OK - I have set up a very basic framework of three forums. We need to keep the number of individual forums as low as practical because it adds extra load on the server and can slow things down.

It can be changed and improved as time goes by and other or different needs become apparent.

My subtitles for each forum are quite poor, so please suggest more appropriate wording.

Never knowingly underfed

Hey Michelle all we need is some loo roll insides and brown paper and some twigs from the woods and some snow spray....why oh why did we not think of that?

Because we would also think "no-one would be stupid enough to spend £90/£75 on a tree made from twigs annd snow spray and loo roll insides"....DAMN!!!!!!!!

wave  You know how I am always saying I am no good at arts and crafts?  Well, even I could have made that pathetic effort.  Perhaps I shall re-evaluate my future plans and become a tree millionaire!!!!!!!

It would be cheaper to buy a bare-root tree from a nursery than that.  Dumb people probably bought it...

I'll try that again!
