I saw that 'Arry, but your username then was arry awk, not 'Arry 'Awk, so it looks if you re-registered with a new username in 2008 for some reason.I'm sure the supplier of gold watches will take both of your identities into consideration when calculating your long service!

'Arry I think there's more than a few of us who, for what ever reason, re registered and are showing "newer" joining dates. I joined in April 2007 under a different name but a cockup at My end meant a re register and hence a different name and date.As long as You know when You joined that's all that matters.Kango.

Thanks Tasa! Have to wear one on each wrist then? (Or mebbekeep one for Sundays! LOL)Thanks everyone for jogging the old brainbox! I do remember nowhaving to re- register with a slight variation of the nickname.(insertion of apostrophies) Talk about a split personality!

In the days of cycling to all points of the compassaround Leeds circa 1945-47, we would stop at Lawnswooden-route for Otley/Ilkley etc, and slake our thirsts at the tramterminus, from an open ice-cream van that had one of thoseglass tanks full of orange juice which had plastic orange colouredballs circulating around inside! (I think it must've been run offthe van's battery cos the engine was always running to chargeit up). The "Orange Juice" was now't to shout about,being mainlyorange flavouring crystals, but it 'whetted our whistles' after the long slog up from Headingley on a hot day! Yes! We used to havelovely hot days then! The Juice cost a penny per small glass,whichthe man would swish round in a bowl of muddy looking waterwhen you'd finished and stand it upsidedown on the counter!H&S what?
