Pain Pals

Welcome to another week and to some more great blog posts!  It has been a busy week in our household and some of you might have seen my post about moving one son home and the other off to university.  Funny how Duncan and I have both woken up with splitting headaches this morning…..the only extra comment today on the move to Nottingham, is how can a supposedly bright young man arrive in his room at university and have not packed a single pen in his luggage??

We have also celebrated my daughter’s birthday this week and we did wonder what we were letting ourselves in for when we agreed that she and her friends could have an evening at home….pizza, popcorn, films.  Eleven girls, aged 15 & 16, on a school night – how hard could it possibly be?  Actually it was easy….but extremely loud!  The girls restored my…

Smorgasbord - Variety is the spice of life

Welcome to this week’s round up and a week of two halves. One half had failing internet, which like a dodgy hair piece, was all over the place for four days. On for 10 minutes and then off for 20 minutes and variations along that theme. Thankfully I had scheduled posts so that I could take a writing break, but it was frustrating to say the least.  The good half of the week is that I got on with Tales from an Irish Garden and made good progress.. A way to go yet, but it will get there in its own good time.

Apart from that I was lucky to have great guests and their contributions to entertain you, and I am very grateful for their time and effort.

William Price King provided us an insight into the career and music of Sir Tom Jones in the mid 1960’s for…

Smorgasbord Health 2017 – Leprosy (Hansen’s Disease) – A modern miracle.

Smorgasbord Health 2017LEPROSY (Hansen’s Disease)

The mere mention of the word leprosy strikes fear into most people – probably because of the images we have seen over the years of sufferers, stigmatised and restricted to colonies where many of them died before treatments became available.

There have been some recent cases in the UK and Ireland but all have been treated successfully and were diagnosed in patients who had lived abroad from several years in countries where the disease still exists. There were three cases reported in 2015 in Florida and two were linked to the nine-banded Armadillo, a native of South USA, that is suspected of carrying the bacteria.


Leprosy is a chronically infectious bacterial disease caused by Mycobacterium leprae, which was identified in 1873 by Leprosy also known as Hansen’s disease, after Armauer Hansen, the Norwegian physician who first identified the micro-organism. He was the first scientist…

Eating healthy won’t break your wallet!

It is lovely to see another post where they promote healthy eating and show how you can do it and it needn’t cost an arm and a leg…


Does eating healthy have to be expensive? It is true that some food that are marketed as “organic”, and some food with more superior brand names can be more costly than others, however, there are tips to eating healthy and without breaking your wallet! Check out my top 6 tips to eating healthy on a budget.

Eat as much home-cooked food as possible. A typical restaurant meal usually costs around 30 to 50 dollars. With this amount of money, you can buy up to 2 to 3 days of healthy grocery depending on how big your family is. Also, eating at home allows you to avoid processed ingredients more easily. It allows you full control over what you eat, and allows you to choose the flavours you prefer.

Buy Ugly Produce. “Ugly” or “Blemished” is the industry term for cosmetically imperfect produce such as dented potatoes, curvy carrots and blemished…
