I had my biennial eye check up last week.  I was just wondering, if single opthamologists who have studied the nuances of body language were looking for someone, would they get confused because everyone they see each day would have fully dilated pupils?  Not much of a joke I'll admit, but it's the best I can think of at the moment. 
Fortunately the young lady couldn't see any degeneration (well, not in the eyes anyway), and my recent annual battery of tests came back within normal tolerances.  Except my good cholesterol, which was slightly low.  I've heard that nuts are good for that.  Any other top tips for getting the good cholesterol up?
Oh, and did you hear about the optician who fell into a lens grinder and made a spectacle of himself?

GROANNNNNN! Brian, that was terrible! Glad to see that your eye exam went well. The things I use to get my good HDL's up are olive oil, olives, avocados, and yes, nuts.

Here's an interesting website with some nice things for making your eyes bonkers.

oily fish will also help good cholesterol.(salmon) Or if you want an easier way omega 3 fatty acid supplements.
