Starkers in the kitchen....

Apparently, vitiligo (and a very small number of other conditions), glow in the dark and is a way dermatologists check your skin to rule out other conditions. Mine is vitiligo as it glows differently to the other conditions.

DB got his UV black lamp out and when dark, I stood naked in the kitchen for him to check me over. I lit up like a Christmas tree when you first start putting the lights on it!

Several small patches on my neck and shoulders, some tiny ones near my chin and a host over my arms and hands.

I might do it again tonight and see if I can get a reference picture to track it’s progress. The site I read also suggests you keep away from disco’s that use these lights otherwise more than just your white clothing lights up!

That won’t be a problem then.

With blogger messing about so much at the moment, you need to back up your blog constantly. Pictures and videos are downloaded seperately. If you don't understand how to do it, here is how.

On your dashboard:

Go to settings and choose other:
When you do, this screen will appear - select back up content:
Then save to your computer. I then get this screen and select save file:
Mine saves in downloads like this - yours may look different:
This article is very good http://www.bloggertipspro.com/2018/11/how-to-backup-your-blogger-site.html.

As well as all the above I have shown, it also helps you download all your pictures and videos. These used to be stored in your picasa album but that no longer works.

Long winded journey

We left home to look at a garden gate. Nothing the right size but a quick visit nonetheless. All the main roads were heaving by now, people on their way to beaches?

Anyhow, had garden waste to go to the tip, got there eventually at 09:55. Small queue, one out one in operating. Got out 10:20.

We had a long list of other things to do but traffic was almost at a standstill. Took some back roads home, calling in at FarmFoods. Got 28 Magnum for £14, some spicy chicken breasts, 4 x 1/2lb butter @ 99p each and a 6 pack of tuna on special offer £3.49, great value.

One woman came out with 36 toilet rolls. I really hope that nonsense isn’t starting up again!
