Default UK Chit Chat

This is a new thread for UK members to visit to leave messages, notes, arrange a rendezvous, or do anything else involving other UK members, which is not relevant to another existing thread. I had already thought of doing it when Fiona suggested the same thing. (We can't both be wrong!)

Thumbs up Wow! You made it easy for me Andy.

Well Done Andy. You saved me posting exactly the same message.

In fact I was thinking of a regular weekly LC Chat Get-Together every Saturday at 8pm but we could make it more flexible.

Who can make it to the first LC Chat Gathering this Saturday 22 September 8pm GMT?

I will be there.
Ken and Margaret are going to be tussling for the keyboard.

Bez are you interested? We may discuss when the SECOND UK LC Gathering might happen. 8th September was the first one and it went so well I am sure there will be others.

Take care.

Hi everybody

Well done Andy, just what we need, a pad of virtual post-it-notes
I was wondering if it was possible to make this tread 'Sticky' so that it stays near the top of the list.

I hope a few more UK LC'ers can make Saturdays Chit Chat (U know it makes sense)

Thumbs up Stuck .. Good idea

{Ken: a pad of virtual post-it-notes } Great description. That is exactly what it is.

Post is stuck now. Good thinking there Ken.

Making it regular will help to get more people making that diary entry for the date in Chat.

Andy hopes to be there.
Take care

I'll certainly try to be around for the chat. 8pm is about baby putting to bed time but i'll persuade my wife she can do it.
See you then

Jon

Cool

Hi Jon

Just a quick message to welcome you to the ever increasing clan? of UK Low Carbers. I hope that You are able to make the Chat tomorrow, If not then I'm certain there will be plenty of other opportunities. I read your post in the 'UK LC Gathering' thread and hope that you can arrange to 'visit the family' and meet up when the next gathering is arranged.

Speak Soon

Hi Jon and Bez. I also would like to welcome you to the forum, this thread, and our regular contacts. Hope to be in the Chat Room at 8pm Sat (i.e. today!) and only some kind of emergency at home will prevent it.

Best wishes,

Andy.

Default Apologies Everyone

Hello all Uk members and apologies from me to all of you.

I though this was a 'holding post' for all our introductions and to let us know who on the board was UK based - So apologies once again.

Noo came in on talk last night, she wanted to know what was going on so I alway's try to include her whenever I can - She's with her Dad this weekend so I can chat freely tonight...she was why I went back into the UK members list cos she asked if anyone was from the UK...so she did good!

I'm gonna need help cos I have never been into a chat room before ( I assume that we use the chat icon at the top of the page - Help!).

And,

Have not had any weight loss, am at original weight and need help - I know why and I'll tell you all later but I'll need to start from scratch so all help appreciated.

Thanks once again for making me feel so welcome.

Bez

Hi Bez,

No need to apologise. You haven't done anything wrong. There are no hard and fast rules. This whole thing is "organic", by which I mean it grows as it goes.

Look forward to reading about your "block" tonight. Yes, I also have had difficulty with the "Chat" room, but if you go back up the thread called "UK Gathering", you wll see an explanation from the Webmaster himself on how to use it. This helped me - give it a look!

Best wishes,

Andy.

Default Andy - Bez Needs More Help!!

Hi Andy,

Sorry but couldn't see UK gathering when went back up the thread.

Did you mean the thread that we posted to each other in or another thread or do I have to wait until tonight to find out when it becomes 'Active'?..can't see it I'm afraid but will keep looking.

Thanks,

Bez

Thumbs up That was fun - 1st Chat Gathering

I enjoyed that. It was great that you all came. In order to keep the momentum going how about tomorrow SUNDAY 23 sep at 2p.m.? We can make it 45-60 mins. I'll wait for ten minutes and if no-one turns up then I'll have to hope someone leaves a message for the next chat.

Take care.
