    D'oh!
    It's a full spectrum lamp meant to simulate the sun's rays and ward off the blues caused by seasonal affective disorder.

    Be interested in more information about it - in High Support Disabilities, we used to call this the mid-winter blues

    @hunter_greyghost I bought it off eBay. It's supposed to be a full spectrum light source and you sit near it upon waking or while working for the light exposure. I'll see how mom likes it and report back.

    Looked at these lights - basically a grow light
    depending on what the wattage is as to the result gained - monitor your mum's usage to make sure she doesn't have skin damage from it ?
    we've had an Ultraviolet Sauna for years - great for the aches and pains - especially during winter
    Bev is a Integrated Natural Remedial Therapist and highly recommends the use of saunas !

    Update on the Mitta Mitta black dog

    Looks like he's finished with his parenting duties and back to pissing on car wheels. His face is back to normal and he's very happy to retrieve sticks.

    I am currently out of my home due to fires near Port Macquarie turned and whipped up by the Southerly change.
    Latest from firies here at McDonald’s is now under control again and no homes lost.
    The question you ask yourself is what matters most to take with you.
    For me it was my touring pushie and irreplaceable Mac Pac panniers as pushie riding and touring has been the best thing for my mental health.
    Anyway all should be ok as now the fires have done a full circle around us and are heading back where they started.
    One corner of our property got a bit scorched yesterday morning but only a bit of scrub

    Further update on Mitta Mitta black dog, Sock:

    I was misinformed about him getting the seed out of his cheek: his owner assisted with a pen knife and some metho according to what he said today.

    Also, Sock survived a brown snake bite. The snake had been living under his kennel!
