I never ever thought I’d say this in my life ever! I actually like going to the dentist. I got really lucky as the guy local to my flat is a lovely bloke and just does his job with the minimum of fuss. In fairness, most of the 10 minute check up time we’re nattering… More Protecting That Perfect Smile
The main man himself, Mr Jamie Oliver, is the self styled food conscience of the UK. Personally, I think he’s great.
