    Hubby! If that's not acceptable, then a very old pair of ice tongs.....I use them for just about everything from dishing up beefburgers and sausages to removing slices of hot toast from the toaster!

    It has to be my laptop. Its opened up a whole new world for me.And it keeps my son interested in the workings and history of loads of objects.
    I can watch all these gymnastic comps that I used to store on videos and that have gradually deteriorated. i can look at the online shops without the hassle of parking and struggling through crowds. Has their ever been a better gadget?

    Now this is a difficult one robertis, but I think I dimly recall you saying something about dealing with the anal fall-out from five dogs, so would it be a poo-picker-upper type thing? DD

    Hi robertis, it has just dawned on me that frog never heard if her design was the winner - she took my suggestion and developed it beautifully. Does she get the mivvi? Or do I for thinking of it first? I am currently full of desire for an ice cream, want something cold and tasty and have run out. Please help! DD

    I have had OA since mid twenties. It affects my hips and knees. I had a THR on the left aged 30 and now have a resurface-replacement on the right - done May 2010.
