    I shouldn't worry, this forum already exercises that rule so we should be used to it :)

    Hi John,
    It is such a difficult parameter to measure.
    How does one measure something so subjective as offence? It may be the one causing offence did it without any intention at all. The offended may be of a snowflake disposition?
    Perhaps we should all learn to forgive each other more since we all unintentionally fail in some way every day!
    I think the country is going in the wrong direction.
    We cannot be constantly wringing our hands for the wrongs of our ancestors 200+ years ago.
    regards
    D.

    You wouldn't like it, it's a film ;)
    The first film was great but everything after that was pants. The tv series was just awful and I was so angry with the actor that I went out with his girlfriend just to tick him off.

    At least you were kind enough to try. I am a lost cause with that genre.

    @ianpspurs Could you manage 1 min 22secs. There are no subtitles for me so I don’t know what it is telling you, and I believe The Queen sing a bit on it...

    Thanks, I have managed five years on from diagnosis, lost 7 stone 1or 2 more would be nice, but I’ve tried lower carbs but it upsets my other conditions so after several attempts I’m happy with what I do now, I think I’m going to put it down to stress, heat and thunderstorms!
