My subs expire today so thought i would post this to say hope you all had a good Christmas and to wish you all a happy new year,

My tree having been removed long ago and so i only used the boards anyway, i will delete the account altogether tomorrow (being from Yorkshire aka "tight git" i had to use every last day)

Kense Report 29 Dec 2012 10:41

Sorry to see you go Roy.

Do you have to delete your account? I think we will lose lots of useful advice if you do,

All the best.



+++DetEcTive+++ Report 29 Dec 2012 10:52

Thanks for all the advice when the site has problems. All the best in your next incarnation


KathleenBell Report 29 Dec 2012 10:55

I hope you're not really leaving Roy. Such a shame to see yet another "long standing" member go.

I think the site is a shadow of what it used to be but with continuous membership I think the fees are worth it even if I don't spend as much time on the site as I once did.

Please think again - you'll be missed!

Boo Hoo!! :-(

So sorry to hear you are leaving Porkie (I never call you Roy!!).........although you told us you were some time ago.

You will be sorely missed.

Thankyou for all the laughter and thankyou for all your help with computer problems and the help and advice you have given when experiencing problems with this site.

Not just invaluable to me.......but to a lot of other members too.

I wish you all good wishes for a very happy New Year and i do hope you will come back to us real soon.

You take care now..............Sniff, sob, hiccupp!!! :-\

I am so sorry you are leaving Porkie, I love that name my best Uncle (Jim) is also called Porkie, and for some reason I associate you with him <3 I hope someday you will come back to us. Take care, much love to you, and a very happy new year.

Good luck with what ever you do Roy :-D


JoyDean Report 29 Dec 2012 11:53

You said you would go, and you keep your word.

See you, Roy.


AnninGlos Report 29 Dec 2012 12:03

You must do whatever is best for you but, as you can see, you will be missed on here as all long term members are. Good luck and happiness in whatever you choose to do with your time.

before you go can you tell me why some HGVs kick up a tremendous amount of spray on the roads, and some very little, even though they look the same? are some doing something to prevent it do you know?

Best wishes for 2013. :-)


AnnCardiff Report 29 Dec 2012 12:17

C'mon now Roy, it's under a tenner - surely you can scrape that together :-D :-D

I will miss you very much, without you I'd have no emoticons and you seem to have such a wide knowledge of everything under the sun - you're part of the furniture FGS - you can't go!!! ;-) ;-)

Roy, what a shame to see another 'oldie' leaving, can't we club together and force your hand with a gift of membership, anything to stop you no longer being there for all those you have helped and befriended. I bet you will still look in and read the boards and then you will be spitting feathers you can't respond to something or other.

If all the adulation doesn't sway you, all the best for the New Year and any future plans you make.



PricklyHolly Report 29 Dec 2012 13:20

Aww, ........That bought a tear to my eye and a lump to my throat Jimbob!

Boo hoo. :-(


Wend Report 29 Dec 2012 13:23

Me too Prickles!

I was only trying to be cheerful, Porkie. My very best wishes to you and hope you return one day in the future.
