Kind regards and greetings from “old” forum members

Unread postby Grantmissy » Fri Dec 06, 2013 9:00 am

The forum celebrates nine years of existence this year and has a forum membership of more than 26 000. Over the years many forum members have joined the forum and participated (s) according to personal preferences and circumstances. Some forum members may not post often anymore or not at all but still visits the forum from time to time. Perhaps there are some of the ‘old” or “new” forum members, who might want to take a few moments just to say :yaya:.

Note: In this case “old” does not relate to human age :) but to forum age that is from 2004 onwards.

I'll set the ball rolling :roll:

:think:

Ah yes - I haven't been around for a long time, as my health makes it very hard for me to visit SA.

Today's sad news of the death of Madiba last night prompted me to pop in and say Hi.

So.......... Hi 8)
Cheers, Simon

:yaya: Not by any means 'disengaged' - just had a lot of issues and distractions (plus trouble with computer and WiFi connection for tablet).
Tv has had constant programmes about Mandela since news broke last night (there's one on just now)and I too share the sorrow of my friends in South Africa.
