no chance of catching up the last 30 pages of this Shed that have been posted since I was last on and able to read some! So if anything highly
important has happened, someone please let me know.
Now just a few quick replies from this page:

re-visiting pubs doesn't sound too bad, actually. In fact, I am so tempted to do a trip over to Scotland once our housing things are all settled
around mid next year. My wife has always wanted to go, and it's decades since I was there last. So, might be asking you to guide us around a few pubs.

Hey there, Chooch,
I'm always fascinated by the railways pics and related stories you post. And you're so good with your camera/s! Keep 'em coming!

yes, it's pretty much like Night said. Back in the old days on ATS (I'm talking 8 or 9 years ago or thereabouts, you needed writer status to start a
thread in the Writer's forum. I recall writing to one of the supers who was helping to run it back then and she kindly gave it to me. But more
recently, as ATS's membership has grown and grown, it's usually been given to those who have won a writers' competition. However, that is not
essential and there have been times when ATS members have been given writer status without that.
The "six month" proviso is a fairly general one, that also applies to eg promoting your own website/book/products etc via your signature, or starting
threads about them. Generally speaking, provided your website (etc) is not in direct competition with ATS, then after you have been a "member in good
standing" for six months, you can write to the owners and ask permission.
If you need help or advice with anything re ATS, please feel free to write to me via PM. I am not on here so much these days as I am sorting out some
things in real life, but I log in whenever I have the chance and always check my messages.
Alternatively, just write to any ATS moderator -- as you
have done before.

I have missed so much of your story, and all the ones by other members as well. I'm looking forward to catching up on them when I have the time.
To anyone I've missed: my apologies! I'm pushed for time as on top of everything else, I have a 25-page translation to read and edit -- and they need
it back tomorrow! So, I'll have to bail out for some hours and will try to get back on here again this evening (my time). I really miss being on here
but sometimes in life we just have to prioritize.
