Hello just thought i would say Hi ,I have been visiting the site for a while to gather info on all things chicken ,so i would like to say thanks and keep up the good work WellDone.Its only taken me a few months to figure out how to register Steambut i have managed it (well i have if anyone reads this ),As you have probably realised i am not overly computer literateDoh .we have recently adopted 3 bantam hens and its been a sharp learning curve for us, and the dog ,so thanks to all for the peace of mind with the girls (yes they have names and are becoming part of the family) ,perhaps more on that later,TTFN

ps i like these gizmos at the bottom that only took me half an hour to figure out what they were about,Wink.

Welcome, MOS, and thank you for taking the plunge and joining up. Although you must be prepared for the most ridiculous ribbings. But, as a man who has discovered the joys of our vast array of emoticons (blame the one named Brightspark, who is our scavenger of emoticons) - you may survive on this forum!

I am only joking. Big_Laugh

Thanks, G. we hope that you enjoy it all.

Erm, excuse me, Danny, I thought you said I was CES - Chief Emoticon Scout - and suddenly I'm a scavenger.

You see MOS, what I have to put up with??????  Steam

Welcome, MOS, to our fun, friendly, informative (agree with Danast) and quite possibly, addictive forum ........Whistle

Here, have one of these Medicine

You'll love it .. Ok

Hello MOS - I'm new here too and also experienced a few hiccups getting here - not a good idea to delete your password email BEFORE you change it to something you have half a chance of remembering when you relog on DohRoll_EyesLaugh

A BIG welcome Mos!  I hope you'll be a frequent poster, Danny feels a little under-represented in the number of male contributors.  Cheers

I'll try that again!

Years ago when I had some office work to do with part of my job I was the most computer literate in the office - somehow it has all overtaken me since thenEmbarassed

I love the notion of microadjustment with a 2lb lump hammer, MOS Big_Laugh

It reminds me of the time, a long time ago now, when I installed some kit at the Irish Steel plant on a small island in the estuary of the river Lee in Cork harbour. The unions were really strong and the most vociferous were the craftsmen. You could always recognise craftsmen because they carried a lump hammer on their belts. Doh

I am like you, Rosie. It has passed me by in a way. I remember the days when you could open the bonnet of a Ford Escort and carry out most basic maintenance tasks, or tweak DOS to do some batch jobs. Now you require a science degree to even find the bonnet release Confused

You do mean an engineering science degree don't you Danny otherwise I have had it and my hubby will think I should be perfectly capable of managing a few maintenance tasks under the bonnet of the carDalek
