The Elixir of Life

Last weekend it was Doors Open Weekend in Edinburgh, so on Saturday we visited a few places. One of them was a pharmaceuticals firm in an interesting old building. They had some of their archives available for inspection, including this one.

This is highly encouraging.

I eat natural yogurt every day.

No premature senility for me. Now I come to think of it, I suppose I'm a bit old for premature senility. Point proved.

We visited a couple of other places, including South Leith Church, which has this amazing ceiling.

It's still quite mild and the garden has lots of colour at the moment. Winter? Months away.

Mr L and I went to the Botanics yesterday, where the foliage is colouring up fpr autumn,

though these poppies bloom bravely on.


  1. Beautiful and green there! We are starting into cold(30s and 40s) nights, so winter is definitely coming. Wahh! I wish I liked yogurt. :(

  2. I love yogurt! And poppies. And your grandchildren doing such fun things. Two days ago my youngest grandson turned eight and I think I will never have more grandchildren....I'll eat yogurt to live to enjoy my great grandchildren!

  4. Well, now I'm going to have to add yogurt to the shopping list -- anything to keep me around to torture my children LOL. And funny you should mention premature senility -- I heard a report about a university study about said subject this morning on the radio -- and I thought to myself "Whew! I've passed the age where I have to worry about that
