I thought this forum needed a little bit of a pick me up thread which would give everybody the ability to post, comment etc.

This thread is just like the one on Seven Forums except we have to strive to make it even more interesting than that one.

Also I didn't want John's precious bandwidth and servers running empty and idle ;).

Feel free to post.

The more interesting the better.

I'll get us started: Today I made a thread called 'Today' to liven things up a little.

I also got my iPhone contract downgraded at last.

Oh then you definitely let them think they got their own way, as long as they don't get too involved with the football and forget the date.:eek:

Yes I know it's also my friend in Canada's as well but she's a bit older than John, I think this one is 72 for her, and my neighbour had her 80th on Friday, Junes a good month for birthdays.;)

Across the pond(US) if one is not working or doing to his/her capacity we call it a "half assed job!"
Meaning they are not giving it a 100% effort.
I told my son when he got married that marriage is not a 50-50 proposition. You either both give 100+% or it just won't work.
My wife and I will be married 44 years on August 5th.
I watch and read all your responses in 7 and enjoy them to the utmost!
