Strange Emails

Like everybody who has an email account I get my fair share of spam. The gmail account that is associated with this blog gets about 30 spam emails each day, but as it automatically sifts them from real emails its not a problem. It's somewhat different with my personal email account which fortunately doesn't get anywhere near as much spam but has had a lot of bogus emails about my bank account and new security measures; these get removed immediately without being opened because it is obvious that they are phishing because they purported to come from banks where I don't actually have an account.

This evening I received an email that invited me to take part in some round table discussions. It seemed to be from someone who had an email address that seemed to be in the Houses of Parliament. I guess that I can be excused for being a bit wary about this email, after all it's not every day that I get an email asking me to take part in discussions in the House of Commons. Yes, that's right. I have been invited to the House of Commons to talk about patients having online access to their medical records.

It seems that I am really getting to some interesting places to talk on this subject.

How cool and how exciting! That's definitely one to look forward to!

You seem brighter these last couple of posts: certainly the one explaining about the psychologist and what you talk about was the first time I've seen write about that.

Yeah I agree with what Alhi said you seem better at the moment. I'm really pleased for you. And it's fantastic that you have the opportunity to talk in the House of Commons.
