And now, a message from The Management ...

As it's Christmas week, and I dare say many if not most of us will be busy doing all sorts and dashing about here and there in final preparation (I know I will be), let me use this opportunity to wish everybody on NGLR a very merry Christmas, however you celebrate it and whatever it means to you, and a happy, healthy, peaceful and prosperous new year. It's been an interesting year - NGLR will be four months old exactly on Christmas Day  Smilie_PDT  I'd like to extend my sincere gratitude to Lexilogio and Shaft2101 who have done sterling work acting as forum moderators - not an onerous task, but one that at times does require people skills and a keen sense of judgement and balance that would make Solomon look like a bumbling wazzock, both of which they've displayed in spades    It remains to be seen what the future brings, but I know the past four months have been very enjoyable - long may we continue.

Anyway, here's to a smashing Christmas for us all :smt111

Who is Shaft2101 and what has he  done exactly?

Oh Well, Merry Christmas.  Smilie_PDT

Shafty is one of the two moderators of this forum.

Aw Admin, I just knew that heart was made of marshmallow.  :smt058

Seriously, lovely sentiments which I reciprocate and also extend to one and all.

My personal thanks too to Shaft and Lexi - WONDERFUL and wise and intelligent Moderators.  It's a difficult job to perform with total impartiality and fairness plus it's a thankless task, but I absolutely appreciate them both.  When one's been at the receiving end of some questionable Modding, it's easy to recognise quality and they are both Quality! They should offer training.

Oooh yes, 'Mod School' . . . Admin as 'Head', Shaft and Lexi as teaching 'heads of department', I'm a brilliant administrator (it's a Biblical calling dontchaknow) and wouldn't mind being school secretary/PA . . .

Well as Solomon's wisdom was a gift and a blessing from God then I think that this is unlikely, furthermore....

:oops:  its not that sort of thread is it?  

A very Happy and Festive Christmas to you all, after today I shall not be posting probably until after Christmas so thanks to you all for some lively, interesting and usually good tempered discussions here over the last few months.

Cheers

Lexilogio

And a Merry Christmas to everyone!

Admin has done a wonderful job with the forum - and Shafty is a great moderator.

But a forum is only as good as it's members - so the the thanks go out to all those who post here - and have a relaxing Christmas!
Shaft2101

Ho Ho Ho - Merry Christmas my fellow forumites. And let us not neglect a Happy New Year. And a Happy Hannukah if that floats your boat.

Do we even mention Kwanzaa?  

Lexi is bang on - a forum is only as good as its constituent members, which is why NGLR is so dreadful. I mean wonderful  :oops:  :twisted:

Well done to Admin and Lexi for their continued discernment, even-handedness, and generally running a tight ship which doesn't need much guidance, but when it does there's a strong, calloused hand on the tiller  :lol:

I agree with everyone about the Moderators.

I'm not going to be around until after Christmas and maybe New Year.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Ditto.

They've even inspired me to remove my Grumpy Old Man mask for a while, to wish them and everyone the Season's Greetings.

As they used to say in my youth "Like, cheers, have a Swingin' Yule."

A Merry Christmas to each and every one of you.

I heartily concur. and I warmly congratulate all the staff, who may help themselves to a tot of sherry from my decanter.

I'll be around over Christmas (even if no one else is) as I have discharged my  various filial and fraternal obligations prior to the auspicious event itself, but if I don't hear from any of you, I'll wish you all a warm merry Christmas here and now.  Merry Christmas!

Ah, I missed this before Christmas! I spent a few days with my son and family and other son called in with partner (atheists all I am pleased to say!) on 26th. This was also older granddaughter's 19th birthday. It was lovely to hear all about her first term at University.

Happy New Year to all.

In case I don't get to pop on later in the day - I hope you all have a fantastic New Year's Eve, and that 2009 is filled with even more health, wealth, prosperity and all that good stuff!

Happy New Year to all the Lads and Lassies who read this - Just surfaced and still feel knackered..

Was in the Gardens watching Glasvagas et al last night - They said it was going to be -3 or something last night, but there were so many bodies packed in to such an enclosed space it was 3/4 length shorts and T-shirt time, even though it was out-side..

Fireworks were OK - but because they had crammed so many into a small area of sky, halfway through all you could see was illuminated smoke...  Pah!!

Right-  time for coffee....  Laters
