Southampton get together 13/11/04

Is cancelled due to a shortage of takers. More enthusiasm in the Frozen Northern Wastelands, where they sit by their great log fires and tell a tale (Hence Noggin, I suppose) so I'll be there (Staying sober[:(])

Wish i could go to the northern meet, but having it on a Saturday in the christmas peak (peak starts 8 weeks before christmas day!) sucks, i'd be hard pressed to get a sunday off, but i'd be looking for a new job if i went AWOL on the saturday!

what you mean we should go and get france back? i guess parts would be cheaper if we club together and buy citroen of the UK government (or would that be US government?). He he, jasper carrot has the right idea, get 40,000 tickets on the euro star and take an army over on the chunnel!

France? I've already invaded it with many of my compatriots. Some villages in the North West are entirely populated by English expats but I live in a relatively French one. Yes, I have been to Manchester. (I built the "Cracker" attraction for the Granada studio tour.)
Coming up North and not drinking is a legal necessity Vanny unless you want me to travel by train! As for a War between North and South, WE'VE GOT BERNIE! (So any more sabre rattling from you lot and we'll send him to you.)

Well, we could always go for a drink in the Dolphin anyway, Tom? That is, unless I find myself driving a Citroen Relay van up/down the M4 again next weekend. I hope not, because it had the most arse-numbing seats I think I have ever encountered in ANY vehicle.

Tom - you could always stop over somewhere ooop north (we have these things called ho-tels where in exchange for money or payment in kind the kindly inn keeper will offer you a bed/drink/ daughter for the night).....[:-)]
There is always my caravan in Preston!
