Re: The Bloody Media

You've been reading the Daily Mail/Express/Telelgraph and watching too much ITV! :lol: :lol: :lol: I agree with you totally (apart from the Marilyn Manson fans - just joking). I've said it in several places but I'm really pissed off with overpaid, bone idle journalists who create news from their com...

Re: Are men more attached to watching television than women are?

When we lived in Manc my OH got up every morning and turned on the TV. We went off to work and the first thing he did on return was .... turn on the TV. When I moved up here I had no TV for several months - bliss :cooldude: and when OH moved up later we agreed that the TV wouldn't be on unless we sp...

Re: FUNNY ?????????

I'm soooo fed up with this. The issue of whether they should have said/done it aside - isn't this yet another example of the media creating news?

Re: Is Ebay a rip - off?

I presume that a lot of people add something to their p+p charges to cover some of this. That would explain why some charges seem so ridiculously high. I've only sold a couple of gig tickets on ebay and handed them over in person, but as a regular buyer I'm constantly amazed at the variance in charg...

Great cheese scones

We've been very busy all morning removing an old shower. Come lunchtime we realised we'd not made any bread! Quick Google and I found a recipe for quick cheese scones.

Re: Olive oil polish

I use a blend of olive oil, linseed oil and beeswax, with a little lavender EO in for smell. Just like the old-fashioned polish my aunt used to use with out the chemicals so highly prized in the 50s and 60s.
