Sally Cronin discusses pre-diabetes, which can be controlled by diet and a bit of healthy exercise. She also gives no nonsense info. on the kinds of foods we need, and the ones we should treat with great caution.
I’ve realised my healthy diet is maybe not as healthy as I thought it was. My addiction to Salada biscuits could have something to do with it… -sigh-
Excellent advice about online security from Jacqui Murray. We all use social media, especially during this pandemic, but the big tech giants make their money from selling our info to the ad networks. They’ve turned us into their ‘product’.
Jacqui Murray outlines some simple things you can do to protect your loved ones even if you don’t think you have ‘anything to hide’.

For those of you who don’t know Sue Vincent, she’s one of those special bloggers in our community who inspires people all over the world with her beautiful posts and #writephoto prompts. Sue has tirelessly supported other bloggers and it shows. She now has 19,000 followers and counting.
Recently, Sue encountered a new and difficult challenge: lung cancer. To make matters worse, the Covid-19 pandemic not only poses a serious threat to someone with a severe respiratory illness but has resulted in the loss of human connection when it’s needed most.
Now it’s time for Sue to receive something back from the community she’s supported for a decade. Let’s come together with hearts full of joy.
Seriously, who hasn’t had the flying dream? I had them quite a few times as a child, and I remember thinking [in the dream] that it was so easy, I’d have to remember how to do it ‘when I woke up’.

I found a how-to video of sorts that’s kind of interesting:
Okay, that’s enough play time for me. I’ll write the last Favourite Bits post for The Godsend…tomorrow. 🙂
