    I want to get a stain off one of my pillowcases, so I thought i'd give it a long soak in some fabric stain remover. But when I looked at the instructions for soaking, it says "Do not soak fabrics with finished surfaces". I'm wondering what they mean by "Finished Surfaces", my pillowcase is half plain white but the other half has a raised silver leaf pattern on the other half. So is the fancy raised silver leaf pattern on the pillowcase a "finished surface"? I'd better not soak it until i find out.

Or are they elsewhere?

    Sometimes I think Big Brother is almost highlighting and advertising racism by making such a big fuss out of a slip of the tongue. should Ron's comment and then the subsequent warning be aired on TV?. Same with Carol, she's said the N word,when a bit drunk and then they had to air it on TV with the accompanying hoo-haa and trumpets. If BB can see that a housemate isn't really racist, then get him/her in the diary room and give them a little warning, say something like "Look, we know you're a bit drunk or weren't thinking whilst you were speaking, but don't say that again or you could get kicked out". All that could be said privately and not aired on TV, hence the ugly head of Racism and bigotry hasn't been promoted, advertised, and waved in the face of the british public. If they can see a housemate is a complete 100% racist, shouting "I hate this race", "I hate this colour"," I hate this religion" etc all the time, then fair enough, put his comments on TV and let him/her hang out to dry. I think there's an easy dividing line on this kind of thing, (slip of the tongue= don't air it cos we don't need to advertise racism) and (Vile racism=boot em out) easy.

But it's just struck me i don't know how these sizzler plates are used. Is a steak cooked in the oven on the sizzler plate, or is the steak cooked in a conventional way then transferred onto the sizzler plate to keep it warm? So simply, is the sizzler used as part of the cooking process or is it merely used to keep stuff warm?

If it wasn't for Josie, that would have carried on until Corin had been backed into a corner and eventually left. I tell you what though, Josie sticking up for Corin, i am wondering if Josie is doing all that because she knows it looks good on camera. She knows she's in the final. She knows there's £100,000 just there for the taking, because she's been made aware often enough how popular she is on the outside. She knows all she's got to do is stay popular by sticking up for the good causes and the money is virtually hers. Hell...i'd argue with John James, morning,noon and night, 7 days a week if i thought it would get me the dirty cash. But whether she's done all that with one eye on the cash or not, it's still been great viewing watching her verbally defeat the guys, and then put John James on a leash.

As Christians, don't you find that it is a big blow to your faith in Jesus that the Jews, the very people Jesus represents, the central peoples in the Bible, gods chosen people, they don't believe that Jesus was the Messiah. It's the equivalent of being a devout Buddhist and the people of India saying they don't believe in Siddartha and all his teachings. I'm not asking from some atheistic, anti-religion viewpoint, i'm not attempting to be facetious. I am genuinely curious why all this doesn't shake your faith in Jesus as the messiah.
