First of all: *Phew* that your wife seems to be okay. And second: It's scary how dependant we are on technology. It's maybe not as advanced here as it is where you are in terms of social use like you describe, but terrifying to know that perhaps, one blip, one voltage fluctuation, and you've got results that may have gone wildly haywire.

Good to know she's ok now. and wish her a big getwell (even if she's ok now) from here.
techno-blips, if they happen can be scary! and while we're on the toic how does one get an RSS feed?

Your last point about your grandmother's remedies is thought-provoking. Yes, technology helps in a big way but I feel it often loses the larger picture. Sometime ago I asked a school mate who was doing her MBBS if all diseases were psychosomatic and if they delved into the mental state of the patient and she said, 'Dunno, we don't have the time for that.'

I tend to think that on the whole, the advantages offered by technology far out-weigh the disadvantages related to the risks it brings in. The "missing big picture" is clearly an area where tons of improvement is needed, but if one looks at medicine, the "big picture" issue seems all the more pre-dominant - instead of treating the body as a whole, different parts are studied separately by specialists in that "department" (Every doctor we met assured us that the problem was not in his or her area, but none could draw an overall picture).

Rash, regarding RSS, since you use Blogger, you need to do the following once you login to your blog: on the Settings tab, there will be a link to "Site Feed". Click on that, and in that section choose "Yes" for the option "Publish Site Feed", and choose "Full" for the "Descriptions" option. That is all :-)

Thank you. Had no idea this feed thing was hiding in the settings. have provided it and put up a link also. Now taking off to rest after hard work.

The feed works, Rash - you deserved that rest.
