Music for the Soul

Being struck down by a rotten cold/flu/virus thingy, I called the doctor who made a home visit - several hours later mind. It being a Sunday and all. I have what the Medicos call URTI - Upper Respitrory Tract Infection. You know, the fancy name given to an infection which doctors don't know what to call! The usual, it's viral, take panadol, get plenty of rest, take it easy, take Vitamin C, put Vicks in a bowl, pour on boiling water, place head over bowl covered with tea towel and inhale.

Actually, URTI's is are the illnesses caused by an acute infection which involves the upper respiratory tract: nose, sinuses, pharynx or larynx. Did you know with this you could have
Rhinitis
Rhinosinusitis
Sinusitis
Nasopharyngitis
Pharyngitis
Epiglottitis
Laryngitis
Laryngotracheitis
Supraglottitis
Tracheitis

Not to mention a touch of the flu! Now I think I feel worse reading all that lot.

I've been listening to some music - well there's only so much time you can spend watching movies in the lounge with the heater on. Not to mention the gas bill. I've been alternating between hot and horrible and cold and shivery. At the moment it's the hot/horrible stage.

Anyway, getting back to music, Youtube comes in very handy doesn't it? Here's what I'm listening to right now -


He always wrote such happy music and this is one of my favourites.

I Have A COLD

 
Winter woes
Isn't it wonderful - the kindness of sick people who are just dying to share with you, and give you what they have?!
A family member was sick as a dog on Monday and Tuesday, and still not 100% on Wednesday. Come Thursday, they're on the mend. And for me - it started on Thursday night - my throat felt a leetle sore.

Friday was the "my throat feels like razor blades" syndrome and you just know your taste buds will be shot to pieces the next day. So it was and so on the Friday I decided on having "junk food" for tea. After all I reasoned, I wouldn't be able to taste it or anything else much the next day. And so it proved.

Today, Saturday, sees me with the full works and getting progeessingly worse as the day wore on. The razor blades had thankfully removed themselves from my throat, but the taste buds are gone - can't taste a thing really. And the nose - it alternates between blocked and stuffy and running like a tap. But blocked seems to be the winner.

Sneezes too, and those rings of heavy fire going around in circles around the eyes. Lethargic and energy-less. I rarely get sick. And I don't much like it when I do. I just wish this heavy infestation of being an incubus of viral plague would go away.
It is now early Sunday morning and I need some TLC. Which I won't get. Mums aren't supposed to get sick - right?

War: When Will We Learn?

Two young Australian soldiers died in Afghanistan. Sapper Jacob Moerland, 21, and Darren Smith, 26, from the 2nd Combat Engineer Regiment were killed while on patrol. It was Jacob Moerland's first overseas deployment. He was 21 and engaged to be married. Darren Smith had a wife and young son in Brisbane. This was his first deployment too. He was a handler for an explosives detection dog named Herbie who also died.

Why are we there? To stop the Taliban? Or is it about oil? Protecting "interests".
What will it achieve? Things will remain the same. Women will still be kept in submission, human rights - what human rights? 6o - 80 % of women are forced into marriage. Countries send in armies and young men will die and nothing will change.

That is the real tragedy.



Have we learnt nothing?

What The??

Well! Today I thought to set up a blog title for my next trip and not knowing which one I actually wanted, or rather thought would look better did a couple. The blog title I thought looked best - I couldn't use that for the URL, obviously it has been taken. So I chagned the blog title so it reads the same as the url. That's fine. Next, I thought to do another for aanother place I'm going to, that's fine too.
But, when I decided to set up a third one, I struck trouble. I get a message asking me to verify my identity and putting down my mobile phone. Problem is, I don't have a mobile phone and have to decide which family member's one to use.

Weird eh? Vewry strange.....
