I recently had the unexpected pleasure of spending five days in a hotel in Brighton. During the last month or two I haven’t been sleeping that well at home, but I put it down to the fact that I have had a lot of stress at work, as well as other things on my mind. However, although I was in Brighton for a work conference, and my stress levels could be considered fairly high, I found myself sleeping extremely well. I woke up feeling rested, and was not experiencing any of the aches and pains I sometimes feel when I wake up at home. I decided to check out the mattress on my hotel bed and found it was a Tempur mattress. A quick search online revealed that this brand is one of the most recommended in the country, and used by many hospitals for recovering accident patients and those who regularly experience a bad back.
I was surprised to see that although more expensive than most brands, Tempur beds are pretty affordable, and I’m going to treat myself to one after the summer holidays.
Ear infections can be very painful and are particularly distressing for children. You will probably find your child has at least one bad earache by the time he is three years old. Ear infections often follow a cold in young children, but fortunately the frequency and severity of ear infections decreases as a child grows.
There are several home remedies for earache that can be more efficient than ear drops purchased from a pharmacy or prescribed by a doctor.
Perhaps the most effective home remedy I have tried for earache is a few drops of colloidal silver placed in the infected area. I have found this remedy to be more effective than ear drops. I gave some to a friend whose daughter had a terrible earache for several days; with a severe infection which did not show any signs of improvement after prescribed medication. Within half an hour after administering the colloidal silver, my friend reported her daughter’s earache disappeared completely.
Fresh raw garlic puréed in a small amount of warm olive oil is another good alternative to ear drops. If you have any garlic capsules, break one open and place a few drops in the infected ear.

Last week I met up with an old friend for a drink, which turned out to be several. She was in need of a shoulder to cry on because this week is the second wedding anniversary, and although Marie and her husband have been trying for a child since a few months before they got married, they have had no success. She has an appointment with the Fertility Clinic, but due to long waiting lists she will not be seen for another five weeks. Needless to say she was very upset because unlike me, it has always been her dream to get married and have a large family.
Now I do not know much about fertility and getting pregnant, but I do know that you should have sex on a very regular basis to increase your chances. I asked my friend how often they were “trying.” I had to try very hard to stop myself from laughing when she told me that on average, they made love around three times a month. I asked if this was at regular intervals; i.e. did they have sex on average every 10 days, or did those three sessions occur around the middle of her cycle when she was most fertile?
She told me it depended largely on her husband’s job. As a sales team manager he often has to spend a large part of the week away from home in other parts of the country conducting sales courses. It seems he is also somewhat a workaholic – he has big ambitions to provide a great home for the family he hopes one day to have. He is also under a lot of stress to meet sales targets, which means he is not always being in the mood for sex. On top of this, my friend says that she finds the frequency that they make love perfectly adequate, as she too often feels tired from her sometimes stressful job as an event coordinator.
It seems between the pair of them, these two are not usually in the mood for having wild sex, and a bit further digging led me to discover that sometimes they go up to two weeks without any sexual contact. I am not surprised that my friends haven’t yet got pregnant, due to their sexual activity, or rather lack thereof.
She told me she was going to ask her boss for fewer hours, and buy some sexy underwear to get her husband in the mood when he comes home late at night and tired.
I hope this works for them!
