Enjoying my grossly overfilled plate of muck for lunch I was disturbed by a call from the museum, her voice shrilled on the ansafone and I rose, put aside my lunch and made my way to the desk. She put the phone down as I lifted mine. Typical woman! I realised some tragedy was taking place so I acted swiftly - I went back to my lunch. I would have called but that costs money. Later, before I had cleaned up, I waddled into the museum to discover I was not required. She just wanted to know if the email sent that morning had arrived! Tsk!
However the new 'Body Science' exhibition was up and running so I wandered around that pushing here and feeling there and recognising the kids will love this one as much as the adults do! Glancing at the skulls brought some of you lot to mind and I wondered if you recognised anyone...? This looks a good exhibition, one with lots of thing to play with and that makes folks happy. Mind you they are getting in free for this exhibition so they ought to be happy.
This there here supposes to inform you of the fat content of the grub you eat. Difficult to picture through the cabinet but clear enough to see why we are so fat. I was reading about folks in the past and their healthier diet was mostly vegetarian with occasional meat or fish. They were thinner, stronger and fitter because of the manual labour and much walking but could of course not cure most diseases. In fact when I was a lad few fat folks could be seen around town, except for the drinkers of course.
Not very clear but this shows one pound of fat, the fat we carry in our gut. It has put me off the pizza for tonight anyway! I had chips instead...
