    I’ve always ate leftovers cold the next day.

    However I seem to have been lucky going by the replies so far.

    I always order extra rice to chill and make egg fried rice.

    Any links work reviewing

    Everyone expects inner city councils to be full of socialist lunatics, Sheffield council is just parodying itself, and has demonstrated it is more absurd than most. In fact Sheffield council has form, in the eighties it declared Sheffield The People’s Republic of South Yorkshire, a name used by their opponents as well as supporters…

    I talk to anybody, anywhere. I used to hitch hike a lot and my job is in export sales so I’m happy to chat with anybody and have had some fascinating conversations over the years. Recently I had an interesting chat on a plane with a young Rabbi who was on his way to kosher certify some food factories in Europe; unusual because orthodox Jews usually keep themselves to themselves.

    The P45 will be a clue. But I was an HR/Employment law advisor. I certainly never ever looked at someone’s P45 it always ended up with payroll. So I’d breath a little bit easy on that. It would need to be a chance encounter between someone from the management team, discussing the vastly inflated salary they had to offer you, with someone from the payroll team, who just happens to remember that the figures from your P45 don’t quite reflect the amount on the reference they’ve not seen as these are normally kept by HR.

    Will the reference reflect your salary? Tombstone references are almost the norm these days. Name, Employer, position start date & end date. An employer is free to disclose salary if asked – they normally wouldn’t bother if they were’nt asked, but there’s new & stricter Data Protection legislation coming out in May which many organisations are preparing for and I’d guess many employers have already got cautious about disclosing information like that now without the permission of the data subject (you!).

    Just Relax and keep your fingers crossed – good luck.

    I use android and windows at work and OSX at home, both have their benefits. But with using a personal iPhone, I prefer to use the Mac at home.

    Will be a long standing rivalry, but I’m happy to sit bang in the middle haha.

    His IQ is rapidly falling. Never mind the recent call for a proper medical by concerned psychiatrists, his strikingly reduced ability to form complex, grammatically correct sentences containing more complicated words than “bigly” has been noted before. Unfortunately, such speech problems often reflect an underlying degenerative condition, especially when they get worse over time.

    There are quite a few links on the web that contrast interviews from the 1990s and 2010s, and quantitative analyses of his speech patterns over time clearly prove that point. This becomes especially clear when contrasted with the same analysis for Reagan (who was similarly suspected to suffer from dementia while in office, which was subsequently confirmed) but not Bush senior or another president I cannot recall (Carter?).

    @mel I joined pof, Jaumo and most recently Tinder because a friend recommended it.

    Have to admit I don’t really like tinder but it’s handy for getting back in touch with old friends I’d forgotten about.

    Pof, is crazy. Some of the messages and ‘job’ offers are jawdropping but made a few friends and also ended up with a ‘good’ job offer. Some gorgeous men on there too.

    Jaumo, now that’s where the real man candy is (yes, I’m superficial, I like pretty men haha). Sometimes the men are just as bad as on the other sites but it’s were I met the guy I’m seeing now. Also made some friends on there too, some from all over the world.

    All in all I’ve quite enjoyed my online dating experience.

    Online dating is hilarious! Yes you get some very weird, crazy and sometimes downright freaky messages etc but that’s just one aspect.

    I’ve made quite a few new friends and actually now met someone. There is no way I would have met him in real life so that is certainly one of the perks of online dating.

    Personally I don’t regard the likelihood of success of a relationship instigated online to be any different than meeting someone in ‘real life’.

    Plus, it’s great for eye candy, some of those creatures are just delicious
