The Winter solstice has solsticed and they sun getting up earlier

Santa has emptyed his sack (Ooh er!), did you get what you wanted? if not may be this year!

the FIERCE EYEBROWS of the 'Scottish' Doctor Who has returned in his doc martin boots and the face of Cardinal Richelieu will he rock out Missy? Or have they already??

THE SUN IS STILL HERE (hopefully it will be around for a few billion WOMADs) YAY!!! YAY!!!!YAY!!!! (Can't see it, mind)

What will you have in your hip flask or flasks?

When all at sea hang onto a floating island
In space no one wants to sneeze
Let your son pay for the curry when he eats more than you do

Don't wave blue lights behind the back of police officer
Wave a flag in front of a stove pipe hat
Vote Bob!

I've made the jump. It feels strangely sci-fi. A bit like an episode of Quantum leap.

 

* Holy typo Batman, an Edit button. I guess I got my Christmas wish after all. In a roundabout sorta way.

Hello..am I here..feels weird ..glad to see you..where's the smiley faces???? :):):):)

Hi Jambo. You need a space between the smilies, eg :):):):)
Unforunately it doesn't seem to support smilies with noses :-)
You can click the smiley icon on the toolbar when you're typing your post and select from there too :)
Annnnnd... with this newfangled edit button you can go into your post and manually fix those smilies! :D

Jambo, all whirly and everything! Look what happens when you're half way round the planet! Hope today much more uplifting, warmer and enjoyable for you. Glad to see you made the leap! :):)

Sindig0, thanks for your help - and well done on reaching the stone below! :):)

Chas, thanks for your help both in getting us all a place to be and personally getting me here! :):)

Am I going mad? The edit link seems to have disappeared!

EDIT ... But it's back on this post... Perhaps it disappears after a while? Odd

Aha... Seems edit is only available for an hour (unless you pay for the gold membership) - On the subject of which, anyone know if it's worth forking out the eighteen squids a year for ad-free forums and mega-editing privileges?

How much just for ad and unsolicited music free? Is there a link?.. not to worry - I'll have a mooch around when I have more time to hand. :):)

 

There ought to be a roll call somewhere..... make sure everyone gets here safely! :):)

Jax, if you click on your name at the top right of the page and then go into account settings, you'll find "notifications" on the right hand side; click on that and make your preferences :):)
