    • Oh man that was an embarrassing mistake. Thanks for catching the fact that I gave the wrong title to this post. It’s been too busy a week. I think I have some mindfulness exercises in my future . . .

  1. The article about sunscreens was interesting, but I’m wondering about the questions. I would have to answer a clear “none” to all of them, yet I spend plenty of time outside in the sun. I’m working and gardening, not sunbathing.

    It seems that the wording of their questions indicates a bias that does not recognize sun exposure as anything but a pastime.
