- This month is all about #VisionHealth! #DidYouKnow that there’s a correlation between vision problems and learning? Children don’t always realize that they are having vision problems, afterall their vision is the only vision they have ever known. It’s important to be on the watch for signs that suggest your child may be struggling to see. Some of the more common signs include: squinting or holding objects close to the eyes, headaches, turning or tilting the head or covering or closing one eye, astrabismus (turned eye), excessive blinking and rubbing, tearing, itchy or burning eyes.
Most of these signs are fairly intuitive, but there is a long list of other signs and symptoms that are linked to vision and learning that aren’t so obvious. Some of these include: *A dislike of near work (for example, a dislike of playing with Lego)
*A short attention span
*Day dreaming during work time
*Skipping words, letters or lines when reading or taking notes from the board
*Using a finger or moving the head to track when reading
*Trouble reading, difficulty remembering what was read or poor comprehension
*Delayed learning of the alphabet
*Persistent letter, number or word reversals
*Problems with laterality
*Not completing assignments on time
*Difficulty with geometric shapes
*Poor hand-eye coordination
*Poor performance in school
If your child is experiencing any of these signs or symptoms, it is important to address the issue with an optometrist. Treatments such as vision therapy or reading programs may be needed to help with the underlying vision problem.

- If you’re like me, it can be difficult to do much thinking before coffee. I get it, but there’s a step you should add to your daily coffee routine: using a coffee scale to weigh your beans and water.⠀
I know, I know. Using a scale to brew coffee? Trust me, it’s worth it.⠀
Measuring beans and water probably isn’t a part of your ideal morning routine, but it’s a step with instant, delicious results. A coffee scale will change the way you brew coffee. Your brew will be tastier, more balanced, and reliably delicious every single morning.⠀
At one point, only uber-pretentious coffee shops were using scales to brew, but things have changed rapidly over the last couple years. Now even mainstream, approachable shops are using scales to brew pour over coffee and espresso. It’s not uncommon to find casual coffee lovers using a scale to brew at home - the benefits are that obvious!⠀

- If you have ever driven from Southern California to Las Vegas you’ve probably noticed that San Bernardino County is a very large county. However you might not know is how big it really is …
With an area of 20,105 square miles (52,070 km2), San Bernardino County is the largest county in the United States by area, although some of Alaska's boroughs and census areas are larger. It has a population of 2,076,399 that makes it larger than 14 of the 50 states of the USA.
The county is close to the size of West Virginia. It is larger than nine of the smallest states, larger than the four of smallest states combined, and larger than 70 sovereign nations including Croatia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Denmark, Netherlands, Switzerland, Holland, Belgium, Israel, and Taiwan.

- Sooo the final episode of Game of Thrones had aired and it was definitely a reminder of how much George RR Martin loves English history 😄⚔️ PS: Don’t read this if you haven’t seen the last episode yet!!! 🚫
So the tyrant Queen was killed, the Iron Throne destroyed and the rightful heir John Snow aka Aegon Targaryen went into exile rejoining the Night’s Watch, promising not to produce an heir. Tyron Lannister decreed that representatives of the six kingdoms would from now on elect their King, eliminating rule of succession by birthright. This is the ending that GRR Martin has planned for his books and it looks like he took some inspiration from 17th and 18th-century English history – specifically the English Civil War. So let’s unpack:
⚔️ The English Civil War (also called the Great Rebellion) was fought between supporters of the monarchy of Charles I and opposing groups commonly referred to as Parliamentarians. After his defeat in 1645, Charles I surrendered. He refused to accept his captors' demands for a constitutional monarchy and was tried and sentenced to death. The High court of Justice declared Charles guilty of attempting to „uphold in himself an unlimited and tyrannical power to rule according to his will, and to overthrow the rights and liberties of the people". After the execution of the King, the "Commonwealth of England" was declared. The country was ruled as a republic with Oliver Cromwell as elected Lord Protector. Just as the Iron Throne was melted down, the Parliamentarians had the ancient English crown jewels melted down, preventing them from being used as a symbol of the monarchy. Meanwhile, the rightful heir to the throne, King Charles II lived in exile – sorry Johnny. While GoT ends the story at this point it’s real life counterpart didn’t stop here.
After Cromwell’s death in 1658 and a brief rule of his son, the Royalists returned to power. The monarchy was reinstated and King Charles II was crowned with newly forged Crown Jewels – the ones that are used by Queen Elizabeth II today.

- There’s a well-known story that the Peugeot 309 actually was the designated successor to the Talbot Horizon, to be named Talbot Arizona. Peugeot officially denies this, saying that Projet C28 was always intended to be a Peugeot. I for one believe the Talbot story. My conviction is based on the book ‘les 7 vies the Poissy’, an extensive study on the history of the Poissy factory, where the 309 was built. The book consists of 354 pages of very French text, with no pictures, wrapped in a deadly serious cover, so it must be reliable.
In 1978 Peugeot bought Chrysler Europe. Part of that deal was the Poissy factory, where the Talbot cars formerly known as Simca’s were built. In the early ‘80s Talbot started collapsing. At the same time tensions in the Poissy factory increased. There were rumors about closing the factory, and in June 1982 the situation escalated. There were violent strikes, at first in the factory, but soon outside of it as well. Peugeot dismissed thousands of factory workers, but at the same time tried to calm things down by promising that Poissy would get the C28: a brand new car, to be built at Poissy, destined to be the flagship for Talbot. As the development of the C28 progressed, Peugeot started doubting what to call the car. The troubles at Poissy continued, and the media eagerly reported on them, resulting in Talbot sales dropping at the speed of light. Naming the new car Talbot would surely reduce its chances. On the other hand, naming it a Peugeot would kill what little was left of Talbot. Peugeot kept postponing the decision as late as the end of 1984 - less than a year before launch. The final verdict: C28 would be known as a Peugeot.
