    Simvastatin, Clopidogrel, Multivitamin
    Every day I walk for an hour after breakfast and then exercise, usually aerobic-based, for an hour after my evening meal. I always exercise 45 minutes after eating. In addition I also walk my two dogs.
    Tolerance and respect for other people - if you can't think of anything constructive and helpful to say - say nothing. Favourites places to visit are New Zealand and Iceland. Favourite gadget - my beloved Kindle.
    People who think they are always right and ram their opinions down your throat. No-one knows everything. Those who shout loudest are usually the ones who actually know the least.
    Travelling, photography, history, patchwork, cross-stitch.
