Re: use of the comma raises it's head again

My son and daughter, in their twenties, have informed me that I get the grammar of text messaging wrong. Instead of a long block of text, with full-stops (periods) in it, I should use a new text for every sentence, or thought. Use of full-stops marks me out as a dictatorial old fogey! So they would...

Re: An afternnon at Notcutts Garden Centre near Oxford

good photos Shaun (except the one where you caught me scoffing a bacon bap and using my headlamp cowl as a cup holder). Thanks to Brian and Joan for arranging it with the TV group. Great to see everyone. Hope we can make this one a regular fixture, probably for as long as Jonathan is manager of the ...

Re: We're in the wrong business...

Yeah, but you need the money to repair and replace if something goes wrong true, but you do anyway and at £1,000 a day I could run to a few repairs....
