4 foods that discourage sleep

From freedigitalphotos.net
  1. Juice: The natural sugar, fructose, results in an unnecessary energy hit. 
  2. Artificial food colourings and preservatives: These have long been linked to hyperactivity. A study found three-year-olds and eight-year-olds who drank a drink containing additives and the preservative sodium benzoate were hyperactive. The three-years-olds were far more sensitive to the stimulating effects and symptoms appeared in as little as one hour after ingestion. 
  3. Too much salt: Excess salt causes a child to wake up in the night, so aim for low-salt (120mg/100gr) products. (The Australian Division of World Action on Salt and Health (AWASH) recommends an upper limit of 250mg of salt per day for toddler between the age of one and three.)
  4. Dried fruit: This is usually a healthy snack option but it is also high in sugar, salt and sulphites (preservative).

Brivis Heater - Error Code #69

My Brivis HX23 Heater broke down this week.  H01 Code #69.  This code was not even listed in the User Manual!  Searching around the web and here is what I found: Secret Reset: This is not in the User Manual.  On the networker controller press FUNCTION > 1 > 4 keys and the screen will go blank and come back on after 30 seconds, this has rebooted the main PCB and reset the fault code. Use this with caution as too much gas build up could cause an explosion. Use it only after the unit has enough time to air out the gas build up. What is Code #69 or any other unpublished codes?  The best way to find out is to open up the heater unit.   There is a little LCD on the PCB showing what error exactly is. (Note: Opening up the unit may void your warranty.)
