  1. Sri Lanka's killing fields

    Did anyone watch this last night on C4. Usually when a programme states it contains disturbing images it just a disclaimer that people ignore. But my god that was horrific I had to look away at a lot of it. Awful awful crimes commited by both sides.

  3. Learning a new language

    For a while i've fancied learning a new language, dunno what yet, probably Italian, German or Spanish as that's the places I visit most.

  5. Houses - Anyone bought then sold these days?

    My house is just going on the market but I've seen this cracking place that is well below budget and has the advantage of being fully specced up inside potentially saving me tens of thousands of quid. They have some other interest and I really don't want to let it go. Anyone done this in the...
