    Why do people want:
    1. More money even after attaining the desired amount ?
    2. More name fame even after attaining the desired name fame ?
    3. Even more less-work after attaining the desired job ?
    Is it possible to get all (3) three fulfilled at the one same time? If yes, then give me the solution.

    If NOT, then what are you trying for in this world, actually ?

    Or, tell all the funny things that you’re trying.

    Chinu, once upon a time, I was doing a news story on palmistry for a magazine, and the palmist gave me a free reading. When he offered to answer one important question, and I asked, he told me it was the very first time in his carer he'd been asked that question.

    Have you not been introduced to the 1%??? They literally make money and fame by basically doing nothing compared to most of the rest of us.

    Caramelised onion.
    Yes, but I had to go to Stage III for success - Banging it on the floor.

    Thanks for asking. :)

    Hubbys can be over-rated. Anyway, I've decreed that 105 kitchen utensils is quite sufficient! (An avocado slicer???) o_O

    Well I was trying to find a way to help @Secret Chief get the lid off his jar of chutney, but it appears that’s already been accomplished.

    I guess I’m done here.

    It's good to know my chutney jar was the focus of a global assistance programme. :)

    I agree there, i often tell mine that im going to trade him in for a new model.


    If you limit yourself to 105 then i truly believe getting rid of one you don't use (not all) and filling the gap with a useful jar opener

    Note, i haven't any shares in the company that manufacturers them

    I always have a lot of success with the gentle tapping method. Hot water also works wonder sometimes. At my age, I need to lean more techniques. Arms aren't the strength they used to be. I love my mango chutney.

    I love mango chutney, but it takes such a lot of mangos. I make chutney when there is a glut, mangos are not native here so no glut. But a couple of years ago a market trader had boxes that needed to go that day.

    This year its figs and tomatoes . A neighbour brought us a bucket full (big bucket) of figs that made 6 large jars of fig chutney (delicious) and 6 jars of jig jam (jelly), nice but very thick, needs a sharp knife to cut.

    Also made some jars of tomato chutney using various heritage tomatoes from a local organic farmer.
