Re: NOTICE BOARD

glenn thanks for writing this. it takes a big person to apologise - its a skill a lot of people have never developed. i suppose the lesson to take away from it all is that it is never wise to get too entrenched in a particular point of view otherwise you can lose sight of the wood for the trees. at ...

Re: alcohol - cutting down or cutting out?

hi hh

just wanted to give you a hug and remind you that even someone as strong as you is going to need support sometimes - whenever you need it just ask. you have been brilliantly supportive of me and i would like to be able to offer something back.
