I am back to work next week, so I won't be available.

But I hope someone will be able to make a report of the goings on! big_laugh

If you can't be a shining example, be a terrible warning!

If it on for next week, great please count me in but please someone remind me, my memory has decreased in direct inverse proportion to my waistline.

I have reached an age where my train of thought often leaves the station without me...

Not been on these calls, but can I recommend VOIPSTUNT, a friend set it up for us on our laptop for us ringing son in Oz. It's pretty straighforward, you have to sing up to it, and credit it with a minimum of £10, but then calls to most destinations cost you 5c (it's in Euros) for as long as you like (up to an hour I think). It costs us 15c a minute to call Dave in Oz on his mobile. It's a bit of an odd set up, you have to ring thru your computer, which then rings you phone - you pick up your phone and it then rings your chosen destination - if anyone wants more details let me know. Did I sound like a saleswoman for VOIP - sorry

For those of us with so much to do, we need reminders - perhaps someone with a good memory can help us all to remember!

Volunteer anyone?

"How do you spell 'Love'?" (Piglet). 

"You don't spell it, you feel it" (Pooh).

 'A hug,' said Pooh 'is always the right size!'

Then why don't you do it tonight?  That way you won't need to remember for very long!  big_laugh

I'll try that again!
