THIS WRITER’S LIFE: Drink 8 Glasses of water a day. Yeah! Right!

Drs. Dan Negoianu and Stanley Goldfarb at the University of Pennsylvania reviewed published clinical studies on the topic and found no data to suggest people need to stick to the “8 x 8″ rule.

“Indeed, it is unclear where this recommendation came from,” they write in an editorial in the June 2008 issue of the Journal of the American Society of Nephrology.

Then I had to look up Nephrology.

Nephrology deals with the physiology and diseases of the kidneys. So the KIDNEY GUYS say drinking “8 glasses of water a day” advice has no scientific basis or,  it’s rubbish.

THIS WRITER’S LIFE: Euphemisms for fun and profit!

A friend bought her granddaughter a NETFLIX AND CHILL cushion for her Birthday. The hilarious response to the gift was how my friend found out that NETFLIX AND CHILL had an entirely different meaning for millennials.

So watch those EUPHEMISMS. They can be soooooo embarrassing and hilarious. If you are not familiar with this euphemism consult Dr. Google.

THIS WRITER’S LIFE: Inspiration or Prison?

Reading is essential for a writer.

Who wouldn’t want to write like Dickens or Hemingway or Tolstoy?

Yet from this desire, we create our own chains. Build our own prison.

A writer must kill their literary icons to free their own voice.

THIS WRITER’S LIFE: When Ad Gurus thought Women were Dumb

Before the 2nd Wave of Feminism in the 70s, this was typical of the patronising ads for women. We’ve come a long way since then … but still, have a way to go.

THIS WRITER’S LIFE: Addiction Quote

So I was asked by a Bar in Malta if they could put my words on a brass plaque on their bar. It is a quote about ADDICTION. If I can get myself to Malta I reckon there is a drink in it for me.
