oh pixie, ROFL! we have house rules about no farting or burping at the table but really between my husband & my 8yr old son i dont stand even a fighting chance . . . at least it is done with a sense of humour, & they dont indulge when we have guests - unless, of course, one (or more) of the guests is another juvenile male, sigh! - jennifers
An overlooked face in the crowd? Hardly, JR, and I'm not Bel. - Grow up jack
When I have guests over I ask them to use the outside toilet for poohing. This may be discriminatory~ at the moment, well for the last three days I have an undiagnosed ,er , complaint... As I have already said before on this site, I have been a lesbian, and out, since 1977. Many holidays. In Europe, early 80s,we used to ask for a "matrimonale" in Italy?. I think that means a double bed. Never any trouble~ here or there travelling, except for a peeping tom on an island off Greece. We were known there as "anonomalia". - ro.watson
I'm afraid your explanation doesn't really ';explain' if we accept that sexuality is something we are born with. Political, or any other, views are are arrived at after conscious (in some cases unconscioius) or sub conscious thought. It is the equivalent of discriminating against a person because of their skin colour! How abhorrent would we find that? - Madge
Absolutely fantastic, its amazing what these gardeners and landscapers can do. What imagination, what fantastic imagination. I absolutely love it. I wish they would come and work their magic on my barren front and backyards. - Shawn
No backchat, no insults, no farting or burping at the table. No nose picking & treat others how you would like to be treated yourself. Do your bit around the house, be grateful for what you've got and always share your lollies - Pixie
I am no one's alter ego.
I pass on what I am given by the Divine.
People are free to take this guidance or not. - John Jay
How very sensible Helen, the spare bed is a great idea! I would definitely rather they were inside my house than in a car out the front with the neighbours watching on. - Carolyn
I am about to embark on my Dip Ed to teach secondary students. I have read a lot of the horrors teachers have to endure & sometimes wonder if this is the right decision. It does beggar belief that politicians don't make education a top priority and pay their teacher's well for a job that has so many repercussions for this country's future workforce and decision makers. - Pixie
How ridiculous - The " lodge’s policy was for same-sex couples to be put into a room with two king-single beds " - I'm fairly sure you can have sex in a king single bed! And "We have to protect our other guests.” - so they can have wild noisy sex and that's okay??? I thought NZ recently legislated to allow same sex marriages? Obviously no one will ever spend their honeymoon at the Ruskin's establishment. - Carolyn
