Hi Trev - welcome to the forum
Very envious of your New Zealand trip!
Check out the DIY section for some great ways to save some money so you can obsess without worry of breaking the bank!
"Love the earth and the sun and the animals, despise riches, stand up for the stupid and crazy, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God.
Have patience and indulgence towards people, re-examine all you have been told in school or church or in any book,
dismiss whatever insults your own soul.
This love above all love has leisure and expanse."
You will fit right in here with your 'Illness'. Most of us here are quite sick and lots have it terminally.
Welcome to HF.
It's been said before by others in one or the other welcome-thread -- the best way to say welcome:
Welcome to the madness!
Welcome from the US Trev!
Enjoy the elevation
Come on, seriously? I have a good name?
Yours is way better, puts a strange image into my head.....some weird creature, half frog, half donkey!
Not sure which way round is funnier though, front frog half or back frog half
Cheers though and thanks everyone for the very warm welcome!
