History & 'allo 'allo - (Other)

Having just returned from a trip to the library, I find myself very disturbed by what I discovered in the history section.

Never having really paid attention in history class at school, my entire education pertaining to the second world war was based purely upon what I had watched in the late 80's BBC programme "'Allo 'Allo".

I had always thought that the WW2 was a funny event full of bumbling Italians ("Whadda mistake-a to make-a" - ha ha, hilarious), gay German tank drivers, French maids being chased by overweight French cafe owners, sexual innuendo and idiotic Oxford accented Englishmen. Oh how wrong I was.

Apparently people actually died in the millions, and rather unpleasantly too. In real life the Gestapo weren't laughable men with limps and gay sidekicks; in fact they weren't very nice at all.

I also found out after browsing the art section at the library, that The Fallen Madonna With The Big Boobies, by Van Clomp did not actually exist. I feel so embarrased having gone through the whole of art school saying that it was my favourite piece of classical art.

All in all, a very dstressing morning for me.

Face lotion that: helps with wrnielks, gives skin healthy glow, minimizes pores and helps with dark circles!?I know, I know I'm asking for a lot in one little tube. But I'm on the hunt for the crown jewel of face lotion something that addresses all of my thirty-something concerns. I need a product that helps with the lines around my mouth, my huge pores, and the dark circles under my eyes all while making my skin look healthier/glowier. Oh yeah I also get pimples on my chin/t-zone! So something that helps with that too! LOLWhen I google best face cream I just find a bunch of people selling their miracle cure , but I'd love some real reviews from women who've slathered their skin with tons of different products and finally found the ONE that WORKS!Currently I use Loreal pore minimizing face wash, close my pores with ponds toner (very gentle not too harsh), and then lotion up with Ponds nutrients. It works okay. Has anyone out there used a product that works and that they swear by? I don't care if I have to spend a lot of money, I just want something (or combination of somethings) that works. Thanks ladies!!!
