    Why people make such a fuss about prosecco, it isn't all that special.

    Why people (including me) put up with MPs setting their own salaries and the long holiday time they can have off (and I can't :smile:)

    People have kids, spend a fortune on clothing, educating, feeding etc..then when you reach a certain age tv adverts advise you to start saving so that even more of your hard earned cash goes to your kids when you die. Haven't you given them enough already?

    In The Hobbit there was Gandalf the Grey, and I think he mentioned he had a cousin called Radagast the Brown, who was really only interested in animals. In the Lord of the Rings there was Gandalf again, and the chief wizard, Saruman the White, who turned evil through looking too long through one of Sauron's crystal balls. However, the Silmarillion mentions a couple of other wizards. Whatever happened to them?

    Why it is so difficult to buy clothes, it is a chore I despise but I need, not want, some bits and pieces. One shop-clothes are either winter or summer no in between, another had stuff for ladies 70+, 2 others had stuff that would look great on Margot Leadbetter!

    Why do the ads on YouTube never have to buffer?

    Does anyone really think it is special or "make a fuss" of it ? Surely it's just cheaper and inferior substitute for Cava?

    There are birthday cards which mention it, tshirts, Mother's day was 'chocolate and prosecco', it is pushed quite a bit, personally I prefer Cava.

    Why is a grapefruit called a grapefruit? It's a fruit, fair enough. But it's nothing like a grape. The only fruit that resembles a grape is a grape. If anything has a right to be called grapefruit, why not a grape?
