    Oaps Are Not Stupid!

    I was very angry last week when I was a victim of ageism.  Because of my health I have just moved into a lovely sheltered flat in Erskine.  I wasn't quite sure how to set up my FreeSat TV box.  To save there being loads of satellite dishes on every flat, several flats share a...

    It annoys me so much

    when people see age gaps as such an issue like I will be with who ever I want regardless of our difference in age and I also think that interfering parents who would call the police and press rape charges against a minor's older partner are just ignorant and sometimes very...
