Good Morning Michael, Did you by any chance send me a PM yesterday either during the day or about 7.00 last night. With this new system of GR's it is impossible to check on peoples names and know who they are, unless they have a quirky name, then you know instantly who they are.
Enjoy your car boot. I'm off visiting a garden this afternoon for Cancer Charities.
Please come back to me as I am very curious.

Sure Michael will be on later to answer your query Julia.

Well that was an unusual greyhound meet! Walked with only A.N. Other and he has a lurcher. No idea why no one else came - weather was OK. Melody and I enjoyed it anyway.

Sorry Julia - not me.
What made you think it was ?

Not sure what you mean by new PM system, mine doesn't seem to have changed.
Hope you find your mystery emailer


Dozey Report 18 Jul 2010 18:06

Bit of a mystery to me too this new message system. Sylvia told me on one thread by clicking on the member's name you get a short profile but doesn't seem to work for me.


Julia Report 18 Jul 2010 18:10

Thanks Michael, blessed if I know who it was. Just made me think of you. Oh it was not rude or cheeky, just someone trying to be helpful
Jeaniealogist, Yes on some you get a persons real name and their age, but not all.
Thanks to both

Oh I clicked on something, it came up that the sender was 86yrs old so you automatically thought it was me .
.......well th-ank-ewe !!


Dozey Report 18 Jul 2010 22:56

Well don't be shy Michael. How old are you then?:-)))

Good Morning Michael*, no I was not picking on the aged (or infirm), as I too belong to this group, and have me bus pass to prove it.
It was that the PM and the information came out of the blue, despite my already having access to it. I naturally thought of yourself, and your kindheartedness.
Have a nice to now.LOL

Dont' bother with the bus pass myself - prefer my car but in the same group of course Julia.

No use coming the old flattery trick now Julia....

I agree Jeanie ... not keen on the buses.
having to listen to kids screaming, teenagers swearing and announcing all their tittle-tattle to all and sundry at the top of their voices whilst 4 ipods blur out competing tunes ( term used loosely) is a treat I can live without............. oh and then there's the moaning old folk (!)


Cynthia Report 19 Jul 2010 13:43

Hi Julia, excuse me for butting in on this, but if you hover your mouse over Michael*'s name, his membership number will show on the bottom bar. If you do the same on the Michael who pm'd you, it will show his number too. Go to Advanced search on the left, put in the name Michael and you will get anyone with that name and the posts they have made. If you hover over them, you may be able to pick up which Michael it was who posted you and things may fall into place.

Really sorry if you have already tried this, but just thought it may be helpful. Regards, Cx

[I have to do this all the time to sort out some of the queries which come my way after I have sent out my how to find and respond message!!] :))


Julia Report 19 Jul 2010 14:19

Hi Cynthia, and thanks also for the PM. I have his surname, just doesn't ring a bell. Havn't tried the method you have mentioned. Will have a go.
Actually, I'll PM you. His surname may be familiar to you.

Dozey Report 19 Jul 2010 15:41

I do hope you're not including me in the moaning old folk Michael! Although I will admit I like to get things off my chest from time to time:-)))

Hi Cynthia - I dread to think how many you've got in your Inbox. No offence to you Julia. Just thinking about all the helpful PMs Cynthia sends out to the novices.


Dozey Report 19 Jul 2010 19:26

Off to watch the box.


Cynthia Report 19 Jul 2010 19:31

Well Jeanie, at the last count.....402 pages of contacts with 20 contacts on each page!! Cx
