Did You Know – 05/15/2017

2. Babies from those families that have a furry pet are more likely to have high levels of two gut-friendly microbes that are linked to lower rates of childhood allergies and obesity. According to University of Alberta in Canada after a study of 746 little ones “The abundance of these two bacteria increased two fold when there was a pet in the house.Researcher Anita Kozyrskyj said that about half the babies had exposure to a furry pet with 70 per cent of those being dogs. Dog in a pill just around the corner??

3. Artichokes are packed with probiotics, which help the brain overcome worry and fear and helps make sleep come easier. Not into artichokes then onions and leeks will help with the same problems.

4. Tie your laces for a stronger knot. – The key is to tie the knot and bow in the opposite directions, not the same. You cross the left lace over the right to knot it, then cross the bow in the opposite way – Right over left.
Must be right because Mechanical engineers from University of California Berkeley in the States came up with this.
Freedom of speech has gone from that University bit at least they share the knowledge.


5.According to the University of Laughborough in the UK soaking in a bath of 40c water temperature, uses as much energy as a 30 minute walk.
Do both!

Poem Friday – 01/23/2015 – Start 2015 Just Right


I love the mornings, best time of the day
With a view like this it starts in a good way

IMG_0533IMG_0572

At this time I was in NZ to see my Mum
And of course ‘Charlie’ her dog love her she is such fun

Her face is so cute, of course communicates in dog talk
Especially when you are about to take her for a walk

Christmas day is a great family tradition
Mutton on spit, motor broke down, turning by hand was the decision

Many a beer had to be drunk while it cooked away
Probably what gave it that great flavor I would say

Went to Mt Ruapahu a four hour trip to see friends
Snow on the mountain, a view from my bed, the beauty never ends

And no that is not cloud coming from Tongariro Mountain
Its volcanic activity, spewing smoke and at times a hot lava fountain

About to leave NZ and go to Australia I call home
Take charlie for his last walk with me, no lead I just let him roam

Now back in Australia where the morning is a beach
I know, a long way from Houston that I miss, I wish my arms could reach

It is such a great pleasure to watch my grandson and son
At the beach together surfing the waves while I go for a run.

Just to end I was lying on the beach sunbaking looking up at the sky
With my new camera I took this picture of the moon, It just looked beautiful that is why

Ate too much at xmas so need to exercise to get fit
Boxing this morning tomorrow these steps, no time to sit

IMG_0636

But at the top is a beautiful sight
Makes you feel good and start 2015 just right

Umm – Not For Me

Pirelli, an amazing walk on Christ The Redeemer

I have an aversion to heights so even watching this makes me dizzy. But just imagine if you had the confidence these guys have, how you would enjoy such a gorgeous view. I am in Awe of their courage and being fearless in their job.
