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.

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!

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 :-)

Sorry for the angry (and slightly sweary post) but fuck the UKIP. If you voted for a party full of bigots and racists you need to take a long hard look at yourself in the mirror. This is nothing less than people voting on prejudice and not on facts. I suspect the bullshit agenda consistently spouted by aspects of the UK media such as the Daily Mail has fostered much of the anti European sentiment.

I've not been swung on the prospect of Scottish independence, but it's entirely preferable to living under the rule of a far right Tory/UKIP coalition.

Rant over.

Yum! I was through in Glasgow for work and decided I was going to start a BurritoChallenge™. That's right, a challenge to find the UK's best Burrito. Why? Why not. So I chose a Vege Chilli option, with sour cream, jalapeños, hot salsa, pinto beans and rice. The proportion of my Burrito was generous, and it was fresh and extremely tasty. The price was very reasonable and the service was quick and friendly. As Burritos go I'd say it was very very good, but just a shade behind the Vegetarian Haggis option from illegal jacks. Still, if you love Tex Mex cuisine it's a great place for some fresh and fast food, eat in or take away. Recommended!

So this was a nice surprise that I discovered today. Outside its your typical unassuming Edinburgh pub and inside your first impression might be that it's nothing special - but you'd be wrong. The food here is a little bit special. For example we ordered a side of Onion Rings which turned out to be quite literally a tower... Enough for 3 or 4 people never mind one! All the portions were incredibly generous and tasted pretty good. They cater to both vegetarians and vegans, an unusual thing for Edinburgh pubs. The staff were really friendly and if you love your rock/goth music you'll love the jukebox. It's also a short walk from another Edinburgh favourite - Arthur's Seat. So if you fancy a brisk walk taking in the incredible views of Edinburgh from atop the crags this is a great place to bookend it. Visit!!

In a word - Wow! I have never seen a sandwich made like this before and apparently West is something of a local legend. They make fresh sandwiches to order right in front of your eyes - I ordered the Goats Cheese with Chilli jam and I've never seen so many fresh ingredients layered on top of each other to make a sandwich. Chilli jam, lettuce, red onions - I actually I lost count of how many ingredients were going into putting it together and just watching it being constructed was a fascinating experience. At one point I wondered if the bread was actually be able to hold the sandwich together such were the quantities and variety of fillings going into it - It nearly took on Scooby Doo esque proportions. Ultimately however what really mattered was the taste, and it was absolutely delicious, right up there amongst my all time favourite sandwiches and at a price that wasn't particularly expensive. If you're visiting Belfast and want a lunchtime snack you absolutely need to go here. You can sit in, but it can get very busy. I <3 West.

Panda & Sons is a really cool bar in Edinburgh, tucked away in Edinburgh's new town a short walk from Princes Street. Straight from the moment you enter the venue it espouses hipster cool - From the outside it looks like a hairdressers, and after heading down the stairs you need to open a bookcase to enter! Inside the decor is very lounge (If you've ever visited Edinburgh's The Place Under The Stairs you'll be right at home). Old style furniture, with leather chairs, dimly lit - shabby chic at it's finest. On offer on the menu is a range of cocktails, craft beers/ales and wine so if you like your alcohol a little less mainstream or want to let your tastebuds explore something a little different to the usual pub fare you'll be right at home. There is table service, though I found that we had to walk to the bar a couple of times to order and at one point an order I had made was forgotten - However the staff were very friendly and apologetic about this, discounting my bill without my even asking. At weekends it can get very busy so you'll need to book in advance as it's seating only. If you want to visit a bar in Edinburgh with a really comfortable, quirky atmosphere Panda & Sons comes highly recommended.

Maybe I'm the worst person to review pubs ever because I barely drink.... But I really enjoyed this one! Jeremiah's Taproom is as far as I know pretty new, so new in fact that I had to add it to Google Maps. In addition to the selection of beverages which were no doubt on offer (apparently they have a good variety of cask ales), what really made this place stand out is the food. They do a wide selection of gourmet burgers which I and some friends found delicious. They had table service which was quick and friendly and make a nice change from having to visit the bar to order. Inside the decor was a cool blend of the old and new, it's kinda difficult to describe. Oh and the food was served on these kinda funky wooden trays. Next time I'll need to take a picture. If you want to fill your belly and quench your thirst it's a great place to visit, and it's only a stones throw from the Edinburgh Playhouse if you're catching a show. Recommended.

It's a multiplex, kind of like any other really! The cinema was clean, the screen I viewed my movie on was exceptionally large and the seats were comfortable. It's difficult to fault what they do, which is showing off Blockbuster movies. The only negative was the staff member who served me who did her job but seemed disinterested in me as a customer with little eye contact, and a half hearted hello/thank you at the end. This didn't particularly impact my experience of the movie however. If you fancy catching a blockbuster in Belfast city centre you could do far worse.

So apparently this is the most bombed hotel in Europe according to the locals (something I didn't know before staying) - but don't let that put you off, it's been well over a decade since there was any kind of trouble! Inside the decor is chic and modern, as befitting somewhere Bill Clinton stayed on his visit to Northern Ireland. The staff were friendly, my room was comfortable (albeit not huge) and there was a really nice walk in shower. The location is excellent if you want to explore Belfast's city centre as you're literally a few minutes walk away from City Hall and many of the other attractions the city has to offer. I didn't try out the restaurant on my stay (I was only there for one night) but I've been told it's highly recommended. If you are looking for a nice hotel to stay in whilst in Belfast, with a little bit more character and history than most it's definitely the place to be!
