The Garage Sale

Get rid of that excess stuff, give it away free to those who need it.Even a Garage Sale for a quick clearance of old and broken things.

Keeping too many things at home will just bring more microbes, fungus and pests into the house.

Keep only what you need. That includes the things you load into the Fridge.

The Garage Sale

Storing too many clothes, food or books in a foolish manner can become a serious health hazard.

Ensure house insides are pest proof and dry. Water seepage, unhygienic surroundings, rotting or decaying organics. will make your home a Holiday Resort for Pests and Microbes.

Keep Clothing free of moths and fungus by storing in a Dry and Dust free location.

Pendrive Vintage Upgrade

I happen to own the Longest Surviving Kingston DataTraveler in written History. It may be low in GB by today's standards, but works well even now.

This year the plastics broke. I have revived it with these parts - A Silicone Sleeve, Part of a Handbag Strap and a little Quickfix. I even had to use some 3M double sided tape, i got that with a table Foam Edge Protector.

I own the Intellectual Property rights of this Exterior design. Do not attempt to imitate, copy or clone this exclusive design. 

Diet and Lifestyle

Become a Vegetarian to save your Kidney, Heart and Liver. Eat More Fruits, Vegetables, Greens, Grains, Nuts and Pulses.

Man's quest for a Luxurious Lifestyle of Self Indulgence is the cause of most of his Health Problems.

Reduce Salt, Chili, Sugar and Fat in your Food.

Don't seek comfort in your Couch, move outdoors using your own feet. Create or craft something with your bare hands.

Health ‘an Hygiene

Diet and Lifestyle

The Activity should be natural and serve some useful purpose, a hobby that uses less Fuel or Electricity. Remember fitness is for both the Brain and Brawn.

DACT Notes -

Media Marketing Mechanics - Think Plan Simulate Execute

It is also important to think unconventionally, that is like thinking in a Tangential or Oblique manner. That is why Kings used to have a Clown on board. A Newspaper hires a Cartoonist for similar reasons. Think Freely with a Wide Perspective without Fixations or Dogmatism.
