This product’s real name is NORDMÄRKE, but right now we have renamed it to the relationship problem you just googled. Because life evolves every day and everything, yes everything, can get better.
Q: I'm gearing up for my first big spring cleaning session with my sights set on an area I've been avoiding: the spice cabinet.
In Beijing, traffic leading to Ikea often blocks the city's fourth ring road.
"Before we set up an isolated area for them, they occupied the seats in the dining area for a long time, and thus other guests could not find a seat," said Shen Jinhua, an employee, to the Shanghai Daily newspaper.
I'm pretty sure there were a couple bottles of something or other in there that were certified antiques, pre-dating the Carter administration. The folks at Mc Cormick offer "to toss or not to toss" guidelines that are more generous: • Ground spices (nutmeg, cinnamon, turmeric): 2 to 3 years • Herbs (basil, oregano, parsley): 1 to 3 years • Seasoning blends: 1 to 2 years • Whole spices (cloves, peppercorns, cinnamon sticks): 4 years • Seeds: 4 years (except for poppy and sesame seeds, which should be discarded after 2 years) • Extracts: 4 years (except for vanilla, which will last forever) Pretty straightforward, eh?
Sure, but unless you keep some kind of "purchased on…" checklist inside of your cabinet it's probably hard to keep track of how long each and every spice has been kicking around.
But there’s one common thread we’ve discovered across couples everywhere.
It decided to stop what it called 'illegal date clubs'.
Hundreds of lonely elderly people went to IKEA's cafeteria in search of love. Managers said the old people sat down for too long, spoke loudly, spat on the floor and had arguments.
But the older people who use the cafe said they had nowhere else to go where they could find other people their own age.
"We've been to fast-food outlets like Mc Donald's, but there are barely any peers there," 86-year-old "Qiu" told Chinese state paper Global Times in comments carried by the BBC.
