FG will be down for five to ten minutes from 23:30 GMT tonight whilst we reboot the system.

This should fix the annoying Error 500 messages that randomly block a post.

Last year Sam Bailey the woman ex-prison warder from Leicester did stand out as having a terrific voice, as did a couple of other people. But this year, I reckon there's a dearth of talent in the UK ! This last Saturday I very nearly switched off the TV in the middle of the programme - nobody seemed to be singing totally in tune and most of them have been infected by this 'improvisation' thing where they deviate from the basic melody to such an extent that the song is unrecognisable, I...

All these labs. were on the ground floor of one side of the school building. Actually on the side where... [Read More]

Oven chips

Absolutely tasteless. I went out for lunch today with a friend and although the chips looked delicious and were "perfectly formed", they smelt of nothing and tasted of nothing. Has anyone had an oven chip that isn't like eating chip shaped card?

This thread or one similar may have been posted before, but I cannot see it so I'll just carry on !

It makes me smile to start a day with gloomy clouds then part way through the morning the sun breaks through. The day seems to be so much better, and I notice that people seem a lot more friendly too !

Apparently Boots are producing a new line of perfumes/scents which have unusual smells - I believe one smells like the ash from your hearth ! Whatever turns you on, I say. So what smell or aroma would you like to preserve, that isn't already preserved ?

It's also the case that -- well, yes, so it would, empirically more likely affect African Americans. Also, understanding within political science, that people who register to vote the closer and closer one gets to Election Day tend to be less sophisticated voters, tend to be less educated voters, tend to be voters who are less attuned to public

Do you remember your dreams?

I had a dream last night that I remembered I'd had on a number of occasions recently. It seems to be centred around loneliness and, maybe, grief. I've been feeling emotionally "raw" for most of the day but I feel that perhaps the dreams are serving their purpose and bringing my feelings to the surface.

Do you think dreams have a purpose?
