This Is My Yukky Day!

Hi,

.

So it is Wednesday….so far so good….but today I have my first visit to a new dentist…so, not so good now!

.

Along with most of you, a visit to the dentist’s is not my idea of a fun happening, most especially not with a new one….and you have decide who to choose first!

I mean, I checked on-line to find this one, and there were many fulsome comments on his site from incredibly well satisfied customers, but for all I know he may have written them himself….or he may be a modern version of Sweeney Todd the barber, and I may end up in his next batch of hot pies.

Anyway, these  particular professionals are a necessary evil, a bit like taxes, and not going to see them is an even worse idea than actually biting the bullet and going.

So, at least I will be over my present nerves by tomorrow….until the next time that is!

.

Talking about things being modern.

How the hell are we seemingly sliding back down into the dark ages again in some ways.

Like my previous posts about bed bugs, which are now becoming a plague all over the place again.

Like cockroaches, which are even making their presence known to horrified passengers on planes.

.

It is reported that an irate American couple are suing Air Tran Airways at the moment.

This is because while they were on their flight from Charlotte to Houston, on 15th September, they were horrified to find that cockroaches were travelling along beside them, moving about from the air vents and overhead luggage racks.

.

Then you get the recent report upon the habits of the British when it comes to washing and changing their bedding.

According to the Annual Bed Bug Audit, carried out by Sheilas’ Wheels, people are now saving money by changing their sheets far less regularly then once a week, in some cases regularly leaving it for a month or two before doing so.

In fact it was said that 1-in-8 people asked were changing their bedlinen at more than monthly intervals.

.

This is a nice picture when allied to the modern habit of eating in bed while watching the television etc.

.

You do not need an overactive imagination to add year round central heating to that particular sum before you see that the results will be infestations of bedbugs and other ancient and unwelcome house guests.

.

When you think that previously eradicated diseases such as tuberculosis and rickets are making a strong come-back, then the picture is really horrifying indeed.

.

And that is not all.

Because of the number of the modern travellers who regularly make their way to far-off and extremely exotic places, we are getting other creatures who have come back with them to make a home in the UK.

This may have happened before in the past a few times, but now it is getting very very real.

.

Reportedly, we have got poisonous foreign spiders living here now, and the obvious danger is that UK doctors will not suspect such a creature of being the culprit when people suddenly collapse….and would there be anti-venom available in time anyway!

This is apparently true with regard to tarantulas and snakes too!

There are also said to be malaria-carrying mosquito’s near airports!

.

Whoahhh, it is getting scary here or what!

.

Good, now that is two of us who are feeling a little queasy now, but at least you are probably not having to go to the dentist’s ….so be grateful for that!

J,x.
