I like to read the Forums, doesn't really matter what about, because they are all interesting. I just nearly made a fool of myself, was reading about the competitions and prizes and the congratulations which are always nice. As I was reading it said that the book club had some books called the Midwifes Confession. I clicked on the link and went to a page that doesn't exist anymore. Disappointed I went back to the page I was on Competitions and it was dated GNHQ) Thu 28-Jul-11 15:33:22 I hadn't even noticed, still went back to read the rest of WON ANYTHING. Well done everyone.

Hi audnay don't beat yourself up, I put a friend of mine on to GN and she replied to something that was on the bottom of the first page of a l-o-n-g thread and of course it made no sense when it appeared because it was at the end of the thread 4 pages later. She felt such a fool she tells me she has never posted since. smile - with apologies to "On Broadway"

There's a lot of enjoyment to be had - (all together now)

I think you should never worry about making a fool of yourself. If you do, it's soon

I love to just browse the Forums too, sometimes I write something, then delete it, because I think it is rather controversial, and I have a feeling I have upset one or two people in the past (observing their replies to my postings), so now I just read and enjoy, and in some cases laugh incredulously at things people know, and I had never even heard of, or thought about. Gransnet is certainly a concotion of lovely diverse people.

I've enjoyed your posts Printmiss I don't remember you being controversial and if you feel the urge to be so, then just go ahead, you have every right grin

Hi PRINTMISS, as I recall you are down on the Sussex coast.
You are most welcome to start a topic/contribute to a topic on the local forums for Worthing and/or Brighton & Hove grin

Also, thank you for writing a review for Amberley Museum on the listings page. It's a wonderfully interesting and informative piece, and just what we want on the local sites smile

Thanks for all the encouragement, I am not a shrinking violet! Happy to have controversial conversations with anyone, and can fight my corner, I do have strong opinions about some things, but have mellowed with old age, and so I will just continue to browse, add a word or two here and there, and enjoy the early morning catch-up. If you read my blog you will know I am very much involved with people with learning difficulties, and so could I ask if you see a sign saying 4Tea anywhere near you, you support the project. 4Tea is a celebration by United Response - the organisation which has cared for our son for the last 40 years, and it is their 40th year they are celebrating. They do a grand job country-wide, not only caring for people like my son, but lobbying for better understanding and conditions. Soap box now packed up.

Will look out for that PRINTMISS. smile
