Today is the day when most of corona restrictions such as masks inside public spaces and qr codes are abolished. I have actually planned to post about something else, but in connection with the situation in Europe right now I would like to ask all my readers to pray for peace.

Here is some interesting advice:
Morning light seemed to be particularly powerful: those exposed to a high stimulus between 8:00 and 12:00 took an average 18 minutes to fall asleep at night, compared to 45 minutes in the low stimulus group. They slept for an extra 20 minutes. Their sleep efficiency was 2.8% higher. And they reported significantly fewer sleep disturbances. These associations were stronger during winter, when people may have had less opportunity to receive natural light during their journey to work.
Gordijn also recently published a study which found that people slept better following more exposure to daylight. Here, the participants were wired up to polysomnography monitors to record their sleep in detail. “People had more deep sleep, and it was less fragmented after more exposure to daylight,” Gordijn says.

How many good, decent, hard-working men have wives who would never submit to them even in a small matter, such as making a cup of coffee when he asks?
And yet, criminal psychopaths often experience little trouble in getting females do anything for them, no matter how disgusting:
Strange, isn't it?

I have actually been a fan of cod liver oil, but now having my doubts. Vitamins apparently can have side effects, disturb your sleep etc.
Here are a couple of articles to consider:
If you have any experience, good or bad feel, free to share!

How feminism crept into the Church
In front of me lies a '99 issue of Brio, a Focus On The Family magazine for teenage girls. Now I know that this organisation did a lot of good and is/was doctrinally sound ( I haven't been following them recently so not sure what they are up to now); but they made some sort of a compromise with feminism together with many other Evangelicals which finally led to them losing the current culture war pretty decisively.
Brio on its own was not a bad magazine, at least in those times, and they were really solid on many points but though they addressed things like dating in a Christian context, there was very little advice on marriage preparation, and yet many of their readers were 16-17 and older. They had very little to say about learning how to cook or clean, but quite a bit about learning how to earn money, playing sports and choosing a career. Even Cosmo used to run a recipe column in these days (may be they still do, but, of course, I'm not planning to read it).
Vice versa, the very issue which I'm talking about has an article discouraging early marriage. it is a sad story of two teenagers who fell in love, started a s8xual relationship, got married, got a child and then divorced. The author who was by the way an editor, attributed it to the fact that they didn't really love each other but just "fell in love". So far so good you'll say. You should be careful while choosing your marriage partner and I agree.
However, it goes further than this. While trying to dissuade the bride-to-be, the lady editor says among other things, that she should first go to college and have the experience of "being single" and "living in the dorm". I just wonder where in the Bible young girls are advised to move out of their parental home to some hostel so that they could get an experience of being single? Could somebody please give me the chapter and the verse?
The editor herself, I presumed was in her twenties, but when I looked at her photo she seemed to be more like in her thirties, and yet in the end of the article, she says that she is still waiting for this
perfect man right guy whom God will send her, while spending her time traveling, "going out on African safaris", writing books and "hanging out with friends".
Career and travel till your mid-thirties, while waiting for Mr. Right, how is that even different from what secular women were advised to do? At least, she was a virgin, by her admission. But how many girls of that generation followed that disastrous advice and found themselves nearing 40, single and childless?
I'm not of the opinion that everybody should marry or even marry at a certain (young age), but most people don't have a gift of celibacy and most women want to have a family and kids. Well, in this life you get what you are pursuing. If marriage is your goal, you should be proactive, yet girls were taught in some ways to live like men but concerning marriage just wait for a Prince Charming to sweep them off their feet, like some fairy tale princess (in real life, princesses were usual married off by their families at about 15).
To be continued...

Happy Valentine's Day to my readers and Happy Wedding Anniversary for myself (and hubby, of course:)
We went to Belgium, a country where you can currently visit a zoo and drink a cup of coffee on a terrace, without the need to show your papers. It was glorious. And when we came back home, we had this homemade chocolate cake waiting for us. Three cheers to freedom!

They haven't updated since yesterday, but one protester was reportedly killed and more injured:
Chaos ensues in Paris Saturday as hundreds, if not thousands of demonstrators blocked streets in the capital city.
NYTimes said, "thousands of cars, camper vans and trucks" have entered the metro area, which was part of a convoy to protest President Emmanuel Macron's medical tyranny of lockdowns and forced vaccines mandates.
This weekend, protests are banned in the city as more than 7,000 police officers were deployed to counter the "Freedom Convoy."

Ontario declared a state of emergency Friday morning to empower law enforcement to end the blockade of the Ambassador Bridge — the busiest commercial border crossing between the U.S. and Canada — and the Freedom Convoy protest in Ottawa, warning truckers who continue to block the Ambassador Bridge they will be punished if they don't leave. Ontario Premier Doug Ford told reporters that the federal government is enacting new powers to end the blockade. He said protesters will be slapped with hefty fines (amounting to $78,800) and jail time, according to Bloomberg.
Somehow these things never happen to illegal immigrants and fake refugees whom it usually takes years to deport (if ever). No state of emergency declared about that. Which proves something I have always believed. The only reason these people are in our countries is because the
lords of lies powers that be want them here. Feminism, multiculturalism etc, it all happens by design and not by chance.

And just like that, the honkening may be coming to an end - as Alberta Premier Jason Kenney announced on Tuesday that he's ending the province's vaccine passport system.
As the Toronto Star notes:
The passport system, dubbed as the Restrictions Exemption Program, is the first of the province’s current public health restrictions to go in a phased approach laid out by Kenney at a press conference Tuesday.
“Now is the time to begin learning to live with COVID,” said Kenney. “These restrictions have led to terrible division.”
And now, worldwide! The time has come.

Somehow I'm not surprised.
Dr Mike Sutton, whose book Science Fraud: Darwin’s Plagiarism Of Patrick Matthew’s Theory is published by Curtis next Saturday, said: ‘This is the biggest science fraud in history.’
He highlights similarities between key phrases and explanations and cites letters apparently showing Darwin knew Matthew’s work and covered up his debt to his rival.
In one, Darwin’s wife admitted to Matthew that evolution was his ‘original child’, but her husband had nurtured it ‘like his own’.
