Bin weevils review.
Bin weevils is a great website for children age 6+ where you can sign up to get your bin weevil completely free. Membership does cost money but you can do many things without it. You can chat using the chat bubble and Big weevil is always watching to keep things safe.
Bin weevils is fantastic. I think almost every kid in the world should have one. You can sign up and get your own nest for your weevil to sleep in, invite friends to, dance in a tycoon studio and just decorate to hang out. You can also get mulch like this.
You can go to the mall to spend your mulch in the shops but you can also spend it on food or you could save it up. There are many things you can do without member ship, you can do cool things like missions, buy different items, grow things in your garden, buy another room for your nest, play games and earn mulch.
When you become a tycoon you can get a plaza. In a plaza you can buy party rooms to disco and dance in. You can buy items in the tycoon shopping mall on Tycoon Island. You also can get a photo studio.
If you are a member and want to buy more rooms to your plaza then just click on a plaza room that has not yet been bought and it will tell you how much it is (it will usually cost 5000 mulch). If you want to decorate or add music to your Night Club click the title of the room, click buy CDs so you can use your mulch to get some music going.
To decorate you can go to the tycoon island shopping mall and go into the Night Club shop and choose all your weevil-tasctic items but they will only show in your chest when you are in your plaza.
Moving on. When you play games you collect mulch. If you win you get quite a lot but don’t worry if you loose because you get mulch just not as much!
I’ve been saying Tycoon Island a lot but I haven’t told you about it! Well, Tycoon Island is a place for members only. It has a slime pool, a smoothie shack, a cinema and its own shopping mall!!!

You can get millions of stuff in the tycoon mall you can get hats, night club things, back grounds and props for photos, extend your garden and buy things for your home cinema.
You can also earn mulch and xp by…. Going to club fling and standing on some podiums to get xp, going to doshes palace and waiting, going to Gam’s castle and jumping on buttons to fire mulch and going to Labs lab and playing the daily challenge (this is for free weevils as well).
If you feel a bit bored you can become buddies with people and invite them to your nest. By getting xp you can slowly start to get close to levelling up. I am on level 22 but I have played bin weevils for a while.
If you are a member you can make mags about your adventures and other things like this one.
Bin weevils mag
If you want to become a member you can either pay online or buy cards from SAINSBURYS OR TESCOS.
Every chid should have a bin weevils especially if they are into arts and crafts and competitions. As there are many and they can appear at anytime. You can send in art work to impress big weevil and he might put it on display in the Gallery at Flem Manor. New shops and places can appear but then soon they will go so you must act quickly if you see a new place. That is all I can say or I will spoil all the adventures you can have on Bin weevils. Have fun.
Remember to ask your parents before going to any web site and signing up and never give out information about yourself to anybody online.

Well that’s what they say and so far this year it is raining it.
Many of you will know that my grand mother died in January and I hoped that may be the sum total for the year but no.
For reasons that are to varied and many to go into now, I am currently not having much to do with my mother. This is not a choice I would have wanted but there we go, sometimes life does not always work out the way you would like it to be.
To be quite honest this has rather fallen under other, more pressing issues of P being bullied at school. After an incident that concluded with three other children’s parents being called into the school and various punishments being handed out. V and I have been spending most of our energies trying to keep things level at home.
V being a typical mum just wants to bundle P up and take her away but after several chats with P’s teacher’s and a long chat with the
head it seems like it is being sorted. Thankfully though P’s bull headedness and ability to let most things like this go over her head has left her mostly unscathed, in fact her best friend of 4 years moving to Sheffield has caused more sleepless nights.
All the above coupled with some very excessive work hours over the last few weeks has basically left me knackered.
On top of all this my cousins new fiance has just been diagnosed with breast cancer.
Do you know what I’m going to go back to bed and stay there until 2013.

Dear Technical Support,
18 months ago, I upgraded to Girlfriend 1.0 from DrinkingMates 4.2, which I had used for years without any trouble. However, there are apparently conflicts between these two products and the only solution was to try and run Girlfriend 1.0 with the sound turned off.
To make matters worse, Girlfriend 1.0 is incompatible with several other applications, such as LadsNightOut 3.1, Football 4.5, and Playboy 6.9.
Successive versions of GirlFriend proved no better.
I tried a shareware program, Slapper 2.1, but it had many bugs and left a virus in my system, forcing me to shut down completely for several weeks.
Eventually, I tried to run GirlFriend 1.2 and Girlfriend 1.0 at the same time, only to discover that when these two systems detected each other they caused severe damage to my hardware.
I eventually upgraded to FiancÃ©e 1.0, only to discover that this product soon had to be upgraded further to Wife 1.0.
While Wife 1.0 tends to use up all my available resources, it does come bundled with FreeSexPlus and Cleanhouse2004.
Shortly after this upgrade, however, I found that Wife 1.0 could be very unstable and costly to run. Any mistakes I made were automatically stored in Wife 1.0’s memory and could not be deleted. They then resurfaced months later when I had forgotten about them.
Wife 1.0 also has an automatic Diary,Explorer and E-mail filter, and can, without warning, launch TurboStrop and Whinge. These latter products have no Help files, and I have to try to guess what the problem is.
Additional problems are that Wife 1.0 needs updating regularly, requiring ShoeShop Browser for new attachments and Hairstyle Express which needs to be reinstalled every other week. Also, when Wife 1.0 attaches itself to my Saab 93 Convertable hard drive, it often crashes.
Wife 1.0 also comes with an irritating pop-up called MotherInLaw, which can’t be turned off. Recently I’ve been tempted to install Mistress 2003, but there could be problems. A friend of mine has alerted me to the fact that if Wife 1.0 detects Mistress 2003, it tends to delete all of your Money before uninstalling itself.
Help requested please?

Why is it the end of an era? Well perhaps I should start at the beginning.
I have been thinking a lot the last week about a legacy. What it means, what it is and what resonates through time.
For me a legacy is not about what physical mark you make on the world it is about whom you are and the way you affect people through your life. Let me give you an example:
On the 31st November 1919 in a small mining village in Wales a little girl was born to a loving mother (housewife) and father (Miner), she also had a sister and a brother making up the small family. Not an easy life but a decent one.
Forward a few years and the young girl has grown and matured into a young woman in 1930s London working as a PA. A few more years forward and she is now set to be married to a man approved of by her parents and Britain is on the brink of war.
Forward again, Britain is at war, husband to be is off abroad and the woman has fallen deeply in love with another man. A scandal! Thankfully the mans parents are more liberal than most and despite the protestations of her family the woman stays with her love.
Jump forward to the 1950’s, a flat in Wandsworth London, the woman and her husband have a child, a little girl of there own. Life has changed and family ties have been rebuilt. Wife and husband will spend nearly 50 years in this flat, they will see London change around them, people come and go, and life long friends are made. Their child will grow, marry and have a child of her own.
For the next 50 years the woman will be a wife, mother, grandmother and great grand mother. She will have a career spanning 30 years, she will learn and teach the piano, she and her husband will travel to France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Turkey and she will even go by herself to Belfast in the 1990s. She will never learn to drive, She will walk every where, Make her own bread, Sing with her choir, She will loose her brother, her sister and her parents.
Most of all she will live and breathe every moment.
When time starts to take its toll on her husband she will nurse him for 2 years with no complaints until he passes on.
At this point a new chapter will open in her life, while scary she embraces.
Forward to 31st November 2009, the woman is 90. She now lives in a Small Village in Cornwall; she still walks 3 miles every day with her dog. Life is simpler now but no less active.
The woman still sings with a local choir, still goes the theatre with her new friends, and still goes for Sunday lunch at a local pub.
Forward to 31st November 2010.
At 91 she has been told by doctors that due to angina she really needs to stop the daily walk, but on her 91st with her family around her she still walks herself into her Birthday lunch.
Time has taken its toll on her appearance but not her mind.
Forward to 31st November 2011.
At 92 the woman is sharp as a nail as she gives her Great-granddaughter advice on her piano playing, and talks to her Grandson about the entire goings on in the village. She is tired but a fighter.
On the 15th January 2012 her grandson will visit her in a nursing home where she has been for 3 days. They chat for an hour about all that is going on in life until she says she is tired and he leaves her to rest.
In the early hours of Tuesday 17th January 2012 Iris finally succumbed to the tiredness that had been nagging her for the last two months and rest for ever more.
Iris was my Grandmother.
I and the generations that follow me through history are her legacy.
Rest easy now we will take it from here……
