57.5 Degrees of Pain
Got a bit behind here, but to go back a few days it's sobering to think that I've nearly reached the average life expectancy for men in certain parts of Glasgow.

I had a colonoscopy once. The Picolax said it could take up to 2 hours to start working. I went off immediately, it's like rocket fuel! :-o

3M (aka MarkyMarkMark)
Now there's something to look forward to.... *

I've just returned from a regular eye test (free because I'm so old! ;-) )
In the last 2 years my eyesight has improved! The rest of my test was normal, so the optician thinks it's probably just the way my genes are coded - but she wants me back in a year instead of two years just to make sure there;s nothing else going on.

* not!

Thanks for the article pointer. It's worth a read, ideally for everyone that is not on Fetch!
