    The first "Bennachie" thread broke all OM records; over 20,000 posts, over 1000 pages.

    It featured, amongst other things:

    Geology, Routes, Travel plans, Dodgey poetry, Pet care, Smut, Information Technology, Offshore Weather Reports, Lonely Hearts, Wine, Flaff and Oot's Adventures in Tesco's, Tales of Daring Do, Elusive Hints of Romance and desire and much, much more besides.

    And sometimes we talked about Bennachie too! ;o)

    But it never, ever featured Golf - Thank God ;o)

    But the old bothie was getting a bit untidy; where do you stack 20,000 posts? How do you finde the pearls of wisdom it unboudtably contained (if you looked long enough)?

    So, it's time for a new Bennachie thread. May it be as happy, wide ranging and friendly as it's predecessor.

    And God Bless Scotland ;o)

    At least with this one we won't be cast quite so far back into the mists of time when we edit our posts.

    Pops head around door allowing smells of the breakfast trolley to waft in.

    Could we borrow a cup of sugar please?

    Morning,

    This feels very strange...

    So are we migrating or not? I'd rather not but I will if you will...


    Oh, goats, don't forget goats - the original had plenty of them

    I don't know - posting over here feels a wee bit like having an affair.

    Anyone got the breakfast on here, or shall I nip next door?

    Goats! Yes we must have some. Out the back by the boat shed! (Thanks for the boat shed NNPB!)

    On my way JJ ;o)

    We've had a supply boat. We had eggs at breakfast. And there are apples. And Bannanas.

    All I need now to make my happiness complete is a toilet roll in the Bridge bog 8o(

    < offers Ace a loo roll in exchange for a ripe banana >

    I would like to make an official complaint please.
    There are no 'wet creosote signs' on your boat house and those goats down there gave me furtive looks.

    Does anyone know how to remove creosote from leather, where can I get some goat repellant, what do I do with these rocks and can I have a chill pill please?

    Goat repellant? What a strange concept!!

    You must be in the minority of Bennachiers if you really want to repel goats...

    I liked the high ceilings in the old thread. These new ones are a bit poky.

    And they build them a bit close together - there's no much of a garden, is there?

    I was listening to a tune called 'My 2600' by Captain Funkaho, in the course of which the Captain enumerates various computer games he enjoys sitting up all night to play (I think it's from about 1980). I'm sure he mentions one called 'Goat World'.

    Who's invited to the housewarming. I have to buy John Kilgour a drink as I still feel guilty about snapping at him during the race to 20,000. I've not been myself lately, a bit febrile.
