  1. It's just easing off here now in south-central Norfolk, Mark, so let's hope that you can all get out!
  2. Definitely "YES", Jean. Unfortunately there are those who will bang on about freedom of speech, etc. if the Mods choose to move the topic there.
  3. Katie, you are so, so right! Looking through the posts above has made my morning!
  4. Hear! Hear! Well said, Vaughan, and I heartily agree with your well expressed sentiments.
  5. Have you ever met Charlie, Grace? I think knickers in a twist would be a minor problem for this fine figure of manhood! John
  6. A warm "Welcome Aboard" the good ship NBN, Drifter40!
  7. Bruce Hi and so good to hear from you again after 8 years or so! We are so pleased that Friday Girl has found such a good home. Just a passing thought but she will go under Wroxham at 6ft 6ins on the gauge and I once took her through at 6ft 3ins following the pilot in another Alpha 35. (This compares with BB's plating when we bought her as 6ft 10ins minimum!). I'm not too sure that I'd do that again! Any questions and I put my mobile number in a note to you yesterday with a couple of spare keys I just found. Please feel free to call any time between 08 - 23 but late mornings are most likely to find me.
  8. Thank you all very much, peeps, your kind words mean a lot. My second knee replacement operation comes on (2 months now) and we are wondering where next we'll go for more relaxation when I'm fully mobile again. The new owners are not forum members to my knowledge, Neil, but I've sent them an NBN business card!
  9. Friday Girl will be out with her new owners this weekend; so if you see her please give a wave as you go by!
  10. Where on Earth would they all moor downstream of the bridge?
  11. Mine has that problem, John, but in its case it's the G&T!
  12. Vanessa, Hi. I saw this new nest box on another thread somewhere and I hope that the hawks will appreciate it . What time of day did you see the bird, please?
  13. I've stopped coming onto the forum at night-time since I stepped down as a Mod (when I felt that I had an obligation to do so) and so I'm quite flabbergasted by the last few pages which I've just read. I think that it's not so much to do with a glass or two but possibly the after effects of the day's adrenaline and aggravation coming into play. That coupled with perhaps being somewhat tired can lead one to typing words that one wouldn't probably use in direct conversation. A Moderator is faced with a very difficult decision; to do nothing and be criticised or to hide a post and then immediately be pilloried for being over-zealous and denying free speech.
  14. My new alloy and plastic knees shouldn't have that problem!
  15. Wise words from John and Steve indeed. I sincerely hope that you read them, Richard, and that we hear from you again.
  16. How appalling, Helen, a Force 12 storm is unbelievably immense in its ferocity. We've been out in a F11 (on a 75,000 ton liner) and that was scary enough. Our total sympathy to all those involved.
  17. Aching would best describe it, thank you, Charlie!
  18. With all our expert engineers/DIYers I wondered if anyone would like to try this at the Spring Gathering? Log cooker.mp4
  19. I totally agree with the sentiments posted above, Richard. Your proposed liveaboard thread would have been very interesting, to say the least, to lots of us. Perhaps you may reconsider, please? CC, I thought that Richard left the NBF a long time ago? This place will certainly be poorer!
