    Will the real bullies please stand up

In addition, when responding, you give them credit when none is due. You send traffic to their competitor forums and the other senseless devices designed...

    Take Out Chinese Food Recommendation?

    I love Chinese, I have been to most of the Chinese restaurants in BA and can only recommend China Garden as an excellent Chinese kitchen that serves authentic dishes that have not been 'Argentinized' so barely recogniseable. The food is good and reasonably priced - they also deliver! Riobamba...

    Swine Flu is it a diversion?

    No! You seem to have missed the point - I ask questions (mainly for the purposes of good search engine rankings), this article was taken from my own blog, not posted by me, my main opening statement attacks the media coverage - it is not balanced and unhelpful.

    Swine Flu is it a diversion?

    PS. I really am very interested in people’s opinions about the flu and their decision making process when deciding to travel or not - I am only poking a little fun at MOXON, I note that you are a prolific ‘poster’ – ‘threader’ – what do we call ourselves – obviously you like to be considered a...

    Swine Flu is it a diversion?

    You oversimplify the operation of political spin, but I do not have time to debate the 'brief or not to brief' argument or the mechanics of media-relations (tongue in cheek) used by the ‘K-rites’ to limit their exposure to a malevolent media. It would be pointless and silly to give you any more...

    Swine Flu is it a diversion?

    You are quite right about one thing - during the elections, the government did its double best to keep the flu quiet. Shortly after the election that changed, with the media stirred /briefed into frenzy and as most doctors will tell you that has caused panic amongst the general population and...

    Looking for Accomodation for my nieces

    Peri, there is a new company called Room Service or Rooms or something like that advertising in the Herald, other than that, if the girls can find a viable room mate, they would be wise to seek out 3 beds (difficult to rent) via the various agencies and negotiate hard (current climate) looking...

    Just arrived ,, Go the pumas

    I love Kettleball and must say that it is the only form of training that I have found excellent on old and tired joints and wonderful for overall muscle strength, suppleness and development, particularly core strength - my pops taught me and picked up this art in the 1950s and he is the fittest...
