Snap - we throw our slugs and snails over the back fence too. What annoys me most about them is the feckers make a bee-line for any food related plants we grow but they never touch the weeds! And that's another thing - when it's really hot and my plants struggle, how come weeds always seem to manage just fine?

Very true, dry stone walling is certainly in demand. One day perhaps, there are obstacles to overcome first. In the meantime, I'll just keep tapping slowly at those keys!

Edited due to incompetence...

The BBC news pointlessly reporting on location when they could do the same job from the studio and not waste our licence fee.

Charging VAT on fuel duty - are they taking the p**s?

Slugs - what is the point of them?

I'd love to do something more practical, especially something with older buildings. Have a chance to live somewhere in the country, perhaps stone masonry or dry stone walling. Maybe even thatching. Would probably take a few years I guess and take a big drop in pay but it would be great to have some tangible evidence of my productivity unlike the computerised rubbish I do now! Fat chance...

Maintaining/improving stomach acid levels may help along with taking probiotics as allegedly this is where your first line of defence is against infection. I have found in the years when I have been organised enough to take echinacea in winter I have had fewer and easier colds. I'll definitely try and remember to take it this year!

So if that was the case then, can you trick your immune system into doing its thing at a more convenient time so these disappointments don't occur? Say, some complete rest a couple of weeks before the expensive annual holiday. I too regularly have bouts of cold/flu on holiday - we were skiing in Finland once and I was burning up so I stayed in bed in the hotel with the patio doors wide open - it was -26C outside and I was still sweating buckets!

Could it be that the immune system holds off fighting illness (viruses and the likes) whilst you are working hard (running or jobwise) and when it feels you ease off a bit (whilst tapering or starting your holiday) takes the opportunity to do its job? Just a theory, could be total bo**ocks...

Exercise good

I'm sure walking or cycling to work is excellent but during the heat of the summer a bit of air-con is rather nice and during the cold of winter my comfy heated leather seats are fantastic!

Surely nothing can be worse than John Lydon doing Country Life?

Tongue in cheek it may be but that must be the biggest sell-out of all time.

Iggy Pop springs to mind.

I also feel that too many people resort to swearing... I want to promote the campaign for more picturesque speech.

Jenny - what's so terrible about swearing? Swear words are just that - words - I'm pretty sure there are many non-swear words that could cause offence. There are times when a good swear really does help!

What's with the massive video advert halfway down the threads?

Why not ditch the forum and just have adverts!
