I've been trying to alter my ego for a long time but keep getting 'me goy' which might be true but is lousy grammatically
Content with little but a little more would be nice.

Isn't that what the Hobbies and Interests section is for,
And I think you would find quite a bit of information on members if you went through their posting history,


Just had a look at some of your excellent photographs Coastal. You have a lot in common with Bill Double whose account is https://www.flickr.com/photos/bills_doubl. I also miss seeing CC Bird photographs.

It puzzles why people feel that others are not 'opening up '.
I for one do not 'open up' to any strangers and that is exactly what we all are to one another.
Beannie used to get really worried if she thought others were not getting on .. I would tell her that they are all just names on a screen ..
I would like to think that I get on with most people on here .There are a few that I could sit over a drink and chat /laugh with .. That is life I guess .. Instant attraction .. I am not in any clique.
Don't think of a caterpillar dying..Think of a butterfly living.

Thanks for the comment Hugh, I love taking pictures and everyone should have a hobby of some sort.

I would love you to display a few of your pics on here Coastal to brighten the forum up. It could encourage other members to do the same. BD use to do a topic out and about which I found interesting.


Yes out for a game tomorrow morning Crabbyob up at the crack of sparrows to give me time to walk Roxy before heading for the golf course. Teeing off 0800 or there abouts.

Maybe he wants to get a round in before the bar opens  ;D

And there are some pics (mostly mine) on the My Favourite Locations thread in the Photography Board.

Its a club members competition they have tee times from 0756 to 0830. We draw a number out of a bag which tells you what time, and who you are playing with.


Must have a look at your pics tomorrow Coastal. What I have seen so far you have a good eye for a picture. In the days of film I did a lot of work with black and white and colour. In those days it was quite easy to sell a good picture. 8 by 10 inch was the size they wanted and it wasn't cheap getting prints. With black and white picture a knowledge of filters was required. Yellow filter darkened a blue sky to make white clouds stand out and made the picture more interesting.


Off to bed now must get my 8 hours in, good night all.

I think reticence is a great British characteristic; on-line it seems to be a sensible one.  Most forums adapt and change to suit the current membership I find.  I doubt that people can be persuaded to post on subjects they are not interested in.  I don't know exactly how long PF has been going but it seems to have pottered on for some years so I imagine it will continue to do so.

This board only has around 20 regular posters. More than one has bid adieu recently and although I've seen some new userids they just seem to dip their toes for a short while and then are no longer seen. I'm not sure what sort of numbers a board needs to continue but I'd put 20 at the low end of healthy.

When I first joined there was only two regular posters Ivanhoe and Papa both very left wing Labour supporter. The forum as had many ups and downs since then fortyone.

I like the way PF is..It seems much less anonymous than many and a small number makes it easier to remember who everybody is. Bear in mind 41 that this site was set up for other than commercial reasons.

It can feel a bit lonely here sometimes, just saying  ;D
