Morning! - lovely day! 

So sorry to hear your news Busy - well done for carrying on with the garden opening. I'm sure it was the last thing you wanted to do after such a shock.

Hope the planning goes well Dove. On a positive note about having to do it at this time of year - lots of journeys past Wootens... 

Office for me but only till lunch time. Planted some mange tout, peas, salad plants and beetroot yesterday. Today I'll see if some of the herbs and chard are big enough to go in and direct sow a few more. 

Love this time of year

Landlubber - page numbes at both top & bottom of the screen are definitely under consideration as is the possibilty of a 'Go To Page....' box

I believe they are not at the top of the list of fixes but the team know we would like them.

Meanwhile there is the short term fix mentioned by Chicky.

Can I also welcome you officially to the 'Reading Threads Backwards Club' - there are a few members already & only yesterday I thought it was only me 

I won't be using the forum for a while

You are obviously in touch with RB so can I suggest the following:

1) She tries to access the website using Safari rather than any other browser

2) If that doesn't work she tries completely closing Safari on the iPad and then trying again 

3) If that doesn't work completely powering down the iPad then trying again

4) If that doesn't work - check for updates for both Safari and the iPad operating system - download as necessary

5) If that doesn't work post a link on her behalf on this thread and Daniel will advise her to log into a web site so they can check various settings for her

NB - In the case of both 2 and 3 above she need to completely close / shut things down - not just put them into standby mode as we usually do.

If she doesn't know how to do that come back to me

Hope we can get her sorted

Is it a little sad of me to be so happy that so many of you are sounding so much more positive about sticking with the forum? I would really miss you all if you weren't here 

I think Daniel has done absolutely the best PR job possible by just being around this weekend. He didn't have to give up his free time on one of the best weekends of the year but, the fact that he did gives me a lot of confidence in the team's good intentions.

Pleased to hear BL's day went well and I've no idea how DD could even contemplate opening her door to 9 strangers at such short notice - I'm not even sure I could do it at long notice. B&B owner would definitely be my personal job from hell. Still, I'm glad some people seem to really enjoy doing it so I have somewhere to stay on my jollies 

Welcome back Frank - we missed you - hope you will pop in again 

And finally - what are you all like talking about alcofrolic drinks at this hour? Still 22 minutes till 6pm - my cut off time. Oooh - only 20 now - goodie.
