Posted in: Tempted to try a no-buy year? Here are tips from people doing it See in context

My advice.

Buy everything you want in order to have a great life.

Live fully now,and make the most of every moment.

As long as you don't harm anyone else,just go for it!

An amazing man, creating subversive characters,who had to relocate to London in order to produce a regular show, thanks to Lord Grade (look him up).

Labyrinth was awesome,just badly promoted.

The recent films,revived by the bloke who looks like Seth Roger,are pretty good..

I work surrounded by these guys,so props.

Posted in: Prevent picky eating by kids with these top tips from Japanese day care facilities See in context

It's interesting that feeding very young kids smooth peanut butter virtually eradicates peanut allergies in later life.

My children, growing up between here and the U.K,were fed literally everything,and now they have certain dislikes,but no allergies.

Certainly, being breastfed if possible is great,too.

Alcohol has nothing to do with the febrile atmosphere at Roland Garros.

I watched ,and most spectators didn't have drinks,and didn't appear inebriated.

Just French-passionate and opinionated.

It was fantastique!

Posted in: Ask not what natto can do for you See in context

Natto is great.

As a Cornishman, replaces baked beans in my dietary regime.

I do break from unthinking tradition in adding ketchup,salad cream and popping it into my bread to add flavour,though.
