Hey hydro! not point shouting that loud, you'll wake up my kids!

Maybe people register only to keep in touch and have the possibility to post IF NECESSARY. That's all the difference. If they have nothing to say, some ppl say nothing. Others, like me (and plenty of other names on the forum) are happy to say "nothing" loud and clear, on over 270 postings!

Chatting is a way of life, keep at it!!

As for the number of postings, at no point could I criticize anyone for posting too much, on poinless subjects; I've done that 291 times so far, and I've just been caught up posting a sailing-related message. Oooops, I'm losing it !

Of course!! Take Jaffa cakes, for example: among the ingredients, it lists cocoa, sugar (3 times ), orange, natural flavourings, etc. All healthy products - can't go wrong with that! Besides, the box claims that there are only 46 calories in each cake.... As if I needed an excuse

Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

In my office, there was a scheme going. The fridge was always full of choccy bars and you paid 30p. All profits went to charity. You have to get there early if you wanted the Bounty bars!

Now the guy running the idea has been made redundant and there's no chocolate left  . Good for the diet, but no good for the mood

It was a fun event, anyone who can make it should come this year - its usually at the start of september or sumtime close!

The waters usually ok as long as it hasnt been raining heavy - the weekend of the games it was blowing a 7 with squalls of rain every hour or so! - I have only ever sailed a 4k once and that was in greece in a 5 - thought it was a really nice boat to sail, might of been helped by the warm water, sunshine and consistent breeze!!
