Okay so you get a runny nose, or a cold, hardly going to kill you, but tv blasts you with adverts to take medication to get rid of it as soon as possible, a headache, nothing major but most people will reach for the pill box rather than thier inner strength.

Is it any wonder why we have a problem with microscopic organisms getting use to the medication, and it doesn’t help our self defense system either, if they rely on the medication doing all of the work for them your white blood cells are going to become lazy and just not bother.

The only times you should really take medication is when you’re suffering from something that your body cant heal, and you’d be surprised at the injuries your body can heal without medication. Dont give in to the pharmaceutical companies who just want you to buy thier products, they dont actually care about your health. Take a day off, lie in bed and recover with a nice warm drink, its not going to do any harm if you have a day off and relax a little to recover.

I think there should be a call for all over the shelf medical products to be capped, so that only people with a VALID reason for needing medication can obtain it, it would also reduce abuse by drug addicts.

You will have a stronger more healthy body if you dont rely on over the shelf medication.

christmas is actually a pagan festival of a feast for the survival of the winter solstace, not christs birthday. However there is a figure born on this day, but its not christ, its a sun god mithras… so instead of being christmas day its mithras day, it had existed long before christmas, and was always the feast, christians stole it as people already celebrated on that day. Of course later in time there was saint nicolas who is father christmas Santa clause (where saint nicolas was lost in translation somewhere in another country) He was famed for providing gifts for needy children every year. Instead of wearing red though, I believe it was either blue or green he dressed in.

So why am I blabbering on about all of this? Well christmas isnt anything remotely religious, do we do anything religious for this day, its not even christs birthday, and thats a fact, the christians jumped on the bandwagon of a pagan festival, not very christian of them now is it.

Its a day to have a feast with the family, where you can all cook together as a family all your specialities and provide a really good meal, little party foods and snacks that can be left on the table and snacked on through the day with variety being the thing that is called for. And guess what, you dont have to eat just turkey. Why do people eat turkeys? Becauase thats where saint nicolas came from. It should be all about eating food everyone in the family enjoys, having family games and making a big celebration of the day. Giving gifts to people who deserve them just because you want to get them a gift, not because you have to or because you want one back.

I was going to say we should all stop calling it christmas, Im still going to say that, but instead of going with Xmas, as it is Xmas celebrations, (which I will still say use over christmas) but now I know of mithras day, perhaps we should all revert to calling it what it was origonally. People need to know that its always been a day of feasting and celebration long before christianity stole it.

My idea of a good xmas, a day with nice food, party food like beetroot and things available to snack on during the day, a nice cooked meal, and a day playing party games with the family. We dont have a culture of spending lots of time with family so one day of the year would be the right idea. Oh and one important factor is you HAVE to have the cheesy christmas pop hits in the background, worth the cd, really sets the mood for the day.

Seasons greetings and goodwill to you all this mithras (xmas) day.

Take care

Or the apparent home of witty banter. Basically its UKTV:men but they thought that was a bit sexist and couldn’t come up with anything better, as a last resort and as a lame sort of joke someone suggested “dave” as a name for it, obviousely the committee couldn’c come up with something better, and decided to go with dave… at least thats how I think it happened. I’d been suspecting fora while that it was uktv, with all the uktv adverts in there. of course my suspicions were proved right with a quick visit to http://uktv.co.uk/dave

One annoying thing about the channel is if theres nothing else on on the weekend and you’ve put the channel on, and theres “nothing but” something or other, in this case bottom, they will show 3 or 4 episodes of the thing then repeat them again and again throughout the day so that theres no point watching the channel, and you’ve put it on as a last resort anyway due to the fact that theres nothing else on and most of the other freeview channels are just showing repeats of what they’ve had on every other day of the week. But thats for another rant.

The way the channels going, I just see it using up all of its content by christmas, unless they’re going to get some more repeats of olde bbc things, theres only so much there before they’ve completely ran out.
