    Inspired by Big Wills observations of the Lounge in Forum Feedback (http://www.amateurphotographer.co.u...-by-BigWill-to-quot-Reinstate-the-Lounge-quot), I want to do a little test.

    We've all been there, there has been something in the news, or you've nearly hijacked another thread, or a little something has happened which may not seem like it needs a a full thread unless others are are already talking about it, or you just want to say something, but no you're not sure it has a place on the forum... This is now that place.

    A thread where absolutely anything can go, photographic query, random jokes, gripes, moans, tangents, thread hijacks, newbie introductions, if you want it said in and no one else has started a thread for it, why not say it here, this is your place to say it, or even somthing you would not say elsewhere in the forum. A thread for absolutely anything.

    A thread to just join in with. Old hands, newbs, everybody.

    So, fire away, as I sure as hell have no idea how to kick it off :)

    The mods are always entitled to remove posts from any thread, but the Lounge should not be somewhere you are scared to pop a comment on just because you don't think it has a place :)

    Release those inhibitions and just say what you want :)

    Last night on the way to archery I caught the end of my bow in my bike wheel and snapped the end off the limb. That's irrelevant, but it explains why what I really want to say is **** **** **** **** **** **** **** **** **** **** **** ****!

    Why is my bit of Manchester virtually gridlocked because a couple of drivers didn't notice the heavy rain & thought it might be a good idea to slow down - even if it it meant getting to work or the kids to school 5 minutes late.:mad::mad:

    That's far too complicated a question for me.

    If it's any result, I'm out of this one. Can do this more effectively in Facebook! Sorry Will.

    Who else remembers Arthur Mullard? Looked like a bruiser; good comic actor. I remember one small sketch in particular where he was in the background, but suddenly said:

    "Anyone mind if I put a word in here?"

    "Of course not!"


    The rest of the sketch then moved on without him. It my have been in the Spike Milligan Q series.

    Longbow? How much did you break off? You might be able to fit an external nock, though it could take the bow outside some of the competition criteria.

    Was that AP forum or another site? I've not had any email at all. Not even from that nice Nigerian Prince.

    AP forum re changes to Personal details within Profile. If I wish I can now put details about the gear I use, so that other people looking at my profile (?) will have a better picture of where I'm coming from.
    PS It's a little puzzling, because I do that already. Hmm.
    PPS It's even weirder since on looking at my Profile I see it says I haven't created any Albums yet. I have - two of them.

    I have not now nor never worn green tights to shoot in! (a sentence specially crafted to produce merriment amongst those trying to parse it).

    It is - or possibly was - a Hungarian-style recurve, and it's split at one nock. See pic - it's a link as it's oversize for AP:


    I have emailed a pic to the supplier to see if they will repair it, failing that I have a couple of people who might be able to give it a go, but I'm concerned that it might go again when at full draw. Ah well, it's only money...

    Don't recall that sketch but it does sound very Milligan.

    Which begs the questions, "What are we gonna do now? What are we gonna do now? What are we gonna do now?..." ;)

    You'll not get any more e mails from him. I just sent my bank details off to him yesterday, so I've claimed the money.
