Easy solution to te tough decision: Have her reception at the meet! (assuming of course that you survive even mentioning something like that to her - nerves tend to be frayed shortly before weddings!) :D

Hi Mooncat, and welcome! I go boxing with my three and my youngest is now 5 1/2, so I know how difficult it can be. I used to try and get onto the moor by myself at every available opportunity, then run about like a mad hare trying to find boxes and noting their location. Then when I took my kids ou...

Hi Tina, I was out today - started at the Plume, went to Nun's Cross, the Duck's Pool, then Chile's Cross and back again. Was a gorgeous day out! I won't be able to get onto the moor over the weekend as it is my daughter's birthday and she's having a sleep-over party! Guess I'll be playing waiter to...

Julian, personally I avoid using Google check-out like the plague! That company is as close to an evil empire as the world has seen! They track your web activity, the psy-profile you and now they're collecting and STORING people's financial data! Remember, this is the same company that co-operates w...

I found an obvious tarveller quite recently - it was in a hybrid geocache, with instructions to move it to another geocache somewhere on Dartmoor, which I did.

Crumbs - just BUY a catalogue, and scan each page using OCR (Optical Character Resolution) software, then tidy it up and have somebody proofread it.

See, Nik, that's where personal choice comes into it:
I'd much rather have a crudely hacked but certainly unique stamp than a well-made but generic off-the-shelf stamp.

At least the person that "crudely hacked" the rubber put in some effort.

Nik, of course everybody's entitled to their own opinion. Even as a newbie I would still prefer not to have some off-the-shelf stamp in a letterbox, and I think virtually everybody would feel that way. Still, The Stationary Traveller made a statement about the proliferation of rubbish designs. Now h...

Re: Policing letterboxers

The proliferation of roadside boxes or rubbish designs did not help. I hate to say this, but I take exception to that statement. Perhaps you can try and qualify it with detail of what (to your opinion) qualifies a design as rubbish or not? Regardless of when whomever started boxing, please, PLEASE ...

What about doing the ancient Maltern Way? Plenty of boxes around and people can choose how much of it to do?

Just a thought!

Once upon a time (and not very long ago, mind you) it was socially acceptable to tell racist, sexist or homophobic jokes. Our attitudes were changed by information, or rather a concerted information campaign, orchestrated often at great personal cost by the people that were being discriminated again...
