10 years ago I first blogged about getting glasses . I’ve just ordered my 4th pair of glasses. When you buy new glasses the first step is to scan your old glasses to use that as a base point for assessing your eyes, instead of going in cold and trying lots of different lenses they […]
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
In early 2010 I wrote about Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, I gave a picture of the wrist brace and a description of the process of creating it .
A few months later I wrote a follow-up about how the wrist brace had helped me, at the time I was anticipating wearing it at […]
About 10 years ago I started using an electric shaver. An electric shaver is more convenient to use as it doesn’t require any soap, foam, or water. It is also almost impossible to cut yourself properly with an electric shaver which is a major benefit for anyone who’s not particularly alert in the morning. Generally […]
The above two pictures show me holding a Samsung Galaxy S3 which has a 4.8″ display in my left hand and a Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 which has a 4.0″ display in my right hand. I am holding both phones in a manner that allows me to touch the top opposite corner with my […]

Eric Topol gave an interesting TED talk about wireless medical monitoring devices . The potential for helping diabetics and other people who need ongoing treatment is obvious as is the potential for helping pregnant women and other people who might suddenly need medical treatment at short notice.
One significant positive potential for this […]
A few weeks ago I was referred to a specialist for the treatment of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. I first noticed the symptoms in early January, it started happening at night with a partial numbness in the fingers of my left hand. I didn’t think much of it at first as it’s the expected […]
In a previous post I referenced Elaine Morgan’s Aquatic Ape theory .
Simon Waters pointed out that the AquaticApe.org site which exists to analyse all the evidence about such issues . Based on that I am convinced that the Aquatic Ape theory has little merit.
My mistake was to put too much faith in the […]
Update: I am now convinced that the Aquatic Ape theory is wrong . So much of this post is irrelevant. But I still believe that we should be uplifting animals.
Elaine Morgan gave an interesting TED talk about human evolution and the theory that our ancestors lived in the water . The aquatic ape theory […]
