    hi, all,
    many thanks to all for a very warm welcome
    sorry for not responding earlier, one i am not very tech savvy and working on work computer is more than enough for me.
    tried responding from my phone but couldn't cope with it so gave up.
    so this morning gloomy morning decided to log in to my home pc.

    i chose escort as my username because ford escort mark 1 was my 1st car

    i am looking to join a coffee morning with like minded people on line for regular catch ups as this would be easier for me to talk rather than type.

    apologies for the war and peace

    everyone have a great day
