    Its been a while

    Hello sir's, not had my head wet in 10 years but im looking to get back into it in the near post pandemic future. I'll be asking a few stupid questions, looking for kit (twin set, DS4 regs, decent donut etc etc) and asking more stupid questions. If ive missed anything important in the last 10 years feel free to bring me up to date.
    Cheers, Sean

    Er, let's see. The UK has left Europe, the world is suffering a pandemic, the Tories have got in again, Fullers have sold out to a Japanese company, Debenhams, Top shop and Burtons have gone down the pan (the shop not the beer) China is accused of oppressing Muslims, North Korea has the bomb, Russia is bumping of dissidents and the USA had a brief but scary time with Donald Trump as president. Welcome back from wherever you have been.

    Welcome
    A quick primer:

    A Pony will kill you
    Deep Stops are bad for you
    Slat wall is a broken business model
    The jury is out on Re breathers unless many PDFs can be produced (this changes nothing)
    Looking after other peoples cats can get you an undeserved reputation

    ermmm that should do you for now.

    PS Do we still do lists?

    This will require the effort of 15 members with conflicting views who will be along shortly
