Is there room for another refugee?

Postby Rowana » Fri Feb 08, 2008 5:08 pm

I have decided that I am getting a bit fed up of "another place", and have been using it less and less of late.

I haven't resigned (yet), but I was wondering if there was room for an East Coast refugee hereabouts?

Cheers
Jim

Welcome aboard Jim.

The pace of life is a little slower here, and quite honestly we are not seeking to take on YBW's mantle - in fact most people on here also post on Scuttlebutt. Now you have a choice :-)

It is nice to see the place starting to get a bit busier though - it has been going for eight years now, with a hiccup five and a half years ago.

Who knows, another eight years and perhaps Land Rover will be paying me a fortune to put annoying pop-up ads on here . . .

Well, one is East coast of England, and the other is East coast of Scotland, so that's OK

Isn't it?

Now there's a thought :lol:

However , I don't suppose that now would be a good time to mention that my nationality is Welsh , would it ? :lol:

Surrounded by Scottish and English , living on the East coast , and then both teams get totally stuffed by Wales in the rugby :lol:

So this is the "other place" oft referred to over in the "other place". What's the gig guys? Is it better here - less flammable for example? Does the forum software work better? Is this the gentlemen's club or the speakeasy?

It's a tad quieter & more relaxed, you may miss the excitement tho' :D

Why not try something a little controversial & see what happens? :lol: :lol: :lol:

And another East Coaster - on the East coast of IoM ;)

Do we have any volunteers for the East coast of Wales?
