Thread: Isn't it lovely to be nice?

  1. #1

    Isn't it lovely to be nice?

    Although in my opinion frog got a few things wrong in his posts I must congratulate him on bringing the subject of behaviour up and most have responded in a splendid way.

    It's now a charming site with niceties and pleasantries abounding.

    I was thinking of inviting monty and one or two others for tea but I will be away for a short time...This may help a bit by removing me from the situation as I do seem to be a red flag to a bull at times.

    I congratulate all those who are responding to frog's pleas and I for one will try and continue to post in a polite and respectful manner.....I have total trust that others will continue to do the same.

    I will be monitoring the situation from my sun bed so please continue with the charm.

    Well done frog and a thank you to pocket rocket who calmed me down at a time I was about to boil over.

    Lots of love

    Thank you very much monty for your heartfelt and totally genuine comments.

    I feel that I am ready for a spot of sunshine and a game or two of blackjack with the American guests who like a gamble.

    I wish you all the best and thank you once again for the kindest of comments.

    May I say without embarrassing you how much I have enjoyed reading some of your articles on the battle of Brunenburh.

    I was particularly interested in another author's view that the site may have been Brinsworth as I used to live there on Roman Crescent.

    Absolutely gripping stuff and I admire your enthusiasm for this topic and even as a non enthusiast on this particular topic I absolutely loved trawling through your work.

    k with love and respect

    And to you gmgm.

    I do hope the boxing training is going well.

    I am sidelined at the moment due to problems with my chronic groin injury a legacy of a lifetime of fitness training but I hope to be back soon.

    Have a really good day and I do hope your business is thriving also.

    You have made my day despite the wrong spelling of Brunanburh (Zil has the same trouble). I am glad that you have finally realised that I was not the proponent of Brinsworth. Sad to say it's most prominent advocate, Michael Wood, has now changed his mind and thinks the battle was a few miles away on a hill overlooking the river Went. If you like I can send you a signed copy of my various articles, a dvd of my TV series and an advance copy of my book soon to be out with the OUP. Don't worry about the Latin, Old English and Gaelic passages as I provide translations for the non-academic reader.

    It's an interesting topic Monty.

    I think the battle ground might have been further away. My thought is that it might have been at Stamford Bridge. A traditional strongpoint river crossing and natural geographical boundary.

    The later much recorded battle of 1066 would have obliterated any real archaeological evidence thus making proof impossible.

    Grist, it is an interesting topic but a frustrating one. I doubt if there is a county in the whole country that has not been suggested as the battle site at some stage. Why not Stamford Bridge; probably as good a claim as anywhere. I still get regular emails from people insisting they know where it was fought.

    Good afternoon to all on this lovely day

    Yes you are quite correct of course.

    In a previous post on this fascinating subject I did indeed mistakenly attribute the Brinsworth hypothesis to yourself and as you say in your correction it was Michael Wood and you favour another site.

    After reading your articles I had to ask myself 'where actually was Wendun'?..but Wendun for now remains a mystery..

    Hopefully just like King Richard in my nearby town the truth will be revealed eventually.

    It can be a heavy subject at times but as I say your dedication and expertise on the subject is admirable indeed.

    Good luck with the search for this historical battle site the whereabouts of which has perplexed us all for a lifetime.

    Kindest Regards

    k

    Good afternoon pocket.

    May I again thank you for your advice yesterday which came at a time that I was just about to blow a fuse.

    Your advice and an extra dose of pregabalin has brought peace and calmness to myself and I cannot thank you enough.

    Three wins and this site has turned into a John and Yoko love in. Let's hope it remains that way at 5pm on Saturday.

    Even Mr K has relegated himself to a small k although I did notice he still allowed a reference to Mrs K. I guess she wears the pants in the household, at least when k doesn't have them on his head.

    Kum bay ya, my Lord.

    Good morning Mr CAM.

    Thank you so much for giving me a mention as this has saved me the trouble of saying look at me and talking about myself and posting simply for attention.

    I hope all is well in the USA.

    A thousand apologies for my mental aberration the other day mistakenly calling you a w..anker when in fact you are a lovely lovely person.

    I am confident that the love in will continue as everyone has now discovered their gender neutral side

    I do hear that one poster who I cannot name is suffering with acute confusion reading all this but will soon be posting saying he now accepts my time at RGS and realises that I actually did take Alevels a year early.

    I wish you and Mrs CAM all the very best and please do not fret I will be returning in 2 weeks after my cruise to the Azores.

    Lots and love and respect to the mods

    Enjoy you cruise Kempo, and please pass my best wishes to Mrs K.

    I strongly recommend a mudslide around 10.30 each evening
