Lol, thread resurrection much?

I think the OP may have been a troll.

Re: Opinions needed!

I'm having an argument online with some people and I wanted to get some other opinions... Would you advertise for free for your company? As you all know, I live in China. I teach here. A lot of the schools want to use the 'foreign face' for advertising. I don't agree with it and would never do any ...

Re: knees

I get really bad knees sometimes too and I agree with what has been said by others- the trick is to keep exercising them!

Re: Treatment for mosquito bites

I found putting some aloe gel on stops the itching almost instantly. My other method is to scratch them off, it works but leaves a scar for a few months...obviously.

Re: Feeding the birds

I'm fairly certain that it will be safe to use for the birds. I've never made any myself but my mum gives fat balls to her garden birds mixed in with seeds and just keeps them stored in a bucket in the utility room and the birds love them. Doesn't seem to have any ill effects from not refridgerating...

Re: Share your successes 2012

I am seriously hoping I don't jinx the hell out of myself by being pleased with what I have achieved so far, so here goes- Getting started on the allotment with some real progress. Having worked hard enough and saved enough for the bank to approve me for a mortgage! Provisionally having found a hous...

Re: Discrediting very real isues with S***e

The haribo adverts have been reversing the roles of children and adults for years now, I remember one about 6 or more years ago that had the kid talking on the phone playing the mum while the real mum and dad were fighting over sweets in the sitting room and the little girl threatens to send them bo...

Cool. I'm afraid spiders and tarantulas freak me out. I know they shouldn't as I'm a lot bigger than they are and some of them have very pretty markings, but there's just something about the way they look and move that turns me into a big baby. :(

Re: get a post to acknowledge that I've read it!

Aha! It worked! I managed to remove the unread post, but had to read all the other unread posts on the forum first as I didn't seem to have the option of just marking a single sub-forum as read, I only had that option for the whole forum. But still, the post is gone and I am happy.
