I consider myself fortunate to be "tech savvy" and realise my life is richer from my being so, and I am hopeful this will become the norm for the majority of older folk in future generations. If you are still resisting...don't. I'll guarantee your life will be enriched if you take up the challenge.... to conquer the computer!

We're well into the 21st Century - monogamy should no longer be the unspoken rule. Isn't it time for everyone to openly admit that not just men have sexual desires? Women who begin Tinder exchanges are probably more common than you think (it's not just straight white boys). What's the point in being coy and not saying what we really want to say?

In this blog post, I will be as transparent and honest about my own personal experiences of being one of those women who CHOOSE to never learn their lesson, and hopefully, I will be able to give some clarity to why this is such a common predicament, and why it always will be.

Having someone to help you reach the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel is one of the best things about being in a relationship.

While their worth may be trivialised by their ability to mask their partner's shortcomings, I think if we scratch beneath the surface, these women are every bit as inspirational as the women stepping into Parliament, and calling them leaders' wives doesn't diminish it one bit.

10 Myths of Health

Clark Russell

Many nutrition myths get repeated endlessly, to the point where they become accepted as doctrine e.g. the UK government's Eatwell Plate, which is outdated dogma; the advice follows the low fat/high starchy carb dietary guidelines, which is actually a recipe for weight gain and sub optimal health.

From 'Pramface' to Professor: Look What Can Happen If We Support Teenage Mothers Instead of Stigmatising Them....

Being at university was very different from being at home changing nappies and reading stories to my three babies... Investing in young mums (and dads too) by giving support, encouragement and free or affordable full-time childcare is vital, as is removing barriers to education. Who knows what those other young women - insultingly known as "pramfaces" - could turn out to be if they were helped and supported as I was.

What I dislike is the lack of regulation, and the rise of start-up companies with neither the knowledge nor experience to share such specialist animals with the public. The problem with animal encounter companies can be split broadly into two main areas: animal welfare, and, public safety.

The male erection: the epitome of manhood... The truth is, impotency can affect anyone, and certainly at any age. It's a taboo subject that is far more common than most would realise. Just as having an erection at an inappropriate time, often for no real reason; it can be an awkward experience.

What does matter is what you take away from it. Four days away from emails and social media banter made for a very welcome break and to spend an hour working out where my diaphragm exists in my body, or sing about 'Clambake' surrounded by assorted foreign accents puts a whole new perspective on life.

I've struggled with negative body image my entire life. Born missing my left arm and then at 18 months of age suffering third degree burns to 14% of my body after knocking boiling water on myself while struggling to get used to a prosthetic arm. I grew up looking and feeling different - in a society where so much emphasis is placed on physical appearance and the desire for perfection - I felt isolated and alone.
