VITAMINS


Vitamins work.

Ginkgo Biloba is good for memory; especially for elderly people who have memory problems.

I find a whisky, preferably a triple, or a large rum, does wonders to my well-being.

Until the next morning...

My mum taught me to eat a wide-ranging diet, a little of everything did the trick. Everything we eat is good for us, but only in moderation. Despite raising 3 kids during WWII and another (ikkle me!) in post war London she did a great job, on a limited budget and often hard to get ingredients - banana and pineapple only became available in 1957, for example - I recall most kids spat 'em out as being worse than brussel-sprouts! I did. We all grew up far healthy and far brawnier than most other kids in the neighborhood. Our GP got so fed-up of us never getting sick he used to pop-over for a cuppa and a chat, to chill for a few minutes during an otherwise steressful and hard working-day, just to 'earn' the fee the NHS gave him for us!

A fat-free diet, as most are today, is totally the wrong thing to do, you'll get sick and actually put on weight as the body desperately stores what fat it gets in case things get worse. Scandinavians and Eskimos deliberately eat raw fat as they need it for fight the winter-cold. It's the TYPE of fat - and of course how much - that counts. For, if the body knows it gets all the fat in needs it tends not to store as much. Assuming you exercise enough to continually burn fat, no probbers.

Yes, now an OAP and looking after m'self I'm 20kg overweight. A bad back, 1 lung, and my last job very sedentary with little time to exercise, are my excuse. but I'm working on it now I have all day to walk, laptop in rucksack for when I feel inspired.

We have to find a way to expose and crush these masonic/public-school homofilia/pedophile rings, the pure evil they represent. Having experienced it as a lad, luckily in a benign way, as Aangifan, I'm working on it.
