    Dear All,

    Whilst I do not agree with much I have read on this site, I appreciate that we all have different views which need challenging from time to time (including mine!).

    Thank you for not blocking my replies or banning me.

    My experiences have hardened me to those views I believe are unrealistic, and indeed, in many circumstances, can be disastrous.

    Merry Christmas and a happy new years to you all.

    May your God or Gods, go with you.

    Thank you for you and your contributors’ articles over the course of the year. Makes a difference to have your thoughts articulated, which is often what happens when I read stuff on here and have not managed to put into my own words. Have a well earned break!
