When coming up with something to write for my 250th review I was stumped, even with the help of some brilliant friends on the site, I still had no idea what to write. I even started to write a review for the Product of the Month and call this my 250th review, as this is the best summer I’ve ever...

CIAO PET HATES "Writing is a form of therapy; sometimes I wonder how all those who do not write, compose or paint can manage to escape the madness, melancholia, the panic and fear which is inherent in a human situation." - Graham Greene I was mildly surprised to find that Friday 12th March will...

ConsFar too many to mention

Er, I started on Ciao 2678 days ago on a Wednesday - Since then I’ve posted up 1.05 reviews a week. I was urged into writing for the online consumer while in ‘The Quad Bar’ by a skeletal Audrey Hepburn look-a-like; Miss Lendenbloom was her name (not a pseudo one), she did daily chores at...

Tis An Art To A Good To A Good Ciao !!!! My Ciao habits have changed a lot over the last few years and I guess it's all to do with learning from mistakes I have made. Sometimes I guess all of us make the mistake of not remembering that that name with a coloured dot that you read and leave a...

“Ciao changed my life !!!”

published 03/05/2007

ProYou get an insight into my Ciaoing

ConsIt might be a little self indulgent

A pretty bold statement I hear you say and I might even catch a slight chortle on the wind as you think what a Pratt. How can a website change your life? Well for me it is actually true. Let me see if I can explain and where better to do that than at the beginning so join me on a trip down memory...

Being a member on Ciao for years now, I've decided to review me! Way back in January 1968 I was delivered into my mums arms by a nun, a midwife of the St. Francis hospital in Govan, Glasgow. My mum wasn't a resident of Glasgow but lived in a large town 20 miles outside. I was the 13th child...

My very lovely CoT-friend Sri, known in Ciaoland as skmm, has recently created a challenge about Ciao - how clever of him to pick something on which we ALL have opinions. Take a look at his original where you can find a list of the questions if you want to pick up the baton and run with it. I've...

ConsI can't always think of things to write about
