Lots of problems with the server Papa - Mich has been working on it flat out - each time he fixed it , it went down again. Hopefully it will be OK this time, however I see some of the most recent posts have disappeared.

I know it won’t suit everybody but when there is a problem with the site the BCF Facebook page is a good place to check on what’s happening.
Personally I believe that the problems have been a reminder of how lucky we are to have opted to pay for site maintenance and repair as it took an expert a fair time to sort out. I’m sure that the admins could have got it sorted in the end but I guess that the site would have been down for a very long time if that had been necessary.

Not a fool at all Facebook is VERY insecure, and I value my personal security and safety.
Facebook has caused me serious problems in the past without me ever having joined it.
A fair number of people I know will not use Facebook for personal security reasons.

I would love to observe someone crapping the prickly porcupine backwards, the mind boggles at the thought of it. Would have to be a bugger to swallow to start with, maybe with some cod liver oil to help it along, and what about the poor creature, has anyone given a thought for it?
