What a busy, busy month February has been!  It doesn't seem like five minutes since I wrote the last blog!

Our Project 65 continues to go from strength to strength.  At the time of writing this blog we have received 41 referrals, which is amazing!  Our partnership working with O2 for the 'Hot Spots' is working really well - check out our Facebook page to see some of the stories - http://www.facebook.com/incontrolable.cic.1 A big 'Thank you' to Kim and Steve, our volunteers for all their hard work.  (Not to mention me and Hazel!!)

Should we be surprised that Premier League Clubs look like they will miss the deadline for improving access for supporters with disabilities?  If they had took the time to read my blog, they would have seen I have been ranting on about this for over a year now!!! http://m.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/38828349

A lady called Emily Yates who has Cerebral Palsy met a well-known Australian faith healer.  If you want to know why Emily attended the session and its outcome - then why not have a read of her blog?  http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbcthree/item/12fb29da-567c-488b-8523-d1f11a79e40c

If you had the choice of having a potentially life changing surgery, or to have a career in music - what would you do?  The following link is an article about Lea from America who made this decision and why she did what she did?  http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/disability-36315689

This is an interesting one!  Members of the Sikh community in Wolverhampton who have disabilities challenged the custom of worship where they are required to sit crossed legged, but not only that, they were screened off from other worshippers.  Follow the link to see the outcome of the court case.  http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-birmingham-39029675

I thought I would keep the best one until last!  A Government aide stated that disability benefits should go to "really disabled people" not those "taking pills at home, who suffer from anxiety".  Read this article and you can make your own judgement, but I think you already know what my thoughts are!  http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-39097019

Joke of the month - A Mexican magician tells an audience he will disappear on the count of three.  He says "uno, dos - poof" he disappeared without a tres!

My wings are aching, the eagle has landed.  See you next month.
