Summer hit with a vengence today, 38degrees! But at least it is a dry heat rather than the sticky humid heat that Perth gets. Our split system air conditioners went in on Wednesday, just in time for the heat that is predicted over the next few days. Can’t complain too much, it has been beautiful and cool nearly every night since we moved in, LOL so much so that we were joking that we would need the heating before we needed to use the cooling!

Thanks to the puppies I was up at 5.20am – a beautiful time to be up and about outside! Checked and trimmed all the tree branches that were overhanging the fencing, and spent some time in the spider shed trying to get the electric fence working…there is power in the shed, but the fence isn’t biting yet, so there is obviously a problem somewhere that needs to be located and fixed.
Took the kids for a swim this afternoon, the shire pool is lovely and clean with beautiful grassed areas and a BBQ area, and never seems to be over crowded – not like a normal public swimming pool thats for sure.

This evening we put the horse yards up, feed time was so much less stressful – for me and the horses- with everybody in their own spot and Tazzy, Flicka and Sandy not getting in everyones way and upsetting things! Just been out to let them out (11pm) and bl**dy Tazzy has escaped his yard, loosened the wire on Sandy’s AND pulled Bills feed bin over to the edge of the fence so that he could eat it. Nuisance pony! Electric yard for him as soon as its up and running. Stuck him back in the big paddock to let the others finish their dinner in peace.

Oh, and I found out that yesterday I was holding the Shepherds whistle wrong. Unfortunately, holding it in my mouth correctly only produces a rather disgusting “sscchhlllerccch” sound…which is the sound spit makes in the gap of the whistle after you nearly inhale the silly thing. I did however manage to make a sharp sound eventually (much to G and A’s disgust). Couldn’t repeat that little success though…might need to go sit down the bottom of the 43 acres and practice…for a few months!

And the internet is still down so I am writing this in a word document to post later. Telstras country wireless service leaves ALOT to be desired!

Older men with diabetes mellitus, but also severely overweight men, may develop secondary hypogonadism. "The core symptom of low testosterone levels is usually decreased libido," Dr. Cornelia Jaursch-Hancke from the German Clinic for Diagnostics, Sydney, at the conference in Melbourne. Various additional symptoms such as osteoporosis, anemia, erectile dysfunction, decreasing muscle strength and mass, but also diminishing vitality and depression can be added. In secondary hypogonadism the function of the hypothalamus or pituitary is impaired so that the Leydig cells of the testicle no longer form testosterone or no testosterone due to lack of stimulation. Typically, the gonadotropins LH and FSH in the serum are still normal to low. This also applies to patients with type 2 diabetes, of which about 25 to 50 percent are affected, the endocrinologist reported. An increasing problem is also MOSH, the "male obesity associated secondary hypogonadism". As a cause, she described the visceral fetal cells, which are highly active endocrinically and produce mediators, which promote, inter alia, insulin resistance, inflammatory processes and dyslipidemia and stimulate estradiol production. In sum, the hypothalamic-pituitary axis is inhibited. Continue reading...
