I love this post! It's wonderful to get older folks online and unafraid of technology. I'm the resident techie in my family (and workplace) so I'm always looking for ways to help the generations before me use their stuff.

Something that really annoys me is when there are 8 items on a plate (ie. 8 pieces of meat or 8 canapes) at the table and someone takes more than their fair share of food without asking (ie. taking 3 pieces when there are 4 people at the table). Even though I am a small eater and only take 1 piece, I feel like the person wanting "my" piece should ask for it! Often, my boyfriend, who is a bigger eater wants it too and is too polite to say anything if someone takes more than their share. As a result he often leaves dinner parties hungry. He'd be willing to share the last piece with someone!!

We found a trunk that we use as a side table in our living room. Since we live in a super small apartment with two teeny closets we use it for food and tool storage. Things like 10kg bags of flour, rice and sugar as well as dozens of jars of jam we made. We also store leftover paint etc in it, stuff that you don't need to get at very often. You can see it here:

I bought these last year thinking they were actual cloth napkins and I could use them for ages. They got ratty pretty fast and since I was buying them to not throw things away, I'm annoyed by that. I agree with galbella, real cloth napkins are the way to go. I should have read the label a bit more closely!
