      Important Announcement!   07/28/2018

      Dear BCF members,   This forum has been running now for many years, and over that time we have seen many changes. Generalised forums are nowhere near as popular as they once were, and they have been very much taken over by blogs, vlogs and social media discussions. Running a forum well takes money, and a lot of care and attention, as there is so much which goes on behind the scenes to keep things running smoothly.   With all of this in mind, and after discussion within the current moderator team, the decision has been made to close this forum in its current format. I know that this will disappoint a lot of our long term members, but I want to reassure you that it's not a decision which has been taken lightly.    The remaining moderator team have agreed that we do not want to lose everything which is special about our home, and so we are starting a brand new facebook group, so that people can stay in touch, and discussions can continue. We can use it for free and should be easier for us to run (it won't need to be updated or hosted). We know not everyone has FaceBook, but we hope that those of you who are interested will join the group. We will share the link, and send invites as soon as we are ready to go. Added: We may as well get this going, find us here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/195289821332924/   The forum will close to new registrations, but will remain open for some time, to allow people to collect up any information, reading lists etc they need to, and to ensure they have contact details for those they wish to stay in touch with.    The whole team feel sad to say goodbye, but we also feel that it's perhaps time and that it feels like the right choice. We hope we can stay in touch with all of you through our new FaceBook group.   I personally want to thank everyone who has helped me moderate the forum, both in the past and the present, and I also want to thank every single person who has visited, and shared their love of books.. I'm so proud of everything we've achieved, and the home we built.   Please visit the new section in the Lounge section to discuss this further, ask questions etc.

  1. Seems like you knew what you were doing in the kitchen :p. Did you find the first couple of days of cooking meals for yourself difficult?! Frozen veg, yeah economical, but I prefer fresh veg, but you don't have to prepare frozen veg, so quick and easy to prepare during exam period and stuff. I just boil frozen veg without any seasoning (yes really) and have it with chicken. I am a big fan of instant noodles, not the best food around and I know that, but hey they are ready within 5-10 mins :p. Have chicken 2-3 times a week, they are not too difficult to prepare at least the way I prepare them.

  9. I am a student and like many I am not very good at cooking. Know how to make very simple dishes, however I wouldn't consider them very healthy. So are there any fellow students on this forum, who know how to cook a few simple and nutritional dishes?
  10. I live in the UK, have been living in the UK for just over 5 years and come from Austria where they speak German, so are there any German speakers on this forum?

    Hi I am new on this forum :). Anyway, the sports I like are football, jogging and ice-skating. But to be honest if I knew every sport I would do them all, because I think every sport is fun :).
