Default Re: Happy New Year

OK I have no need to make my perennial resolution from years past to give up the weed .because on the 18th it will be 9 years since since I last lit a fag thank goodness.
My stroke was on the 17th, which this year would have been Nevil Shute's 110th birthday.On Saturday week therefore our New Jersey group of "Shutists" and "para-shutists" (spouses/partners who might not be as highly zealous a Shute fan as the prime member)
will be having a birthday party in his honoUr
This year my firm resolve/resolution will be to refrain from making inflammatory postings here especially on spam so that I can meet Char in Toronto in November and be able to converse with her , and also in the hope that Ron will stop ignoring me as I have several pending postings that I I hope will be of interest and help to corfiddlers as the result of much careful thought and research
So yes Happy New Year everybody and especially Gordon
