A Question of Balance

 The lack of posts on the blog has been to a great extent driven by a lack of balance in your bloggist. By coincidence the cover story of this week's edition of the New Scientist is about the fact that the population as a whole is falling over more often and that the problem is occurring at a younger age than ever before. They point the finger at less and less physical movement being undertaken by the bone idle denizens of the modern world, or at least that's what I think it said, but the magazine is on the other side of the room and I can't be bothered to go and get it. I have been placed on a regime of Balance Retraining exercises, about which I shall simply say that it is a good job that I live alone. Yoga has been mentioned, as it frequently is, especially by those who don't do it themselves. However, as I can't currently walk in a straight line, the Revolved Bird of Paradise may be some way off.

Anyway, here's some Sam & Dave, dedicated to the fond memory of those who perform the Downward Dog.


  1. hope you are recovered and back on the high wire soon. Has Meniere's disease been mentioned?
    I never knew Declan MacManus had borrowed from Same amd Dave!

    1. One of my small claims to fame - I have no large claims to fame - is that used to work with Elvis Costello's mum.

      And while Meniere's disease has been put forward as possible, I can't help thinking that it's just a catch-all term for symptoms that no-one can think of any other reason for.
