Apparently so!

I've been scammed! I feel abused I shall be having words with all your local slugs so they make a beeline to your air bricks...

I live in a modern house so can't indulge myself in old furniture but instead buy old art which fits in fine plus antiques such as vases. I like Doulton Lambeth stoneware as it's reasonably priced, generally dated and always signed so you can tell the artist and the assistant which is as important to me as the piece itself.

That's certainly bold! If you haven't been already, I'd thoroughly recommend a visit to a Philip Webb house, http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/standen-house-and-garden which has lots of it's original owners furnishings plus original William Morris wallpapers (careful though, they contain arsenic!) and WAS Benson lamps. It's a stunning house in a beautiful location. Do you have any Arts and Crafts furniture to go with your new wallpaper?

How can this happen?

Am guess this is about the video in the bbc news. The idiot driver should be banned, neutered and incarcerated for at least 5 years. Typical Audi driver. Since BMWs became a bi of a Knobs car the knobs have am started driving Audi instead. I wonder which marque they'll do down next?

 Definitely a Volvo. The mark of car though doesn't really have anything to do with it. An arse can drive any car.

How can this happen?

Shocking video and shocking result. With it being a busy road, you'd have thought other drivers would have witnessed it and perhaps followed the car to see who it was and report them. Utter cowards.

Just something I threw together...

I like to make veggie soup with whatever we have and mash it. Tonight's has onion, parsnip, potato, sweet potato, swede, celeriac, carrot, brocolli and peas. A few slices of a spelt boule and a bottle of red. I did have a squash but couldn't be bothered to peel it.

Any Agatha Christie fans?

We recorded it and watched all three in one go and really enjoyed it! But the best thing on the box not only over Christmas but for some time was Shaun the Sheep - I was close to wetting myself!

Always been more a Conan Doyle fan than Christie.

I'm thinking of entering someone else's wife.

Is this allowed?

Probably best to get permission from her husband first! Nice turn of phrase!!

Hi Eddie - don't cut out meals, that's a sure way to eat things you shouldn't! Fill up on salad - plenty of tomatoes, peppers, red onion, cucumber and a protein, a tin of tuna or chicken breast. I like olives and olive oil but be careful there as it is easy to pour on a lot of calories! You could always add raw carrot for some crunch. You could also make a big batch of veggie soup and have that at work, use some spray oil if you need to fry the onions or just cook them in a little water first.

I am grateful for your advice and the advice of everyone else, I will probably take a bit from each of you.

That's the ticket! A stone and a half isn't so bad, at least you are tackling it now rather than if your weight really got out of control. I agree about the beer, I would struggle to give that up, and crisps, it's all about moderation although System-J is right, beer calories are nutritionally empty but they are good for the soul and that counts too!

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

Why not ditch the forum and just have adverts!
