There’s just something about Spring...🌺
The crocuses in the garden are beginning to bloom with the arrival of warmer and brighter days and already, we are anticipating the arrival of the longer days to come ...☀️
What does a security systems installer do?
Security systems installers fit and service electronic systems to detect intruders and control access to buildings or sites. They also fit alarms in houses and business premises.
Security systems installers:
discuss security plans with the customer
carry out site surveys to work out where to place security devices
install security systems and connect them to control panels by WiFi, fibre optic cables and other connections
test systems and explain to customers how to operate them
check and service existing systems
respond to call-outs to repair faulty systems
Work includes fitting systems, such as closed circuit television (CCTV), building access controls, fire and intruder alarms, and other electronic surveillance equipment.
In 1997, Labour won the general election by what was described as a landslide. Anecdotally, it is often said, that Tony Blair was greatly inspired while stood in the very spot I took these photos from, and started to plan is election victory, as 4000 years ago (prempting the labour victory by 3993 years) Mam Tor in Derbyshire experienced its own landslide. There are subtle differences between the two landslides: one lead to great economic damage, and the other made a road impassible. While New Labour is gone, the Mam Tor landslide carrys on, and the road is as impassible as ever. You can see it here in both photos, dwarfed by the sheer size of the head scarp.

Rocky says ‘there’s nothing quite like a bracing dip followed by taking your human(s) to the Buxton Brewery Tap House for a Wednesday lunch’. We’re dog friendly here and we love having them visit us in both the Tap House and Cellar! #buxtonbrewerydogs
Sweat isn’t smelly. It’s just a mixture of salt and water, plus some fat and proteins. Body odour is created when sweat comes into contact with the natural bacteria that lives on our skin. Changing this reaction is easily done with natural deodorant. 💪These days, most people use antiperspirants. They clog up your pores with aluminum, preventing sweating, which stops odour, but also don't allow your body to regulate temperature and release toxins properly. Since 60's studies have linked aluminum to various diseases: Alzheimer's, cancer, kidney issues etc. But there's no clear evidence on that. Aluminum is in fact toxic in high doses, but does your body absorb enough of it from your stick to cause you harm? No study has proved it yet. I believe it could potentially be dangerous in some ways: you put it on your body everyday, throughout your whole life. But that's just my point of view. Anyway, I decided to scrap my armpit stick and look for more natural solution. Why? Well, first of all, looking at ingredients list doesn't hurt my brain. Some producers use food grade ingredients: if something is safe to eat it's surely sound under my wing. Second factor is environmental impact. Creating antiperspirants can often be an energy and resource intensive process. Natural deodorants use simple, non toxic ingredients. It's also easy to find them in eco friendly, fully recyclable packaging. I like to think, that I'm doing it for our children and grandchildren; don't trash the world for hundreds of years to come. Plus, you support small, local, often family run companies. People like you and me, not multi-million corporations. And finally last but not least: natural cosmetics are cruelty free and often vegan. What's not to like? 😇
