Brightness in the Shadows

Have a Lift through Lockdown

Four more weeks of lockdown isn't what any of us want, but by doing our bit we can stay safe and save lives.  Isolation is hard for everyone, but much harder for some than others. We at OOSO are your friends and we have an excellent network of friendly folk who have been through cancer and very similar traumas.

So, if during lockdown you would just like a chat, please drop me a line ('get connected') and I will put you in touch with our most friendliest of folk who will brighten up your day. 

Lockdown - The Rules

A kind journalist has produced a list of the rules that apply during this second national lockdown. You can see a copy of that list by clicking here.

Perhaps the most significant rule for we members of OOSO is
Medical appointments to continue as normal.
In other words you can legitimately still leave home to attend your medical appointments.

Get Snappy, Be Happy - OOSO Winter Watch

To help us through lockdown we invite you to join in our photography challenge "OOSO Winter Watch".

From Thursday 5 November we're launching Anne Phillips' excellent idea of a photography competition running through November to Thursday 17 December. We hope you join in the challenge.

The four categories are WILDLIFE, SCENERY, PEOPLE and JUST FOR FUN.

The rules are quite simple. Your pictures must be taken between 5 November and 17 December. Please email your favourite pictures to or WhatsApp them me using my number 0775-999-6969 and we will create a gallery for you to view and enjoy.

On the closing date Jackie will select a shortlist of the best pictures in each category. These shortlisted entrants will each receive an OOSO "Rosette of Recognition". Jackie will have the final word choosing the winners in each categaory. The winners will receive a small Christmas Gift from OOSO. So, get snappy - be happy.

Next OOSO Zoom Meeting, 24 November, 07:00pm

You don't have to be an old dog to join us, just send me a note.

If you have a question about diet for Liz Ward, or if you have another question for Bruno Sgromo send your question via me.

If you'd like a dry run to practise being in a Zoom Meeting, don't be shy, send me an email.
As always stay safe and don't forget your camera.

Kind regards
