Ba Humbug - fancy someone daring to do fireworks on New Year's Eve I saw the lovely display in Sydney on the tv.  London looked nice tonight at midnight too.  Fireworks wouldn't have bothered me, as I'm a night owl, but my New Year's resolution is to get to bed by midnight.  I made the same one last year and it never worked, so watch this space...Absolutely hated it when I fell asleep without the mask though... I used to do it in the early days when I read my book in bed before putting the mask on.  Now I read on my Kindle with big fonts with the mask safely in place.  Happy New Year!

Social Media marketing is another ball game really. You really need someone that knows all the platforms in depth and the key is a good sound strategy. We use Facebook,Pinterest,You Tube,Twitter and Google Plus is another we are just starting with. Annie Infinite is an absolute gem. Any hoozle it sounds like you have an amazing job......you know i have just realised you are a man! I thought i had been chatting to a lady! LOL! As for medications and other stuff would rather not chat about that openly on a forum. Happy to share by email though.

This discussion is reminding me of a funny post I put on Pinterest (yes, yet another place people like to be Terry   Here's the link http://pinterest.com/pin/87398048990369118/

I wasn't a lover of Facebook myself, but I've realised just how valuable it is to communicate with people.  I use all the different social media sites so I can help people in the place they feel more comfortable.  There are lots of people who are uncomfortable in forums too.  We have hundreds of visitors every day, but not everyone joins.  At least they're getting help though

How very interesting, well if you need anyone to help you with strategy i know an amazing lady up here in Queensland , she runs Saucy Social Media http://saucysocialmedia.com/ she really is an absolute guru and could do amazing things for your brands without charging ridiculous prices! take a look at her website and see what you think. My role is far more humble.....i look after Social Media and PR for Maleny Dairies. We are a fourth generation dairy farm and have taken on the big guys by building our own processing plant so that we can support other farming familiies and pay them a decent price for their milk. We also run tours of the farm and factory which is quite unique for a dairy farm. Works well for me as i work from home mostly so no-one knows i am still in my P.J's!!! Have not been able to have a full time role now for years, you know why!

Pressure difference between Resmed S8 Vs Breas Z1

I have been using RESMED in auto mode. The pressure used to settle around 11cmWG with AHI between 2 and 4. I have recently switched over BREAS Z1 in auto mode. The pressure has now changed to around 5.5 cmWG with AHI remaining below 5. What would be…See More
