    The Soul

    Not so as you are damaging the brain that is a mere "receiver". The "transmitter" will continue to send signals to the receiver but the receiver will no longer be able to act on the information and instructions due to the damage.

    Immigrating to the UK

    Health wise we left SA just in time. Soon after getting pre settled status my wife and I had to go for total bloodwork tests. A few days later my wife had to go for a mammogram. Then in the post we both received a parcel with a poo sample kit which we posted off. A colonoscopy is done if blood...

    Where to Clear my mind in Cape Town?

    Go to the World of Birds in Houtbay and sit inside the large aviary where the tiny monkeys sit on your head and climb into your pockets. The small colourful birds flutter around you and tweet their songs. Spend the day there as it is so soul soothing. Or go fishing.

    High levels of uranium found in Joburg residents

    After some decades of uranium mining, Canada, South Africa and Australia has not a single adverse medical case of radiation poisoning. The reason is that the "yellow cake" concentrate is not radioactive enough to cause problems. It is as dangerous as working with lead...

    High levels of uranium found in Joburg residents

    I worked at Chemwes, a uranium enrichment factory in Stilfontein for 8 years. My section was dispatch where we used drum filters to separate the warm liquid from the yellow putty. It was indoors so the uranium filled moisture in the air was thick and we breathed it in. We also constantly played...

    Heart palps, fibs and tachycardia.

    When I was in SA the heart specialist at the Potch private hospital fitted a 7 day holter to my arm to catch the tachy and palpitations but it never happened so he could not make an accurate diagnosis. Treated for anxiety with prozac and xanor. Geez, I could crap my pants in Pick n Pay and it...

    Heart palps, fibs and tachycardia.

    Woke up at midnight last night with bad chest pain and tachycardia. Coughing did not help so my wife got me an aspirin and an alprazolam. After 15 minutes I did some sit ups and it reversed. Slept like a baby until 09.30. Been sucking on Rennies most of the day and still have pain at 4 on the...

    Immigrating to the UK

    Ordered 2 SIM cards and Royal Mail delivered them the next day much to our surprise as we are not used to such service. They even deliver on Saturdays. Buy stuff online before 2 pm and it arrives the next day - seven days a week. Many people buy all their groceries online here these days.

    Heart palps, fibs and tachycardia.

    I too have an anxiety disorder with panic attacks but thankfully the panic attacks stopped some years ago. Now when I get anxious I get heart flutters or what feels like skipped beats when checking my pulse. These can occur up to 15 times a minute and when 2 occur in tandem it totally confuses...

    Satrix 40 growth

    What nonsense to say that holding only STX40 is having all your eggs in one basket. You have 40 eggs in that basket. That is the same as holding 40 different stocks. What I don't like about the STX40 is that it is not equally weighted so the performance of ABInBev, British American Tobacco and...

    We pay £ 950 pm for a 3 bed house in the Cotswold which is a more expensive area as it is called "The garden of England" and Prince Charles has his estate Highgrove and his farm store here in our town of Tetbury. A similar home in a village outside of the Cotswold would be about £ 850 pm...

    Immigrating to the UK

    Me - EU and wife - South African, were given pre-settled status today. So easy. We have no fixed abode and they never asked either of us for our financial situation. We were worried about this but had to apply early before Boris takes over and makes things more difficult for immigrants.

    Travelling to non Schengen EU countries using a Schengen visa

    All the websites I looked at states the same as Wiki. Quote: Of the six EU members that are not part of the Schengen Area, four—Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, and Romania—are legally obliged to join the area in the future, while the other two—Ireland and the United Kingdom—maintain opt-outs. End...

    Stanford study suggests e-cigarette flavorings can damage blood vessel cells

    Those tests at Stanford were debunked and found to be hogwash. Cinnamon is known to have many beneficial benefits as an anti inflammatory and in cardio vascular diseases. It is also used in foods. So mixing it in glycol and/or glycerine which is an "inert" base or carrier liquid used to bulk up...
