No I wasn't out last night. I looked in from time to time, but there was no one on so I didn't hang about. I'm trying to edit some of my photos at the moment and add them to my collection and that is taking quite a bit of time. I have numerous photos with no tags so its not easy to find a particular subject when looking for it. I often say no that I don't have a certain photo, then a couple of weeks later while looking for something else I come across it.

Just got back home, got my new shoes for work, bought my wife a new plant "a Ceramic Orchid" and yes it's real Phil, not ceramic. I could do with editing some more of my pictures, I've got thousands. I find most of them by luck so far.

THIS IS A LETTER I HAVE COME ACROSS TO OUR GREAT LEADER

Dear Mr Cameron
Please find below our suggestion for fixing the UK's economy.

Instead of giving billions of pounds to banks that will squander the money on lavish parties and unearned bonuses, use the following plan.

You can call it the Patriotic Retirement Plan:

There are about 10 million people over 50 in the work force.

Pay them £1 million each severance for early retirement with the following stipulations:

1) They MUST retire.
Ten million job openings - unemployment fixed

2) They MUST buy a new British car.
Ten million cars ordered - Car Industry fixed

3) They MUST either buy a house or pay off their mortgage -
Housing Crisis fixed

4) They MUST send their kids to school/college/university -
Crime rate fixed

5) They MUST buy £100 WORTH of alcohol/tobacco a week .....
And there's your money back in duty/tax etc

It can't get any easier than that!

P.S. If more money is needed, have all members of parliament pay back their falsely claimed expenses and second home allowances

If you think this would work, please forward to everyone you know.

Also………..
Let's put the pensioners in jail and the criminals in a nursing home.

This way the pensioners would have access to showers, hobbies and walks.

They'd receive unlimited free prescriptions, dental and medical treatment, wheel chairs etc and they'd receive money instead of paying it out.

They would have constant video monitoring, so they could be helped instantly, if they fell, or needed assistance.

Bedding would be washed twice a week, and all clothing would be ironed and returned to them.

A guard would check on them every 20 minutes and bring their meals and snacks to their cell.

They would have family visits in a suite built for that purpose.

They would have access to a library, weight room, spiritual counselling, pool and education.

Simple clothing, shoes, slippers, PJ's and legal aid would be free, on request.

Private, secure rooms for all, with an exercise outdoor yard, with gardens.

Each senior could have a PC a TV radio and daily phone calls.

There would be a board of directors to hear complaints, and the guards would have a code of conduct that would be strictly adhered to.

The criminals would get cold food, be left all alone and unsupervised. Lights off at 8pm, and showers once a week. Live in a tiny room and pay £600.00 per week and have no hope of ever getting out.

Think about this (more points of contention):

COWS
Is it just me, or does anyone else find it amazing that during the mad cow epidemic our government could track a single cow, born in Appleby almost three years ago, right to the stall where she slept in the county of Cumbria?

And, they even tracked her calves to their stalls. But they are unable to locate 125,000 illegal immigrants wandering around our country. Maybe we should give each of them a cow.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Also;
Think about this ... If you don't want to forward this for fear of offending someone -- YOU ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM! It is time for us grumpy old folk of Britain to speak up!

SB

I think you will find on looking around the web that a few forums suffer much the same problem at weekend during the summer. People like to get out and about at weekends after being stuck in a boring job all week. I have noted that Friday night seems to be an exceptionally bad night for forums. Without a doubt I would have been down the pub from opening time myself at one time.

Knowing none of this solves the problem of lack of members, this has to be down to the slow intake of new members. Other forums even those that are only half as good as this forum can get five or six new members a day every day. We obviously are not getting the number of guests that other forums get, after all a certain percentage of guests do sign up. If we can solve this problem then we will have cracked it.

Lets face it when our members come on site and find there is no one here they log straight back off and go to other sites. With more members there is more chance of finding someone on site to chat to.

Morning All,

Hi Den, it has a similar look to pottery that was coming out of Cornwall in the 50's & 60's. Mind you it also looks a little Italian, I suppose they all copied each other if a style became popular.

Denise

Yes I know some Cornishware can demand big money especially Troika, but I must be old fashioned because I like the old classical designs. I like a pot to look like a pot and not a box of kippers.

You're right of cours Phil, I would never want my wife to put flowers in a box of kippers. [Big Laugh]
