I will add my thanks to Mr & Mrs Iminei and Fran for their hard work to make this happen.  I am truly grateful to people who have the tech skills for things like this as I have none.  If you ever need help with bovine, ovine or porcine midwifery just give me a call.
Life's too short for ironing.

Well today has gone brilliantly. 278 Posts in 60 Topics by 65 Members after 10 hours.

Everybody has been very kind with both words and donations / subscriptions. Thank you all. The most pleasing thing for me though is watching the boards fill up with posts.

Fran has been a complete star - not only has she completely re-vamped the site theme (it's been like living in a virtual "Changing Rooms"), she has written tech guides and posted in the forums. Thanks Fran!

Coincidentally today is the 30th anniversary of the day that Iminei & I met. So we're going out to eat (on a schoolday!) We will raise a glass to you all and check in later.
