I'll give you some extra advice never share a sheep with squid he doesn't send them back
For the avoidance of doubt and for the benefit of my wife, not everything I may say here will be absolutely true I may on ocassion embellish a little for effect.
That said when it comes to motorbikes, I like to ride side saddle with a nice frock

There will never be enough in the pot, its an ongoing loot drinking experience on the net.

Hi Everyone
Sorry I didn't get on the forum yesterday to respond to questions ..... bit of a busy day to say the very least.

Anyway, GOOD NEWS !

Thanks to everyone's generosity, we have cleared the debt and I have paid the remainder of what we owed.

What's more, we still have £23 in the kitty.
Rather than stick that behind Sam's Bar for a forum knees-up, it can be the start of the money we will need to sort out some new hosting for the future and to get us in a position where we have the funds available for the next period in advance.

So many thanks to everyone for getting our heads back above water and keep chipping in as and when (or even better, bung in a little each month if you can afford to)
As plans for what we will do in the future take shape and costs become understood, I'll let you know what's needed and probably stick up a new appeal.
Anyway, the commitment shown by the forum to sorting this out suggests that there is still plenty of life left and things look good going forward.

Cheers

Yes BG, there are ..... but they're just not as good

Not going anywhere near a bus - last time I used one I nearly ended up on the floor when the driver slapped the brakes on - I'd be safer going back to bikes!
