User avatar Four Word Reviews: Footprints

Whenever a little CD-sized padded envelope arrives in my postbox, it’s like a time capsule. Where will we go? Terrible cartoon cover versions of the 90s? Forgotten Gospel from the 60s?

User avatar Stop your life! Everyday solutions

What do you do when you want to talk to girls? Do you have a manual that you refer to? WRONG. Books cannot help. What about some chat up lines? WRONG. They never work, they’ve been heard a million times before and you’ll sound like a cheese ball. What you need is the Smoochies Inc […]
