Patience will be a virtue, as this will not be in real time, but as & when time allows. SORRY

The Invisible ‘Comments’ on our Blog

As many of our regular visitors & contributors will be aware, your comments are no longer displaying as expected. We are aware of this & working overcome the problem.

Thus far it appears that a recent upgrade to WordPress, that no longer supports certain elements of the version of PHP we are running, may well be the reason.

In the next day or so as time allows we shall attempt to resolve the issue or issues. It may be that the current incarnation of our site is ‘life expired’. We had intended to have a new version complete & running by now. However the dreaded virus has prevented our existing electronic elf from doing this.

Watch this space for more news soon.

Caveat Emptor – Buyer Beware!

We have had rather sad advice regarding a collector/seller in Australia.

We received the following letter from one of our members.

We have removed  identifying details, but none the less be aware that this may happen to any of us.

Sadly as many of you will be aware, this is not confined to the southern hemisphere.

We have received many reports of similar or worse behavior here in the UK.
