I know it's a big shout - but a telephone call prompted me to post this ( yes you Paul - you had some really good insights)
To all of those who have now found themselves settled here - or well on the way.
PLEASE post about how you are doing now.I know you are getting on with your lives and don't need the forum as much.After many calls and chats with people who have arrived over the last few years I know there are many happy settlers here. Come on - pop a post in and tell us about it!!
A nice "pay it forward" :):)
To those who I know - and often meet in Dan Murphy's - NUDGE,NUDGE!
It would redress the balance a little.
When people are unsure if they have made the right move they will come back into or join the forum.It is only natural and not a criticism by me - just an observation.
Those who have settled happily in general kind of "fade away" and get on with it.
Bad news and gossip do always seem to make the headlines in any media - C'mon let's hear some good stories for once - it would be helpful to others!
NB - please ,no arguments/sniping/ negative posts - seems to be enough of that already.
To the cynics - no ulterior motive,we just need to see a balanced view for the benefit of those making a huge decision!
