• Playing the devil here, but President Trump is well proving that the USA is the biggest bully in the world too! Being the best brings a responsibility for showing care and understanding, not an “I’m all right Jack” attitude! Greatness is shown by co-operation and working together for the good of all, not stomping your feet like a spoilt child and…[Read more]

  • Little Miss Muffet lol There was a spider in one of my waterbutts last year which I got to know over the summer. I may well be wrong, but it seemed relaxed when I talked to it, explaining that I was only taking water and not to worry. I was so sad in the Autumn when I left the cover off for a couple of minutes one time. I think a bird got it.…[Read more]

    I think a lot of what you say is true here Mamie too. I remember, although it was a long time ago, I moved to Leicester, which is a bigger city to the Lincoln I live near, for a training course. I found I could happily wander around without fear, even in the evening. I only crime I came across was some overnight vandalism in the entire year I was…[Read more]

  • I think that has a lot to do with things Mikki. When I was little here, I grew up with the impression that Glasgow in Scotland was a very dangerous city. I was a bit worried when we visited, as I usually walk around from place to place. I wasn’t there long, but everyone local I met was friendly.  Most of what I knew was from films (one…[Read more]

  • I think there were sometimes assumptions made when things got really technical Mamie, but there were a lot of highly qualified people about, and you never knew without asking, how qualified anyone was, or often, even what their job was, not matter what their gender, colour, religion or ethnic background. Equality was almost put before everything…[Read more]

  • It’s interesting you find that Mamie. I have found similar things happen with other online situations. In real life though, in the job I used to work in there was equality. To some extent allowances for personal differences as the job could get physical with heavy lifting occasionally as well as the more technical aspects in which both male and…[Read more]

    Hi Krystal, welcome to the forum 🙂

    You should find yourself more at home here. Just join in the fun!

    Congratulations Mamie, That’s wonderful news!

    Don’t worry about the time. It sounds like you will have another year dating anyway.

    Hi Ronnie, welcome 🙂

    It does sound like you have got into one of those situations in which things start running in circles. You could try a message to staff, if you haven’t already. Whoever has admin rights should be able to sort the problem. Otherwise re-instate your old email address? I suspect that wouldn’t work but may be worth…[Read more]

  • I am afraid I am a bit too nerdy here as I look at the odds and resultingly seldom bet money on anything. I never bet more than I can afford to lose which is very little (I wonder if this is why my son ended up being an accountant lol).

  • I think in any short term relationship, if things start to become hard work, then it is time to consider the options. I know things are never easy but if you are both working at it then it will seem much easier. Here it doesn’t!

  • Well not in the USA but that does not mean things don’t happen here. I think it is the same everywhere – having to be streetwise. I have noticed over the years that things happen really quickly and unless you see the little, almost non noticeable signs, you can miss it totally, and hopefuly not be part of it. It is like car accidents. Anyone with…[Read more]

    A good comprehensive list Bunny. I think I have probably been in most, if not all of those places over the years. So many things depend on who the other person is and how they are behaving. Few people have total control over their emotions, which have so much bearing on communication.

  • No Rhonda, I didn’t do the couple of miles in heels, I wore flatter more comfortable shoes as the walk was over, at points, rough ground. I have worn heels and walked all afternoon in the city, so perhaps well over a mile, but, although I don’t find it too uncomfortable as I never wear anything too high, I find one afternoon can wear them badly.

  • Probably For Attention Of.

  • I haven’t noticed it as a fashion either, although is more common as muslims are more common. It does remind me of when I was young though as lots of women wore headscarves in those days. Usually older ones as it was an old fashion. I do have a couple of pretty scarves, but my plan was to wear across my shoulders rather than head. They would…[Read more]

  • 10 minutes to fit in the shop? That reminds me of the time I bought my walking boots. They needed to be perfect as I would likely walk miles over rough terrain. It took me about an hour in all and I went through two assistants as one clocked off for lunch lol. I am glad I took the time though as the boots I got are perfect. One reason I don’t…[Read more]

  • A lot of good suggestions have been made, but not the one which worked with me so I will suggest. I started art, painting and drawing. I did do lessons, which when they ended (due to government cutbacks) we class members started our own art group. It gets me out meeting people I would not otherwise meet and to places I would be unlikely to go. I…[Read more]

  • Hi Curly, Welcome from the other side of the pond over here in the Uk (or is the pond the even bigger Pacific from your side lol).  There are a few of us here living in the Uk and europe, so there are girls from all over. I am one of the older generation too, but agree with Test, we learn from each other
