EYECARE that ROCKS
1 life goal - this can be realistic or pure fantasy.
To remove all forms of hardship and general toxicity in the human race to create general happiness for all.
What is your favourite tipple and where do you like to enjoy drinking it?
I LOVE most social alcohol drinks however rather partial to a Ratlers cider, I also love to to drink socially in any of our wonderful pubs in St Albans.
Jez to Karen: What would/can you do to improve toxic attitudes of some of St Albans people?
Karen: Keep communicating... Toxic people are a minority they just shout loudly - and if us positive people continue to talk, louder then things will hopefully change, or until they get bored and move on. No space welcome here for trolls!
