Here you go, Frecks. A new Chat Thread.

Thanks Kismet. Are you enjoying Strictly? I was sad to see Anton go out on the first night but I could not stand his partner.

I'm a little frustrated by Strictly as I don't think there are enough bad dancers this year and I'm going to lose lots of people I like and who have potential before I'm ready for them to go simply because there is no one worse.

Who are you keen on this year?

I think Kate Silverton is doing very well for an older dancer. I love Danny John Jules too. I agree there are too many really good dancers this year. I did not like Lee Ryan so I was glad when he went out last week. The young girls are all excellent. I loved the Dirty Dancing routine it was nearly as good as the film version.

Danny John Jules is our favourite, too. We love how much Kate Silverton is enjoying herself and are rather stunned by Dr Ranj. We also have a sneaky liking for Faye from Steps.

We covered a lot of ground on the old Chat thread. It was rather fun.

If all my current posts were added to the ones on the old forum, I'd be an Air Marshal like Fairblue, now. Just saying. I'm not bitter or twisted or anything.

Yes the posts are mounting up very quickly. No doubt they will slow down when you have finished re-posting.

It will depend on (a) when I get tired of reposting and (b) when I have to do other things.

I liked your analogy, Frecks, of the shipwreck and the island. It's very apt. And I love how supportive we all are when another member drifts ashore.

If you need an excuse to buy more books, or alternatively, to feel less guilty about having a house full of books:

That sounds like a fascinating and painstaking project. I would be interested to know what you think of it.

I loved Danny John Jules on Strictly last night. Such a good jive and he looked great in his flying helmet. He could very easily join Biggles and the team :lol:
