Mowing myself healthy

I’m sure the my life as a freelance web-designer isn’t the best for my health. I’m getting RSI from long hours using a mouse and keyboard, I’m sure sitting in the same office chair all day isn’t good for my back and no doubt my eyesight isn’t getting any better staring at these computer monitors...

Mother is Always Right

Really I guess that title should say, Mother, Wife and Mother-in-Law are always right! They’ve been nagging at me for a while to go to the doctors for a general check-up as my family history doesn’t make great reading: High blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, heart attacks and cancer all feature highly in the medical...
