My pennyworth...


If I buy an item from a online trader, I always make a point of emailing them and saying 'thank  you' for good service, or something more suitable for bad service. I guess I'm lucky, I've only had to chastise one online shop this year, and that matter was resolved in two emails.


Saves filling up the 'chit chat' side of the forum...

Good stuff, but to get back to Bryan's original post... The Last Post always puts me in mind of that wonderful line from the hymn "Sunset and evening star":

And may there be no moaning at the bar when I put out to sea.

I've done it all my life;
It makes the peas taste funny,
But it keeps 'em on the knife.

I think it should be 'Moaning OF the bar' - he wasn't thinking of the pub he left behind!  ok2

That's precisely the kind of nitpicking that starts these arguments!

But I'm joking, Colin.

It is time for us all to make an effort to be more tolerant of our fellow members, after all we have no idea when the "last post" will sound for anyone of us. Using bully tactics serves no useful purpose, the best post on here has been the poem by Dave (Norseman)just my opinion, Mick B.
