LA PHOTO DU LUNDI #50 -SILENCE

LA PHOTO DU LUNDI #50
(MONDAY'S PICTURE)
SILENCE


Leaving my talkative children to school through a very noisy London 
Moments after, driving along the beautiful countryside
A motorway like a runway if there is no tumultuous traffic jam
Arrived at the airfield...
Under a typical March blue sky,
I just enjoyed
The smell of the grass...

GHOSTLY



No, I don't believe in ghost
Yes, I do believe in signs
Which may be explained by mathematical theories,
Or quantum physics.
But this is another story...

COCKPIT BEAUTY BAZAAR - SORE LIPS, ANGULAR CHEILITIS OR STOMATITIS (VASELINE)

COCKPIT BEAUTY BAZAAR
SORE LIPS, ANGULAR CHEILITIS OR STOMATITIS {PART 2}
(VASELINE)

Sometimes when your lips become painfully dry, it may lead to a not very nice looking red patches at the corner of the lips. And even if you apply a lip balm, it does not disappear at all and may even worsened. This condition has a name : an angular cheilitis or angular stomatitis.


Angular because it is at the corner of your mouth and cheilitis for the inflammation.
I can see lots of people with it and it urges me to go and let them know, but...for the obvious reason, I don't do it;)
It is terribly common and no, you cannot contaminate others people with it..., Yes, you can still kiss your beloved ...
It may comes from a variety of situation, but the occurring one is a deficiency in minerals and vitamins especially with people following a poor diet or strict vegan.
You have to adopt the following measure : do not use a lip balm ANYMORE, you will spread the inflammation even more through your baton.
On a daily basis, try to use this balm (see my Cockpit Bazaar about it HERE).

LA PHOTO DU LUNDI #47 - LET THERE BE LIGHT!

LET THERE BE LIGHT!



"Using color and light to direct the minds of the faithful 
by material means towards the immaterial..."
This is how the historian and adviser to Louis VI and Louis VII, Abbot Suger,
defined the function of religious stained glass.
Symbol of the sacred light ?
Transcendence of the divine?
