Thanks a lot for doing this. I think that many of us really liked that forum because it provided us with something Twitter and Facebook didn't (no, I don't agree that one thing replaces the other). However few we were, that place meant something for us, so it's good of you to open up this space so the ones that are interested can go on chatting and discussing about ELO and Jeff Lynne. I hope more guys join.
Now, why doesn't my username start with capital letters?
The best therapy for any problem you might have is playing music with friends.
Oh thank goodness! I never contributed too awful much to the old forum, but I did love to lurk there and see what everyone had to say on the topic of Jeff and ELO. Thanks for making a new one, Horace! I hope it is every bit as successful as its predecessor.
Thanks for the new forum! i really appreciate it, as i'm not on facebook, etc. Was shocked yesterday, that the old one loved board is closed, but happy, that we have a new one now. Great to see so many of you here after just one day, hope more will follow...
Hello, hello... once again. After the relatively abrupt ending of the old forum, it's both shocking and great to see that a new one has been created and populated by familiar members. Thank you to Horace and Queen for this.
... and I'll get around to retrieving that terrifying G'mork avatar in a little while, Herr Helmut. I'd argue that the original one you're using is much more pleasant, though.
A loyal and pesky member of ELO forums since April, 2007.

eloneen: Just got my booster shot (high risk of exposure as a teacher)! I hope it doesn't hit me as hard as dose #2 did, but it would still be worth it!

eloneen: So happy about my booster shot! Still feeling good. I had expectations of curling up in bed, taking Tylenol, and just pushing my way through some unpleasant side effects. What a nice surprise! I have only very mild soreness at the injection site.

Horacewimp: That’s good to hear eloneen, Mrs Wimp has had a message while we were on holiday regarding booking her booster, I’m somewhat further down the list.

eloneen: Horacewimp I hope her experience is as uneventful as mine!

orioles70: we're spending the weekend on a 1000m mountain in the Blue Ridge in Virginia, Fall has arrived with 70 mph gusts and a 25 degree drop in temps, if we're lucky a tree will blow down and make us stay an extra day

Horacewimp: Have a great and safe trip.

eloneen: Enjoy the fall colors! We've said many times that we want to take a "fall colors" trip to the mountains here in NC to take in the breathtaking scenery, but we have mainly gone out that way in spring or summer. Please share photos with us orioles70!

Timeblue: Are you on the trail of the lonesome pine?
Oct 18, 2021 16:14:32 GMT
eloneen: I'm not. I'm in the central part of NC, but there are soooo many pines, so they're not lonesome ...but maybe your question was for orioles70?

orioles70: Timeblue - are you talking about that ancient movie? Never seen it. But we love the mountains. Skiing, hiking, craft breweries in every valley and way more trees than people.

Timeblue: I'm thinking of the Laurel and Hardy song 'The Trail of the Lonesome Pine'

unomusette: Freshly back from a cheeky trip to Malaga, blimey it's cold around here We were swimming in the Med two days ago. Hope I didn't miss much

Horacewimp: Glad you had a good break Uno, did you stay in Malaga if so it’s a lovely City one of our favourites, you can jump on the train and go down the coast to Torremolinos or Fungerola.

unomusette: Yes! We had a brilliant flat with a roof terrace overlooking the cathedral and took that train, to Benalmadena and Torremolinos on the way back. Also walked the Caminito del Rey, what a fantastic place,proper bucket list stuff
