    Hi. Applying magnesium oil can help the body to better absorb magnesium and help reduce muscle cramps. Works well, but I have problems with sensitive skin - was outright allergic to the first brand I used. Have now found a sensitive brand.

    Good Morening Ladies and Gentlemen. Today I must extend my morening greeting to pet lovers, beware there are laws about the sort of behaviour. I have warned you.

    Today a 5.2 slid it's way across the meter screen.

    Well folks it's cold here in Reading but the future looks bright, well it will be if I turn the lights on. Have a good one. Be nice to a strange, I already have, I said good morning to the wife, nobody's stranger than Mrs J.
