3. TODAY IN MY LIFE
Son's cancelled trip to see buddies put the kibosh on mine and Missus' intended afternoon of passion, but instead had a great bonding day with Son. With his help our Cherry Tree is no longer threatening to tap on the windows, invade the neighbours or attack passing cars.
In various crises in the past, I learned this simple spiritual exercise: right here and right now, are you in imminent danger? If not, then once again the universe has looked after you and will continue to do so! I'm not in a crisis right now - far from it, but when I experience a twang of worry, I still find this exercise useful in grounding myself back into the present. It is regular mental and spiritual disciplines and practices that have brought me to this blissful place, and it is they that will keep me here!

The Very Best of Frankie Boyle On Mock The Week
Influenza is endemic amongst mankind worldwide. On an average year 3 - 5 million people become infected and 250,000 - 500,000 die.
More deadly strains of flu tend to be less successful as they kill or incapacitate more people, which means that they cannot walk around and infect more victims.
The world's biggest killer disease is Malaria. Depending on mosquitoes to spread itself, and injected directly into the victim's bloodstream, it thrives in wet tropical areas on the poor who do not have the resources to prevent or treat it. This means that 90% of malaria cases occur in Africa. In 2012 there were 23 million recorded cases and 660,000 recorded deaths from Malaria, but many times that go unrecorded.
