1. ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY
14th October 1888
The earliest surviving motion picture, ROUNDHAY GARDEN SCENE, is made
According to maker Louis Le Prince's son Adolphe, the film was made at Oakwood Grange, the home of Joseph and Sarah Whitley, in Roundhay, Leeds, West Riding of Yorkshire.
At around two minutes long, it features Adolphe Le Prince, Sarah Whitley, Joseph Whitley and Harriet Hartley in the garden, walking around. Sarah is walking backwards as she turns around, and Joseph's coat tails are flying as he also is turning. Sarah Whitley was Le Prince's mother-in-law, being the mother of his wife, Elizabeth. Sarah Whitley died ten days after the scene was taken. It can be seen on YouTube.

3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
I was fortunate in having no clients and being the housekeeper, so I had the option of just shutting down for a day, allowing the parasympathetic nervous system to do its thing! More than ever I am convinced of the importance of bodymind downtime, which actually gives you MORE time as you're that much more efficient and robust when awake.
The fact that I'm happy despite a default self-destructive mind and that I almost never get laid low by an infection is testament to what looking after your mental health can achieve. I will therefore continue to live out and proclaim this gospel of wellbeing!

Who's Line Is It Anyway (US): Colin and Ryan's best bits
Residents of England and Wales have a gun homicide rate 21 times lower than that among white Americans and 215 times lower than that among black Americans. Their gun suicide rate is 47 times lower than that among white Americans. The reason? LESS GUNS IN CIRCULATION!!

You may be ill physically, but as long as your spirit is strong, it most certainly will exert a positive influence on your body.
