A good day today –another day sorting all my clothes out. I have made the wardrobe’s either side of the bed a his and here everyday clothes and the big wardrobe is half and half of our best clothes.
Ray can just get into his suit so he can wear that to the Conference on the 17th May at the Hilton Hotel Maidstone, mind you after he has eaten the lovely food they serve at these meetings the top button of his trousers will be undone. ha ha !! better take one of these
We went for a nice walk in the sun to Seasalter Old church and into the field there for Louis to run off lead, running back and forward between Ray and I–well it wore him out so he was so good when two smaller dogs ran into the field and he had mates to talk and play with.
All afternoon I have been watching the rerun of Downtown Abbey http://www.itv.com/dramapremieres/downtonabbey/
A wonderful Period drama and I was glued again in front of the telly all the up stairs down stairs was very interesting .
A Good day
Somebody is talking sense at last
A recent article in the journal of Environmental Health Perspectives estimated that for every four to five people worldwide who are diagnosed with mesothelioma, at least one case goes unreported. The mesothelioma attorney said even that number under counts the true death toll of mesothelioma.
In a statement, Joseph W. Belluck said that mesothelioma is a deadly disease that has been underestimated for too long. Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer, which involves the protective lining that covers several internal body organs such as the pleura, abdomen and the heart. It is commonly caused by excessive exposure to asbestos.
Asbestos, on the other hand, is a naturally occurring mineral that became increasingly popular during the 19th and 20th centuries in a variety of building construction materials for insulation and as a fire-retardant. People who work in industries that mine, make or use asbestos products and those living near these industries commonly develop significant health problems attributed to the exposure.
Belluck said that asbestos-related diseases are more prevalent than many people suspect. Even today, asbestos remains widespread in New York and in other places in the world where there are thousands of people at risk of developing mesothelioma. Although some said that asbestos is not harmful to health unless destroyed and disturbed, recent studies still proved that people exposed to asbestos can easily acquire this disease.
In the United States, approximately 36,500 deaths occurred from 1994 to 2008 out of 174,000 mesothelioma deaths recorded worldwide. Recent studies said that approximately 38,900 mesothelioma deaths worldwide have not been reported. Belluck said that the figures are disturbing, but not surprising.
Mavis said hey Ray the dog wants a walk. No he doesnt, I said. YES he does she said. I took him out twice he didnt go. Well he does now. OK OK so its coat on because its quite fresh outside. So off we go down to his favourite piece of grass. He walks slowly onto the grass sniffing each blade of grass. He walks forward a foot or so stops, sniffs for ages. On we move again sniff, then we walk round in circles, 3 or 4 circles around me. Stop Ah, its time,,, no its not off we go again sniff sniff. More circles. Stop raise one leg yes! wait no off we go again more sniffs, stop move on ,move back, stop, off forward again round and round and round and round and round blimey, I am giddy now round and round stop, sniff crouch, but wait again its not quite right off, we move again. by now I am cold bored and getting angry. For gods sake just P cant you. But he is oblivious of my growing impatience. Off we move again, a few steps forward, a few steps back, round we go again in more circles. But now this area is of no interest to him so he decides now the grass and smells are much better right over the other side so he pulls on his lead and I am directed accross the grass. Now we begin again sniff stop then his nose is glued to a particular blade of grass for ages, but its not the one so off we go again. More circles backwards forwards, Right thats it but wow one leg raised then the wind blows thats it off we go again several minutes later he finds the right blade of grass this could be it .Then a car goes by so thats it off he goes again. I say OK louis thats it back home Ive had enough so I pull his lead and off we go . As we pass the grass that we spent ages sniffing 10 minutes ago sudenly seems to be the right spot and at last a quick crouch and its done at last. With that he trots off in the direction of home. This is a ritual that I perform almost every night. Why do they do it. back indoors has he been mavis asks. Yes all done I say. Doors closed and lockef for the night. We will be doing this again tomorrow.
