The heroin will cause you to become addicted to taking the vitamins.Thus,you'll never forget to take your vitamins daily! The consumer is always on our minds at Douchebagsanto. Quite.

If you fancy a real challenge, carry the gift of empathy to someone difficult. Sometimes it works, sometimes it appears not to, then years later you discover it did :)

The best lesson for children to learn from their education, is the habit of deciding to find out for themselves.

grow your own understanding

Everyone has habits, often unconsciously copied from parents and peers. It makes sense to choose the best.

inequality in state education UK

“My parents had a strong sense that the educational system hadn’t been fair to them and they had missed out. I learned as a small child I had to work at least twice as hard as the middle class children to achieve the same result. When I did show ambition – to go to LSE [the London School of Economics and Political Science] to be a political researcher – I was told it wasn’t appropriate.”

How much has changed? “This government is making inequality in education worse, not better,” she says.

Reay carried out more than 500 interviews and identified most with the children who were difficult and out of place: the “fighters”, she calls them. “That was the sort of child I was in school.”

Children's education - inequality comes to Asia:

"With limited educational and economic prospects, talented youth from disadvantaged backgrounds end up running in place. As inequality becomes increasingly entrenched, it can erode the consensus in favour of pro-growth economic policies, undermine social cohesion, and spur political instability."

Children's charities and local councils call on ministers to urgently invest in children's services or leave authorities 'firefighting' and families burdened with long term consequences.

If you are cooking a green vegetable to go with your pasty, I'd recommend buying frozen (from fresh) broccoli. Freshly picked broccoli seems to be sold with miles of bare stalk, which is a bad buy. Broccoli is miles ahead of cabbage (which is nevertheless very healthy food) for vitamins. the comparison is available here: vitamins and minerals in broccoli and cabbage

Give your cash directly and unconditionally to homeless people.

Don’t just buy them a sandwich from Pret. They’re not four. They have the right to spend their money as they choose – and it is their money, once given. Don’t just give to people performing, singing, or accompanied by a cute dog. Buskers deserve a wage too, of course. But homeless people are not your dancing monkey and they shouldn’t have to perform to earn your pity.

A huge collection of garden building projects using natural materials.

Raised beds using willow appeal to me. Willow grows very well in most of Cornwall; most of England, in fact - anywhere wet and mild.
