I haven't really been keeping up with the various threads but I've gotta say that Dr. Plip and IggyWiggy's posts on the other thread are some of the funniest I've read in a long time - a very welcome midweek pick-me-up! Looking forward to meeting up with people down in WSM. I didn't know if anyone would be interested in spending a couple of hours wandering around Bristol on the Sunday morning and checking out the graffiti around town (including the remaining Banksy pieces) but, if so, let me know.
Sounds like a good sun morn to me. Count me in for that def
Cheers. This event and meet up getting better all the time superb.
