What do men benefit from a long distance relationship?

Filed in The Category Relationships

My ex boyfriend- ( were in a long distance relationship) wants to work things out. In time I may have the opporunity to move to london where he resides..after my last semester of grad school.

This weekend he informed me that he misses me and wants to work things out. We have been broken up for about 2 months. I informed him that I started dating someone. This guy is very nice but to be honest Im not 100 percent over my ex…but right now I dont know where my ex is coming from, He was upset that I was dating someone else… but the reason we broke up because the fact he didnt know if he wanted to spend the holidays with him. Which hurt me greatly.

Now the holidays are over…he wants to do long distance again..it doesnt make since.

I ponder myself if there was someone else…but he and his sister ensure me there wasnt.

What to do?

First, the dress form. For years, I made every stitch of visible clothing I put on my body, and I never used a dress form. I had a sloper cut to my exact measurement and used it for altering patterns. Many people do swear by dress forms, though, and they are handy in pinning up hems. What many people are doing these days is making their own dress forms from duct tape.

Here are links to a few web sites with instructions for the duct-tape dress form:





Now, about fabric choices. Usually, the printed pattern you choose will have fabric suggestions on the envelope the pattern comes in. Summer fabrics are a good place to start, because they are lightweight and a bit more forgiving than the heavier winter fabrics. I prefer to wash and dry cotton and cotton blend fabrics before laying them out. Again, the pattern should carry suggested layouts of the pattern on the fabric. As you gain experience, you may be able to lay out the fabric and pattern pieces without using the prepared layout–but when you’re learning, you will learn more by following the suggested layout.

Particularly, pay attention to the grain lines. Usually, fabrics are folded with the two sides (selvages) meeting so that the threads in the warp and weft form right angles. Usually, up and down on the finished garment coincide with up and down on the fabric. Some fabrics are the same in either direction, but many are not. You may have to look hard to determine that there’s an up and a down in a length of uncut fabric, but it will instantly be noticeable once the garment is finished. Fabrics with a definite up and down include napped fabrics, some plaid fabrics, some printed fabrics, and some embroidered fabrics. So take your time, determine the up and down, and use the suggested fabric layout.

There are many web sites that offer help for you while you are learning. They include:

where is health and safety policy kept at a care home?

Filed in The Category Home Safety

Answer by Mr_R_Swipe
Normally it is kept in a folder in the bottom drawer of a locked filing cabinet, located in a cellar, covered in dust.

In better work places, it is in the office. If you are working in a care home, it is a legal requirement for your employer to go through the policy with you, as a part of your induction.

Answer by itsamini1
They usually give you a copy when you first sign in. Many states require it be posted in a public area. If you need a copy you can ask the office they should give you one.

Answer by obzi
Why not hang around with very small people?

Answer by IC
My cousin was always the shortest in his class, today he’s 6’3 and looks down on his old classmates.

Eat healthy foods, take care of your body and be proud of yourself.

Answer by bmac
Learning to spell would be a BIG help. It’s SMALLER, not samler or samll.

There is nothing that is going to make you taller. No drugs, no vitamins, no supplements, no exercises. Nothing. It’s genetic. There is no way to know till you are about 21 and no way to get there any faster.

Answer by Clayton
you can slap him in the face if its warm the redness should fade and mainly kick him in the balls or ass and leave no snitches as witnesses lol
even if she looks to search for bruises you can spread it and he will be dead embarrassed maybe even hated

Answer by DarknessMatters
DUDE! good job “The prob is I will win cos I don’t give up”
if you don’t want to leave a mark on your opponent . .then i would suggest you to learn jujitsu /grapple move. .its best to pin down your opponent and make sure that you’re fighting against a sole person because its useless to fight using jujitsu in numbers

If Obama & the democratic majority cannot revive the economy, should we try a pagan witch doctor next?

Filed in The Category Superstitions

A republican administration and majority could not revive the economy, a democratic administration and majority cannot revive the economy. Isn’t it time to just accept our economy for what it really is then elect a pagan witch doctor to revive the economy with incantation and prayer, maybe sprinkle on a few human sacrifices? Wouldn’t that be a higher probability strategy?
