"Connor had a mouthful of apple once and he didn't like it. "He refuses to eat fruit, vegetables and salads - he has processed foods. "When Connor won't eat anything else, I've got to give him the foods he likes. "I can't starve him."
Tough, Mrs. McKeown! He's a child and YOU are responsible for him. Believe me, he won't starve, he has enough stored lard to keep him going for months. Don't buy the crap food in the first place, then he won't have an alternative. He either eats it, or goes hungry. Trust me, he will start to eat the good stuff when he realises there won't be anything else. You'll also find your shopping bills go down too, so you can spend the spare money on new clothes for him as he loses weight.
It's not cruel to deprive him of his so-called 'treats' - it's cruel to allow him to continue the way he is.
Mrs. McKeown, YOU are entirely responsible for your son's condition. Take a step back and look at what you've done and take action now before you condemn him to a very early grave.

Lots of people have asked this question and there have been a few suggested answers. One is that they aren't louder at all. Oh yes they bloody well are! Another is that the programmers assume that you're walking off to go and put the kettle on, so they make it louder so that you still hear it. Well get this - when the adverts come on, more often than not, I hit the mute button cos it's too fecking loud and I can't be arsed pissing around changing the volume all the time. Keep the volume at a normal level and I might leave it on.
Oh yeah, and Woody, you're right mate, the Kia Cee'd advert is most definitely the most annoying advert to date. That's another one I turn off now.
Today, I awoke just before 9am. It was bright and sunny and I felt on top of the world. I went for a walk in the woods with my neighbour's dog, spent 2 hours in the garden shaving the bark off a birch staff and chucking the ball for the dog.
Sometimes the simple pleasures make life seem so much better.
- Orange completely ignored my three written complaints about their appalling service;
- they disconnected me several times, whilst denying that there was any problem with the connection at all;
- Smurf rang them to cancel the service and get the migration code to transfer to another provider;
- they gave us the code, apologised profusely and promised us a free month's broadband, and then cut us off a few days later;
- they rang 3 times to ask why the bill hadn't been paid and we told them that we don't owe them anything, in fact I suspect that they owe us £27.99, because we never got that free month's broadband;
- they've been told 3 times that Smurf doesn't live here any more and that the broadband service ceased many months ago and that I am now happily with a reliable and friendly ISP.
Remember folks: Orange Broadband = awful service, even worse customer service, harassment and piss-poor organisation. Do not use Orange Broadband if you value your sanity.

There are lots of theories, including [yawn] fertility/sexual reproduction, and claiming that the church is 'Pagan in feeling'.
Has anyone ever considered this? There might not actually be a meaning! He might just have done it because he liked it. I love some of CRM's work, but I don't have to find a hidden meaning, I just find it pleasing to the eye. Why is there always this search for meaning? It's just nice, so accept it.
