DOESN’T THIS WEBSITE MAKE YOU PROUD? |
A word of appreciation on its second anniversary...
Just a word to show my appreciation to this website and the folk that visit.
A lot of folk rely on this very unique, interesting and lively message board, from ‘back home’, and many just can’t do without their daily read. I think we’re all a bit spoilt for choice - what, with interesting stories and chat; Alan’s ‘Wotsits’; Lilian, Alex, Elizabeth, Don and others’ wise comments and reliable long memories; The new Hebburn Archives: http://hebburnarchives.info/; Patrick Brennan’s historical knowledge: http://www.donmouth.co.uk/; Peter Cook, our new shipping aficionado, with an immense shipping knowledge; Trish’s sterling, ongoing charity work; John K’s humour; Brian’s immense music and film knowledge; James Goring’s ‘Then & Now’ and other fantastic pictorial contributions; Ricky’s excellent Computer advice; Tom Barker, Mac Cummings, Michael Lynch and Llyn Green’s great little stories; Allan Campbell’s adventures, and last, but not least, the numerous contributions from everyone else. It makes you proud, doesn’t it?
I have a great regard for the lovely folk that use this board, and see it as our little cyber-community. It is such a pleasure to visit, and I’m sure that many of us regulars feel the loss when a friend - even if we’ve never met in person - leaves the board or passes on.
I respect Norman Dunn, for his relentless hard work, kindness and understanding, and especially for taking over the helm, by building a brand-new message board on our behalf, just 2 years ago - how good’s that? Also, I applaud the good work done behind the scene by Norman’s team.
It’s wonderful to see how Norman, and the other great folk on the board respond to the frequent queries… and more amazingly, how often they are solved!
I’d like to say thank you to everyone that uses Norman’s message board, whether you contribute or not, for making it all happen; especially a huge thank you to Norman, for keeping his board a safe and happy place to visit for all of us over these last two years.
Norman, happy 2nd birthday to your message board, and long may it continue.
