    You have to be careful about metallic salts when using henna. Since I had never used metallic salts, this was not an issue for me. I have not developed an allergy to henna, even though I do have quite a few other plant allergies.

    I am so very tired and brain foggy right now, and I have almost three more hours of work to go... this is not going to be easy.

    Haha I am supposed to read the first 200 or so pages of Dracula by tomorrow, and the rest by Wednesday... luckily I just finished it because I had been reading it over the summer, so I don't have to worry much about it.

    My head is all bleary and I just want to crawl back to sleep... Monday. It's got to be a Monday.

    ION, if someone fixes up a rather bitter irish coffee and then you dip chocolate in it and think that slicing a banana inside might work for sugar - it won't. Rather obvious, but still *shrugs*. Cooking experiments.
    (I've actually tried the brew out of sheer "what in the Nine Hells are you making?" reaction... )

    Bah, humbug! Young people today have no respect! When I were a lad we had to walk to school, in the snow, up-hill...both ways! You could go to the cinema for 5p and still have change for a bag of chips on the (up-hill) walk home! Kids these days have it too easy, they got no manners! I was working in the mills when I was 14. A web was something made by spiders! Being upwardly mobile meant you were a chimney sweep! Etc etc etc

    For Silvery (and anyone else feeling old):

    FIRST YORKSHIREMAN: Aye, very passable, that, very passable bit of risotto.
    SECOND YORKSHIREMAN: Nothing like a good glass of Château de Chasselas, eh, Josiah?
    THIRD YORKSHIREMAN: You're right there, Obadiah.
    FOURTH YORKSHIREMAN: Who'd have thought thirty year ago we'd all be sittin' here drinking Château de Chasselas, eh?
    FIRST YORKSHIREMAN: In them days we was glad to have the price of a cup o' tea.
    SECOND YORKSHIREMAN: A cup o' cold tea.
    FOURTH YORKSHIREMAN: Without milk or sugar.
    THIRD YORKSHIREMAN: Or tea.
    FIRST YORKSHIREMAN: In a cracked cup, an' all.
    FOURTH YORKSHIREMAN: Oh, we never had a cup. We used to have to drink out of a rolled up newspaper.
    SECOND YORKSHIREMAN: The best we could manage was to suck on a piece of damp cloth.
    THIRD YORKSHIREMAN: But you know, we were happy in those days, though we were poor.
    FIRST YORKSHIREMAN: Because we were poor. My old Dad used to say to me, "Money doesn't buy you happiness, son".
    FOURTH YORKSHIREMAN: Aye, 'e was right.
    FIRST YORKSHIREMAN: Aye, 'e was.
    FOURTH YORKSHIREMAN: I was happier then and I had nothin'. We used to live in this tiny old house with great big holes in the roof.
    SECOND YORKSHIREMAN: House! You were lucky to live in a house! We used to live in one room, all twenty-six of us, no furniture, 'alf the floor was missing, and we were all 'uddled together in one corner for fear of falling.
    THIRD YORKSHIREMAN: Eh, you were lucky to have a room! We used to have to live in t' corridor!
    FIRST YORKSHIREMAN: Oh, we used to dream of livin' in a corridor! Would ha' been a palace to us. We used to live in an old water tank on a rubbish tip. We got woke up every morning by having a load of rotting fish dumped all over us! House? Huh.
    FOURTH YORKSHIREMAN: Well, when I say 'house' it was only a hole in the ground covered by a sheet of tarpaulin, but it was a house to us.
    SECOND YORKSHIREMAN: We were evicted from our 'ole in the ground; we 'ad to go and live in a lake.
    THIRD YORKSHIREMAN: You were lucky to have a lake! There were a hundred and fifty of us living in t' shoebox in t' middle o' road.
    FIRST YORKSHIREMAN: Cardboard box?
    THIRD YORKSHIREMAN: Aye.
    FIRST YORKSHIREMAN: You were lucky. We lived for three months in a paper bag in a septic tank. We used to have to get up at six in the morning, clean the paper bag, eat a crust of stale bread, go to work down t' mill, fourteen hours a day, week-in week-out, for sixpence a week, and when we got home our Dad would thrash us to sleep wi' his belt.
    SECOND YORKSHIREMAN: Luxury. We used to have to get out of the lake at six o'clock in the morning, clean the lake, eat a handful of 'ot gravel, work twenty hour day at mill for tuppence a month, come home, and Dad would thrash us to sleep with a broken bottle, if we were lucky!
    THIRD YORKSHIREMAN: Well, of course, we had it tough. We used to 'ave to get up out of shoebox at twelve o'clock at night and lick road clean wit' tongue. We had two bits of cold gravel, worked twenty-four hours a day at mill for sixpence every four years, and when we got home our Dad would slice us in two wit' bread knife.
    FOURTH YORKSHIREMAN: Right. I had to get up in the morning at ten o'clock at night half an hour before I went to bed, drink a cup of sulphuric acid, work twenty-nine hours a day down mill, and pay mill owner for permission to come to work, and when we got home, our Dad and our mother would kill us and dance about on our graves singing Hallelujah.
    FIRST YORKSHIREMAN: And you try and tell the young people of today that ..... they won't believe you.
    ALL: They won't!

    We got the 23 month old to use the "Potty" this weekend. It only took her about 3 minutes to "Poop"! We were so happy, we clapped and told her she is a big girl. My wife had a wrapped up coloring book as a present for her. She smiled, stood up, turned around and saw the poop in the potty. She FREAKED OUT! 30 minute cry fest. She won't even go near the bathroom now....:sosad: This is going to be fun!:rolleyes:

    Awww bless her! We haven't done much potty training with Ash. Just getting him used to sitting on it fully clothed is enough at the minute. Mind you, he does tell us when he's filled his nappy. Good luck Blades! Have you tried getting a favourite teddy bear or something to 'go potty'?
