I tried an experiment last night and took a generic Benadryl before going to bed, and woke up with a normal-sized foot. The problem is as soon as the diphenhydramine wore off the foot went “poof” and started swelling again because whatever made it swell in the first place is still active. So I am slightly sedated by allergy meds as I compose this… (What is the code for a yawn smiley?)

You might want to remember that cameras are everywhere these days before you assault someone with a deadly weapon. Caught on camera – the furious clash between a parish councillor and the group of cyclists who say he ran them off the road Yep, they have a video of the whole thing, but because of UK media laws can’t show anything but a few screen caps from it.
Something happened in the Emerald Isle. Man held over Clontarf hit-and-run released without charge Usually the Irish are very strict and harsh about hit-and-run, what happened this time? I suspect that the recent sharp rise in the fines and prison sentences associated with hit-and-run may have had something to do with it, but I’m just guessing.
Good advice from Oz. Awareness the key in keeping everyone safe on our roads Until the infrastructure improves cyclists will have to keep that head up and moving and alert for cars, because drivers are certainly not looking for bicycles.
Speaking of infrastructure… Paris to let cyclists skip red lights
