It's a small world indeed, Tina. Crosshaven is 50 mies east of my homeplace - a little village called Drimoleague, not far from Bantry / Skibbereen.

Interviews done and dusted. There were just two but spaced apart. I should know by Fri.

So . . Thu evening & night it shall be after my shift in the charity shop.

Fair warning to you all but I will post again before I start. I will have to shut down the forum for a few hours. It will look very different in its new format.

I'll try that again!

Never been to Eire, my Mother was cast out of the family, when she committed , not one , but two Cardinal sins, married an Englishman, who was also an Athiest. I met my Granny once,, when my Father was overseas, and my Auntie Mary, who was a Nun, came to visit us a couple of times.cry

No problems, Tina & Steve. At least it deflected attention away from me and the delay! cheers 

I got back late on Thu, missed by shift in the charity shop, and was exhausted TBH. Fri was recovery day and I slept a lot as well as doing a shift. Today I will go there 9 to 1 and work on the forum upgrade before and after.

So - we may be offline Sat afternoon/evening and perhaps interruptions on Sun too. I will post here before I do anything that might interrupt service.

Thank you

To the kind and generous people who contributed towards the cost of the upgrade:

Iris, Aly, Danuta, Toni and Sue

All donated £5 and one exceptionally nice individual sent £10. Thank you!

The cost of $39 translated to £23.45

Net donations totalled £29.46 magic

So a small surplus of £6.01 for the next event. welldone

You're welcome, Danny.  You know how much we love this forum, not just for the help and advice - which there's always plenty of - but for enabling us to make friends with like-minded people and share our daily lives with each other.  And we have a laugh, or a shoulder to cry on when we need one.  And actually getting to meet the people we have become friends with, that's the best thing.
