Do you think if I GROVEL to Ford?

Loved the song too. OK – we have all changed since 1964 when the Mustang was first released.

A very short rant about sugar!

As you will of course know, I am using MyFitnessPal to track my food intake. Sugar is unavoidable! Every damn day I have exceeded the 5o-odd gram allowance. Sugar is in everything, it is unavoidable.

Exercising and activity tracking with VivoFit

This article continues from Sussan Ley updates the nation on Medicare. I spent several hours last night looking at the Medicare statistics. I came to a conclusion which may send a few readers reaching for their smelling salts. I ask that after you’ve taken a whiff, you stick with me. My conclusion may seem radical a […]

A list of past articles is provided at the end of this article should you have missed out. I also appeared on the ABC News supporting the RACGP in their “You’ve […]
