What do you think about #photoshop?  Is it harmless? After my last blog post on it my friend sent me this +BuzzFeed link

Photo Editing is part of everyday life these days.

It's coming up to 2 years since Jim & I moved to #Bali  - It's flown by!

I've been reminiscing about the early days on the island & reading my old blog 'Surf Break' that I used as a journal for the first year of our trip.

This entry never fails to make me laugh, so I thought it would be fun to share!

Enjoy!

We all know how it goes. It starts will a small, unassuming tickle in your throat, a funny feeling that something isn’t quite right… and before you know it, your head is sore and pounding, your nose is stuffy and runny and your throat appears to have reformed into a new structure, made up entirely of tiny pieces of glass..........

Hauled up in bed with the dreaded lurgy, I thought I'd make use of my time and start a mini blog series!

I read this article in the guardian today.

It's true, recently research has shown that saturated fat may not be the devil we once thought it was in relation to heart disease.

However, it's worth noting that just because a little of something isn't as harmful as we once thought, that it doesn't mean that a lot of it is now 'good for you' .

Most things in excess can be harmful.

Just because saturated fat may not be linked to heart disease, doesn't mean that all the fats in your diet should be saturated.

So, like most things its about BALANCE. Eat real food (including a bit of butter if you fancy). MOVE your body. Focus on the overall healthfulness of your diet & not on a single nutrient
