Re: Regrets, I've had a few....



It was lovely meeting you and Mrs G at the Jubilee fete in the summer and it's such ashame we didn't manage to meet up again.

If you need any contacts for IP in the future just give me a shout. It won't feel the same now when I post stuff to WIPO. Even though I know you work in a different department to where I was sending it, I always thought of you

thanks mimi, I guess I can be in touch via Facebook if I need, but for the moment I'm just going to enjoy a bit of retirement. Maybe finances and or boredom will change that but we'll see.

if you ever find yourselves down Cornwall look us up.

it's odd but even after all my bad jokes and comments I don't find jokes about child molesters funny.

We certainly will and make sure you at least go on Facebook from time to time so I can continue to stalk you

Good one!!!

Well gryncho, Goodbyes are such bittersweet sorrows. There is no other EFer who has insulted, given me more groans and red blobbies than you....what was is of lately? Right, pompous a**hole...
I was always hoping, that because of your advanced age, your artritis would eventually kick in and you wouldn't be able to type much anymore....or that you ODed on Viagra, trying to type with one finger.....but in the end, I'm glad your over-inflated, forum fairy/diva self didn't. It's good to see you leaving (ya know, enjoying retirement and all) and I hope to see you back here.


Here...I've got a song for you.

Just to say the thanks was for the brilliant song/video. I would never be rude to Grynch .

The forum works outside of Switzerland you plonker.

Just do a 'Nil'......move and then carry on posting as per normal.
And he could still keep organizing the GVA burger lunches. He doesn't actually have to be there.

Ah so ..... you got paid for 8 hours of whiling away the day on EF? Who`s the next lucky employee...... or EFer? Can I add my name to that list ....... I`ll happily spend 8 hours a day, with pay, on EF!
I'm totally qualified! We could job share.
