I didn’t mean to sound disrespectful in yesterday’s post, but this morning I reread it and felt I should post a sort of apology. My nanocrud comment was meant to be a bit tongue-in-cheek, that’s all. I do believe that nanotechnology is a promising approach. It just won’t be useful to us in the near future. Problems such as those pointed out by the UO chemist, as well as others that I have read about here and there, need to be resolved. It will probably take years…
As for the DMAPT trial, I admit to being a bit disappointed, but I understand why I must wait. Too bad, though, since I was rather looking forward to travelling to the UK and perhaps meeting a few of my close blog readers/friends, you know who you are!  Well, if Berlusconi wins the upcoming Italian elections, , Stefano, the cats and I may well move to Northumberland to live with the puffins. Or to the North Pole.
One more thing. Yesterday I noticed that a few Google ads had mysteriously materialized at the bottom of my blog. Have they always been there? I’d never noticed them before. Anyway, I would like to state that I have nothing to do with any of it. I have asked the Healthblogs manager to remove them, if possible, so I hope they will soon get blasted back into cyberspace, never to return.   
It’s a gorgeous sunny day in Florence, and I have errands to run, so I must be off. Ciao a tutti!


  1. Google did not become multi-billionaires without keeping an eye
    on the main chance, Margaret.They’ve analysed your blog and
    done a deal with the businesses concerned.SO … …
    when you’ve banished them from your blog, do the same deal
    yourself.It may pay for the trip to the UK.
    What’s sauce for the gander is sauce for the goose (although
    you’re more of a swan really)

  2. Margaret: you may NEVER qualify for the trials – and that would be good, right? so pay yourself that trip to London – and if you want North Pole, I still have 3 feet of snow in the back of the house (as of April 8) – no need to go to the North Pole.
