Re: RIP Keith Patten (Bristolian)

Yes, that is very sad and so unexpected. His participation will be missed, his last visit to the Forum was on November 16. His wife and son are in my thoughts and prayers. RIP Keith.

Re: Online Ordering - a sign of the times?

From my experience, Kerry is about the best we have. I have to agree with that. The wife got a parcel this past week, but it was meant to be two parcels. The guy returned to deliver the other at 2030 hours that night. If a DHL, Fedex screw up you would get the missed parcel sometime late the next d...

Re: IKTS 2017/2018

Schedule fatigue must be setting in. How could Leicester do so well against Southampton on Wednesday and then have this happen today (at home!) against Crystal Palace. :alien: :banghead:

EDIT: No one went unscathed as the entire group picked Leicester, but only 3 lost Bankers. :banghead: again.

Perhaps shrunk now to lower, similar to the crop of new MBA's putting 9 of something into a package instead of 10 and not announci...

Re: Alternative way to upload images to the forum.

TIP: Don't want to find hundreds of useless photo files clogging up your computer memory in a few years time?
