No, Gary, I am not a BV mole, I've had my issues with BV in other areas, but neither was I on drugs in 2004, as you so charmingly imply:(whatever trip you were on!). Please remember: "people are entitled to their opinion and others can disagree but don't need to have a go at the other".
I am simply someone who sees the glass as half full, not half empty.
A tip I learned recently which may help jucwitchypoo and others communicate in the cheery positive (glass half full) manner they intend:
according to email etiquette we should not to use capitals as it APPEARS THAT YOU ARE SHOUTING AT THE READERS.
Please accept my apology for the 'BV mole' and 'whatever trip' comments - inappropriate and unsuccessful attempts at humour.
Don't worry about it too much Garry. Last years' GVBR forum was a disaster in terms of "open freeminded, freespeech" discussions. Many people in that forum took offence to everyone and anyone saying something they did not agree to. In the end the FFP meetings, and parties never eventuated and everyone rode solo - almost. I hope this year people will be more tolerant of views, opinions and BV food! Personally the food was excellent and it was obvious to me that many have not travelled the world much because compared to some foods overseas, we had a King's banquet and it was nutricious. Queues are another matter! hehehe
