Does anyone have any advice?
Always walk on the road edge of busy pavements and wash your hands regularly when removing laterals from tomato plants. ;-)
Lefty Loosey - Righty Tighty
Only put a pea sized blob of toothpaste on your toothbrush. Any more is wasteful.
Never ever put your age, personal interests or gender on a Resume or CV.
Always blow on the pie.
Always keep your hardware up to date with the latest drivers
Keep your eye on the ball and keep your head level and still.
Warm yoghurt up a little when adding it to cooking so it won't split.

Hard News: Where nature may win,
I've just got back home after spending the day in Greymouth. .....wow...very very tense situation in the town over there. I really feel for them.
I spoke with lots of my customers and they all are sick of the media attention. Quite a few comments along the lines of :
"...the Close Up guys would come over and raise their eyebrows in asking for a comment, we'd shake our heads and they'd back off, no words spoken. But the Yanks and Aussies would barge in with all guns blazing. Some of those pricks are gunna get smacked!...."
Also EVERYONE in Greymouth is talking about the lax attitudes of Pike Co. They are not looking good.
Not everyone down the mine were miners as well, some guys are just contractors with NO mining experience at all.
Hey can anyone find out what has happened? Comedy Central in NZ has pulled The Daily Show and the Colbert Report.
Sky TV has no idea, Telstra has no idea. MTV NZ are pulling out of NZ in a few months, that's probably a factor, but to can the 2 best shows with no announcement? Man that's just cruel!

Hmm, no disrespect, but maybe the osteopath was part of the problem.
He was right in sending you to a doctor.
Track down a book called Trick or Treatment by Simon Singh and Edzard Ernst, or Suckers by Rose Shapiro. Very enlightening books about alternative treatments.
I am surprised to hear that you go to an osteopath. One of your links - onegoodmove.org - seems to tear that stuff apart all the time.

Watership Down = Hands Down most traumatising film ever experienced by kids of our generation. That beating exposed heart in the drain pipe. Holy Sheeat. WTF were my parents thinking.
The Omen - Still have memories of sneaking down the stairs and peaking through the rails to see the journalist beheaded by the panes of glass.
Ahh I love reminiscing about reminiscing.
Craig..that's kinda the point I think we were trying to make. The whole labelling thing was getting ridiculous.
