I was thinking of staying on 999 and see how long i could keep my opinions to myself but failed miserably. As it seems to be a WUS tradition to mark this modest milestone i would like to thank the forum and members from across all borders of society -many of whom i regard as anonymous friends [probably the best kind] for the many lively and informative hours i enjoy here. and please excuse my humour [or lack of it ] which often falls short of its mark but i hope is never regarded as malicious .One aspect i have learned on here is respect for others' opinions , often misguided of course ! goes a long way to make one's stay on here much more enjoyable.
Thankyou all again, Peter
