    Yes indeed, about every 6 weeks – I get an hour for £40 and it is the best £40 I ever spend 🙂

    Free speech doesn’t include hate speech? That’s a very odd statement. Stopping people saying they hate something doesn’t stop them hating it (anymore than stopping them saying they love something would stop them loving it). Given this, it’s surely better to let them speak and know where things stand and manage matters accordingly?

  • It does depend on which warehouse is holding the item originally. I’ve had several things over the years where it turned out to be held in a European warehouse and the minimum time time even with expedited delivery would be 4-5 days. They were transferred first to an UK warehouse before onward delivery.

    The emergency…[Read more]

    Horrid thing to be involved with.

    It sounds like you did what you could, and kept your head. If you’d not been there doing what you could, maybe a young mum would have gone in the water and the tragedy would be even worse. Well done mate, its right to be upset, but you did exactly the right thing I suspect.

    Go round theirs, hug.

    There is science to show it can and does work.

  • mel replied to the topic I've given up diet drinks in the forum Health 5 months, 1 week ago

    I think that is a pretty small sample size, but I quit Diet drinks a 18 months ago too.

    I was told that when you drink a diet drink your body prepares for sugar, as it tastes sweet. No sugar comes, so your body is left all unbalanced. Also, your body does not know what to do with chemicals, it does not recognise it as “food” and therefore puts it…[Read more]

  • Just wondering if you’re aware of Masai Barefoot Technology and their (very pricey) shoes. It might be worth a browse on their website.

    They take some getting used to but they are very good.
