Oops, mine is still sitting on dining table.  As a genealogist I appreciate finding my ancestors on past census returns BUT this one is extremely intrusive in my opinion. 

Also considering it's 'allegedly' to help with planning local resources over the next 10 years some of the questions are dubious.   In addition how come from my brief scan of the questions the only one you have an option to NOT answer is regarding religion.    How does knowing the name of the company I work for and my position within the company help with future planning?  

 

Ok I'm shutting up now cos otherwise going to get barred for VERY inappropriate language.

Tracey, I think I'd let you get away with 'footling' at the very least...

I did mine on-line the day it arrived and I did find it frustrating when it came to the employment section.  It is, however done now, so have put it out of my mind.

I'll try that again!

Ha!  I'm sure you have an imagination... and as for the second bit, if I don't do things as they arrive, they probably won't get done at all.

I'll try that again!

That is my choice for shocked too.  big_laugh

Now then, you've managed to do the quote thing properly but I can't seem to do so. Just a minor glitch, I hope.

I'll try that again!

Click your cursor about 1/4" below quoted section and then it should work.

Yes, the line below the quote seems to have been done away with. I will check for new settings in this version that may restore it. I just use the Down arrow twice. It seems like there is an invisible line.

Never knowingly underfed
