    Silly Question

    My sister has an allergy to any type of nuts. Just standing next to someone who had them for lunch is enough to start her allergy. Her throat closes and face puffs up....not nice. I wouldn't use Solar products near your client again.

    Email Scams Revenge!

    I could sit and read about these idiots all day! Serves them right! You'd think that they would at least research their scam material first so that they gave the impression of actually having been around horses. Fancy falling for the garden wolf story too!

    Ok, she called BABTAC and they have said that it is a good course and that she will be able to get insurance through BSY and that she will be fully covered. (She HAS to do the practical day though) I'm still not convinced, but I think she is!!!

    Has anyone heard of .....?

    Thanks guys. You are confirming my thoughts. I am really concerned that although she has plenty of friends to practice on how does she know she has the right technique etc. She needs to do it like this as she has three kids (all of which are below school age) and wants to get into the industry...
