Let's Cool it in the Bedroom

(The New York Times)By GRETCHEN REYNOLDS July 17, 2014Sleep is essential for good health, as we all know.

"If this works as described, it will be useful for me. My hands (and the rest of me) are severely arthritic, and while I've learned to cope with ordinary pens it's uncomfortable. Difficult, on bad days."

Diabetes diagnosed with inexpensive, portable microchip test
