It seems Hadleigh is a very long way for most of us, but that's not what I was getting at. The active forum members are widely spread geographically, as you have pointed out, and we all have different tastes in music.
I saw the word "French" in the thread title, and when the OP hadn't received any replies by the end of the day it was posted I attempted to console him with my version of humour, which I think I'm finally beginning to appreciate is not shared by many other forum members. I was implying that we were two of a kind in that we had put on posts which nobody appeared to have much interest in, due to the title header. Unfortunately I also capitalised on the word "folk" which I shouldn't have.
I know that the forum caters for loads of different styles and some of us form distinct minorities. I nearly said "minority groups", but in my case I don't think there are enough to form a group! I sometimes tend to forget that the forum is not full of French and Italian musette enthusiasts, then wonder why some of my posts attract hardly any interest. With the encouragement of other members, I have learned to live with that. I now simply put on the posts in the off chance they may be of interest to somebody, and if they aren't, too bad.
My dour Lanarkshire humour has often got me into trouble in the past. We are negative about everything, but try and make light of it. That's all I was attempting to do here, and if I have upset the applecart (again) I am sorry. I promise to put all the apples back into the cart, just as long as I don't have to travel all the way to Hadleigh to do it!
