The iron lung and the Blues.

June Middleton made the news this week by being included in the pages of Guiness World Book of Records for the longest time spent in an iron lung.

Mrs Middleton, 80, contracted polio in 1949 at the age of 23 and now spends 18 hours a day in the machine. Fifty-seven years on, she was presented with a certificate whilst attached to a portable respirator, and watching her beloved footbal team, Carlton (The Blues) training for the upcoming pre-season competition.

Some of the players were interviewed at the occasion, and all expressed their admiration for her strength of will and character. As well they should be. Judging by the results of the last two seasons, I think it's safe to say that Mrs. Middleton has worked a damn sight harder than some of the players lately.
