4. There is a new device to help prevent migraines. It is called Cefaly, it electrically zaps nerves in the forehead that are thought to be linked to the source of the debilitating headaches. They say at least 36 million Americans suffer from these headaches. Cefaly is positioned on the forehead using an adhesive electrode. Precise impulses are produced, which act on the trigeminal nerve in order to reduce pain and prevent migraine attacks.

5. Did you know that in warmer weather,  tires lose air at a higher rate, reducing gas mileage and decreasing their life span. I also causes battery failure so make sure you top off the fluid and clean corrosion from the terminals and make sure the cables are tightly connected. When possible always park your car in the shade. These are good tips for those of us that lives in Texas.

Back On The Job Again

So sorry that I have been so neglectful of my Blog Site. On my way back from Australia I called into New Zealand to stay with my Mum and Charlie (the Dog) for three weeks. All my time taken up. Will catch up with a few photo’s when I get settled. I am now at the Sydney Airport waiting for my flight to Dallas. Love Texas. This trip I will be riding a new Harley which is the same model as ‘Bobby’. I have named this one ‘Robert’. Cant wait to get bum on seat and test it on the road. Bobby arrived in Australia safely and only had a chance to ride it twice and the rest of the time it rained so was a little uncomfortable to be riding on those roads in the rain.

Talking about weather I was sent this the other day. Thought it was quite funny

This was also sent to me which I thought was rather apt. I have come to the conclusion that it is too much bother to be chasing organic and for what? So you can pay higher prices and feel good about it.

Non-organic vs. organic food

Well that’s it for me for now as I am about to partake in a class of wine. It is 12 o’clock somewhere in the world
