FQ1: Share a health or beauty tip!
Drink a litre of orange juice per day. And stay out of the sun.

FQ2: Share a computer or electronic gadget tip!
Always check the first three laws of tech support.

FQ3: Share a travel or transportation tip!
Declare everything. Even if it's just chocolate or sweets. Often you can get through customs quicker than the standard lines. That of course is twenty year old advice. Four years ago it made absolutely no difference. Last year I'm sure it took longer. Dave would be able to say if there's any difference.

FQ TIPSTER: Got a tip for a classic or vintage CD, movie, TV show, or book we might have overlooked?
Star Blazers. I used to watch it when I was a kid and haven't seen it since. Toying with the idea of finding it on dvd. That and Astroboy :)

FQ1: What's a new food or drink you've tried? How'd it go?
Dunno what they were, but they were these scrumptious dips at the farewell today. Apparently they were some sort of cashew dip, but can't remember what else they had in them
FQ2: What's a new television show or movie you've seen or book you've read? How'd it go?
Newest movie I've seen was Finding Neverland, a very sweet story, if not entirely accurate
FQ3: What's a new place you've been to or web site you've visited? How'd it go?
I started reading Neil's World, because everybody else does
FQ NEW: Do the new! What's something new you've been wanting to try but haven't? What's stopping you?
Scuba diving. Lack of people to go with.

F1 F1 F1

FQ1: What happened the last time you needed help?
Well not the last time, but a funny one.. I was standing outside with the car, and called James inside, and simply said F1 F1 F1. Then my battery died, but he figured it out and came out to help me unload the car :)
FQ2: What happened the last time you helped somebody else?
Me? Help someone else? bwwwaaahahahahahah.. ahem.. :)
FQ3: What happened the last time you helped yourself?
How about helping myself to the scrummy food we had a Bruce's farewell today?
FQ ASSIST: Do something to help somebody today! Got a few extra dollars? Donate it to the Tsunami Relief Efforts (like the Red Cross at Amazon) or some other worthy cause. Don't have a few dollars to spare? Take a minute and use a FREE "click-to-donate" site (like The Hunger Site or The Animal Rescue Site. How did you help today?
I didn't donate today, but I did the other week. One of our neighbours is doing Avon stuff and they're doing a "Heart of Asia" pin. Maybe I'll get one of those.
