    Coffee outside in the sunshine, in between ‘Newark’ sessions.

    Have been on for an hour and a half or so and will get back on again soon.

    We need to get some more West Coast guys on....join in!

    And Yanks in general! We're getting a good Brit turnout.

    Meetings due to end midnight UK time but I'll be hitting sack before then plus my phone/camera/mic is using power faster than I charge it. I'll leave the session open - it may continue as long as there are participants or it may shut down at midnight. I'm unable to edit the end time.

    Great to talk with you all - been a great alternative to the real thing! :thumbup::D/

    Well I had a fun time today. It was nice putting a face and voice to a few you. Sorry I couldn’t stay longer but I have a sick dog I needed to take care of and Zoom eats battery power on my iPad very quickly. I try and join again next time.

    Well I am up! Thats about all that can ba said lol. I feel like a fully laden brick lorry has hit me. I am not sure there is a muscle or bone not hurting lol. WORTH every ache though. It was so good to chat to friends and kindred spirits. So today is max dosage of painkillers (morphine is such a nice thing lol). and rest. Trouble is I have a taste for doing some fettling :) Ah well it will have to wait.
    Garry/Gareth, I blame you for getting me interested in lamps again! Anne said she will send you the bill! lol
    Doc please remember that link to sweet brides website.
