1.....After more than 60 years, Kleenex has been forced to rebrand it's "Mansize" tissues after receiving complaints that the brand was sexist. Kimberly-Clark which owns Kleenex, said the tissues would be now known as "Extra Large" , despite not itself believing that the Mansize branding suggests or endorses gender inequality. Is comes amid a wider backlash against unnecessary "gendered" products, which consumers and campaigners criticising manufactures of razor, pens, confectionary and other products over potentially harmful gender stereotyping. My thoughts.....Mrs Plym has been buying this item for years....to her "Mansize" suggests that they are stronger and not just a larger tissue.....not like some of the smaller thinner ones that just disintegrate in your hand when you use them....meaning that you need another tissue to "clean" your hands. Daily Telegraph...18/10/2018. This is total poppycock, I think Kimberly-Clark shouldn't of caved in to the politically correct morons. 2.....A couple who tend a bed of dahlias outside their cottage have been told they must dig up the flowers because they are impeding drivers. Sally Williams, 69, and her husband Brian, 80, first planted the verge opposite their home in Loxley, near Sheffield, over three decades ago to encourage wildlife and bring colour to the lane. However, following an anonymous complaint to Sheffield council, the council sent a letter saying that they had a week to dig up the flowers or pay for it to be done by the authority. The Council said: "We have sympathy with the nearby homeowner. Unfortunately the placing of flower beds, on the highway outside the property, could be a danger to road users." The stones were originally placed to prevent the erosion of the road, which had to be resurfaced a few years ago after it fell into disrepair. Tending to the dahlias and shrubs had helped Mr Williams recuperate when he was ill, and the news has left the couple, "absolutely devastated". Mrs Williams said: "It (the issue) is deeper than a few flowers, we were doing are bit for the environment. We increased butterflies, bees and birds in the area, which was our primary aim. "The land the council is supposed to manage overgrows the white lines, there are fallen leaves that are wet and dangerous." Neighbours have started a petition to save the garden. It has gained more than 1,000 signatures so far. Daily Telegraph...18/10/2018. My thoughts.....How many accidents have happened there over the 30 years that the Williams have been tending this flower border....I assume maybe that a new busy body neighbour has moved in and is probably jealous of what they've done. PS.....A great picture in the paper showing the couple and the flower borders.....the borders are pushed back from the white line edging the road....I doubt if that can be said for the rest of the lane.
