I finally got it. Not a name I'd come across before so a tad obtuse for my Ozzie brain. Chris, the thing we all really miss is 'Recent Comments'. We've requested a return for same repeatedly but, sadly, are steadfastly ignored.

In the nicest possible sense.Think of the fruit of the hazel. Sun 15 Aug 2010 12:24:20 GMT+1 Phil Burt http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2010/08/and_now_a_story_about_salman_r.shtml?page=84#comment16 13.

Or rather, to us we are "you", but to others we are who we pretend to be.....or somesuch.

I recall that as having happened some time ago, and I asked questions then but never got an answer as far as I remember. You must be able to see who it is, anyhow, or you woldn't have known it was me to say hello to.

There seem to be fewer ways to find what I might be looking for, and fewer threads on view. The categories list was quite useful, I thought: was there a reason given for it being truncated and made difficult (not that I don't like the idea of an "am glass box beach", but what about the ordinary beach, and the am glass box without the sand in it)? And why is the faq given tiddy type to make it look utterly insignificant, as though the the categories box were a rather poor quality 1980s advertisement for insurance or something with capital letters ON random wrods FOR no reason, and umpteen different fonts like a small boy let loose on DTP at about the same date? Dear oh dear, what amateur nonsense that is... Sun 15 Aug 2010 10:17:46 GMT+1 Lady_Sue http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2010/08/and_now_a_story_about_salman_r.shtml?page=63#comment12 Lovely photos Phil. I hadn't realised that you was in there. Trying to decode a word from your blog name but am defeated.

Lady Sue"it a bit more difficult for the devout, I imagine."Not many overweight Muslims in the Arctic Circle, I reckon, and probably very few in Antarctica either...Welcome back Fish, and very glad to learn you're on the recovery list. Putting on the years has many benefits, but also its downsides. Thank God(s) for the NHS, imperfect or not.

Interesting how the month of Ramadan is moving higher up the summer months, making it a bit more difficult for the devout, I imagine.Chris, sorry you've not been well but glad you are on the mend and once again fit to be a fully fledged nuisance (not that you ever were). There has been some feeling of late that the blog has become prone to provocative, rather than thought provoking, comments. I quote an observation made by a wise fellow frogger that 'some sound as though they have escaped from a Monty Python sketch - "Eh lad, it were rough in our day." ' There was a spate of a lot of inverted snobbery, pointless class-based attacks and attacks due merely to political affiliation. Any response to same resulted in the inevitable "You are picking on me because I'm working class and never went to university" retort. A lot of froggers, myself included, simply couldn't be bothered dealing with the constant whining but mercifully, that all seems to have settled down a bit.

The blog's still here. A few regulars are missing as, perhaps due to elections, things got a mite political. But most return from time to time. As for me, I can't stop being a complete nuisance. Not yet, anyway.:o) Sat 14 Aug 2010 22:48:27 GMT+1 Chris Ghoti http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2010/08/and_now_a_story_about_salman_r.shtml?page=36#comment7 Big Sister, I have been over on the Archers MB, until I got moderated for asking a question about an actor. It's a long story. Essentially, it is less intellectually demanding being rude about TA than it is dealing with current affairs.I have also been having a heart attack and then having my thyroid pack up, which kinda handicaps yer when it comes to being bothered to do anything, really. Now they have finally diagnosed it (which I had done some months back but I couldn't summon the energy to make a fuss about their not bothering to test for it) I shall probably get better. For which read, feel fit to be a complete nuisance again....How are you? How's the blog? Any explosions, or anyone drownded?

My reference was merely to the "Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness..." during which I seem to make a lot of jam and chutney.

Thank you for your time.

I am conducting a small experiment to discover whether my having broken the unwritten code on another BBC board (I don't know what I did but I am suddenly being premoderated there) means that I am penalised here as well. Pay no attention... Fri 13 Aug 2010 16:37:54 GMT+1 Phil Burt http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2010/08/and_now_a_story_about_salman_r.shtml?page=5#comment1 1.
