May 21st 2011 10:48AM I have this problem and one thing that hasn't been mentioned in this article is facial hair. A I got into my mid thirties onwards the hair on my face became thicker and more coarse. This leads to breakouts around each follicle which become very painful and infected. I have no idea what to do about it. Tweezing is labourious (UK sp), waxing exacerbates the problem, creams and shaving just leave ugly stubble. My Doctor considers it a cosmetic and not a medical problem so I guess I'm stuck with daily tweezing and cover-up make up for the breakouts.
May 14th 2011 1:26PM There's no denying that Helen looks a very attractive woman for her age with an enviable figure. However, other woman shouldn't feel too downhearted or jealous. Unlike most woman of her age Helen hasn't had any children. We could possibly all have bikini bodies if we swapped the stretched marked tummies and breasts that carrying and feeding our offspring frequently leave us, for her glamorous lifestyle.
Still, I'm not knocking her, for one thing I don't know if childlessness was a choice or not (that's not my business) and regardless she still looks great and has terrific style and poise that should be an inspiration to all women 'of a certain age'.
Jan 9th 2011 6:38AM When I was a child I was an incredibly picky eater and I can tell you it is at least 90% the parents fault.
Apparently from when I was newborn I was a slow feeder and not particularly interested in food after I was weaned but unfortunately my parents made the classic mistake.
Instead of remembering the mantra 'they'll eat when they're hungry' they panicked that I was not eating enough and started 'supplementing' my diet with treats and alternatives so by the time I started school to even look at a vegetable on my plate would genuinely make me retch.
Now I am a parent myself and I have learned from their mistakes. We sit around the table together, we all have more or less the same meal and no alternative is offered. Voila, none of them are in the least picky (and gradually I have got much better too as a result, although I still have issues with certain food types).
Nov 7th 2010 6:32PM You're quite right, J.McIntosh, I'm sorry. I don't have a single 'bran' cell but I do patently have considerably more 'brain' cells than yourself.
Therefore, I feel quite qualified to point out that X Factor is an ENTERTAINMENT show. It's not real life, you know!
If you don't like it, fine, there are plenty of other channels for you to choose from. Why are you wasting your time insulting a show that is enjoyed by millions of people?
So sad that you feel you need to comment on a TV show you don't even watch. Or maybe you do? Whichever, your comment is pointless, unnecessary and misspelled.
Nov 2nd 2010 8:07AM I knew someone who had a Julietta and then 10 years later had a Juliana!
Mind you, they were quite a strange family anyway but just as bad were two brothers I know whose wives both gave birth to sons a few weeks apart just a few months after their father died. Stupidly, they both decided to name the little cousins after the deceased man.
Maybe just about understandable if they lived a distance apart but the kids go to the same school!!
Oct 11th 2010 6:58AM Wow Joe, I'm no fan of Vanilla Ice (or Tattoos, or rap music) but your comment is unbelievably nasty and way over the top.
Whatever he did in the past he now appears to be a dedicated family man who clearly works hard.
You should really consider a stint in therapy to try and get to the bottom of what made you full of such vitriol, because it's really concerning me that you are at large with such a massive chip on your shoulder.
Sep 5th 2010 9:17AM I would much rather live next door to the Beckham's than the nasty, mean-spirited people posting on here!
Exactly what have these two people done to deserve such vitriol? It makes me feel ashamed that Britain has become a country that has so many jealous, unpleasant people living in it. It's a pity those kind of people didn't pack up and move to another country then Britain would be a much better place to live!
Apr 14th 2010 6:55PM Oh, I remember the last Tory government alright. I also remember the state the country was in before they got in. Rubbish piling up in the streets, the dead left unburied, unions destroying what was left of British manufacturing- we were the laughing stock of Europe.
It's true -times were tough under the last Tory Government - it had to be to sort out the mess we were in.
It will also have to be tough this time but absolutely necessary if we don't want to slide completely down the toilet.
Fair enough, Keane have a right to chose who they lend their song to but who in their right mind would want to be associated with this lame duck government.
Feb 28th 2010 6:33AM I really can't believe what I'm hearing.
Is everybody suggesting that we should only listen to music with PC lyrics?
Maybe songwriters should submit their work to the Government for sanctioning first.
Look, surely the art of songwriting is all about representing the human condition in all it's forms and the truth whether we like it or not is that some women (black or otherwise) do have relationships like this. By trying to whitewash this fact we go down a dangerous path.
Dec 25th 2009 6:59PM My opinions on colours tend to vary with my mood and the time of year. What colour I might be drawn to one day might put me off another.
I don't know if that makes me weird or this test a total waste of time. Also I tend to go for certain shades within colours. The primary blue shown does nothing for me but I like sky blue, magenta - no way, but baby pink I generally love. Maybe this is why I've never found a job I love!
