sorry people didn't mean to offend anyone with my post on medical procedures, so will keep all my posts in check, very windy here the day but at least the sun is shining and the air feels fresh, after the heatwave we went throughI vowed not to complain about cold weather so today I have to p[lant my trees as I didn't get to do it on Friday.
Melody
Stuarty, I presume that it is me that you refer to in your last post since I was the only anonymous member who posted recently. If you are unhappy with anything on these boards can I suggest that you contact Martin and refrain from making pointed remarks in topics. It makes for an unhappy situation and this topic is famed for it's cordiality.
Melody
Sorry Ria, I never noticed your post there. How ye doing? Hope things go well for you nothing worse than feeling below par. wub.gif You've never offended me in all these years so I don't think you'll start now. smile.gif
Gemini
hi Melody so nice to hear from you, I am feeling just fine, how about you?, I am just starting to getting back into the swing of things again here on the board, wasn't on too much there for awhile and it looks like I will be off and on again with all the running I have to do between now and the end of the year, so what have you been up to, I tried to get caught up but was way too much that I had missed, so more or less starting fresh . biggrin.gif
Melody
I'm fine thanks Ria, I don't think you've missed much on the boards it's not so much fun as it was in the old days. sad.gif Very few of the old members come on now. We can only hope that it picks up again.
I went out with Betty and Angela one afternoon for lunch it was lovely, we enjoyed it ,such lovely company. It's getting darker and darker here they promised us thunder today if so ah'll be under the bed. laugh.gif
stuarty
A never mentioned nobody in my post and thats that but if it was you ,thank you as I think the topic idea is a good thing ,and am off to start one up just please dont be offended by it anyone as it may save lives huggles stuarty wub.gif

Hi Stuarty,

I have tried to find the "anonymous" post alluded to but since I am def. compt. challenged I may have missed it. My own opinion is that is a great idea for you to start a topic dealing with delicate medical issues, since that would give any of our group (within MARTIN"S boundaries) freedom to discuss a lot of personal stuff which up until now, has mainly been done via PM etc. Those of us that have been there and done that tend to correspond on a PM basis. As far as I can see, dealing with these issues, if you (being the impersonal but plural-as in all of us) want to talk one on one with those who understand the situation perhaps after general comments it might be more comfortable to discuss this in private? Just my opinion. Some of our friends have alluded to health issues in a very delicate way, indeed it seems to me that we have had to pry info. from our friends about their situation. Thankfully, most of them seem to be doing OKplus. Some of them are doing wonder for others who are having health difficulties.

Hope all is well with you and yours. biggrin.gif

Hello all,

Oh gonna no start the doom and gloom death deciple stuff in here a really canny go it.
stuarty
Thanks for the feed back and all input wellcome ,as I got the idea from when wee mags said it in the post above about puttin a topic in ,and a thought why not as it might help sombody and a wasnt gettin at onybody when a put in capitals a was just making it to be noticed as it is a subject that is to some taste and not others no more no less once again thanks smile.gif Gallusbisom
Melody
No Angela we shall keep this the happy place it always has been hopefully. smile.gif

please read above
betty2
.

Coulld,nt get on here all day Lee took over the pc the iggest part of the day

Dont like it when ma wee room is in disarray wink.gif re. health problems starting a topic re. this seems a good idea, I,m not one for discussing personal matters on threads This has always been a place for goodnatured bletherin, and has lasted all this time because of that. Members have stated such in many postings on here

As re. the issue of anonimity, "what is the issue" I do so often but by posting its a recognised fact that I,m on. I dont have a nameplate on my door at home but everyone knows I live there and never have any problems with mail. So the GPO. dont have an issue with that so why should anyone on here?
Why is it these boards no longer have the harmony and fun as of old? So lets just get back to keepin this place the nice wee place it has always been iI have met many friends over the yeats through this room and wouldnt like to see them falling away You know whit there have been ones on here who have tried to demobilise this topic , "is this another sad tactic to try to do so again"? Another opinion of mine and I,m entitled to that

Hello bingo punters biggrin.gif
