Default Merry Christmas

As all the best newspapers say at this time of year.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all our readers.

It's business as usual in the UK – London's fogged in - flights cut by half, road chaos, people panic buying for that last minute gift.

Come on 2007!!!

Best Wishes


Doug

Merry Christmas - I always look at your log on name and wonder whether u realise that Douglas is the capital of the Isle of Man (a very independant island of the UK (just off Liverpool))

Hi Peter

Merry Christmas to you.

I'm originally from Wales, Penarth a small town outside of Cardiff, but I now reside in Northamptonshire with my wife Carole and teenage son Rory.

I got the name dogmandouglas because at one time we had 5 Irish Red Setters and I could be seen at odd hours of the day walking the dogs.

Sadly time has taken its toll and we are left with 2 dogs at present.

But my wife being a dog fantatic has bought a Chinese crested dog (a toy breed) - its one of those dogs which is bald apart from a few tuft of hair here and there.

And as I'm a rather big chap I dont take this dog for a walk (fear of comments?) and to top it all she's called it Elvis!

Merry Christmas everyone.

Hi Peter

I now work as an applemac operator for a large printing company in Northampton.

When we lived in Wales, we used to take the dogs down to Barry Island in the winter months and run them on the sandy beach.

We rarely get to the beach with the dogs these days because I don't think we could get any further from a beach being in Northampton.

My first post here! And it's good to see some other Brits aboard, although I'm so far north that Yorkshire is south... I'm not sure what this thread has to do with print design and layout! Hope everyone had a good Christmas and as a semi-pro DTPer with just one book under my belt - a steep learning curve, that - and another one in the pipeline, I may well be wanting to pick some brains here.

All the best for 2007!

Nice to see you. We have lots (and lots!) of Brits, some of our wittiest members (and — save the Aussies — earliest rising). Glad to have you join us.

And you are right — this thread is not exactly on topic. We shall move it.

And Happy New Year to you, too.

Thank you for the kind welcome, Kathleen. I'll try and keep up the reputation for Brit wit!
