  • Taking a shower
  • Sitting on the toilet
  • Driving to work
  • Taking the dog for a walk
  • Washing the dishes

    1. Happens to me all the time. The majority of my best ideas come when I’m on the toilet. I actually wrote something about this recently, I’ll dig it out and use it in my Blog and do a talkback link to this seeing as it gave me the idea!

    2. Where is my comment? Whenever I make comments they never seem to be there, although sometimes they appear hours later. Anyway, no one else is saying anything so I may as well try another one. If the other one also appears, you’ll have two for the price of one. Can’t be bad.

    3. It takes a few moments for blogger comments to show up. You should should see it by the time you’ve finished flushing the toilet. :-)

    4. But seriously, if your comment hasn’t yet shown up just hit the refresh button on your browser. Or, if that hasn’t worked force a refresh with the ctrl-f5 keys and you should see it. This has been a public service announcement.
