Election 2015

Very true. In 17 years at our address we have only twice had a prospective candidate at the door and one of those said he knocked on ours by mistake!

Peter.....if you dont vote you cant complain about any of them.......if all those who didnt vote because they wont make a difference, voted......there would be no safe seat

You're right of course, but I may just moan about it anyway. Still, we have a changing population here due to immigration so they may not have the same allegiences. Hopefully.

Dear Google, why on earth is VE Day marked on your calendar? Am I supposed to go to Buckingham Palace and wave a flag?

70th anniversary perhaps? Or in anticipation of a UKIP victory?!

I know I should vote and all votes can make a difference but my area has always been a safe seat for a party I don't want to vote for so I really can't see the point. I might just sit this one out.

I had a steak bridie yesterday. 

I read that as 'birdie' first off and thought it odd...

I ordered a burger and chips in a restaurant once, thought the description strange but ignored it and all I got was the meat and the chips! Where's me bloody bun?? There could be a common denominator here...

Lack of Drinking Fountains in London Parks

Just take some tap water with you? Public drinking fountains are a bit redundant now with such abundant resourses available at minimal cost but will be expensive to maintain.

Anyone take multi-vitamins? Any recommendations?

This highlights a few issues to me - a healthy diet should give you all you need, but does it? Do we truly get all the promised benefits of 'fresh' fruit and veg after it has been transported in some cases thousands of miles before it ends up on our plates? Now I'm sure there are a few Good Life types amongst us but lets face it most of us buy from the major supermarkets and with the best intentions their food is hardly freshly harvested. So is frozen better? Or are supplements the way to go? Health benefits have been shown to be gained from adding vitamins to cereals and bread so to my mind a multivitamin has to be worth considering. As to being a waste of money, they hardly cost a fortune so why not? There must be plenty of other things that cost more that could be considered wasteful by some. It's personal preference. 

Finally time to accept the awful truth.

Waycat - you sound like you enjoy it too much to give up. Perhaps what you need is a good break. Agree with other comments above - a rethink on your training and your goals seems due and perhaps you are pushing yourself too hard.

That's fine as it fits nicely with the story today about sedentary jobs...


Where would you fit in?

West Dorset. I like Dorset. Thing is though, do I really want to live with lots of similar people? Variety is the spice of life and all that.

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

Why not ditch the forum and just have adverts!
