  1. As folks may know I have a painful double ankle fracture. I whipped out my VDS with meds info in it for the ambulance medics when aaked. The chap said "A long time since I have seen a Filofax!!" yet also said, "Well done on being so organized!!" Anyone else who just cannot plan on a weeny teeny phone screen???
