We'll meet again
Don't know where
Don't know when
But I know we'll meet again
Some sunny day
Keep smiling through
Just like you always do
'Till the blue skies
Drive the dark clouds far away

So, will you please say hello
To the folks that I know
Tell them I won't be long
They'll be happy to know
That as you saw me go
I was singing this song

We'll meet again
Don't know where
Don't know when
But I know we'll meet again
Some sunny day

We'll meet again
Don't know where
Don't know when
But I know we'll meet again
Some sunny day
Keep smiling through
Just like you always do
'Till the blue skies
Drive the dark clouds far away

So, will you please say hello
To the folks that I know
Tell them I won't be long
They'll be happy to know
That as you saw me go
I was singing this song

We'll meet again
Don't know where
Don't know when
But I know we'll meet again
Some sunny day...

Roy

As another person that lives in Yorkshire I am asking you NOT to leave as there aren't many of us in Yorkshire.

Plus you are a mine of information that is what we need on the boards and also you say it as it is..

Please reconsider as I know you will be missed.

If you don't stay..

A very Happy,Healthy amd Properous 2013. :-)

Roy another good reason you might not want to delete your account altogether is that you will lose your 'contacts' and you never know you might want to contact one of them again...either for them to help you, or you to help them ;-)

Right Roy !
I've read back , you've said it in a nutshell, quote :-

'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)'

You only use the boards anyway ! GOOD !!

Well that is where your wealth of knowledge on a huge range of topics ,( IT probs [for one ]..shouts of ask Porkie Pie are heard ) your stories , humour ,sarcasm ;-) whit and empathy are put to use ,
I for one don't want to loose that .
Many others have said what such an important input you make to the boards,so if that's all you use why go ? .....£10 in the pot from me.

So common 'tight git' and let's see you posting tomorrow.
Roy has not left the building ...yet.
