    Why are you up at 2am in the morning Seb.

    Interesting capture. Self Portrait. Love the eyes.

    Not a self-portrait, actually a friend of mine.

    I was up because my girlfriend and I came down with really bad intestinal infections. I am doing better now, but she ended up having to go to the emergency room, so I was up worrying. She'll be ok though, they pumped her full of fluids and she's back home now, but I doubt I'll be asleep anytime soon...

    Thanks for the comments, I really like the shot, even though the only way I can describe it is "interesting."

    You two eat something that wasn't cooked properly, like chicken. Think about what you both ate over past 24 hours prior to getting ill. Keep up with fluids, like flat lemonade and Sao biscuits, don't worry about nourishing foods. Let your system do the work and everything should be OK in about 12-24 hours, atleast start to settle. Sorry about your girlfriend being so sick, it is worrying I know. Looked after more sick people than you care to shake a stick at.

    echinacea, zinc, tea, ester-C, immune support........ VITA man will defeat this :D

    " The work done by the tonsils is similar to that done by the lymph glands. By the formation of new white blood corpuscles and by filtering the stream of the lymph, the germs of disease, metabolic poisons, and the foreign bodies are arrested and are made innocuous in these structures. Tonsils and glands fulfil the same function, but there is this difference, that the tonsils are not encapsulated in connective tissue. The tonsils can expand towards throat and mouth and their special formation with deep indentures and clefts, which number from ten to eighteen in each tonsil, makes it possible for the tonsil to get greatly enlarged if necessary. Foreign bodies, body toxins, germs, etc., which have been carried into the tonsils by the lymph stream can therefore be eliminated by way of the mouth, and thus the body is ridded of noxious materials "
