Mel Watt's mybest Summary

One of my pet peeves in the summer are the swarms of midges that can spoil your time outdoors. If you are prone to insect bites, I recommend you use an insect repellent and make sure you use sunscreen to protect your skin.

When alcohol is involved, it can be easy to forget our safety. Be prepared for accidents and make sure you have a first aid kit handy. This is specially important if there are kids present, as they can be prone to accidents.
