Title: Missing Persons....
Post by: Fester on August 06, 2011, 12:41:53 AM
I was thinking tonight about what Ian and Dave had said recently about not enough members posting.
Then my thoughts turned to those who used to post quite regularly, but now we don't hear from.
I would be interested to know why the likes of..
BLONGB
PADDY
QUIGGS
CURLY CAP
JASON W
MR FALAFEL

..don't post much (if anything) these days.
If you are looking in guys, it would be nice to hear from you, or maybe a little feedback as to what kept you away?

Waggaloff is another one and he seems to have also deleted his account as well as all his posts and his excellent photographs.
Title: Re: Missing Persons....
Post by: Bri Roberts on August 06, 2011, 06:41:42 AM
Apparently, Waffagolf was only a Guest and that is why I could not find him.

Title: Re: Missing Persons....
Post by: DaveR on August 06, 2011, 08:07:00 AM
Waffagolf decided to leave the Forum (I'm still not quite sure why), but all of his posts and excellent photos are still in place.

Just today I was about to add the name PENDRAGON to this thread,  and then she pops up!   Bless her...

So, instead... I shall add the name of our most venerable moderator, IAN, to the missing persons list.

Don't put me on the list, I'm still around, just been very busy selling a car and buying another classic car miles away and of course looking after feathered friends  D)  can we get the Scum thread going again? I was enjoying that!  WWW

Hi Fester (and all....) Sorry only just seen your post from early August!

Yes I have been missing and just haven't had time to post ! My life revolves around the school hols so I'm back now ! (It was nice to be missed though !!!)

Although I don't post too often, I do tend to just browse as a guest to keep up with things.

I've actually recruited a new member too ! So hope I get a few Brownie points for that !  ;D

Sorry for not posting recently I think I'm bored stupid at the moment there's lots of things I could be doing but can't get motivated to do any of them.  The weather is dreadful so I don't even want to go for a walk......................basically I'm a miserable bint at the moment folks.  However Llinos (little Sis) and I are going for a long walk on Thursday up to Aber to see the Medieval (?) huts they've uncovered then over to Llanfair mountain to see if we can see any remains of habitation from Braich Y Dinas.  I'd love to know more about the landscape and I find Braich Y Dinas fascinating.   ;D

Post by: Fester on September 07, 2011, 12:51:05 AM
Hey Miserable Bint... Mrs Fester was wondering where you had got to, and would very much like to join you and little sis, on any walks you are planning.
Failing that, she will just get drunk with you?

If you send me a PM or email I will provide you with proof.

To be honest, I could not believe it myself at first - but further searching on google and with mutual contacts confirmed it to me.

I've just read the news story  &shake& Victims of abuse can begin the road to normality when these perpetrators are bought to justice and jailed.  The worst thing as a victim is the guilt and the bottling it up but once out in the open the issue becomes a lot easier to talk about and deal with.  I do hope the lads in question are alright.
Title: Re: Missing Persons....
Post by: DaveR on November 01, 2011, 07:48:09 PM
In a way a bit irrelevant as he isn't going to be around for quite a while, but I thought it only right that the user 'Mr Falafel' be banned from the Forum.
Title: Re: Missing Persons....
Post by: Pendragon on November 29, 2011, 12:15:11 PM
So it's definitely true then.  I agree he should be banned.

Hmm, Barbs has been quiet recently, but she was logged on here earlier this morning.... maybe she has run out of words for the games?

Hi Guys, I went as promised to see Trojan`s mum, she said he is asleep in the day,also he has moved house so his computer was not in use for some time,asked his mum to tell him we were all asking about him,so mystery solved. :D

This weekend, I had the pleasure of chatting with BRUM BOB,  (and the delightful Mrs Brum Bob)

I always appreciated Bob's contributions on this Forum, even if I didn't join in all the quizzes.
I also know that he pops the odd note on Oscar.

After our chat, I am hoping that we see Brum Bob, (posting as BrumBob) back on here quite soon!

Posted three times less than 48 hours ago.  Couldn't find any space yesterday and am just late today having been slaving over a hot stove all day.    Alive and well, not a care in the World, shares doing well (not GVC), car running well and the missus not nagging me.   ZXZ

I too was concerned re-Yorkie. But from a different perspective.

You see he has never gone more than 24 hours without annihilating me at Scrabble, even when in Portugal!

But now I see that normal service is about to be resumed.

There are other missing persons who concern me more.   Barbiroli, Pendragon and FatAndy, to name but three.

I think this should be reduced to 10 minutes after 9.30a.m.  and then allow 15 to 20 minutes after 10.00 p.m.  He must sleep sometime!

Great news about Blodyn. I remember dropping her off near her home on a very wild and windy night after a Xmas get together and then she disappeared from the forum so I am relieved that all is well.
What about Paddy, Blongb and 1 rob 1?
Hope you are all okay also.

Hollins, BlongB was OK when I saw him recently.   Paddy has not been seen or heard from for a couple of years now.

Post by: Michael on October 13, 2015, 09:51:05 PM
  One of the influential members of the forum is having to have a visit to hospital to have what is nowadays a "small" operation. Keyhole surgery. Only a matter of days and he (it is a he) will be back with us. But no treatment and all sorts of nasty things will happen.
   He told me the other day. He didn't say not to tell anyone. But then again he didn't say to shout about it. So I cannot reveal his name. But I am sure you would wish to join me in wishing him the best of luck and come back to us soon. He will read this in the forum. Mike

  One of the influential members of the forum is having to have a visit to hospital to have what is nowadays a "small" operation. Keyhole surgery. Only a matter of days and he (it is a he) will be back with us. But no treatment and all sorts of nasty things will happen.
   He told me the other day. He didn't say not to tell anyone. But then again he didn't say to shout about it. So I cannot reveal his name. But I am sure you would wish to join me in wishing him the best of luck and come back to us soon. He will read this in the forum. Mike

Mike, what the hell you on about? 

I hope it's Born to Run, and that it's nothing too trivial....  :laugh: :laugh:

Hmmm... Keyhole surgery - "small" operation - addressing potential consequences if left untreated - Male... Sounds suspiciously like a hernia op to me.

But we can't wish anyone well if we don't know who it is, Mike.

Not really an influential member but at least an avid reader. The member in question is me unfortunately. I'm booked in at The Christie in Manchester next week to have Robotic Keyhole surgery on early stage Prostate Cancer.

Wishing you all the best Medz,  and that is the first time I have heard of this procedure used for that condition.

I have had to clue myself up quite recently to help a family member who was diagnosed with it.
He is now over the radiography and associated therapies.
It has been inconvenient, and time consuming..... but now, you would not know he had had been affected at all.

I hope it's 'business as usual' for you too, very soon.

Thanks for all the kind wishes. Much appreciated. Robot has to be seen to be believed and offers surgeons  10 times magnification and accuracy over normal surgery.

Good luck with the operation Medz, it's marvellous what they can do now.     A friend of mine had it last year and has had the all clear and is back to his old self again.

 I started this conversation off without themedz being mentioned, under the title something like "0ne of our members is going to hospital."  However after a post or to it changed its name to "missing persons."   Anyone any idea why? It certainly was nothing to do with me

I changed it, Mike, since it seemed appropriate.

 Thanks Ian. It was just unfortunate timing that a local man went missing and there was a big police appeal for any information. All tourist attractions were written to individually, by email of course.

Just a quick update for all those who wished me well for the operation.
I returned home after a 4 day stay in The Christie in Manchester and am now almost 4 weeks after the procedure. Not certain if it was the power of the medication they sent me home with or the robotic key hole nature of the surgery but it seems to have been a lot less painful than I was expecting.
I have  managed to get out on a few very short walks in the last week or so and things are now heading back to some sort of normal.
I go for some tests next week to see whether the procedure has been successful.
Thanks once again for your kind thoughts.
Medz

Wish you all the very best, TM. And there's nowhere better than Christies for that problem, either.

Just been back to The Christie to get histology results from samples taken from extracted prostate. Although they will never give a 100% all clear they seemed confident there is no immediate evidence of any cancer being left behind. Relieved doesn't come any where near close to how I'm feeling.

Have not heard from Tom Davidson recently, no sign of him on the DP blog.  ?

He has left the DP and gone to the big smoke, Steve.

I am still in touch with Tom. I told him you had been asking about him. He did try to leave a comment but he had forgotten his password and couldn't log in!
Anyway I passed on your good wishes. He is busy at the Daily Mirror in London now. Our loss, I feel. He was excellent on the live blog.
