I've just discovered this new-look forum and I seem to have lost a few days! I check it every day and post quite frequently, but my posts since the 15th December seem to have disappeared. No problem.
However, the old forum must have made the Private Messages a little more difficult to see and I hadn't even looked there before - they are more obvious here and I just spotted five messages from way-back that I'd never seen before. Clearly that's my fault - I just hadn't noticed them! Anyway, I'd like to apologise to Jools-Elliott, AMK1977, chris-p, haole dreams and markvandamme. Some of those go back over a year! Sorry about that!
In particular, Jools Elliott and I had got into a heated debate about photographic holidays and he sent me a message which explained his point of view..... I would have replied fully had I known about it, but there you go. Sorry Jools. All water under the bridge now - we'll have to agree to disagree.
