Shall I up the good life steaks?

Was giving a bit of thought to the avitars, when I first set the limits the froum was a bit of a ghost town so it was worht keeping them low. Now that it is quite active shall I up the limits a bit? Other wise we could end up with a forum full of barbaras.

Or am I being a big meanie and should I let us all become barbara.

I don't mind... but I'd prefer to have the pictures smaller. Otherwise people's personalised avatars get dwarfed!

I am counting on a new, improved bum when I become a Barbara! But maybe it does make sense to change things a bit. I'll just have to go to the gym.

Dare I point it out - there is a spell check on this page...

Anyway, I still don't know what this good life thing is all about. Am I missing something? Like TV for example? Is it a programme or what, and if so, what is it about? (Stupid question, I know it's about the good life...)

Usually when I don't get it, it's because I don't watch telly.

The good life is a british sitcom that was made in the 1970's. the basic premise centred around a couple who lived in surbiton, a london suburb, and tried to be self sufficient. They grew crops, kept animals, a goat called geraldene and some chickens.

They lived next door to another couple who were the opposite and in a lot of ways found their life a bit of an embarissment.

I wish I was! I lived in London from 1977 to 81, and that was after I'd left school! But I still managed to miss that. Fact is, I grew up without TV and never really got into the habit later. But then, I remember stuff like The hitchhiker's guide on radio the first time round, and everybody else remembers it on telly...

The complete series are available on DVD :wink: You have some catching up to do Ina or you'll never get the in jokes!! (Posh Margot voice: "That's the last time I play the tart for you Jerry!") England expects...oh..um..Scotland expects every man...um...woman....well..you get the idea! :lol:

We had to import the DVD and can only play it on my daughter's computer as our DVD player only works for our region (Bugger!).
