Good Morning! It’s a sunny day here in Port Loring Ontario. The sunshine is nice to see, that’s for sure. And it is what almost everyone is missing when it comes to most health related issues. The problem is that most folks today are inside, and if they do get outside, this time of the year, they are covered, so they can’t soak up the sun’s rays which we need. The alternative is taking Vitamin D3. The truth is, this is often-misunderstood “vitamin D” is not a vitamin — it is a prohormone. Prohormones are substances that the body converts to a hormone. In fact, unlike other vitamins, only about 10 percent of the so-called vitamin D the body requires, comes from food (such as dairy products and oily fish), the rest the body makes it for itself. But for the body to make vitamin D, it requires sunshine. Once the body is exposed to the sunlight, a chemical reaction occurs when it hits the skin. I would think that a blood test for vitamin D should be put up there high on the list to have done these days. But hey, what do I know? Highway 522 is bare and dry this morning. Temperatures will begin to drop after Thursday. But Thursday will feel like summer. Yesterday the urge hit, so I worked in the woodworking shop all day and today will do the same. I have a bunch of projects lined up, so we will have a good showing when we open up our small store next spring. This virus has shut us down now for two years. Now, in saying that, we will have to see how we make out with this new virus. If it is real bad, we might just stay closed for another year. We will have to see what spring brings. With that, I am off for a homemade blueberry muffin my lovely wife made, and cup of tea for a change. Take care and stay safe, this new variant is taking over things real fast.
