We didn't mark this anniversary yesterday.

RIP Chris.

No we didn't. Thanks Bob.
I can't help but remember his response to the "stock" photo of him often presented when he said he's actually a more pleasant person than he looks. I will always regret not ever being able to just sit down and chat with him about the allure of research.

He certainly was dedicated and persistent.
Godspeed Chris.

And in the later years he carried on with the superb research when he was very ill - not only from the illness which killed him but from Meniere's disease too, which is a horrible thing to have.

One of Chris's passions was growing lilies at his Ramsgate home, as he showed in a superbly illustrated thread he began here in July 2012 "My garden in bloom..... :-)". Check it out!

Here I post in memory of Chris a photograph I took of lilies in the Ripley Gardens at the Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C.

I never encountered Chris on the boards but on a number of occasions I have been grateful for his legacy.

I once listened to a podcast featuring Chris from which I picked up a very useful tip. When faced with illegible handwriting he suggested looking at the document or screen from different angles. At the time I was struggling with a Dublin street name on a death cert. When the podcast finished I got the cert and looked at it from every which way and eventually it gave up its secret.

Thanks Chris!

Chris Scott's work can always be a starting point for other research. Many times he explained his searches and what he was thinking while he sorted through information. This is extremely helpful.

Robert Linford-

A former female co-worker had Meniere's disease. When she walked from one place to the other, she had to lean against the wall on either side of the hallway or passageway. When walking outside with nothing to lean against, forget about it. Horrible. It hit her in her early 60's.

That's what my GP thinks I may have (symptoms began in March), but it's almost impossible to give a firm diagnosis until everything else has been ruled out, and there's no cure anyway, so I'm just on tablets for whenever the ghastly vertigo strikes. I'm having a reasonably good day today, but it only increases the admiration I had for Chris Scott to think he was suffering with this and managing to do any research.

Love,

Caz

Hi Caz

I hope you manage to dodge it. One thing : I knew an old boy who had it, and he had to watch how much tea he drank, because he was on a restricted liquid intake. That presumably meant liquid of any kind, Caz.
