3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
It's PEANUTS!! I've no doubt. My libido and erectile function are enjoying a revival that only started when I indulged in one of my fave Christmas treats. The clincher was last night - for the first time in years I was up for it after bedtime. Missus of course is as delighted as me! It must be whole roasted peanuts rather than peanut butter, which I eat throughout the year. I will now carry on eating whole peanuts daily, substituting a meal for them. If libido keeps up by the end of January I will have incontestable proof.
Daughter departed on schedule, and much to the delight of Son, the Lounge has been "liberated". Her stay was in one sense a great success - I found that accepting how she is and working around it avoided friction. Daughter herself is unfortunately in a bad way. Her complexion was awful, her morale on the floor. More worrying is that she is utterly oblivious to how selfish she is. After being highly inconsiderate and insensitive to her brother, she was utterly bemused and clueless as to why he was so pissed off. Unfortunately she wouldn't have accepted it if she was told. I fear more suffering awaits her before she finally gets it.

7. NOW THAT'S FUNNY!
Sadly underrated comic genius Simon Evans
Nitrogen comprises 80% of the air and is normally a harmless inert gas. At high pressures however it can dissolve in the blood and become an anaesthetic. This makes atmospheric air completely unusable to deep sea divers as it causes "nitrogen narcosis" also known as "raptures of the deep". Unfortunately pure oxygen is highly toxic at high pressure. The solution is to breathe a mixture of 80% helium and 20% oxygen. Helium has no effect on the body other than to elevate the pitch of your voice, making you sound like Mickey Mouse.
9. THE WISDOM I'VE LEARNED FROM OTHERS
Meditation is the joy to be yourself. Meditation is the courage to be yourself. Meditation will make you unique and will make you rejoice in being different from the others. Meditation is the way to be yourself." - Tishan
