a little vanity...a letter of mine was published in the Sydney Morning Herald today..thought I'd share Wink

Irons, vacuum cleaners and washing machines have no business being in Mother's Day advertising brochures.

Agree with you there Madame....

Good on you for writing in to the papers. And good on them for publishing it.

Keep up the good work!

Well said!

I am giggling at the responses to your letter! Do I hear a touch of defensiveness there???

I am put to mind of a quote I heard in a Simpons episode the other day. Marge admires a ring in a shop. Homer says "Maybe SOMEONE will get it for you for Christmas." In his head he says..."Now she'll REALLY be surprised with that ironing board cover I got her."
