Something of interest on our microbiome

Hello dear neighbors! I haven’t been able to publish a translation of my latest post in French (gluten-free sesame and buckwheat crackers) for all kinds of reasons: dealing with the French administration for the past, what, eight weeks? 🤯, having guests over (with more to come 😊), and coaching my dad (in his late eighties) on how to use his brand-new tablet 👍. This is life, with its mixed bag of good and bad… just like our microbiome — oooh, such a smart transition to tell you about this program I have just heard on the BBC, which started today and is available for everyone here.

So many reasons for us to take care of it by feeding it well and not messing it up with additives and so-called “food preservatives”!

I hope you all forgive me for not posting a recipe. Following me requires a lot of patience, doesn’t it?

I wish you all a very good healthy week, dear neighbors. Until next time!



  1. My father in his eighties only had experience with medicine tablets, so you father is someone to admire. He treated the phone like an old style one, taking and listening in turn, but never at the same time! I’m sure your Dear Neighbours, like my Dear Readers are happy with any output, mine have put up with a lot in all the years I’ve been blogging. Have a nice day.


    1. It’s true that there is a lot to master, so we are doing it step by step: turning the tablet on and off, going back to the home screen, capitalizing (or not) and conquering the keyboard, reading and sending messages… I had promised my dad I would install some games, and he reminded me the other day so I had to comply – my mom is a little annoyed with this part: when he is focusing on his « belote » (a typical French card game) he ignores her completely!
      Did you listen to the BBC program?
      Take care, have a nice day!

    1. We had tried to convince my parents to get one a while back. With grandchildren far away it makes communication easier. They were thrilled (and I could tell my dad was actually moved) when they received an email and a video from my daughter. It was as though she had come to visit.
      Thank you Dolly, take care!
