    Thanks for posting this - its all excellent advice.:clap: I have printed off a copy for the wife.
    Its just like they say 'Granny knows best'.
    Personally I think they should teach this type of thing as part of the National Curriculum.

    and the bloke who published that was found dead the day after it was publised, with his carpet slippers, pipe, neatly folded newspaper and favourite meal all shoved up his jacksie. :biggrin:

    Brave, brave man.

    Take it and gender reverse it and therein lies the basis of the modern relationship :wink:

    You obviously missed the bit about "Be a little gay and a little more interesting for him".:rolleyes: I know some men who would really appreciate that kind of thing.

    Although frankly I am appalled and disgusted. It's hard to believe they fell for that even in the 1950s. I've never understood the bra-burning thing (let's face it it only rebounds on you, so to speak) but if that's what they had to contend with then I can see the point.

    And before anyone jumps on me, yes I do see the humour, it's very funny and it did make me giggle. But it still gets my back up at the same time...:mad: :-? ;) :D

    Its funny - when I printed it out and showed it to my wife, pointing out that it was from a "respectable journal" - Housekeeping Monthly - all she did was to throw it out of the window!

    I've just shown this to my boyf and he asked if I've ever thought of subscribing. Needless to say my answer included a few unpostable words and what will be an empty dinner plate.
    I wonder if there is a male version of this amgazine? Any ideas of what it might be called?

    Ah, but then the washing wouldn't get done so promptly, the grass wouldn't get cut, nor the Hoovering, nor the floors washed ..... (I could go on!)

    (3 years ago - while cutting one of the hedges - I did manage to throw myself from a height by stepping where the platform wasn't and succeeded in breaking both bones in my right forearm! 6 weeks in a plaster over the hottest summer for years - not nice:frown:)

    Interestingly, it seems we may have been "had": seems to imply that the image is a forgery: noone seems to be able to find anything about "Housekeeping Monthly" and the picture is from an Advertising Archive...
