A very interesting and informative post. by Kukana
One of the great assets of Ciao is that it gives us the opportunity to get to read articles - it isn't a review in any conventional sense - like this. A subject which at some stage most of us are going to be forced into considering, but wouldn't tend to think about or educate ourselves until that time comes. Very thought provoking - all the more so for reading some of the comments below from people who have first hand experience. R. by RICHADA

Very practical; I must admit, when I went to stay with relatives last year, I did end up going into the kitchen after every meal just to help with the dishwasher etc. (It's a hard balance to find, between relaxing because your on holiday and looking like you expect to be waited on . . .) by KateHurst

I think that is a little picky myself. Things can be really good for one person, and then have some fault for another person. I just reviewed a face product that had 5* rating from two other members I trusted, but on my skin it was 3*. by cha97michelle
i am just being super picky then? Thanks for your comments, I'll take them on board. I'm guessing the other site you mention is for people that like to complain? I know I came across that way and never meant to but I just never find anything is perfect by MissBookay

Interesting read and I'm sorry to hear about what happened to your partner - absolutely awful :( by CosmicLove
Thank You very much thedevilinme. I agree about Jim Davidson, how is he supposed to get that mud not to stick, being arrested under operation YewTree?! People still judge, even when it's obvious it's lies and things have been dropped, it's these poor men that deserve compensation. Did you know that when a woman reports a rape to the police, she can apply for compensation from the government and the average payout is £10k? And it doesn't matter if the police have taken no further action due to lack of evidence, or if the defendant is found not guilty, they get to keep it, and they get paid it before any trial takes place if the apply for it straight away. It's dreadful. by Lusijay
