Re: Lower cholesterol levels without $$$products?

Definitely agree with the cut out bad fats and do more exercise advice. I like Micheal Pollan's advice "Eat food, not too much, mostly plants."

Re: Spam again

Hi Maggie, I thought the log in problems were sorted. Doesn't look that way :( Darn it, will have to look into that when I get a moment. Of course I don't mind you killing a lot of the spammers Sue, I wish they would find another way of earning money. I've noticed a kitchen one again and zapped it t...

Re: Spam again

I've been trying to zap them as soon as they come in but you are right, it does seem to be quite regular at the moment. Perhaps the bad weather is keeping people indoors on their computers?
