    Re: Latest hair style - short back and sides

    I'm fairly lucky. I have taken after my mother and although I have receded a little bit in the front, it's not too bad.

    Re: Fire Engine or Fire Truck?

    I quite agree. Why do we need to copy the Yanks? We have our own languague and colloquialisms. Unfortunately the uneducated among us don't know any better and copy the Yanks.:groan:
