If you have looked in the comments on Gill's biography lately you will see that there is quite a bit of off topic discussion going on. Ryan suggested that we should have a chat thread like they do over at One for the Dads so that specific threads don't clogged up with off topic discussions. So as I usually find this kind of stuff reasonably entertaining I thought I would kick thinks off. So if you fancy engaging the rest of the people that you see are logging in, in some discussion that does not really deserve a topic of its own, this is the place to start the ball rolling.
Panfan, if it is possible, it might be a good idea to shift some of that stuff in Gill's biography thread over here. But there again you have probably enough else that needs doing to render such a request a complete waste of your valuable time.
Oh by the way, welcome to pp.com Chrisb, I should imagine that Ryan and Suefan will be extremely jealous of that letter you have from Sue.
