Thanks, Lizzie, I had taken that on board.  

I'll agree I'm not a natural with small talk & discussing personal stuff.  However, it has never hindered me here....although it led to my downfall in the tuther place.

Btw, I've got Osteoarthritis at the base of my big toe.....it ain't arf givin me some gyp in this wet wever.

I'm puzzled  what is the criteria for being 'missed'? I've been boarding for more years than I care to remember and these strops, 'I'm leaving', 'please don't go' scenarios have always been a prominent feature......The cynic in me tells me that it's when an individual is in need of an ego massage.  . 

I'm sure if I never posted for six months, no one would even notice, even though I feel I've made as useful contribution to this forum as anyone.......I put this down to being an Aries, 'having the tendency of saying it as it is'.

Perhaps I was just unfortunate to incur the wrath of El Cid.

Many previous members are distributed between various breakaway boards, usually set-up following discontent of one form or another.

The first being 'Allotments 4 All'     www.allotments4all.co.uk/

Then, 'The Alternative Potting Shed' http://thepottingshed.proboards.com/

Next,  'Gardeners World Discussions'         http://gardenworld.proboards.com/

Then came the no longer operating 'Friendly Gardens'.

Of course ( the never to be forgotten)  'Fork Handles'.

"Friends shot off to various boards and I dithered a bit before coming on here after seeing genuine young gardeners needing advice"

I remember that dithering, Frank & was party to the persuasion.  Quite right, we did justice to 'Strictly' on the old beeb forum too.  

My first forum was The Archers, some 14 years ago and have boarded ever since.....although I'm not as prolific as some and thus amass a less post count.

I posted for a long time on the old beeb boards, same name......kind of self- destructed towards the end, so it was probably a blessing that it closed when it did.


 I moved here by invitation:
