    Today, I have had an absolute blast: I've been moved to tears by the supportiveness of members; I have laughed like I haven't laughed in a long time; I've learned so much by reading older threads, current threads and I'm sure I will continue to do so. I've debated thoughts, bantered, got to understand people in ways I never thought.

    What a wonderful, fun, delightful, entertaining community!!

    A heartfelt "thank you!" from Mum x :yay:

                    Thank you, Armandii, shiney, MF, Woo and Sheal :dbgrtmb:

                    I've been on the internet for almost 19 years and I do have to say this is one of the most friendly, knowledgable, supportive, enjoyable and ... genuine(!) ... of places I have ever come across in all that time. (The only other one is an American site which is a subscription only site :heehee: )

                    It's a credit to whosoever "owns" it, the people who oversee/maintain it and, of course, the posters who stick within the ethos of the site.

                    So glad I found it ... even if it did take me 19 years :heehee:

                        Cherub, you may call me whatever you prefer and is comfortable for you (just so long as it's "polite" :heehee: )

                        Thinking about it now, perhaps I should have chosen a different user name; wonder if it too late to make a change? :dunno:

                        I thought "M" was in charge to the British Secret Service, Freddy. You could change your user name if you wish, Mum, but, to be honest, I see nothing wrong with it.:dunno::snork:

                            You must remember Geocities then, and Netscape Navigator, and clicking on awful bold blue links and then going for a cuppa while you wait for the page to load up.

                            We can arrange for you to have found it sooner if you like. GC has a communal Time Travelling Helicopter that we sometimes use for making careful, delicate tweaks to the past.

                              Geocities :runforhills:

                              Funnily enough, despite the 'age for a page' days plus the "requirement" for abbreviations due to the cost of being online and the need for speed, in those earlier times, the internet was a little less complicated or threatening as it is now.

                              Oh, do please book me a flight, for one! *goes to pack an overnight case*
