Re: Over use of Anti depressants?

A friend of mine must take about 6 months off every year due to depression. He has a very understanding employer who send him off to various retreats for treatment.

Re: zero sun hours today

We had a similar problem with our solar power in November/december. So little sun that we had to ration the lights and used our old oil lamp and candles instead. And the DVD player was a no hoper. We are seriously thinking about trying a water turbine in the small stream in our land. Have to be fre...

Re: I knew I was no longer a bright young thing when...

I felt quite old last night when I walked past a nightclub at about 7pm and it had a sign saying 'open from 11pm til 3am' I thought, 'what on a Sunday' then remembered that 20 years ago I would have probably arrived just after kicking out time from the pubs - about midnight. :roll:

Re: weird and wonderful quotes

Estate Agents speak. 'Viewing Essential' :shock: You don't say! And here I was going to buy it without viewing it :roll:

Re: Angry with Debenhams

I think if you had emailed them to complain then they probably would have sent you a £20 voucher and apologised profusely. I understand why they wouldn't want to publish your comments for all to see.
