  • Can they add white ink to coloured ink (before it is tattooed on) to make a paler shade?

    Sorry if this is a bit of a daft question! Can they mix white ink into blue ink (for example), to make it a really pale blue or would adding white affect the longevity of the colour (as I have heard white ink can turn yellow-ish?)

  • What's the best book you have read in 2008 so far?

    I've just started reading the Cross Stitch (Outlander in the US) series by Diana Gabaldon again, I read them when I was about 15 but appreciate the story and characters so much more now. I'm totally hooked again!

  • Have any of you got a Zen Stone MP3 Player?

    How are you getting on with it, is it worth buying one? I only want something small, and I do not want an ipod.

  • How does yellow ink look and last on pale skin?

    I'm looking at sunflower images for a tattoo I am planning later in the year, having only black tattoos on me at the moment I am unsure of how the colour would look and last on my skin, I am really fair. Any advice? I am not interested in the opinions of people who disapprove of tattoos, thank you!

  • Are there any pescatarians here?

    I am seriously considering stopping eating meat because I just don't even enjoy it anymore, and I don't see any point in eating something I don't like just for the sake of it! Why did you stop eating meat, and how hard did you find it with pressure from family? My husband is a chef and I know he will find it strange, any tips or advice?

  • How can I escape the "ready meal" trap?

    My husband is a chef and works late nights, I can rarely think of things to cook for myself and have fallen in to the trap of living on ready meals, I cannot remember the last time I cooked a proper meal for myself, cooking for one is much harder than it sounds!

He thinks his family will be upset/offended if we do not spend Christmas with them (they don't make a big deal out of it, just dinner and gifts and carols as background music) and he won't consider doing something different, am I wrong to ask again that we spend it with my family?

    We've inherited some ugly laminate wardrobes, my mum said I could paint them but that I'd need a primer or some sort of base coat that will allow paint to dry on the laminate, does anyone know what I need to get?

  • What items would you want on a "sharing platter"?

    I'm making a sharing platter for me and my hubby tonight, we have no dietary restrictions so all suggestions are welcome! So far I have got mini ribs in sweet chili sauce and potato wedges, and now I am all out of ideas! I don't have a deep fat fryer, so I am looking for things that can be oven cooked or shallow fried, or grilled.
