  1. Looks like a polite way to greet people, consider me curtseying to all BGO ers, may you all get through this difficult time unscathed.😊
  2. Hello to all - just wondering how people are coping with this scary virus. Our son, daughter in law and grandson will be flying back home to Yellowknife tomorrow and they will be required to self isolate for 14 days as they were on vacation in the States for a week. It is Spring Break here for the schools and it has been extended to 3 weeks. All sorts of leagues and spectators events have been cancelled and people are being warned to stay out of crowds. A humorous situation has been happening at the grocery stores, people are stockpiling toilet paper for reasons known only to them as the illness involves the respiratory system not the digestive system.
  3. Got another strange message in my e-mail from a brendaOO wanting to start up a conversation, another hacker I think.
  4. Please accept my heartfelt condolences, Ragamuffin, I am absolutely shocked to read the news of Cherry Pie's way too soon passing. What an agonizing happening for you and your family. She was an enthusiastic person and I missed both of you so much when you were no longer on the forum. I realize that she had health problems but on Facebook she was always wonderfully enthusiastic about her church life and so excited being a grandmother. I liked the way she was so excited about tennis when her favourite Andy Murray was playing and I always think of her when I watch tennis. It must be heart rending for you and the family and my prayers are with you and also loving thoughts. It is so sad and I hope that you find the comfort and strength you need from friends and family. God bless you. Momac
  5. Hope everyone enjoyed the Christmas season and had a great New Year's Eve - back to 'aild clathes and porridge' now. I guess at the beginning of a new year, also a new decade, there might be the tendency to feel a bit nostalgic for times gone by. I’m reading a book set in 1940’s Liverpool, England just after WWII and the landlady of a pub near the docks is trying to get the customers to go home as she wants to listen to Valentine Dyall in the BBC program “The Man In Black on the wireless. Gosh, did that ever take me back, Mum and I used to listen to that each week, the program was popular and must have been on the radio for quite a while. Felt a bit of a tug at my heart, a bit of my childhood. The name of the program was Appointment with Fear. Most of you are probably a bit too young maybe to remember the program but Mum and I enjoyed our little dose of fear each week. 💀
  6. I got the message yesterday and was puzzled because it was sent under the banner headline of BGO but had a 'no reply' message at the top. It said there were two other people involved in the conversation. The way it was worded I thought maybe English was not the first language of the person posting.
  7. Is it possible that someone hacked into BGO as I got a message from a Miss Brenda wanting to have a conversation with me, sent in an ‘no return’ message under the BGO heading?
  8. Hi Tag - good to see you and glad that you are doing o.k. I was on a Jack Reacher kick a few years ago but moved on to other writers. I really enjoyed all the earlier books and looked forward to the most recent book in the Autumn. Now I seem to be lodged in WWll historical/romantic and often quite awful tragedies to do with the blitz. Wishing you all the best for the festive season.
  9. Hello Madeleine and Brightphoebus, good to hear from you, hope your weather improves to give you nice winter weather Madeleine. Dave has some trouble now with forgetfulness and sometimes gets in a snit about things which never bothered him before. He used to be so quiet and now is quite different. It gets upsetting and probably me not being a very patient person it leads to arguments. If I could just remember that no good comes of arguing - especially when it is a nonsensical subject.😏 Wishing Mr. Meg a return to good health and also Binker who had some health concerns recently, good wishes to all of us BGOers.
  10. Good to hear from you Luna. The group read sounds interesting. I haven’t been reading much current literature, tried to read Louise Penny’’s latest book but got bogged down and haven’t managed to pick up the thread of it again. Have lost my taste for police procedurals for the moment and into the romantic historical boks although some of those can be quite graphic. Dave is very forgetful now and it’s kind of disturbing, however, not much can be done about it.This year has not been great for us and am sorry to hear that Meg and Mr. Meg have had a rough time as well, wishing you a better year coming up Meg. Stay well Luna.
  11. It has been a while since I dropped in but have been thinking about BGO, just seems as hough we have had lots of arranging for household stuff, arranging for a replacement mattress, much negotiating, getting the flower gardens planted with Spring bulbs (garden folk did that) arranging for changes to the bedroom, buying a snowblower online when we had a surprise fall of snow, and sundry other household matters, but I have been doing some reading. I’ve been enjoying Rita Bradshaw who writes romantic historical novels, many of them, and each one I’ve found interesting, lots of drama, lots of insight into the class divisions, some of it pretty horrible. So glad that husbands are not afforded by law the leeway to treat their wives with brutality now although it still goes on today. I hope everyone is well and enjoying late Autumn and early winter.
  12. Good for you Luna, will have another go but maybe fail in the questions as my knowledge is somewhat lacking as to specific locations in Glasgow as I left there when I was 9😏. However will do my best.
  13. Glad you were safe Binker. discovered a forum by accident but was unable to join so far as the password requirement was really specific about content. Also my geography was spotty re answers to the protection from.spam bots. The forum I’m sure has lots of information about Glasgow and surrounds and I would like to access. The forum is The Hidden Glasgow Forums. I wondered if there was anyone from BGO who was on this forum.
  14. Good heavens Binker, that sounds like a biggie. I hope you are feeling so much better now, and not doing too much too soon. Have noted your posts on Facebook so you must have a strong constitution to make a good recovery. Stay well and hope the weather is mild enough to enjoy sitting under that marvellous tree with a good book. All the best. 👍
  15. It is a bit cold here, real Autumn weather and lots of torrential rain two days ago really damaged the flower beds. Was reading Louise Penny’s latest book A Better Man, featuring Inspector Gamache of the Quebecois Surete, should be accents in there but don’t know how to access them. The book started off well and then seemed to stall a bit or maybe sag so have left it for the moment. It has been on the best seller list so maybe it’s me not the book. i hope all BGO folk are well and haven’t been subjected to the gale force winds I was reading about?
