Quite agree!  Kendal and the South Lakes is a great venue for a show as the local population is rich with retired professionals, which seems to be a strongly represented demographic within the SRGC/AGS. Will be interesting to see how many visitors we get through the door. Lots of people have told me they will see me there so I, also, have a good feeling about this show.

A chum here in Aberdeen, Helen Greenwood (Darren and Susan may know her from Discussion Weekends) is heading down to Kendal for  the weekend so she can attend the show.  She's even looked out her life membership card so she can prove her id!

Locating membership cards can be a problem, especially if they were put away carefully. 
Maybe for life membership the SRGC might consider a tattoo option ;) ;D

I don't think that Council would approve that - the aim is to provide pleasure and education, not pain - on the other hand - finger-printing may be an alternative.......  ;)

My chum is a life member of so many organisations she  could end up with more tattoos than a footballer or pop star...... ::) :P

Here's a moral question..........would it be appropriate to have a Caesar Salad for lunch?

Isn't bleeding edge a step beyond cutting edge?  Out in front anyway ;D

Why, you slimming or something? You could be in for a yellow card and a final warning though.

... But would it sit comfortably with the beef and ale pie, chips and double sticky toffee pudding? ;D
