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

( ok, this thread is being placed here in Daily Life [‘cuz I’ve been here daily ] but “some” might think because of the music at the end it belongs in song of the day, others might think it belongs only in the trash…. Time will tell. )

Well kids and kiddo’s this is it , it's the end of the line, at least for my daily rantings and gentle amusements but before I go I wanted to say a few things:

To all the friends I’ve made here … Thanks for all the laughs!

To the friends I’ve made here and somehow lost … Thanks for all the laughs!

And to those that just think I’m an ungrateful asshole … Thanks for all the laughs!

I’ve also been trying to think of a song to go out on and several have come to mind including Pink Floyd “ Us and Them"; Canned Heat “Goin Up the Country” ; Grateful Dead (ungrateful dead?) “Truckin” ( what a long strange trip its been ) but in the end there could only be one song………

The forum works outside of Switzerland you plonker.

Just do a 'Nil'......move and then carry on posting as per normal.

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

I agree with the above, actually now you would have even more time.
or will you be too busy spending your days in the sauna with the naked germans? I envy you (the sauna, not the naked germans )

I enjoyed your "lite" style and hope you stay, otherwise best wishes for a relaxing retirement full of nice things!

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!

Why the hell can't you just write from Cornwall? I'm told they have internets and things.

You are indeed an ungrateful arse...

Yes, but you have to get the boiler up to speed first before the modem works.
