Aha....Kit rolls in tonight and tomorrow we are off to the old isles....the UK. Good friends are staying and watching over my little fur-buddy Dina and I know she will be in great hands....

So much I want to see and "feel" in England! We will be thorough and will stay in southern England, east to west and back. Some just to see sacred sites and areas and some to see where my very ancient ancestors were rooted.

I wish there was time to take my metal detector along and do some treasure is awesome in the can find Roman artifacts and celtic pieces in the same fields sometimes.... 

An interesting aside is that the DNA retrieved from remains in barrows dated back as far as 4000 years before Roman occupation matches up with DNA from present day citizens. Does that not mean they are indigenous?

I hope to find at least some little connection to early oral traditions and feel something of what my forebears felt...well except for the drunken Laird of the Manor in Shaftsbury of the 1500's....I know enough about the cups!

More later friends and I wish I could take you all with me.

I am going with the belief that I am in the Creator's hands and my health will hold steady throughout the trip.

Be Peace,

Oh yeah...nature...

Ummmmm boy. That was nice....So glad to be able to get through the health stuff enough to camp a couple nights...

It was sweet, a site along the Gila river within a few minutes walk to a nicely built hot pot to soak in.

I enjoyed meeting my brother-in-law's new lady friend....a very nice soul and it was good to camp with him as well.

The photo is of our little camper on the way home....God how I love new Mexico....

Back home and getting ready for our visit to the Isle of Albion....yay...

Be Peace...

Well I goofed again. Not enough caution in what supplements I take...I do have it down to a couple, well-researched by me, supplements now and won't be adding any anytime soon....

I thought I was wise in using cumin as an anti-inflammatory, joint help addition to my diet. I was taking two caps a day one in the morning and one in the evening....

The doc had asked if I took any kind of blood thinner and I had stopped the 81mg aspirin I was taking, so I told him no.

Something finally niggled my hind-brain enough to get my attention though and I did some research on cumin...yikes! WebMD says to not take it if you have any kind of blood issue....who knew? "Ask your healthcare provider" is something that just doesn't ring a bell for me as none of my medical community that Medicare or my excellent insurance covers will tell me much at all about supplements since there is no federal oversight nor any real  research done in the US available for most of them.

So to make a long story shorter, by taking the cumin supplement I was exacerbating my bladder bleeding issue.

This is reminiscent of when my first urologist in Boise, ID asked me to please run anything "supplemental" that I was taking by her since there are elements that actually will mask the markers for the cancer I have and make me think the cancer is "cured" when in fact it isn't and it will grow unchecked.
