I wanted to take a few minutes to come online and post my apologies for not having been on here a great deal of late and for not contributing to the community that has in the past and will continued to be, a wealth of knowledge throughout the ownership of what has now been three cars and a great sense of banter.
I've realised that my presence on the other side has become more business, than of pleasure and that as well as forgetting to post threads of upcoming meets on here, I have not been posting in general. For this, I apologise and want to make clear that such occurrences have only been out of my own absent-mindedness and annoyance with things over there and nothing more.
Whilst away at the national the other weekend, certain members on the other side made unfair and accusatory comments about members who tend to stick to this forum, who I defended as I felt it was not right for them to be accused of one, things that were wrong and two, when they weren't present to defend themselves. (The look on some peoples faces when I told them that members such as Carl (Zeb) and Mick have had brunch at my house is another story all together! ) I found myself shocked at how militant some people can be and that they should be in a club/community for the cars over everything else.
The list of people I could thank for their help, support and friendship who frequent this site is long and I hope you all know who you are. I would, however like to thank Carl, Martin and Mick in-particular for everything over the past few years, I would never have thought one could make such friends through a car club, but safe to say these are friendships I hold amongst some of the closest to me.
Apologies in short for those who read this and think what the chicken pie.... in short - sorry for the absence and you'll see me around more often.
