THE GAP by Ira Glass from frohlocke on Vimeo. I don't know about you, but I question what I create all the time. The little voice, or the big one, in the back of my head tells me it is not good enough, it is not 'perfect', why did I try? I have been put off so many times, because I think my work is not good enough, or I compare it to someone I know and I get put off... ...but this year I am trying to be different....walking to the beat of my own drum!! I have always done this, slightly alternative, but always trying to conform to the norms, but not now. I listened to the above tape, then went into the original, following the Vimeo links, and as a result I have been busy - very busy!! I have crocheted, sewn, designed, carded wool, dyed, spun - re from the other video - ' I HAVE BEEN A WARRIOR!!!!'
PLEASE NOTE!! I was given the info IN THE PREVIOUS POST from a very reliable person. As a result I did not check the info, but one of my other friends did and she sent me the following message.
I saw this posted elsewhere, and thought it would be really good information for everybody to know.
HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN YOU ARE ALONE??
Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack, without help,the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before l...osing consciousness.
However,these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously. A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest.
A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again.
Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can get to a hospital. Tell as many other people as possible about this. It could save their lives!!
A cardiologist says If everyone who sees this post shares it to 10 people, you can bet that we'll save at least one life..
Rather than sharing jokes only please contribute by forwarding this info which can save a person's life.
I want to thank all my readers for reading this blog and putting up with my nonsense! 2013 was not a particularly good year for our family, but I have a feeling 2014 is going to be GREAT!! A very happy, healthy, prosperous New Year to all of you!
I am sitting here stuffed with turkey and trifle, and just wanted to wish all my readers a Merry Christmas. We have had some severe storms and very high winds recently, the sea breached the road again, but we are snug and warm and have had a wonderful day. The family have all phoned/Skyped, and we are now sitting watching the 'box', having a glass of homemade wine.
