An hour is ample, I think it is anyway. If folk forget to put somat or want to address a subsequent post they can always post again.

There isn't a 2 in 10 rule or owt like that to stop 2 folk using a thread as a chat room is there?

I don't beat, it's :horseflog when yer only little. I liked the weather forecast, nothing to add that others haven't except perhaps, do you have access to a top heavy lady presenter?
