Crikey! Well spotted, Michelle. I would never have guessed.

I think the fun bits are the glue that hold us all together, and the advice and tips are a bonus that we all appreciate

Best not to go there...but many of the hours are very late at night, so we provide a wondrous service to insomniacs worldwide.cool

Kateuk makes things at http://www.etsy.com/shop/finkstuff and sometimes she does this too http://www54paintings.blogspot.com/ and also this http://finkstuff.weebly.com/

LOL  big_laugh @ you guys.

Please direct any litigation at the site owner. tongue tardis

I will say that i am just the hired help, who has given you loads of inadvertent belly laughs - which, as medical science has long since shown, has already provided you with extended life expectancy and probably (if Carlsberg owned this site) better health and happiness! cheers

Not to be a tattle-tale, but you may have the right of it Kate about insomniacs. yawn

Since I'm 8 hours behind the majority of you all, I get to see who is up and about during what would be an ungodly hour. 

You would be surprised who is hanging around at midnight!

Hmmm Danny?

Can I make a confession ¦¦ if it is really, really late, I just have a look-in (not 'logged-in'), and maybe read a bit,      and a couple of evenings ago " it was about 01.30, and yes, Danny, you were still logged-in, but I was also in the background.

But then, sometimes, I just can't sleep " and what else is there to do, but join friends on our favourite website?

I can see that "book reading" emoticon, BS.

Re late night forum-ing, maybe sometimes I do stay up way too late. Also, I extended the timeout from 20 to 45 minutes so that red items in the dropdown list would not disappear so quickly. It does mean that people who have left their computers without logging out will still show as online for 45 minutes.

I know I shouldn't be tisking at the late-night folks, I love to have your company!

Its just the worry wart in me, thats all. roll_eyes

I just hope the reason for the late night is a little insomina, too wound up to sleep, or getting caught up, and not something bad.sorry
