NanaSue .....

You are beyond belief .... you just cannot resist ......

when will you cease with the emotive comments about "abuse and attacks" that you, and only you, perceive on these boards -

do you believe it is written often enough, others will believe it?

Well I'll keep posting any news I find interesting. You can't please everybody and I have not intention of trying.

There is hardly anything posted on the boards and so many people have left. They read all the nasty things and attacks on some individuals which turns them off.

OP - Opening or Original Post (ie, the first post in a thread) or Original Poster - the person starting the thread.

Gins ....
What's an OP?
These type of abbreviations can be hard work for someone like me.

After being off GR for nearly a year, the boards do seem a lot quieter.

There seems to be a lot more random threads about tv programs people are watching etc, than people asking for help with aspects of hunting relatives :)

Gins you are one of the more interesting posters, as are most of the contributors to this thread, hope noone stops posting otherwise there will be nothing to read!!!!!!!

Yoooohoooo, Gins - time you were up and about :-D

On here I'm TootyFruity or Toots. The same in some pms. Those members I like know my real name and when I communicate with them off boards I sign my first name.

Back to topic

I'm not conceited enough to initiate loads of threads on inane subjects on the off chance that someone may be interested in what I have to say. ;-)

jax .................

I'm not at all fond of "Sylv" ..........................

possibly because the first person who shortened my name to that was someone I did not like ;-)

covers Gins with a throw so she won't get cold in the early morning hours, and tip toes out



Persephone Report 16 Jun 2013 03:05

There is one in every school Jax... our Maths mistress insisted on calling all of us by our surnames... sounded like we were in the army... except for Annette who she insisted on calling Anne.... Her surname was Litherland so not hard to say...

and Agnes was Agnes because the teacher did one hiccough at saying her surname Schwalger and we laughed.

Tiptoes out quietly... I can hear Gins snoring. I always dares Gins... always...



jax Report 16 Jun 2013 02:47

My mums name is Sylvia and she hates it so she is Sylv or sometimes Sylvie...but I call her mum, she doesn't mind that :-D

I don't like my name nor does my I am Jax...never my full name, only doctors or people like that call me by that.

I remember when at school one particular teacher insisted on calling everyone by their full girl her name was Jill.....this teacher would not have it and kept calling her Jillian :-D


Gins Report 16 Jun 2013 02:17

Yup.....very hard work, for me!

I remembers 'that' Sylvia' :-0


SylviaInCanada Report 16 Jun 2013 02:11

hard work thinking, is it?????



SylviaInCanada Report 16 Jun 2013 02:09

Off topic, I know .................

may I just say ...................

I do not actually like being called SylviaInCanada

that is NOT my name

it is my Board name, adopted in an attempt to separate myself from another Sylvia who was on the Boards many years ago, and who was causing trouble back around 2004/5

I got tired of signing all my posts Sylvia (in Canada) in order to get the separate identity and not be accused of causing trouble on what was then the equivalent of General Chat. That was despite the fact that I never ventured near that Board at that time.

Thank you
