Today it’s Friday 2nd March and it’s Walk All Over Cancer ~ Day 2. If you are reading this when it’s new you’ll know the UK is gripped by some of the coldest weather we’ve experienced in years. Schools are closed and there are plenty of problems on the roads and train network in my area which is very unusual. I ventured out just after 9:30am and walked for about an hour and I managed over 6,000 steps – I hope to go out again later – so fingers crossed!
As I said yesterday, I’m not going to pester people to donate. I think my plan is to donate a quid every time I complete 10,000 steps – I’m committed to doing the 310,000 steps in the 31 days and I’ll add a few more as I hit various targets along the way, so it will add up to a few quid.
If you know me well you will know our lives have been tainted by cancer and I always do my best to contribute when asked. I really believe that the fight against this terrible disease is getting somewhere – we’ve noticed changes and improvements in the care given since Ce was fist diagnosed with breast cancer back in December 2002. It would be amazing if cancer wasn’t a problem for future generations.

Here’s a couple of snaps from this morning Walk All Over Cancer ~ Day 2 “stroll”!
At least one of my local DJ friends had a wedding yesterday and many of my wedding supplier friends are trying to work out how they are going to get to their venues today and tomorrow. The main roads locally were fairly clear without much traffic, the problems are on the minor roads. If you have a look around this blog you will find posts about getting married in the various months of the year like THIS ONE about March Weddings.
So that’s Walk All Over Cancer ~ Day 2. Secondly … the Facebook thing which is supposed to be “10 LPs that make the “favourites” playlist. Post a cover a day, no explanation, nominate a person a day.” I’m going to post something every day during the Walk All Over Cancer challenge on my Facebook page but give it some context here.
The album I listened to on my walk today was Jungle (CLICK HERE to go to their website). I love this album which came out in 2014. Jungle are basically a duo of two guys, Josh and Tom, and they add loads of others when they play live. I love the groove they create and for me they paved the way (in my head at least) for The Weeknd (who will probably feature here later this month).
Jungle have a new album due this year and are touring here in May but I think I’m not cool enough to be allowed in.
Here’s their 2015 set from Glastonbury
