Platypus Milk: How It Could Combat Superbugs « lancalass

My Sister Pauline, called Home Too Soon.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane , I would walk right up to heaven and bring you back again.

The greatest gift our parents gave us..was each other.

If I had a flower for every memory I have with you, I could forever walk in my garden.

Rest In Peace knowing how much I love you!!

All I ask is that you remember me at the alter of God.

A sundown splendid and serene,
A sister’s kiss upon your cheek,
A timeless moment when you are thanked,
You smile but cannot speak.
Such gifts are rich beyond compare,
And compensate for grief and care.
We lost a very special sister and best friend the day you were called home so suddenly and without warning..
Loved with a love beyond all telling,
Missed with a grief beyond all tears.
Goodnight and God Bless Pauline I love you and miss you so much…xxx

Re-united with her loving parents and brothers Peter and John, sister Patrica. Missed by her loving husband Peter also daughter Susan and Ebony her granddaughter,  son Anthony, and Grandsons.. Not forgetting son – in – law Brian and Granddaughter Julie.

All of you Rest In Peace!

Platypus Milk: How It Could Combat Superbugs

Platypus milk could help combat one of humanity’s looming problems, antibiotic resistance, scientists say.

The weird creatures have a duck’s beak, venomous feet and are one of only two mammals able to lay eggs.

They’ve now identified why, and say it could lead to the creation of a new type of antibiotic.

Platypus are monotremes – a tiny group of mammals able to both lay eggs and produce milk.

They don’t have teats, instead they concentrate milk to their belly and feed their young by sweating it out.

This feeding system is thought to be linked to its antibacterial properties, according to the scientists.
