A few random thoughts:
1. Have you noticed that blogs that have installed the new templates from Blogger load more slowly - scroll tempermentally - and occasionally freeze? Sometimes all those new options make for a frustrating experience.
2. I have learned my lesson about using a saucy, irreverant, double-entendre title for a post. (Don't bother scrolling down for it - I have changed it.) Why did it not occur to me that it could attract some off-the-wall types? Helllllllooooooo!
3. Are all your favorite go-to-professionals getting ready to retire? Our family dentist retired a year or so ago and we have not had the same quality care from the dentist who bought his practice. Now our family doctor is making noises about retirement - suddenly we are having to ask around and shop around for replacements ... and you cannot always get on their roster. And here I thought I was through having to shop around for doctors, dentists, hairdressers, handymen, electricians, etc.
4. Had a urinary tract infection (UTI) over the weekend and just before trotting off to the aforementionned family doctor, I decided to look up some natural remedies on EarthClinic.com. There is one contributor there, a man named 'Ted' who must be a former M.D. or a chemist or something - because he has the best suggestions with a lot of facts to back them up. (Anyway, if you ever go to that site watch for Ted's tips on what to do for any number of ailments.)
He (Ted) suggested drinking a one time dose of a teaspoon of sea salt in a cup of water for UTIs. I decided it could not hurt, did it, and experienced almost immediate (within 15 minutes!) relief that has lasted for almost 36 hours so far! The salt water was not too offensive ... and I am thrilled to not be in pain and not experiencing chills. Give earthclinic.com a try for anything that is not super serious - and use your own good judgment about what tips you follow.
That's it for now. Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate each and every one of your visits and, of course, your comments.
