Pollen Warning

You can smell the pollen outside.

I have said it before, and I will say it again; if you or your family suffer from Hayfever, you can reduce the effects by leaving your shoes at the door and asking visitors to do the same.

Your shoes pick up pollen, don't grind the stuff into your carpet.

Good point. Many people may think that shoe removal indoors is only important in wet weather when it's wet and muddy outside and that our shoes don't carry much dirt in summer. But your point about pollen is absolutely correct and our shoes pick up germs all the year round. It is also true that they always cause wear and tear on our floor coverings. So it's important that we maintain our "shoes off" policy in all seasons.

Indeed. I am glad you agree.

I notice appear to have an blogger account. Are you blogging yourself?

No I don't blog myself.

You got the account just to comment on blogs that exclude non-users?

Wow. I never thought of the pollen being tracked in from outside. I guess if I had thought about it I would have thought that the pollen would be smushed, therefore rendered harmless.

Pollen is already powdery stuff, like dust, so I am not sure you can do much to smush it.

I think if you are allergic to it, it is best to reduce the amount in the house as much as possible.

God Bless
