U.V. in New Zealand reaches high levels (today it is predicted by NIWA to peak at 11 on the scale). These levels are reached thanks to proximity to the Antarctic ozone hole, earth’s elliptical orbit (which takes us closer to the sun in our summer than the North), and cleaner air (pollution acts as a buffer – what a twist).
You could have tip-top melanin production down here, and still come out crispy at the end of the day. Sunscreen, sunglasses, hats, and shade are essential for survival in our summer sun. Go without at your peril.

Valentine’s Day! A day to celebrate all the discount chocolate! If you don’t have a partner or significant other, don’t be sad, you have 50% off heart-shaped chocolates and absolutely no obligation to share them with anyone.
Valentine’s Day isn’t just about chocolate and candy, though. It actually stems from a Christian liturgical feast day celebrating several Saints called Valentine (or Valentinus) from the 2nd century AD. As per the path to sainthood in those days, these Valentines were executed for carrying out their priestly duties. There isn’t much more detail than that, that’s not attributed to legend.
