FB has ruined this site.. by johnnyBgood! on 4 February 2012 11:08am
 
There are so many Palinites and ex-Palinites that post dozens of posts each day on FB but don't bother to share on here. ( no Ken, it's not my fault. A few years ago, I and a few others kept this site going by posting anything from topical to just nonsense, while you were getting over-excited all over your stamps. )

I know that quite a few of you that met here now have your wee FB clique. We have a saying in Scotland...." Don't forget your old arse. "

If I have to translate for the hard of thinking...it means ' don't forget your roots.'

Michael himself hasn't posted a message on here in almost a year!

Actually he did post an informal video message about the upcoming "Brazil" series. If you go to the home page it is in the right hand corner. I think the informal video message is better than the letter to be honest.

What's Michael Palin got to do with it ? ;)
This site belongs to kazzzz,Mike, Pete,Anne,Suzulu,Linz,myself, Loretto,Ken,ev,wee Terry,Geraldine and quite a few who are missing in action.

Newcomers and visitors are usually made welcome. ( just watch out for Ken Dunn. He'll steal your stamps.....and then your wife. )

Yeah, thinking back...I had some thoughts of the future when watching Get Smart. Remember Max had a shoe-phone?

If the chatroom worked it would be a lot more fun around here.

It's a shame that we don't have the chatroom anymore.

Hey Sue!!!! I never got to even see it in use. It requires a heck of a lot of moderation.

I only used the chatroom once or twice because my typing speed wasn't up to 'live' chat (still isn't). However, certain people blamed 'the like of me' for causing it's demise. Aye right. This site was innovative in it's day but social media sites took over and the 'chatroom' was rarely used. MP probably pulled the plug on it for cost reasons.
