Thursday…Smorgasbord Health Column – Common Conditions A-Z – Working from Home – Backache by Sally Cronin.

Health Column

Backache is something which many of you can relate to or know someone who is a sufferer…

“Low back pain is the single biggest cause of years lived with disability worldwide, and a major challenge to international health systems. In 2018, the Lancet Low Back Pain Series Working Group identified a global problem of mismanagement of low back pain.” WHO

Fruity Friday…It’s a date!

No, not that kind BUT for the sweet delicious dates that pair wonderfully with bacon or blue cheese or just adds that touch of sweetness to a Moroccan Tagine…

Although and this is where I am having a little rant…the number of sad men who trawl FB and Instagram and even Linked In now is increasing…what with the big increase in spam which has to be checked …DAILY …as some of my regular followers seem to end up there at WP’S whim…I block, report ALL of you…

Saturday Snippets…

I struggled this week with Saturday Snippets…I think that what is happening around the world is beginning to get to me…But I will give myself a good talking to and see if get my mojo back…I miss my mum she is 90 years old next week we will have to do as many are doing and talk by phone unless I can get someone to set up a video link…

Have a wonderful Sunday..please be well and stay safe…xxx

That’s all for this week’s roundup … fewer posts have made my stats boom…go figure… I do hope you have enjoyed it and I look forward to your comments xx

God bless you all in these turbulent times…especially those of my readers who are facing new lockdowns…Please stay safe and wear your mask and practise social distancing or this virus will not go away…x

When this is all over my hope for the future is a cleaner world… I do want to see communities, and caring for your neighbour becoming the new norm…WORKING TOGETHER INSTEAD OF WORKING AGAINST EACH OTHER…Being kind to each other…Loving someone whatever their religion or skin colour…Can we make this happen? We have to but in the right way…Are we willing to make a stand? Personally, I would love to see lessons learned..realistically I have my doubts…

Thank you for reading be well and stay safe xxx

About Carol Taylor: Enjoying life in The Land Of Smiles I am having so much fun researching, finding new, authentic recipes both Thai and International to share with you. New recipes gleaned from those who I have met on my travels or are just passing through and stopped for a while. I hope you enjoy them.

I love shopping at the local markets, finding fresh, natural ingredients, new strange fruits and vegetable ones I have never seen or cooked with. I am generally the only European person and attract much attention and I love to try what I am offered and when I smile and say Aroy or Saab as it is here in the north I am met with much smiling.

Some of my recipes may not be in line with traditional ingredients and methods of cooking but are recipes I know and have become to love and maybe if you dare to try you will too. You will always get more than just a recipe from me as I love to research and find out what other properties the ingredients I use contain to improve our health and well being.

Exciting for me hence the title of my blog, Retired No One Told Me! I am having a wonderful ride and don’t want to get off, so if you wish to follow me on my adventures, then welcome! I hope you enjoy the ride also and if it encourages you to take a step into the unknown or untried, you know you want to…Then, I will be happy!

Thank you once again for reading this post I hope you all stay safe and healthy xx
