“Honestly, the whole thing is ludicrous. The whole idea was to free up homes with excess bedrooms. people who have lived in them 17 years or more are the ones likely to have the excess rooms.

I don't agree with the bedroom tax in any shape or form but honestly what a mess!”

“Its unlikely social services would have been allowed to remove the child without working with the parents first. Its highly likely they would have had a hospital dietician, the child's GP and other medical staff involved over quite a lengthy period of time.

It would then only be at the point when the parents where missing appointments or not adhering to the diet that the case would have gone before a judge. Often that judge would have given them another period of time to get their act together before making a final decision.

Obviously we do not know the full case but I seriously doubt any court would remove a child instantly without working with the family first.”

“A good rational response that appreciates what social services actually do and that taking a child away from their family is a last resort. Are you lost? HuffPo is usually the domain of the incoherent.”

“We used to make mine ours a scary dinner, using food colouring, god forbid, we would have social services at the door nowadays. Black mash, red beans and anything gross we could turn green.

We would then get them all dressed up and take them round the relatives trick or treating. Back home by 7pm then an hour or so in the bath trying to get the colour off that we'd slapped all over their faces which had gone into their hairline, to make them look scary.

Those were the days lol.”

“Is that true Apollo ?

Seriously we have an influx of these false widows in Suffolk at the moment. Plenty of bites, not amounting to much but the blighters are everywhere. One woman even put her hand in her dressing gown pocket and got bit. Localised swelling, pins and needles etc.

Now its not just these but these have made me ten times worse. I have been told all my life don't be silly spiders can't hurt you but if you freak over them you freak. I can't help it.

So how many conkers do I need and do I need them in the hallway too. I have a dog so do they need to be on the floor or will the wndow sil suffice ?”

apollo99 on Oct 8, 2013 at 04:30:41

“I sorry your having spider trouble.
I put conkers on the carpet by the doors
in corners and on the window sills and it
does work. If  you are having serious problems put masking tape down stickyside up this will act as a physical barrier spiders can not cross.you might end up with a lot of dead spiderrs.
down here its mainly those large wolf spiders we have coming indoors now that the nights are getting cold..good luck”

“Vettel would be throwing all his toys out of his pram if Hamilton had joined them. He has them where he wants them.

Hamilton is a good driver but so is Webber. Webber has been treated like a 2nd class citizen by Red Bull, he deserved better.You treat someone like they have, you can't expect a top performance.

Even Hamilton goes off his game everytime he and Nicole break up.

Its down to mental ability too and I am afraid the blames lays with Red Bull in my opinion.”

“Might be his driving skill but can't be sure Webbers car is 100% the same. My son works for Ferrari F1 in Italy , Alonso and Massa do have differences on their cars, mainly dictated by the drivers themselves.  It also strikes me as strange the baby red bull ( as I call him ) who's replacing Webber, since the announcement is doing extremely well. ”

“I make a lovely homemade veggie soup but don't use milk or cream. Using root veg I make it in a huge saucepan and serve with fresh hot bread. Perfect for those cold winter evenings.

Nothing is wasted because the remainder is blended down and used as a base for my stews, just adding a few extra spices,along with some quartered potatoes. I then sear the meat to hold in the flavour and finally add the dumplings.

A whole new dish, just as delicious and perfect for those catering for both veggies and meat eaters too. I have two pots going, one for me as I prefer no meat but a bigger one for everyone else loves their meat.

Cheap, cheerful but above all, delicious.”

“Agreed i love making my french style soup from a contraption that's about 100 years old, the advantage with vegetable soup is that it can easily last a week and as you say you make loads of changes to it. What i used to do is of prepare loads of vegetable concentrate which is what a thick soup is and freeze it great for a starter in winter, and saves on time.”

Fancy, plush weddings that cost a small fortune, followed by fabulous honeymoons are lovely if that's what you want and can afford but if you haven't got that kind of budget try pleasing yourself and those dearest to you instead of all and sundry.”
