Re: The C word

That's the million dollar question in many cases, Mr DinG. Why DO some people stay together? Fear? Finance? Feeling of entrapment? Lack of ability to see an alternative?

Whatever it is, it happens.

I wonder which is worse. Spending Christmas alone or spending Christmas trapped in loveless relationships...

Could the reason that paparazzi are hiding in cars trying to take pictures of royal toddlers have something to do with the woeful lack of 'official' pictures that are issued?

Re: How the mighty has fallen

I wish my bosses had given me a beer or two and a ra-ra session when I used to work. They'd have got more out of me.
