    A good "pony" taking 30 minutes with a decent magazine to read and no interruptions?

    Must be the latter, I don't think you actually need to *read* for the former...

    Just noticed my Yule hat is still there, best go and get it surgically removed...

    What's the best magazine to read?

    My regulars: Singletrackworld, Private Eye, Sunday Times colour supplements, Land Rover Owner. I can keep LRO going for a full two-week business trip if I resort to reading all the ads for spare parts etc.

    Accept things for what they are, and don't set your expectation levels too high. Well that is what i was told anyway:biggrin:

    Disgruntled - BTFB - I like it... Be happy with life and enjoy what you have.

    Mrs B has just made me sit through 'Escape to the Country' :biggrin: :biggrin: xx(

    Ok, if I had loads of dough, I might want to have a nicer house, but would I really want them to make a tv programme about me looking for it?

    Yuk!
     
  14. Forget the house - just settle for a new pair of trainers! :sad:

    Don't believe BTfB - just wave a ripe chav under his nose to get the true 'KERAaaaaang!' :sad:

    I think the secret to happiness (still rather illusive a lot of the time) is the epicurean ideas of good friends, enough to get by and knowing about yourself through an analysed life. I do think a lot of it is true and it is remarkable that someone thought that such a very long time ago.
