Feel free to post a simple "here", your region or city so people can get an idea of who is in their area.
Laugh when you can, apologize when you should, and let go of what you can't change. Kiss slowly, play hard, love deeply, forgive quickly, take chances, give everything, and have no regrets. Life is too short to be anything but HAPPY.

We do have the UK Register of Interests thread which has been used for this purpose for the last two years. It would be a shame to lose track of this.  Is there any way to link it to here?

For the record Lady Elsie and I reside in a small village between Doncaster and Worksop.
