As it was brought to our attention that we were short in the “take care of yourself” department a few weeks ago! Thank you *C* *R* and *Dc. J* we decided that a proper first aid kits was of necessity.
It is true, that we are in a higher risk bracket of getting injured, especially those knuckles on some hard to get part. So, on this rainy night, we went to our local drugstore and raided the first aid aisle to complement the already filled box from our class. We are now just awaiting for some more specialized products from our Friend *D*.
With all that equipment, we will be able to take care of small and medium cuts, small and medium burns, mild pain from headache and muscle, temporary immobilization finger and arm or legs, mild ear or eye infection from too much swimming, itchy throat, splinter removal, and loose long hair (that a packet of hair elastic)…. hew! Just looking at it our daughter *E* feels nauseous!
Finally, in our mind prevention is better than panic chaos! so hopefully even if one of us hurt him or herself during a week-end getaway we will be able to keep going and not have to rush home! Now that peace of mind is my first aid kit!
Sunshine anybody, Island 40th will take us where our daughter fell in love with the Mediterranean region, Corsica. One place we hope to get to know on our travel, as we have never been when we lived in Europe.
Corsica is an island in the Mediterranean Sea. It is located west of Italy, southeast of the French
mainland, and north of the island of Sardinia.
Corsica is one of the 26 régions of France, although strictly speaking Corsica is designated as a “territorial collectivity” by law. As a territorial collectivity, it enjoys greater powers than other French régions, but for the most part its status is quite similar. Corsica is referred to as a “région” in common speech, and is almost always listed among the other régions of France. Although the island is separated from the continental
mainland by the Ligurian Sea and is closer to Italy than to the French mainland, politically Corsica is part of Metropolitan France. It was once briefly an independent Corsican Republic, until being incorporated into France in 1769.
Napoléon Bonaparte was born in Ajaccio, where his ancestral home, Casa Buonaparte, is also located. Corsica is also the birthplace of the French singers Tino Rossi and Alizée.
