jakka13
Just off the phone with Boots .After waiting 16 months to see a specialist for her hands she has been referred to a different kind of doctor so her waiting starts again .Her computer fried .Smoke coming out the back of it so it will be a while before she gets back on line again .
She asked me to send her love to all her pals and tell you all she thinks of you all often and wishes she could come on here and have a gab .In the meantime she can have a gab with me and I'll fill her in with the happenings on the boards ,and I can fill the boards in on the happenings with her .
She won't be able to make the meet on the 3rd .Just too much for her to handle on her own .
Keelie hope your OK .Betty hope the knee isn't too sore .
Can't keep my eyes open here .I've been up early and I've had a busy frustrating day so I'll just bid you all goodnight ,sleep tight ,
cheers Jakka
betty2
Hi all just finished watchin ma team win 3-2 Having mixed days wae the knee jakka one good next bad but hopefully it,ll be rectified soon , am still waitin for my appointment also. NHS is never in a hurry. Or I,m in too much of a hurry. Still better days ahead rolleyes.gif
tammy
Hi All, Keeli have been trying to ring you all morning, but I'm not sure if you're out or if our new sever is playing up! I will perservere though and get you eventually! LOL! Jakka please say hello o Boots for me, she must be a bit stressed with all her delays and health problems,tell her I send her my love. Betty it was great to hear from you the other day, you sounded so positive it made me smile. Good on you, you take each day a it comes and don't seem to let it knock you down. You are one strong lady! I hope everything goes well for you and your knee op. I have a feeling once it's done, there will be no stopping you! I will send you good luck vibes for Vegas, that you are as lucky there as you are at Bingo! Yesterday Phil and I went downtown and did a bit of shopping for Brittany for her trip to Thailand! We are so nervous, she is going away for a month to Thailand backpacking with her boyfriend!!! We got her a lovely backpack and I bought her some clothes for the hot weather. She will be off in less than 2 weeks and I will be stressed out until she comes back home safe and sound! Where we are nervous, she is more than excited! She keeps reminding me she is 20 yrs old! And I keep thinking to myself "so?"! LOL! Wee Mags, what have you been up too lately, it seems ages since we have had a chat. Melody, Marina and Isobel, what's new with all of you? I've been so out of the loop for so long as I gave up on posting because of a few who seemed to take great pleasure in ruining it for many. But, you were always in my thoughts. And like a few others, I have kept in contact through e-mail's and msn. Every so often I pop in though and see the new photos in the gallery and try and say hello in here. Seems my pal Angie has been missing for a few weeks now to. Aww well maybe she 's just resting herself up and having a break. Jimmy D give us a song pal. wub.gif
betty2
Angela is fine Tammy spoke with her earlier on today. rolleyes.gif

Likewise Tammy, I lost interest in GG for the same reason. I only pop in very occasionally now but keep in touch with others by email etc......It only takes one bad apple to spoil a barrowload mad.gif
Melody
Hi all, nice of you to mention me Tammy it's also nice to see your name again. I'm afraid I have felt exactly the same as you all about the boards for a long time now. They have lost some special ingredient for a lot of us now. sad.gif I seldom post, although I do look in. Kind regards to all.
betty2
Hi melody thanks for popping in nice to see friendly faces biggrin.gif
betty2
Well its sweet dreams for me g.night all

Java
Have ye heard the sayin 'cause trouble in an empty hoose'?

Ah'll apologise in advance Betty, cos ah'm really no meanin' tae, but ah know ye appreciate straight talkin, so here we go....

From Tammy 'I gave up on posting because of a few who seemed to take great pleasure in ruining it for many. ' My recollection is that you slipped up when calling another member names by sending the message to the person you were calling....still, let's start naming names so that at least we all know where we stand...if I'm one of your 'few', feel free to post it.

From Avril 'Likewise Tammy, I lost interest in GG for the same reason' - do correct me if ah'm wrong, but seems to me you lost interest when you took offence at my suggestion that your first few posts were made in order to sell your book. Since the first five or six posts were exactly the same and in different topics, I thought it a reasonable assumption and there was certainly no insult intended. So again, if I'm the bad apple you refer to, feel free to put my name next time.

Oh, and ah've changed the lightbulb in the loabby...biggrin.gif
wee mags
well betty I ran tae the chinese take out there ,and the bliddy rain was coming doon in buckets ,but I had my handy dandy brolly fae the Pound store in Glesga so I wis awe right wink.gif
tammy
Java, I have no idea why you have got yourself so bent out of shape. Nothing I have posted was directed to you or anyone in particular. But,you felt the need to try and stir up old trouble and gossips when i was popping in to say hello and voicing my reasons for not coming in so often as others have also stated in various threads at different times. Also, if I had an issue with a particular person and I choose to not bring it all up once again, I fail to see why you have taken it upon yourself to do so. And here in Betty's wee house of all places. And since you brought it up, be careful who your friends are, cause my friend you never did get the true story, but I couldn't care less one way or the other. It's all ancient history as far as I'm concerned. funny how many people wanted me to see your post. And hear was me, thinking what have I ever done to Java. Oh well.

Betty, I am laughing here reading you have your case packed and ready to go months in advance! I think you are definitely ready pal!

Now who would like a splash of Bailey's?
betty2
Well dont know whit this is aboot Java was confused therr , but both you and Tammy have had youre say, no fur me tae say whit gets brought up in here . But noo yiv chinged the bulb in the lobby lets hope that will shed new light oan the subject biggrin.gif And Tammy fill ma gless a bailleys will go doon well . As fur packing so early it wis jist that as ah wis treatin masel tae some new gear [as one does] thought might as well put it in the case then jist kept adding the rest. Hence ma bags are packed an ready tae go

GG
Can we please have less public discussion of how the boards 'are not what they used to be', as it clearly alienates and irks a large number of members who joined the boards later. Things have changed: the boards - with 5200 registered members - will never be exactly what they were in the early days with 200 members. I hope that those who were lucky to experience the 'early days' of the boards keep that memory and help to continue to build a bigger and better boards in the future for everyone.

If anyone has any complaints about any aspect of the boards they should PM me.

GG.
Catherine
Well Martin ye kin say whit ye waant but as far as ahm concernt some things never change.....ah mean that's you giein everybudy a row again an it's only hauf seven in the mornin here.

CAT
Hi Martin as I'm new ah don't know whit the boards were like before but all I can sayis I think the're great. i've had lovely chats with some really nice people and some good discussions with various opinions being shared. All in all a great wee place tae be. Just like the dear green place itself full of friendly people but always got somethin tae say for their self. wink.gif
GG
Thanks for your kind comments CAT, delighted to hear them and I'm sure your view is shared by the vast majority of users -- both registered members and the hundreds of guests -- who visit the boards each day.

GG.
Marion Niven Dougan
Martin, you had every right to put the post up. Yes!!! we may all think, gosh the boards no the same, but keep it to yourself. We will chase new members away. I am on this board every day. Sometimes I post, sometimes I don't, my choice. Lets try to keep all the negative stuff away,
Have a great day y'all

Hello marion how are you hope all is going well with your treatment pal x
tammy
Hi Keelie, well wasn't that a fantastic gab we had. Do you know we were on the phone nearly an hour! And I did find chepa flights, but Phil has reminded me we are supposed to be going to Florida for Christmas this year. He said there is no reason why Keelie and her other half an't come to our house though! LOL! He said you can attempt to hound him on the phone but, he has call dispaly! Cheeky bugger huh! But, it's not completely out of the works yet. After our chat I ran out and picked up a few more things for Brittany's trip. I can't help myself, I want to make sure she has everything she needs.

Betty I have some freshly baked lemon scones and I put the kettle on. I've done the stairs and have aired the place out. Curtains are washed and hung back up. Keelie did a fab job with those mop slippers, the florrs are sparkling! In't it about time we had another party in here? or is it me just wanting another excuse for Jakka to make her famous punch and for Melody to give us a song?
betty2
Hi ladies a fine job wid recommend yis ony time. Melody disnae need coaxin fur a sing song so let the party begin rolleyes.gif

Thanks Marion, I agree totally with you: let's keep things positive and the boards will go from strength to strength, there's no point in going on and on about any marginal negative stuff. The biggest positive -- and it is a big one -- is that we now have 5000+ members, which is simply phenomenal!!!

GG.
Isobel
5000+ MEMBERS WOW. Thats fantastic Martin. As you say lets keep it positive.Change can be good.
Just my opinion.
wee mags
I for one think the board not the same, but its no problem to me ,as I just come in every once in a while now .but then my Glasgow is not the same as life changes so lets not post negative things to hurt each others feelings wink.gif this is a wonderful site full of wonderful people and I have had some rere teres here myself biggrin.gif
jakka13
I've been away from Glasgow for over forty years .A lot of things have changed .Life happens .I love my City ,I accept the changes ,some I think are great and some not so good .
They say a change is as good as a holiday and that's what I feel about the boards .I enjoy the banter .
Posts I don't care for I don't read .If there is a particular person I don't care for I just don't respond to their posts .
I come on hear to chat with like minded people ,not to have petty arguments .There will always be people in your life who annoy you ,I just deal with it .Life's too short to get your knickers in a twist about trivialities .Good saying !!!"DON'T SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF "
Now the punch is made ,I've been making fudge for Saturday so I brought some in .I turned up the gas mantle on the landing so the Provie Man can find his way up the stairs .I need a line for Goldbergs to get some shoes .
Elma
Oooh Jakka, punch and fudge, I'm in..............let the party begin laugh.gif

I agree with you all, I come on to the boards every day but if I don't see anything I want to reply to, I don't, and there are some topics I ignore completely as they have no interest for me as they seem to only go round and round with the same ***** comments. OK I'll be positive from now on smile.gif
Catherine
Mind swap the number oan yer door Jakka so's he cannae find ye when it's time tae pay him back laugh.gif

Lookin forward tae Saturday, we'll miss ye mags ...oh an you too Elma, ye sneaked in therr biggrin.gif

That's just a saying Java and was not intended for any one in particular.

Re your comments on my book, Martin didn't object to the posts, he gave me encouragement to raise awareness, as have most fellow Glaswegians.

The reason I lost interest in posting on GG was because rabbits, ducks and budgies kept turning up in all the chat threads. Sorry, but I couldn't see the connection to Glasgow and just didn't find it interesting, each to their own, I just chose not to post during this time.

Noo Betty huv ye goet a long toastin' fork? Ah really fancy a slice o' plain breid toasted oan the coal fire fur ma breakfast biggrin.gif laugh.gif
