One of my children drew a rainbow at school. Should I be concerned?

Most things that I put in my frigerator are being frigerated for the first time. Works for me!

#MeToo. I don't think I've ever read the instructions for one, so I was worried. Panic over!

Concerned that she's not heterosexual or that she will join the tacky-dressed people in Bang Bus and ride around Camden pestering innocent pedestrians? I swear I will forget my trauma and go to Camden again to see your face behind the bus window, sitting there watching your daughter to stay safe.

No, I understand that one of the contenders for the Labour leadership has a proposal that combines many of Labour's priorities: the young; education; the NHS; gender. The proposal is to pay teachers a bonus for every child they persuade to transition. Obviously any child drawing a rainbow will be targeted for this progressive treatment.

(And I never said "she." Tut, tut. Someone needs their thoughts reprogramming!)

In WWII did English women really put out for American soldiers bearing chocolate? American chocolate?? Hershey’s??? Has anyone tasted it? I know WWII, and Nazis, and Hitler were bad. But jeez nothing can be so bad that you have to eat American chocolate.

The Hershey's thing is chocolate?? Seriously, I tried it long ago, when my sister brought some sweets home from America. We agreed that it tasted worse then the communist times' "chocolate substitutes" (that's how they were named on the label).

American food is generally excellent. But American chocolate is one of their disappointments.

have any of you had such machines flying around your garden (without informing u first), basically a flying super chain saw two to three meter tall cutting wildly in trees, and incredible noise. it was when it was flying towards my house in strong wind, jumping up and down that I got a tad worried about the tails on my roof

It is not every day I am up climbing trees, but it happens...will be considering buying a helmet now.

You have likely heard about blade runner, but have u seen 10-blade runner? This tool excellent for a movie, even a comedy! If no wind supposedly excellent to trim tall hedges!

Compared to english cuisine, the cuisine of any other country is excellent.
