WOW this site is terminally ill

Post by memor » Thu Nov 01, 2018 7:57 pm

I've been a member of this site since before 2000. Me and Big Jake were sparring partners and then friends.

The Ozzies came over to fill our ranks and learn what a real POM was all about.

Now this wonderful board is dying .

May I say thank you to Wizzy Clarke and Big Ry.

I'm sorry to say that this site is terminally ill.

I had an idea years ago but it fell on deaf ears , to have flyers telling people about the Sanddancers site drop them at Newcastle Airport.

What would it take for someone to stand and hand out leaflets to people flying around the world.

I'll try and come back from time to time see how your getting on.

BUT

If I miss you all It's been a pleasure and a privilege to chat and talk to you all

AND what is best of all.

It's been lot's of fun.

Good luck for the future

Terminally ill? Possibly, but I hope not. I often look in without signing in - just to see what is happening. Some of our most 'sparky' contributors have now died and I miss them. The topic could at times be controversial and tongues a little sharp, but it was often those sort of posts that kept going the longest. :) Perhaps people got a bit fed up with a contributor who seldom had anything sensible to say, but just had to say it anyway and it was always so bloody negative. It would be nice to see some of our ladies returning as they could keep a topic going. Where are you now Sherry, we miss you? :D

Yes you're quite right I was a bit negative .

BUT It was a good idea to hand out flyers to all those using Newcastle Airport. No one else thought of that idea. All the Expat Geordies flying in and out. Jimmy Wizz once had a counter on here to tell how many people used this site in a 24 hour period... I think the record was 34,000. Lets hope we can get some new blood.

When I look at and listen to our elected politicians, I thank The Lord that we have a Monarch and Charles as Heir - but then as I'm sure you knew what my response would be, a suitable retort will swiftly follow. :lol:

Let us hope so Andy, particularly if they follow the great example shown by our present Queen.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's security bill Paid by the tax payer for new home could reach £5million.

Unreal, all the emergency services being cut with their funding. A damn disgrace so it is.

My tax contribution's could have been put to better use.

£5 million...Read below

An “appalling” 200-year privatisation deal for armed forces family homes has cost taxpayers up to £4.2billion in its first 22 years.
The Ministry of Defence sold the married quarters to Annington Property Limited in 1996 and agreed to rent most back for up to two centuries.

Many of the houses are lying derelict, but may be needed for Service families in the future. Now that's a disgrace - so it is... :D

i read it for sure.

Got nothing to do with security of the silver spooned brigade.

Let them pay for their own security, they can well afford it.
