I'm going to have to confess - I have also left a certain large Scottish Sailing Forum due to the volume of promotions and postings that pushed other vital topics like the Inversnecky Café sandwich board postings and cat café news.

Re: Shetland Sailing Mysteries by Marsali Taylor.

Typical - I bring book 5 home and then buy all the other online! BTW the author has a column in PBO.

Currently reading book 3.

The trouble is I have absolutely no knowledge of HTML or what a Google backlink is or does. My experience of Cloud storage is when it rains and data leaks away.

I may have posted too soon. Rumours of retirement freezes and mutiny abound now.

Merry Christmas to my husband, Mr Mullins - yes the first wedding between forumites!

I'm trying to boost my posts up to 500 in the hope that Nick will grant me Admiral status at 500 (I'd like to be Admiral of the Pink).
