Sloth pool.

After a few years absence, I've decided to see if I can still swim. The last time I re-booted the swimming external drive, this happened : click here-> Covet Thine Mouth.  How bad could it be this time? Nowhere to go but up I say.

They renovated the old pool! It was the grand opening yesterday. They have added windows. It used to feel like I was drowning in a sarcophagus in there. Now it feels like I am drowning in a nice airy relaxing place. If you're going to die, might as well be in a pleasant room.

They have added new and improved 12 year old lifeguards too! They are lovely little creatures that smile, bounce and flip their hair a lot, so exciting!

I came to find out that RA is an autoimmune disorder that affects the entire body (lungs, kidneys, eyes...) not just the joints and it can start at any age. One doesn't need to test positive for RA (like myself) to have it...But more on all that boring science later.

I used the google. Did you know you can cure cancer with broccoli? I d…
