      Aften having been off Dooyoo for the last couple of months, this was a new surprise for me. The whole site has changed since I last visited, but when I signed in this popup appeared from Dooyoo. It is called the DooyooSelector and it there for you to choose what type of advetising you want to see. There are 5 different categories to choose from Technology Money and Finance Lifestyle and Travel No Preference Entertainment All these titles are placed around a round knob. Whatever one you wish to be on your page, you just click on the word and Dooyoo sets up the adverts for you. It is sensible to choose one, because if you don't every page you click on will end up having the popup on, so when you click it will go away. I don't care much about adverts, as I have never bought anything because of adverts on the site, but it will be handy for people looking for a certain type of thing. I think we all know that Dooyoo have to earn money from someplace to pay us, so I am happy to choose adverts to earn them money.

        Disadvantages

        I was a fan of this show when it had been running for a year or two, but near the end of the shows, it went a bit downhill and wasn't really worth watching. The host was Chris Evans and it was on every friday at 18:00, then repeated at 23:00. It lasted for an hour. There were famous people on for interviews, live bands, jokes, competitions and the show was just a laugh. The stuff Chris used to do was strange, but pretty good. He would have a hose with the water squirting up to the window, then he would throw things out the window and time them on the stopwatch to see how long they stayed in the water. At first it was just cardboard cutouts and small things, then at the end he threw out a piano and a phonebox! The other game that was not bad was "baby left, baby right". Someone would have to guess which way a baby on a video tape fell and if they guesses right, then they got £20 or something like that. Chris held the show in a sort of pub. It had a bar in the room he hosted the show from and downstairs was where the bands played. It was a good show, but it ran it's course and is better that it ended when it did!

          This is a good talk show in my opinion. Fair enough it can be a bit over the top sometimes and I am fed up with the shows about transsexuals, but more of the shows are pretty entertaining. The host in Jerry Springer and he invites guests on to basically cause destruction. The normal procedure is a woman tells her husband she is cheating on him with his brother, he gets furious and knocks the chairs off, then he sets about his brother and tries to fight him and that's it. This show is shown on Sky Digital's Living channel 112 everyday. I think it is on from 18:10 until 19:00, then repeated at about 23:00. There can be violence on the show and there ofter is. A lot of the storylines are unbelievable - a woman left her husband to live with a 30 year old baby. She fed him and changed his nappy and so on. Also a woman was having an affair with her dog. This show is warped and would not be suitable for everyone as it could cause offence.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            I had a Fiat Tipo for about a year and a half. It was a good little run about and I only got rid of it about 6 months ago as I was looking for a car that would suit different needs. Mines was a 1990 G register, 1.6l DGT. It was metallic Blue and looked great when I bought it. I paid £1050 for it in July 1999. I got the 5 door version. It had electric windows and a sunroof. Perhaps not the poshest specifications, but when I saw the car, I thought it was worth the money. I'm not sure if everyone will agree with that last statement, But I never had any trouble with it when I had it, and I got offered quite good money when I traded it in for my latest car. I used the car a lot. Mostly on long distances and motorway driving and think it offered about 48 miles per gallon. I think that was not bad, as I done mostly long distances, but also quite a lot of town driving as well. I replaced the odd bits and pieces. It was nothing serious, but I felt better to spend a few pounds and be assured of the new parts. I didn't think that spare parts for this car were that expensive - especially conpared to other manufacturers. Also I found that the scrapyards around here had a vast selections of these cars in (i'm sure that is a bad sign!) so it was cheap and easy to find and buy parts for this model. This model was introduced in 1988/1989 and ran until about 1994 I think. At that time it was replaced by the Brava, but I preferred the Tipo. I think this car was good. It was easy to drive, cheap to replace parts and I just liked the general look of it. I would have another one and it was a good, reliable runabout!

              Disadvantages

              I tried this flavour about a month ago and just found this flavour on Dooyoo. I found this flavour to be quite boring as there didn't seem to be much extra lumps of delicious stuff like other Ben and Jerry's products. It was vanilla ice cream, which was nice, but I am not a huge fan of vanilla. I think that strawberry or chocolate ice cream is better. In the ice cream tub there were caramel swirls and chocolate fudge lumps. Maybe I had a bad tub, but it seemed like I hardly got any caramel or fudge. I am a big fan of Ben and Jerry's ice cream and never have any reason to complain about the ice cream. In every other tub I have had the normal amount of ice cream and plenty of chips, marshmallow, fudge brownie and so on. Maybe it is just the the amount that's meant to be mixed in with this flavour, but I thought it was a bit stingy. This cost £3.29 for a 500ml tub. It is not the most expensive amount I have paid for this brand, but I wouldn't buy this flavour again. It really wasn't my type.

                Disadvantages

                This film came out in 1998 and I first saw it when it came on Sky as a pay per view. The waterboy is Bobby Bouchet - he is played by Adam Sandler, who was great in the wedding singer. Bobby is a boy who has not been educated much in his life. He doesn't have a dad and lives with his mum - who is played by Kathy Bates. He is a mummy's boy and his mum, fearing he would leave her, hasn't let him do much or go many places when he was growing up. So he has turned out shy and uneducated. He wanted to be a football player, but was getting told he was too stupid to be one, so he became their waterboy instead. That didn't work out that well and he got sacked. He got another job as a waterboy for another team that Henry Winkler - The Fonze from Happy Days was coaching. As usual the team start picking on Bobby and in a rage he runs at ne of them and knocks them down. The coach sees he has potential and hires him for the team. Bobby can't tell his mum though as she wouldn't approve so he goes about training in secret. When he has been on the team for a while he gets a girlfriend called Vikki - who is played by Fairuza Balk who was Nancy in "The Craft". Again his mum doesn't approve of her and when Bobby brings her home for a meal, his mum shows her distain and says she is no good for her little boy. As usual these films end on a happy note. Everyone gets on well in the end and his mum accepts that her son is a football player. It is funny, but some of the humour is stupid. It is a great film and I think most people should like it.

                  Disadvantages

                  The TV series Sabrina the teenage witch has been on TV for the past few years non stop and is probably aimed at teenagers mainly. However I have watched it sometimes and my 8 year old niece is a big fan. The main character is Sabrina Spellman played by Melissa Joan Hart. Sabrina is half a witch and she lives with her 2 aunts - Hilda and Zelda who are also witches. Sabrina goes to school and does normal things with her friends. None of the friends are witches and I don't think they know Sabrina is a witch. Also Sabrina's boyfriend Harvey has no idea about the situation. There is also a talking cat called Salem. I think he used to be a leader in a past life and he done wrong, so he got turned into a cat. I would say this show would be mainly for teenagers up to 16 I think, but if this is on and nothing else is then I have been known to watch it as it is quite good. It is american and can be a comedy most of the time. It is on Sky digital often on channel 604. The times vary occasionally, but is on around 16:00 - 17:00. A lot of the times Sky has a Sabrina weekend where they show most of the episodes non stop and back to back all weekend. I think in that case I would probably get bored of it. I like it now and again, but there could be too much of it. It is also on CITV sometimes and it is usually on about 16:30.

                  I don't know how many times I have watched this film, but I will never get bored of it. It came out in 1996. I think it is rated as a horror, in a way it is a horror, but not as bad! A new girl - Sarah Bailey, moves into a new town and goes to school. As usual she is not sure of stuff there and sets about to make friends. She tried to team up with 3 girls - Bonnie, Nancy and Rochelle, but they ignore her when she tries to make friend. The 3 girls are witches. However they don't know that Sarah is a kind of witch until Bonnie sees her doing magic. After that Bonnie talks to Nancy, who is the ringleader, and gets her to invite Sarah to join their group as they were looking for a 4th member. So Sarah settles down with her new friends - doing harmless spells and having a laugh. Sarah makes a boy she likes fall in love with her and Bonnie uses magic to get rid of the scars on her body. However when they do all the funny, harmless spells it turns serious. Nancy is looking for the bigger, better spell and she takes things too far. Towards the end of the film it gets serious with a lot of Sarah and Nancy battling their spells out on each other. The end is good and what should happen does. It is a great film all the way through and also the soundtrack is good as well. If you haven't seen this then I think you should.

                  This film came out in 1992 and a sequel was made to this as well, which was quite similar. The story is about the main character called Helen. She is a researcher into urban myths and legends. The latest one she is working on is the Candyman legend. As legend goes if you say his name 5 times while looking in the mirror then he will appear behind you. A situation had meant to have happened to a young girl and that is why Helen is researching. Also her friend helps her with the work. They interview people, go around housing estates and take loads of pictures to try and piece together the clues of this mythical murderer. I don't want to reveal much of the film as it would spoil it, but Helen finds out a lot about the myth and gets to the truth. It is one of the better horror films I have seen - not because I think it is scary, it is well written, makes you think and is different to other horror films I have seen. It may be coming up to 10 years old, but I could still watch it nowadays and still sit through it!

                    Advantages

                    Disadvantages

                    The plot of the film is a business man is on his way to a meeting some distance away. He sets out in his car - a Plymouth. It starts off as a normal journey - listening to the radio etc. As he starts to get out into the countryside, he finds himself closing in on what appears to be an old, smelly, stinking great lorry (an articulated lorry). The lorry is smoking quite badly, so he overtakes it and settles down to his normal driving pace. A short time later the lorry overtakes him and slows down in front of him. So when the car driver realises he is slowing down, he decided to overtake again as he is in a bit of a hurry. The reason he is in a hurry is he has to see the business client before he leaves the office, or he may lose the deal. When he overtakes the lorry, the lorry driver blows his horn. This is the start of the car driver's worst nightmare! The car driver, after a few miles pulls in to a service station to get petrol. The attendant asks him if he would like him to check under the hood (the bonnet), then says to him "it looks like you could use a new radiator hose". The car driver says "i'll get one later. Thanks". He obviously thinks this is just a con to get a bit extra money as he says quietly to himself "Where have I heard that one before". But by this time the lorry has pulled in to get diesel and the driver is out of the cab, because you can see his feet, but you never get to see his face out the entire film. The car driver sets off back on his way again and a few miles later the lorry comes up behind him very quickly. When the roads clear again, the lorry overtakes and swerves in front of him again. A few cars pass in the opposite direction, then the lorry driver's hand comes out the window to wave him past, and as he goes to overtake there is an oncoming car so they both swerve to get out of each others way, then the car driver realises the lorry driver may be tr
                    ying to cause an accident. The car driver makes up his mind he is going to pass this lorry once and for all so he floores it and starts to pass rapidly, but as he does so the lorry starts to move across the road to force him off the road, but the car driver manages to go up a small dirt track parallel to the road and he manages to get out in front of the lorry. The lorry slows down a bit and the car driver is happy because he thinks he has won the duel. And so starts to relax. Then the lorry starts to accelarate from a long way back, but the car driver doesn't hear it coming as the radio is quite loud and he is not paying much attention to his mirrors. Then the car driver gets the fright of his life when the lorry blows it's horn right behind him. So he tries to accelarate away from the lorry, but the lorry is quicker than he thinks, and the car driver is not very confident at handling a car at speed, so he is not a very good driver at these speeds and the lorry keeps closing in and blowing it's horn and the car driver gets even more panicky, as everytime he looks in the mirror, this huge lorry is right behind him. The lorry starts to drive into the back of the car and by this time the speeds are up around the 90 mile an hour mark, almost reaching the 100 then the car driver sees a roadside diner and so breaks hard and swerves off into the car park and ends up in a fence. An old man comes over to see if he's alright. He has a little whiplash and is a bit dazed, but he recovers quickly. When he's inside the diner he looks outside the window and sees the lorry parked outside. So he goes across to a man and starts hassling him thinking he is the driver of the lorry. The man tells him to get lost, so the car driver starts a fight with him and ends up getting roughed up. So the man leaves and drives away in his little truck, so the car driver realises it wasn't him and leaves. The car stops to help a broken down
                    school bus, but can't then the lorry comes back, so the car driver disappeares in a cloud of dust, but looks in the mirror and sees the lorry is pushing the bus to get it started. He thinks he is in the clear again, then the lorry starts chasing him again. A few miles down the road they hit the incline leading up a mountain pass and the lorry begins to slow as the hill is very steep so the car quickly manages to get out of sight round the twisty turns, but then the radiator hose bursts and the car starts to overheat, then obviously as the engine reaches boiling point it starts to lose power and speed, then the lorry comes into view. The engine is not far away from seizing when they reach the top, so he slips the car into neutral and lets it pick up speed down the steep gradient, but crashes at the bottom. By this time the lorry has reached the top and is starting to decend very fast. The car driver manages to get his car started again and starts to go up what lookes like a disused rough road leading to a sort-of quarry, then near the edge of the cliff face, he turns the csr round to face the lorry which is coming towards him. He jumps out at the last second, the lorry rams the car and starts pushing it. If you want to know the end - you have to watch it. The main character ( the car driver) was played by Dennis Weaver. The stunt driver for the car was the great Dale Van Sickle and the lorry, who's driver you never saw, was driven by Gary Loftin. It came out in about 1974/75 and was directed by Steven Spielberg.

                      I thought these channels were meant to offer Porn? Well where is it? Fair enough I must admit i've only ever watched the 10 minute preview about 4 times, and I was lucky to watch all 10 minutes. It was boring. Of course I am a woman so what would I know! All i've seen on the previews are lesbian threesomes, ancient men ( no one I would ever want to sleep with) and all these tarts phoning up the Adult Channel number. Now they keep boasting that it "gets hotter and harder after incription. So dial the number". It would have to get hotter as ther is no heat in the preview. What i've seen those 4 times, I haven't been convinced to order the channel. I think the channel costs £5 a night and it is on from 22:00 until 05:00. Or if you subscribe for a year it costs £7 a month. As with most adult channels they seem to aimed at men (or lesbians I suppose). I'm sure there are some women out there who would watch these channels if they had studs on in various situations, but that will probably never happen. So to conclude this channel looks crap. Maybe what's on the channel is what men are into, but all the men i've asked said this is not for them!

                        I have only just tried this flavour. I was in Edinburgh today and found this flavour in a corner shop. They sold the normal 500ml tubs, but also smaller ones as well. I never knew you could get different sizes, but I think it is a new thing out. This small tub cost £1.19. I think it was 100ml, but I can't really remember. The 500ml tub was £4.25. Now on to the good part - the taste of this delicious ice cream. It is my favourite next to Phish Food. It has the same creamy milk chocolate ice cream as Phish Food. Also it has chocolate covered almonds, walnuts, pecans and dark and white chocolate chips. As with all Ben and Jerry ice creams the ingrediants is well mixed in and throughout the tub I got something extra in my chocolate ice cream. My favourite bits were the white chocolate chips as they were quite big and tasted great with the ice cream. The small tub was just enough because it was starting to get a bit sickly, but the taste was amazing. It was so tasty and I would certainly buy this flavour again. I have never seen it around where I stay though! If you like Ben and jerry, and love Phish Food then this is ther flavour for you!

                          I tried this flavour about 3 months ago and I have just finished the tub yesterday. First of all it was edible and good, but not my tupe of flavour. So I didn't like it, but ate most of the tub to give it the benefit of the doubt. It is creamy cherry ice cream. It is quite a dark tasting cherry ( if you know what I mean. Well I suppose I would say it was a strong flavoured ice cream). Throughout the tub there was big chunks of milk chocolate and halves of walnut. This all makes for a very weird taste combination, but all the ingrediants taste good when alone or all mixed together. As with all Ben and Jerry ice cream it is expensive, but the ingrediants are good and there is the good ice cream mixed with plenty of chunks and nuts. I feel they don't skimp that way. A tub of this will cost you £3.89 for 5ooml. It is good, but since it is expensive you will probably only buy this every once in a while. I suppose that makes it more special. So I didn't like it much as the ice cream was a bit too overpowering for me. If you are into Ben and Jerry ice cream it is another good quality dessert. So I feel you should try it and make your own mind up. Enjoy!

                            I just had to buy this product after reading about it on this site. I was able to find it in only 2 shops, and I had to pay slightly more for it out of these shops, but it was worth it. It comes in a 500ml tub and cost me £3.89. It is dear, but tastes good. The ice cream is rich, creamy milk chocolate and there is loads of pieces of fudge brownie mixed through. It is sickly to an extent, but if you were just to eat some at a time it would last longer and you wouldn't get sick of it. I would be happy to eat the ice cream on it's own as it has such a luxurious taste to it, but the fudge brownie pieces make this excellent dessert even better. It is quite difficult to ramble on about an ice cream and in my opinion it is gorgeous. This is my view, so go and try it and tell everyone else your view. Very tasty and an excellent taste.

                              I used to always wear really thin pads. I thought they were the best and even at night I would wear them. However, I used to lead out them sometimes mostly at night and everyone will know that it is not a nice feeling. I first bought these because they were on offer and also I thought I should try a thicker pad. At first these cost me £2 for 2 packs of 14 when they were on special offer. Now they cost £1.45 and are still worth it. I will admit they are really thick, but believe me you do forget about them. They are comfy. I have never had any spills with these and doubt I will either. A lot of the time this company does a deal. It is 33% extra free, so you get an extra 4 pads in the pack for free. These do a great job. Using these pads I can get a good sleep without worrying what I will find in the morning.
