    Thanks Fuskier
    I have been thinking about this for the last few minutes and am a bit stumped how to keep this going. I think many of us here have gone through the mill so to speak and hopefully have learned some lessons along the way, or at least like Makara said learned to love and respect ourselves before all else.

    Having said that we are still to some degree our own worse enemies, we spent time on here and say it is to the detriment of the washing, ironing, cleaning etc. I never here men on the golf course say 'damn all the emails are piling up or the washing isn't being done'. I agree that a large part of the puzzle has to be men taking responsibility for their behaviour, however there also needs to be a part of us that says my work is not limitless, it has boundaries, there is a place and a time for me to do what I enjoy. Maybe that is the respect for ourselves we need to nurture in our daughters.

    Ah damn, too serious, I am doing 'dry' July and it is really starting to have an effect, maybe I need that one glass of single malt just to get me through tonight :floorlaugh:

    Because it would make her feel like she's failed and they're feelings she can't handle for some reason? If she has been in that situation and tolerated then she probably feels responsible in some way. It's easy to deny it because she doesn't know how to undo it. There could be many reasons.

    You make a valid point as we women do tend to emote more guilt than men regarding housework IMO

    Well WOW! Thanks for reposting RATIONAL. I must have missed that one! Bloody brilliant! Couldn't have said it better myself! I have copied & pasted into word, then enlarged and printed this. It says it all. It'll hang for all to see.

    ROFL :floorlaugh: I love geese - they make great watchdogs, erm I mean watchgeese apparently!

    MG is it geese that mate for life and if one dies the surviving goose doesn't take another partner?

    More than we can say for some people :( IMO

    If I can give a piece of advice to anyone, male or female in a relationship, it's this: Trust your gut. If something doesn't feel right and you can't quite put your finger on it, get help! Don't allow your perception to be denied. It might be nothing, but it's better that than the alternative!

    Well said Rational. I've also passed on the "respect yourself and don't lower the bar" to my daughter and she is now passing it onto her daughters. It's fantastic to see the wonderful friends (of both gender) my girls attract into their lives. They're pretty savvy at sorting out the wheat from the chaff.

    Similarly, when my husband was a young police cadet many, many years ago, his Senior Sergeant gave him some great advice that has stuck with him throughout his life.

    Treat everyone how you would like your mother to be treated.

    And hey, if you want that glass of single malt, you have it. :twocents:

    :cheers:

    Sorry everyone, I'm really off topic now.

    Apologies if this has been posted before - Olave sounds like an interesting person and it is a great pity that the work of a great woman has been blighted by the irreverence of her g.grandson IMHO

    http://olavebadenpowell.worldguiding.net/stories/mygran.pdf

    Is it my imagination or has the support on here from the BC camp for GBC abated since his arrest?

    And does anyone know what happens to the caption in Burke's Peerage if you are charged with murder? IMO
    Do they show you the door?

Have advertised to buy for a mate for him but no luck yet. Not many geese around called Pippa Middleton LOL I seriously think I'm going nuts !!:what: Sorry Mods .........another wine please a-hem

    Are you sure his names isn't supposed to be Gerry? :) "Gerry no mates!"

    Sorry MG, forgive my play on words - OT, I know mods -
    I hope Harry finds a mate soon.

    No, why would it be normal? Thank you for what? I am saying the woman friend is thanking EBC. I would think it more normal if EBC was thanking the friend - as under the circumstances they had just lost their daughter-in-law and were going through a trying time. But it is the friend thanking EBC. I was speculating that this woman might have been involved. speculation only of course, but just thought it unusual that the senior BC's would have been doing anything for a friend at that particular time, something that warranted a 'thanks for all your support". After such a tragedy, one would think that their friends would be doing things for them, not the other way around.

    Your statement "I'm confused as to how she may be the former business partner", I dont understand. Why are you confused? I dont know if she is, I am simply speculating. Based on the fact that the former business partner is owed money, plus the sighting of the silver 4 wheel drive and the blue small 4 wheel drive driving close together with lights off/low near Kholo Creek. If the former business partner drives a blue Honda 4 wheel drive, it could mean they were involved. As to the woman in the video, i am posing the question - "Who is this woman - and could she be the former business partner?"

    Just my speculating and questioning - up for discussion. Not sure if there has been further discussion, as I am about 10 pages behind right now.

    Oh! did I get it totally wrong? I did go back and check once before and was sure it was the friend who said it, sheesh, I wonder how I have got it so wrong? Sorry if I've confused anyone.

    I will have to find that link and go back and check it again more carefully.

    I have found a couple of articles which may be of interest in relation to the ability to 'age' bloodstains. The first one is from 2006 and sounded promising, insofar as my ability to interpret scientific data is concerned, and the second attachment pdf is in relation to an instrument developed to read and age the bloodstains to assist forensics. So it seems that the process, if not already available is well on the way.
