2 useful tips for you today guys - 1 household related and the other eBay related!! :D

Tip 1 - Household - How to open a stiff jar
If you're having grief opening a jar, use a knife to gently wedge open the edge of the lid. This will release a bit of air and make it much easier to open.

Tip 2 - Ebay related - how to leave longer feedback
Use the following link (LINK) to access the feedback forum for eBay Taiwan. The page will be full of squares meaning you can't read it but the layout is exactlly the same as eBay UK. The only difference is you can leave feedback upto 125 characters instead of only 80!! :D

I tested tip no.1 earlier when opening a jar of Chicken Tonight and tip no. 2 a little while ago when I left my feedback so I know they both work!! :D

Don't run over your/your child's favourite teddy bear with a lawn mower.

Smearing jam on your cd's won't make them play any better.

Actually, that could be a really good way of teaching kids to stay away from dangerous things like lawnmover blades!!

Only if you wake up with her standing over you holding a knife.

That's some good advice too, don't let children have sharp knives, or knives in general.
Take my love, take my land, take me where I can not stand. I don't care, I'm still free, You can't take the sky from me.

Take me out to the black, tell them I ain't comin' back. Burn the land and boil the sea, you can't take the sky from me.
