For the first three weeks after the diagnosis I was not allowed to use a computer or a phone. I could not even watch TV. I was only allowed to sleep or take a walk if I felt good.

And so I listened to me and surprisingly, I learned a lot about myself.  For the first time in my life I was able to rest without guilt and it was wonderful.

Click and Grow Basil

Now THIS is a great idea! I love adding basil to many of my dishes but it never seems to survive in my kitchen for longer than a couple of weeks. In comes the Click & Grow starter kit which includes the electronic smartpot complete with basil seed plant cartridge, water and fertilizing system, and software that measures and provides exactly what your little plant needs at all times. Your job is to install the batteries, fill the tank up with water and place in a sunny location and Presto - instant Basil! What a great invention!
