Foods that don’t rot?

I’ve recently seen an imprecation not to each anything incapable of rotting (Linky thing to a Facebook photo). Now, the only food that I can think of that doesn’t go off is honey. Can anyone else think of a food that doesn’t rot? Or am I being a tad too literal?

I think we can exclude those items used purely as entertainment – you know the ones, fire, swords, light bulbs and the like – don’t you?

Sometimes I forget...

...just how lucky I am to live in scenic (but dull as hell) Worcestershire. But then I just have to take a short walk from my house and I'm confronted with...

Slightly embarrassed that I forgot to attach the picture, hey ho tho' life goes on.

Supportive Post

Apparently I’m not supportive enough. So, here goes…attempt number 1.


This is a screen shot of an Internet Explorer 11 address bar whilst attempting to use the login page. What’s missing from this picture? Got it yet? that’s right the padlock icon to the right of the URL indicating that information passing between your PC and the web server is being protected by encryption. It’s absence means that whatever leaves your PC can be intercepted by anyone wanting to find out things about you.

Although the recommendation is that people use different passwords for different sites; it is still relatively common for people to use the same password – meaning that if you are, say, using the same password as you do for your electronic banking then it would be a relatively simple process to jump the first hurdle into exploring your financial affairs.

As an example, below is a segment of a screen shot of a packet sniffer tracing an attempted logon to the above site:


So, a salutary lesson there. Ensure you do use different passwords especially when using social media sites that won’t protect your credentials when logging into them. Before we go any further this forum is no worse than DCUK or any of the other fora that you may or may not use.

Long time, no see

Some of you may have been wondering where I'd disappeared to, others may have been  glad  that I had disappeared. The truth of the matter is that I have been rather busy at work, having a good time with my family,  and getting used to a new medication regime.

Work relaxes in a few days time,  and I am going to take the first proper holiday in  will have had in what feels like eighteen months. In addition,  it has been brought to my attention that there  is a new blogger out there  who appears to have caught the true measure of my old buddy Edie... Ladies and gentlemen I'd like to introduced you to Paul Jones, who can be found at Paul Jones The Devils Advocate

Eat your heart out Gillian

This made me laugh, loud and long... Friday Weird Science - Fatty feces or gassy guano. Somebody actually took the time out to perform this study, so of course we should take it seriously. Hat Tip to Nigel for pointing it out :)

Says it all really...

The way I see it, when people attack me, or what I hold to be true, through years of personal experience, the same applies to countless diabetics I know or know of. When bitter and jealous dullards take on people who have become friends such as Jimmy Moore, who has helped me and countless others, I am going on the attack, big time. For me this is total war, no Queensbury rules, no prisoners, no mercy shown or expected. Ludicrous dietary information killed off members of my family. They would expect nothing less from me. The fight goes on !

Which goes to show that it really isn't worth having a reasoned discussion with the man really, as soon as you disagree with him it becomes "total war". And he wonders why I wouldn't accept his invitation for a face-to-face.
