One week in

Elbow is playing on the HiFi and I’m sitting on the apartment balcony watching lightning over Lake Ontario. The video doesn’t do it justice. It’s quite something to watch. So I’ve been in Canada for a week now, and apart from missing my family I’ve really enjoyed myself. I’ve met old friends, made some new […]

Another reason to eat chocolate

It’s been a long time since my last post. Too long. Longer than I ever intended. The spring and summer have been busy, resulting in me not really feeling like I had time to write anything, which is of course rubbish as today’s post will prove. I know I’ve talked about it before, but I […]

Yay for coconut oil

Just a quick post. I came across this interesting article on the BBC News website. The long and short of it is that scientists have found that coconut oil inhibits the growth of Streptococcus bacteria, which is a common bacteria in the mouth.
