Dehumidifying to affect where we are now?

Probably this should be split into a larger number of posts? What for example does dehumidifying have to do with youtube updates? I recently made an update to my first ever youtube clip. In the more recent update I’m moving around a bit rather than sitting in two locations that I’m mysteriously transported between. I was able to move better back then than I am now. I think my inner pessimist shines through when I act as if...

Planning isn’t a dirty word!

The title for this piece mentions the dreaded P word, planning. It helps point us toward an important aspect of the season… Not just Christmas dinner timing; which accompaniments to accommodate the most ‘select’ eaters coming to stay or optimal christmas pudding creation time but also likely nap times for all generations visiting. Planning and timing are for life not just for Christmas (but especially at xmas?) The...

Hardly, as I lack the dedication to attach scientific rigour to...

stress and pedalogate!

My lack of speed in getting a post out allows me to refer to stress and pedalogate and roll a couple of subjects together that I think are related. One of them has a more English sensibility to it and the other is global in its appeal. Both, I feel are worth thinking about a bit more thoughtfully as human beings. The first is Pedalogate! The British media had a field day when the newspapers were full of stories that highlighted some...

Stressors

Today’s post is suitable for those with MS and those who live in the world, generally. Stress is everywhere and it’s worse for us all than we might at first think. Apologies Shakespeare for paraphasing the start of Sonnet 43: Sress, how do we love thee? let me count the number of ways (in no particular order) Sugar causes our body to make changes (normalise elevated blood sugar) to get back to a level  playing field...
