Another year is almost done...

  Forum Editor 11:00 16 Dec 2012

and soon people will start heading off to spend Christmas with friends and relatives. That means it's time for me, on behalf of all of us at PCA, to wish all of you a very happy Christmas and a peaceful New Year.

We're approaching the end of our 12th year here, in the forum, and as ever I find myself wondering where all that time went. Without you all we wouldn't be here of course, and we want to thank you, yet again, for your continued help and support. Those of you who consistently offer help and advice in the various forum areas are amazing - you give freely of your time and expertise, and it's a pleasure working with you. Please keep it up - there are thousands of people out there who have reason to be grateful for what you do.

On a personal note I want to thank the small band of people who patrol the forum areas on a daily basis and notify me about spam posts. You have had a busy year, and I'm very grateful for those emails. There isn't time to acknowledge each one, and this is my chance to say a big thank you.

Our discussions in Speakers Corner don't seem to have set the world right yet, but let's keep trying. We have our ups and downs, but that's to be expected. You're a great bunch of people; please keep posting.

With our very best wishes and thanks,

FE and all at PCA

The same to you FE and all at the Towers. I suspect that like me, most of us are looking forward to longer daylight hours etc. Summer holiday breaks and most of all our troops coming home from Afghanistan and other God forsaken places they shouldn't be.

As they say in dear Auld Ireland "God bless all here".

Let me add my good wishes and compliments of the season to everybody here. We have some robust debates on this forum and disagreement goes with the territory, but by and large we all stay the course and keep coming back for more.

I particularly wish our Forum Editor a happy Christmas, he has to steer a difficult path moderating us all, it's no easy task I'm sure.

May I too pass on the compliments of the season and best wishes for the coming New Year. Thanks to Speakers' Corner for putting up with my Friday Night puzzles and thanks to all who participate, I hope you all enjoy solving them as much as I do preparing them and fielding the responses.

I would also like to wish all at the Towers, FE, lurkers and posters a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

  Forum Editor 13:12 16 Dec 2012


Thank you for your comment. We've crossed swords on more than one occasion, but I have always respected your ability to avoid making it personal. I hope we'll enjoy many more disagreements in the year to come!

Best wishes

Time has indeed passed by and I'm still here for another year!

So to everyone, a very Happy Christmas and a peaceful and healthy New Year.

Merry Christmas Peter, Matt, Simon and all at PCA, and to all the forum members.

Can I add my felicitations to all who inhabit this particular corner of cyberspace. Happy Christmas and wishing you all a Healthy and Peaceful New Year.

All the best to everyone for Christmas and the New Year.
