    You keep posting and I'll back you up.
    Norwich, ex-Glasgow.
    My mothers' father served a seven year sign-painting apprenticeship in Glasgow and Edinburough.
    That's "eden-burra", in English, "the eden of the north". His name was Randle Fairfoull.
    I still have and use some of the stencils he brought over with him before the first world war.
    I still use a piece of luggage his wife brought over.

    I'm not always picking up, because I'm very picky, both up and down and all around.

    All good things come to an end, and everything has its season.

    If MIMF has to fade, let it do so with grace and honour. With friendly posts - reaching out to others, not egocentric - and with posts which are mainly about music, since this is a music forum.

    Nobody will join the forum, and nobody will return to it, if the posts don't interest them.

    And the posts won't be interesting, unless they are saying something in a sensible and civil way.

    That's the way I see it, anyway.

    Live long and prosper - anyone who's reading.

    There is a poster, a magle.dk poster, who comes from far away,
    her postings are new each day,
    and now I'm reading, my heart is heeding,
    what this new member has to say.

    For the fields of font aren't so empty now,
    they're descriptive now, a new field to plow,
    let your words flow like they're blowing chaff,
    and we'll all glean what we can.

    there is a poster, a brand new poster...

    One thing that intrigues me is that there are often said to be 20 people looking at the pipe organ forum and 17 looking at the classical music forum, but as there are so few new posts, what can they be a-doing of?

    I've been answering questions here about the lack of people logging in and posting,
    by saying there are so many viewers.
    I never thought about it enough to see if the numbers are the same all the time,
    but then, I'm coming at you from Niagara Falls time, many time zones away.

    I could wait a thousand years now.

    I expect that most of those reading will have an idea as to what the problem is.

    I've enjoyed my time on this forum so far.
