High cholesterol

When i went to see an eye doctor recently he told me - by looking in my eyes - i might have high cholestrol and to get a blood test, so i have had a blood test and to my surprise i have got a high cholestral count, so now i have got to make sure i eat the right things, it is not as if i have a bad diet at present. So we will see what happens when i go back for another test in 3 months time.

The Night of the Flying Ant

Sitting on the balcony having a glass of wine and a chat when we noticed a few more insects around the lights than we normally get, these got more and more, untill they were like a cloud, we retired into the apartment to find they were getting inside under the sliding doors and any space they could. These flying ant swarms last 4 hours or more and outside, covered the walls and pavements. In the morning there were millions and millions of dead flying ants layering the ground throughout the area. An interesting thing is there were no insect eating creatures, like bats, evident during the swarm.
