I joined Fun partly because of the name and I happened to drop onto a thread that was way off-topic and the members were having a laugh, I soon found out that it was very cliquey so I came on here and found it was a more serious site but there was fun to be had so I stayed, then I wound down on here to focus on trying to get Owners to be a bit livelier, a task too far for me, and when it started getting weird I stood down, big mistake, but it's done now, and I do look in once in a blue moon.

But I feel if the OP wants answers they will come back and see, but most I think go to other forums and bye-bye or they figure it out, but still bye-bye, we're not so far up our own backsides on here that we can't have a bit of fun, if we are I won't be here for long.

Forums that don't allow off topic don't seem to last very long.

I am on a self building forum. As you can imagine with builders it does get a bit lively at times but it is easy to just bring it back to topic by re phrasing the original question or saying something like - "back to the topic....."
Jean, I have witnessed your Irish welcome several times to newcomers

I could live here for a whole century and never get used to the German welcome of shaking hands or as they do now, touch elbows, hello with a smile goes for me.

Yes. Is that peculiar to the old East?

We spent some time beside a workplace in Furstenwalde a while back and saw the workers, there were six or so of them, arriving each morning. Without fail every one of the shook hands with all the rest.

Odd from our perspective and yet very mannerly.

Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.

I tend to shake as we meet and again when we depart if the intervening time was pleasant, don't see a problem as I sanitize often.

When charter fishing we would shake hands with those we hadn't seen for some time, the regulars on board would just say "Hi".
