Jethro Tull – The Rock Opera


TullIan Anderson celebrates the life and times of the English Agricultural inventor, Jethro Tull, with the announcement of a new series of concert tours beginning September 2015.

The shows tell the story of the original Jethro Tull’s life, reimagined as if in the near future and illustrated with Anderson’s best-known songs from the rock band Jethro Tull’s repertoire.

The performance is in a quasi-operatic structure with virtual guests on video and some additional newly-written songs to round off the elements of the story.

Lyme Inside - Living with Late Stage Lyme Disease


With Lyme disease we get very sensitive to all senses (sound, sight, touch..etc). But also our teeth and gums are very sensitive. It can be painful brushing our teeth and using mouth wash. Even cold or hot water can be painful. I eat sour candy to help with nausea and the acid will make my teeth extremely sensitive and I can feel nerves being hit when I brush near my gums.

I found using Sensodyn Pronamel helps with this issue. Makes it a little easier to brush my teeth with less pain. After a week my teeth are less sensitive. I just can’t eat lemon juice or sour candy as often I need to. Hope this tip might help someone out there…
