Many women are afraid of their first mammogram, and even if they have had them before, there is fear. But there is no need to worry. By taking a few minutes each day for a week preceding the exam and doing the following practice exercises, you will be totally prepared for the test, and best of all, you can do these simple practice exercises right in your home.
EXERCISE 1: Open your refrigerator door, and insert one breast between the door and the main box. Have one of your strongest friends slam the door shut as hard as possible and lean on the door for good measure. Hold that position for five seconds. Repeat (just in case the first time wasn't effective).
EXERCISE 2: Visit your garage at 3 a.m. when the temperature of the cement floor is just perfect. Take off all your clothes and lie comfortably on the floor sideways with one breast wedged under the rear tire of the car. Ask a friend to slowly back the car up until your breast is sufficiently flattened and chilled. Switch sides, and repeat for the other breast.
EXERCISE 3: Freeze two metal bookends overnight. Strip to the waist. Invite a stranger into the room. Have the stranger press the bookends against either side of one of your breasts and smash the bookends together as hard as he/she can. Set an appointment with the stranger to meet next year to do it again. You are now properly prepared!

Yesterday we had a day in Coventry. There was a good reason why we made the bus journey into Coventry. We had been invited to BBC Coventry and Warwickshire for an interview. We were glad we set of early. We caught the x18, which is supposed to take you on the quick route via Leamington-Spa. Both Leamington-Spa and Coventry are festooned with road works, and when the bus arrived in Leamington-Spa the driver did not know which way to go around the diversions, so he had to ask another bus driver coming in the opposite direction. Our driver then still got it all wrong, so we ended up going around the diversions twice. We did eventually make it to Coventry and thankfully were not late arriving at the radio station.
We were made very welcome by everyone at the station whilst we wanted to go on the Vic Minett Show.
After we had finished with the radio, we headed off into the city for lunch at a Chinese buffet before walking around Coventry.
Coventry has such a wealth of history and some very impressive buildings.
The old Cathedral is a magnificent building, which is undergoing more work.
Recently Coventry felt a huge amount of sadness when a double decker bus crashed into Sainsbury’s killing two people. The out pouring of grief is still evident.
We very much enjoyed our day in Coventry.
