciate it. To those who already have, my heartfelt thanks - it means a lot. They hit their target of £500 within 24 hours, so the goal is now £1000! I'll pop the link below.

Hope you are all well and having an amazing 2015 so far!

Oh noes, crisis at Tesco. They'll only make £1.4 billion profit this year. Looks like I'll have to redefine my understanding of the concept of "crisis"...

Funny, we were just having this exact same conversation. Only in the stock market could people get upset and see the end of the world because they didn't make as much money never mind still making an eyewatering profit!

Slightly rubbish auto awesome of the waves hitting the sea wall at Anstruther, Scotland. Was hoping to get the sea really crashing against the wall (it was a little wild at times today) but no such joy.

TLDR: I have an inoperable, terminal brain tumour.
I'm sorry for dropping this bombshell, especially as I haven't been posted much in the way of content on Google+ for months. Some of you may have been aware that health wise I haven't been great recently. It probably started around the turn of the year and gradually got worse. Started off as fatigue, then retching, dizziness and double vision. After nearly 10 years of not visiting my GP I found myself visiting nearly weekly having multiple blood tests, ultrasounds, check ups and eventually a CAT scan and MRI. Last Wednesday I had visits with two consultants, one who confirmed I had a brain tumour in the medulla region of my brain. Such is the location, that it's impossible to operate. Even a biopsy to determine whether the tumour is benign or cancerous has a 35% risk of fatality or brain damage which could leave me paralysed, dysfunctional or permanently on a respirator which I decided wasn't worth it. As it can't be removed, eventually unfortunately the tumour will end my life. It's impossible to say how long I have. I'm still functioning and I've been given steroids which have helped give me more energy and reduce my symptoms. I'm also starting radiotherapy in a few weeks time. This will last 6 weeks and although it won't destroy the tumour it could well stop the growth and shrink it. This could extend my life by months or years. Again, it is impossible to know. I'm actually quite calm about everything, though telling my friends or family tends to get me upset. So if I see you in person or talk to you on the phone and I struggle to speak or cry, my apologies. It's not how I normally am and I'm not depressed or in a dark place. My girlfriend and family have been incredibly supportive as have my friends who I've told so far. I'm just looking to find happiness in every day I have left. I'm not a religious person, but if you are and want to pray for me, that doesn't upset me. Lots of people have asked what they can do to help. In all honesty, there's very little. It would be nice to catch up with you (If that's possible due to the fact that my friends on Google+ are spread far and wide). You're welcome to visit, or drop me an email (robbie.adam.moore@gmail.com) or give me a call. Or if I'm well enough grab a coffee or something to eat somewhere, maybe even a day trip. Beyond that feel free to donate to a charity. I don't know which one, but I'm sure there are some really great ones out there. The only thing I'd ask of you as people is that if you have any feuds or gripes, life's too short. Even if it means swallowing your pride it's not worth it. Ditto, little things like silly overtaking when you're in a hurry. Not worth the risk, I promise! Anyway enough rambling. I'm not bitter nor full of regret of the things I haven't done, and hopefully if my health holds up long enough I'll have a chance to do some of those things. If you do want to get in touch, give me a couple of days to process things. As you can imagine I've got a lot of things to process right now. And please, stay healthy and happy. Don't spend your life unhappy if you can. Take responsibility for your situation and if you can change things for the better don't procrastinate or be afraid to make a change.
Loads of love.
Robbie x

The food here is excellent, and that was the main reason we visited. It's a short drive from the centre of York with free parking available on arrival. The menu was varied, and there was a large selection of specials. I opted for a Lamb Rogan Josh which was rich and flavoursome, and the meat was extremely tender. My partner had Roast Lamb with garlic and mint which was equally good. Normally food this good would guarantee a 5 star rating. However between ordering and the food arriving we waited over an hour with no communication as to why this was the case. If they'd indicated that the kitchen was busy or had given us an update we'd have been perfectly content. Unfortunately aside from an apology when the food arrived, there didn't seem to be much care paid to us. A group sitting next to us asked us how long we'd been waiting and actually left due to the lack of communication from the bar/restaurant staff. If the restaurant was extremely busy we might have understood this, but it was not. A shame that the service was not up to the standard of the food. A qualified recommendation then, perhaps we caught them on an off night. On a final note the decor was lovely and definitely evoked the feeling of having something to eat in a village pub. Try it out for yourself, but if your belly can't stand a potential wait, you may want to avoid!

I've been to Platform 5 a few times recently and each time I've enjoyed it. First off, the location is superb for travellers. It's directly opposite Haymarket train station and right next to a local tram stop so it's a great place for a beer or a bit of grub if you're getting into Edinburgh, and particularly handy if you then need to jump on the Tram towards Murrayfield to catch a game of Rugby or take in a gig. It is a chain pub, so don't expect culinary miracles but as chain places go the food is actually pretty good. I've had burgers on my last two visits which were tasty enough and looked appetising, which is more than I can say for other inner city pubs (cough, Wetherspoons, cough). You'll find your usual pub grub on offer from Fish and Chips, to Bangers and Mash so enough range to suit most tastes and at fairly cheap prices. As for booze I can't comment as I'm currently not drinking for health reasons, but I'd expect the standard range. You won't get anything too exotic so look elsewhere if that's the experience you're after. Anyway inside it's light, clean, there's plenty of tables and lots of room. All you can ask for really! It's a nice place, it won't blow you away but it does its job well. Robbie.

Pizza Heaven! If you love Pizza, then this is the place to be. My partner and I went out for dinner a few weeks ago and visited here. I did try to book a table but couldn't get through - the reason was clear when we visited, the place was rammed. Luckily there was a table for two available if we could wait 45 minutes. Not an issue as there are plenty of decent pubs around the area to have a drink in until our table was ready. Inside the decor was clean and modern whilst still maintaining a rustic feel. It felt warm and inviting. The same can be said of the staff who were very friendly. We both had Pizza, mine was a spicy affair with Pepperoni and Chilli. It was very tasty, definitely one of the best Pizza's I've ever had and the staff were happy to give me a takeaway box when I couldn't finish it (It was huge!). Anyway despite being full there was still room for dessert. An After Eight Sundae, which we shared and was delicious. Anyway we'll definitely be going back. If you're in Edinburgh and want the best Pizza in town, this is the place to be - but book early if you want to avoid disappointment, it's clearly a popular space!

I'm not a huge fan of Thai cuisine, but this place is often mentioned as being the best Thai restaurant in Edinburgh and I wasn't disappointed. The Decor inside was tasteful and felt suitably Asian and modern at the same time. We didn't have to wait too long to order. Despite being busy (It appeared packed on the Friday we visited) the waiters/waitresses were attentive. The menu was extensive, with lots for everyone from seafood aficionado's to Vegetarians alike. I had a spicy Beef curry, whilst my partner had a Green curry. The food was ready surprisingly fast and was deliciously filling - the beef was tender and the vegetables extremely tasty alongside some sticky rice. We then finished this off with some Ice Cream to cool the pallet - The mango flavour was especially lovely. If you love Thai cuisine it's definitely worth a visit (and only a stones throw from the castle at the top of the Royal mile so perfect for hungry tourists - though you may need to book). Even if you aren't a huge Thai fan the food is delicious and definitely worth it if you fancy a change from the norm. Great!
