I joined BCB about 10 years ago - almost exactly in fact but I haven't been here for quite a while. Hopefully I'm allowed back.

I'm 50 - two lovely kids, lovely wife, two lovely dogs, lovely house etc. (shit car though) I work in a pupil referral unit, live in Cambridge.

I've been using twitter a bit recently but it's too emotionally draining - I'd prefer to read opinions that are at least based on fact!

Anyway, hello everyone...

I think it was Manny, Moe & Jack you were drawn to! And why not?

I made a tactical error and got booted out in the third :(

I was an original Doyen (meaning that I was at the first jolly up I think). I've been lurking very occasionally for some years and I may be back sporadically but in truth I am nowhere near as obsessed with music as some of the people on here. I often feel like an interloper.

I am amazed that it is still a going concern. How is Jethro by the way? We owe all this to him... And Mojo's poor Internet connection speeds back in the day.

Hey Cheif. Nice to see you. I have just recently come back myself, as have a few others.

Regarding music, I'm very much into local music here, so would be of no interest on this site. That's why I'm always in Nextdoorland. Love the peeps.

And neither do you. :P

I unfriended you on Facebook not because I didn’t like your posts on Scottish Independece. I unfriended you because of your steadfast refusal to even consider any opinion ... and indeed facts ... that didn’t meet with your bigoted view of the world. You used to constantly demand other people gave proof of their facts and figures whilst blindly refusing to back up any of your own rants.

But most of all Joe, I unfriended you because you brought it down to personal insults and abuse. And I just couldn’t be arsed anymore.
