I am an athiest and believe religion is brainwash. But was slightly interesting anyway.

but didnt u say that ur dad smoked inside the house??????

was it only places places of business that took the smoking outside? Bet the parents didn`t.... Some parent would have had the attitude of "it`s my house i will do what i want"   

i agree that smoking should be an outside thing, but it wasn`t spoken about back then as to what it is today. i  appologise for telling you to get over it.

sorry phanatic but no i am not a feminist.

i dont think that statistic`s are always correct.

and i think it was your one sided opinion that ticked me off

i just asked my daughter what an Emo kid is and she said it`s a kid who is severly depressed and often thinks of slitting their wrists.......
don`t think there is anything to applaud there, do u?

Was that artical written by a dope smoker??? if it was written by a tobacco smoker it would have been the total opposite.
they blame each other...
my parents smoked inside when i was a kid but i don`t hold it against them......GET OVER IT!

Reading some of your opinions made my stomache ache.

 Are any of you parents??

have any of you been through this stuff with children??

First of all niether of my kids were breast fed, and believe it or not they ARE smart!!!

Second of all my youngest was in daycare for 3 years and she flourished and it prepared her for school. WE AS parents want was is best for our kids and we make decisions on what we think is best.

And wouldn`t it be great if we could all live with mum and dad... sorry but sometimes it`s not possible. I don`t think it`s fair to catagorise breast fed to bottle fed, one parent to two parents as to how smart or better off a child is.

And what bugs me the most is people with strong opinions on something they have no experience in dealing with.... and if you haven`t guessed YES i am a single mum.

I was breast fed and i wouldn`t consider my self any smarter than a bottle fed baby.

Thanks for the trivia seeker. I`ll pass it on to my mum who currently and for as long as i can remember has drank atleast 10 cups a day.
And she has Angina (heart condition), 2 smokes for every cup and 1 inbetween. Her future looks bleak indeed.... :(

General Discussion / Vitamin Suppliments
« on: February 21, 2008, 12:46:19 AM »
Hi all...   I am studying to complete a Certificate 3 in aged care and my teacher was talking about vitamins and what is good to take. Apparently we should take vitamins that we don`t get in our everyday diet.

He recommended Fish oil - good for the Cardivascular system, circulatory system, cholesterol, heart, brain, memory and joint movement.
                            Vitamin E - boost immunity, cold sores, energy, cramps, pms and healing skin lesions
                            Cranberry - urinary tract health and acidophilus.
                            Horseradish, garlic and Vitamin C is good for stress, anxiety, allergies and flu

Currently I am taking the fish oil and i am also on Calcium and Magnesium tablets. My diet is pretty poor, I dont have breakfast, sometimes i don`t have lunch. I drink tea (4 cups a day) have 3 serves of vege`s per week, rarely eat red meat and don`t often snack on the right foods.

So my Question to you is; do you take any Vitamins? if so what for? and your general opinion on the topic?

I don`t read my star sign often but i have had a couple of readings done. First it was curiosity, to see if anything would come true. I have had 2 readings done in 10 years and things that the first reader said came up in my second reading which was done by a different person. It was about people (spirits) around me. i dont believe people are stupid for what they believe in. I personally don`t believe in god, i do believe in spirits through my own freaky encounters. I dont pray to god, i speak to my grandfather. I believe he is my guardian angel.

I was sent this website and thought it was fascinating

Maybe you could get a kick out of it too.

I dont live by my readings, i dont base my decisions on them but as I am a curious bugger I like to have some sort of insight to what the future holds. And if it happens it happens if it don`t well so what....

« on: August 23, 2007, 12:23:23 AM »
I agree it is love and look at all the benefits that come with being loved. Being alone can be somewhat depressing. The one thing I miss most is having a partner coming home to me and sitting down together for a chat and a cuppa... :D

The Voting Booth / Re: Needs of others...
« on: August 21, 2007, 09:31:51 PM »
I think it`s good to help others to a certain degree. The more you do for a person the more they expect and the more you get used.
I think people need to be helping themselves before they can seek help from others. I am all for helping people in need but at times you need to say "no".

I was like Maddison and would most certainly go out of my way to help anybody, but as it turned out even my own family started to use me. A friend pointed out to me that i say yes too often and I quickly changed my ways. I had self esteem issues and would never stand up for myself, needless to say I was picked on alot by family and peers. I would give them what they wanted in order to be left alone. When I changed my ways I gained alot of respect off these people.... 

Advice Column / Re: How do you prevent or deal with stress?
« on: August 19, 2007, 11:37:19 PM »
Overall I am a pretty calm person and rarely get stressed. But when it happens I usually pull away from the world and have a sob. This way I`m not taking it out on anyone. Then I think intensely about the situation and what can be done to resolve or help the reason I am stressed in the first place. When stressed I like to tell myself that there is someone out there that is worse off than me. Then ring up a friend, get together for a coffee and by then end I am always laughing. I have kids and we all know they can stress us out. I do raise my voice when they push my buttons but I like to talk to them later when we have all calmed down.

To prevent stress; BE honest!!! I am honest and up front 99% of the time. I think lying can not only hurt others but can make situations worse than they have to be. Not to mention keeping your story straight and constantly thinking about wether or not this lie can come back to bite you later on...
I dont stress about the little things in life, they are not worth it... ;)

Hey thanks guys...First of all you are right Matt, my tummy is the last place to firm up. I walk for an hour every day and I can definately feel other areas tightning. I shall start my 15 minute workout tomorrow and keep you posted.

Foxy - to clarify myself, I am not looking to get ripped but to firm up an area that copped a good stretching during my last pregnancy ;D I just thought I would ask seeing as I`m new to all this exercising. Oh and thanks for the have a good sense of humour :D

I was wandering what type of exercises I can do at home for my tummy? I have an exercise ball that I thought of blowing the dust off and pumping it up again... I used to be able to do 150 sit ups in one sitting. What else can I do to tighten things up?...any insight would be great. :)

Hello fellow cave people, I`m Renee and new to this whole fitness thing.... First of all I think your website is awesome and it has made me look at my life and fitness level in a whole new light.

Recently i gave up smoking, it`s been 9 days and truely it was not that hard. When i gave up smoking i set myself a goal to walk to my mums house which is about 5 km by car. Today i have reached that goal!!!!!! I rode my bike there and i even made it home.... this was a joke in my family that i would not make it back.. so I gave myself a pat on the back and thought I would share my excitement.

In a way this site has turned my life around, thank you!

Well i have been at both ends, naturally a thin person but i put on 30kg`s when i was pregnant with my youngest daughter which took me up to 96kg`s. Personally i prefer to be on the thinner side. But as long as you are happy with the way you are it shouldn`t matter what other poeple think.
But i do agree with these skinny girls who show a bit too much skin, please girls leave something to the imagination. Consertative is very sexy! Besides wearing skimpy clothing can attract the wrong type of attention....
