Sleep… In Space?

As you may already know, I love analysing parts of my own life, particularly my sleep (See post about┬ámy Jawbone). Let me just prove to you how much of a nerd I am about this. I have compared a week of my sleep, recorded in a ‘sleep diary’ in late March (so, over my birthday)…to the sleep of astronauts and cosmonauts in space. Sleep in Space.

*Small disclaimer: I’ve never been to space

This is stemmed mainly from an old assignment that I’ve now got carried away with and I’ve amended it slightly to be a little easier on the eye, this post is proper nerdy, it’s like a full on essay. I dare you to read it, though, as it’s very very interesting, especially how the different environment in space can effect our sleep! If you would like the references from┬áthe full paper to read yourself, then just let me know @kathyathy.

Dehydrating fruit cheaply using an oval shaped crock pot (precisely)

Stemming from my previous post, “Jingle Smells and Christmas Pre-scents”, here’s how you can dehydrate the oranges yourself without worrying about your electricity bill.

To dehydrate in the oven, you’ll need to have the pieces in there on a low heat (around 80c) for about 3 hours, I can imagine that would use a similar amount of electricity as boiling your kettle for a long period of time.
