    Hooray finally able to log on again! I know this is not the attitude for this thread but I knew more of you would see it.
    @wild edges I was not ignoring your advice but I had already cleared browsing history  cookies etc , that was the start of the trouble. I looked up solutions to 404 error & that what it told me to do - eventually did it again & hey presto it has worked even though the site makes me log on twice  every time at the moment. I know a lot of you access with a phone but I find that a real PITA, which is I believe where this thread came in!  :D

    A Boy - for Eurovision purposes, Israel has been a part of it for decades as has Turkey.   Last year I seem to remember Oz was a special guest competitor.   I reckon it's all about who is willing and able to stump up the TV fees for broadcasting which have to be paid to have an entrant so it's all about money, not geography.

    I think the site has a glitch that make you sign in twice. Sometimes I open up the forum on the PC and it tells me to log in but if I hit the new posts button or forum home it realises I'm already logged in.

    I think you need to have plumped up lips and other parts of your anatomy.If nature has been stingy , you use silicone or Photoshop and when you have reached the required level of perfection, you give your opinion on the most fashionable kebab shop or begonia or  whatever.

    @B3 That now makes sense of what I read the other day about such people having to say if they are paid for their promotion of fashion etc.
