    Just wondered how often everyone checks in here to have a read, I try to drop in most days, you do get to know names etc..
    And have a chat at the same time :)

    Used to be at least daily, then I stopped coming here for over a year, now back to daily - but it can take up a huge amount of time since I arrive mostly after everyone local has gone to sleep and finding 7 pages of new posts can be a daunting prospect. I'm getting better at skimming, but it's still time consuming. I need to become more efficient.

    I try and look in 2 or 3 times a day, I don't read all the threads as some are of no interest to me or I have no experience to offer the OP, seen many people come and go over the years but the forum seems to be going stronger than ever :)

    Step away from the ipad! Your wife will be taking it off you shortly! My family regularly threaten to take mine when they think I've been on the forum too long! I don't know who's the sadder - you for keeping in touch with us lot or me for sitting with my feet up watching where eagles dare for about the 20th time! Hope you and your family have a lovely relaxing holiday and enjoy your beer!

    I pop in when an alert comes up and also several other times to look at new posts. Hope you are having a good time in turkey mo. Do you find the sun raises your blood glucose levels?

    Thanks and the heat doesn't seem to affect me much. I do a lot more walking around which does but not the heat itself. It does for many though.

    I pop in every day because it is full of useful information. And you feel you can ask any question without appearing stupid. Nice friendly people and games.
