Exactly a year ago, on May 16, 2008 my symptoms started, and I was diagnosed with a brain tumour a few days later. I have no intention to open a bottle to celebrate. This may sound bitter, but hey, I just don’t think this occasion warrants a party. I will, however, clean and fire up my Weber Genesis grill and treat my family to a nice braai (afrikaans for barbecue). Yummy – but first to work!
