    When it comes to selecting a product for your own use, or a range for your business, how much are you influenced by the packaging? I think, perhaps, more than you realise. What are your thoughts?

    Cheap or Chic?

    Do you have any friends who always look fabulous, and when you admire what they're wearing they say, "Oh, it was £10 in the sale"? I, on the other hand, can make even semi-expensive things look cheap! And cheap clothes look like dish-rags. Sigh.

    What does loyalty to a brand mean to you?

    For me, it means having faith and trust in the brand I use on a professional basis, but also keeping an eye on what's out there and trying new products on myself. What do you think?

    Are voluntary contributions vital for our society to thrive?

    I wonder whether we could still exist without financial contributions to charities, or volunteer workers? I remember being so shocked when I learned that hospices rely on charity to survive. How can that be acceptable, when so much money is wasted on non-essential projects? Medical research...

Mum did really well, but found it all a...

    Why SG is a lovely place to be

    Yes, the professional forums are invaluable sources of help from skilled and experienced professionals. Can I especially dedicate this thread however, as it's in Chit-chat, to the lovely souls I've "met" on here? Warm, kind, wise individuals who I feel have become real friends.

    When is it wrong to keep quiet? Debate.

    I've been reading a thread on bullying, and it made me think about a wider issue. Let's take the example of a sexual assault. Does the victim have a moral obligation to report it,and protect other potential victims, or does he/she have the right to choose to keep it quiet and carry on with...

    Of course I don't watch Benidorm!

    Well actually I do.....and it gets worse. My "favourite" characters are Donald and Jackie; they are so wonderfully crass and bizarre. I cringe and laugh at the same time! Is anybody else in the confessional mood?
