Will you wear the dress again????  If you can get maybe 4 wears out of it, then I might be tempted..................................

Xmas is looming

Motivation to run would be nice!!!  And joints that don't hurt - hoping santa can help with this!

'That' charity christmas song..........

Posted: 26/11/2014 at 13:05

I've been reading/hearing a lot about the Bandaid single, resurrected to raise funds to help stop the Ebola crisis.  The main thing that bugs me is that certain people/artists are now criticising this act of charity saying that it puts Africa in a bad light, the lyrics are patronising etc etc. 

Do many people really take that much notice of lyrics, or are most people buying it simply because they want to do their little bit to help and it's a reasonably catchy pop song?  I mean, all of the haters that are criticising (the artists who have recorded a new version) weren't doing anything about raising money before Sir Bob got involved, were they??  At the end of the day, isn't the main point that money is being raised to help a cause?????

Putting it out there, I just think there's a lot of ungrateful nonsense going on here!

Strictly 2014

I went a good few years ago, with my mum, to the one in Manchester and it was incredible.  Luckily, we had pretty good seats, but I could imagine if you were much further away than us, it'd be a bit pants.  But, if Mrs P is a massive fan, then you can't really go wrong with tickets to the tour.


When are you happiest? Satisfied? Relaxed?

All three when I'm horse riding - it's just amazing!  

Strictly 2014

I think I'd be disappointed if Pixie was in the final.  The reason for this is that she is already an incredible dancer - she has had dance training - so I think she has a very unfair advantage over everyone else.

Don't get me wrong, she's amazing to watch, but she's just too good and comes across as really insincere.

My final four would be Frankie, Simon, Caroline and Mark - with Frankie to win.

Strictly 2014

I concur - it was a fab night and it seemed like all the dancers upped their games, except maybe Sunetra, which was a shame really.  I thought that even Judy was much improved.

Nessie - I agree, I'll definitely be watching Simon's Argentine Tango again - it was incredible.  Probably the best dance of the night for me. 

Personally I never watch the singers, I'm just interested in the dancing, so fast forward those bits.

So, who does everyone think will win?  For me, I'd like Frankie to win, or Simon.

Yes he did Andyp - I was shocked!!!!!

I'm a bit late to this thread, but would like to say how much more enjoyable Strictly is since they axed Bruce!  I also love Claudi and think she works really well with Tess.

Think Judy should have been in the dance off last night - Alison is a way better dancer than her and should have gone through to Blackpool.  I don't dislike Judy, but she doesn't have a single rhythmical bone in her body!

Try adding some brisk walking up hills, that will help massively and I'll bet it gets your heart rate up.

Can you not run with the dog?

Dog Biting

The thing about bulls and the colour red is a load of tosh - they are colour blind. Dogs also only see in certain colours. 

For dogs, I would imagine they only chase runners as they are 'running' - it's an instinct thing - prey generally runs away......

As for bulls some breeds are more inclined to be aggressive and chase, whilst others aren't.
