We have a severely autistic grandson so we learnt Makaton as that's how he interacts with people. Currently moving on to BSL.
Mr Tumble was so annoying but he does the trick at getting kids /adults to learn it.

Favourite Arabic word ..... imshi

Our middle son has a disability, we learn BSL together, he's far better as he uses it at his place of education.
Wonderful, I watch in awe.

No, it's great, well done Sara, i should be in my element here with all the shyte i have running aloof in my heed,

I've also wwondered how people manage to do that quoting in another place thingymebob, i was dead chuffed when i learned how to do the you tube thing correcting.

On a sidenote, where's Victor vanished to after our first win, was enjoying his company?

Too many guitars to fix Vic?

figured it out, quote in the original thread, takes you to the reply box. Cut the whole post, go to the thread needed for the quote and paste

Then add your bit and post

My experience of football forums is that I spend most of my time talking about music and general non-football shizzle. There's only so much you can say about Jesse Marsch's involvement with the Trump empire, after all.

And then the football info and goss is on hand when you need it... win/ win.

Bowls at Scalby just outside Scarborough this evening.

Was 30 degrees at the Cranswick club when I popped in earlier this afternoon.

Thankfully 20 degrees is forecasted for tonight :sun:

Nice pub/restaurant in Scalby, Jill & I stayed there for a weekend a few years ago, posh, pricey but excellent & recommended.

Agreed... multi quotes would be useful, and the ability to only quote a section of a post instead of the whole lot.

Ah, well done... I'll give it a go when I've cooled down a bit, and had a glass of wine.
