There hath been some serious Smiting going on this week. We lost three great ones on one day. Chef Gary Rhodes. Writer, poet and critic and very funny man Clive James. Topped off with Polymath Jonathan Miller. Where to start with him. A Doctor of Medicine, producer of film and also of Opera and also a comic who starred in beyond the fringe. *Sigh* Sad losses.
As we have said privately edgar, I think that may well be the case. Like yourself I remember a few years ago when there were hundreds of members and dozens who posted regularly but it now appears that the dreaded 'social media' has taken over.
I'll be interested in the response to that. Genuinely.
I've been on a number of forums that have dwindled and died (maybe it's me!! ) It's just the way it is and I wouldn't even want to presuppose why. Not that it really matters, 'times change' works for me as a reason.
I shall se what I can do. Social meejah has overtaken us that is for sure. Also this forum is not as user friendly as the I.F ever was which also does not help. Perhaps if we offer free bog roll and hand sanitiser to anyone who posts.....

People will start using it as paper money by the sheet. Cheapo sheets as the lowest denomination, say a pound, right up to 50 quid sheets of quilted multi- ply with added Hello Vera. I bet if you held a sheet up to the light these days in the UK you'd see a watermark of the Queens head.
MR LORAC! How absolutely bloody wonderful to see you. It has been so long since you left these shores to live among the people of the Emerald Isle. I do hope you are well and those we know in that enchanted village also so.
Yes bog roll has almost become a currency on an international scale. We are O.K at present but are being sparing with the spicy foods for obvious reasons.
