As you may know, we have a weekly feature, Team Oracle, whereby each Friday we open questions of a personal nature to all of you to answer too. Then, the following Friday, I post a selection of the best answers, alongside my own reply.

ANYONE can join in so, if you'd like to, please email your response to the following question, in no more than 250 words, to before midnight Thursday 14th November.

Dear Oracle,
How do you know if a friend is true? I mean, without all that "you'll know who is your friend when you're in trouble" thing, I don't face any big problems in my life at this time. There must be a way to find out!!! Thanks.
Love, Lina. Lithuania.

Look forward to seeing your replies.

The Oracle.
