Citric Acid - The demon within

So it's coming up to spring time and you are still suffering from sore throats and snivels? Have you been taking that vitamin C and drinking a bucket load of orange juice? Think again - you may be harming yourself more than you know...

Chocolates, Hearts and Overpriced Flowers

I am going to come across as a cynical twisted old crow of a woman when you read this but those who know me know that this cannot be further from the truth. I absolutely hate Valentine's Day and I feel like a romantic leper if I announce this in company because everyone else in the world seems to find it fantastic. Except of course if you are single, widowed or suffering a break up - then you probably hate it as much as I do!
The weird thing is that whether I am loved up or single, I have always felt the same about Valentine's Day because I think it forces such false emotion between couples. Some women I know only get flowers once a year and that once falls on February 14th. It is hardly a surprise gesture when you are expecting it! The other 364 days a year, their partners fail to show any romance but suddenly feel compelled to turn into the milk tray man and join the masses of Valentine's day. It is ludicrous to force such behaviours but year upon year, the general public are sucked into paying for overpriced roses. Check my article out for a jumbo sized rant about why I think Valentine's Day is nothing to celebrate...

Quit working and live like a millionaire

I am fed up of getting emails from total strangers or fraudsters offering to deposit ridiculous sums of money into my bank account. Lately, I am getting emails from a firm that is dealing with unclaimed inheritance telling me that I have been left nearly a million pounds by a long lost relative who lived in India. Ahemmmm. I think not. Tell me, do you honestly think that people follow up on these scammy spammy emails? One person in particular is bugging me at the moment and he goes by the somewhat ridiculous name of Mr Gatuso Bird. Mr Bird is persistent in his communication with me because he feels that he has an offer I cannot refuse.Instead of getting angry, I have gotten creative, so please click on the title and take a look at this little poem - it is dedicated to all my blog fans that share the same irritations as me on the subject!
