    Getting back on topic, the Org is boring because virtually no-one posts here any more. Putting the blame on events of many a year ago is an excuse for being lazy. The Org is deid because folk donít post.

    People seemed to stop posting because a few trolled no matter what the topic and then the 'powers that be' closed the thread. Thus punishing all ....

    Or you had the folk that posted a "Does anyone know......" type thread under a completely innocuous title. They could have named the thread title "Does anyone know when Tesco is open till tonight?" But instead, would post some cryptic title. Only when you had opened the thread, was its purpose revealed - Again.....

    Caithness is s"""e, hence C.org being s"""e. Needs no words really. You watch, I'll get a ban for this. Who cares?
    A 1991 Gallup survey indicated that 49 percent of Americans didn't know that white bread is made from wheat.

    I have a few ‘s’ words of my own for Caithness- both for the place and the people. ‘Stunning’, ‘stupendous’, ‘superb’ are three that will do for starters though I’m sure I could easily think of more.
    I feel really sorry for you, 2little2late! Even your title says it all really. Maybe you just need to get out a bit more and open your eyes and look about you. I would suggest a trip up to Duncansby Head. Go and walk along the cliffs, look at the views, the birds, the fantastic wildflowers. Direct your gaze below the lighthouse and maybe you’ll see orca swimming below- they are about up there. As wildlife experiences go, it does not get any better than that and name me one other place (in Scotland or elsewhere) where you can reliably see something like that and not pay one penny for the privilege.
    Ok, so maybe you’re not talking about landscape, wildlife or scenery but Caithness people. Open your eyes and ears and your closed mind! Buy a ‘Groat’ or a ‘Courier’ and you’ll find stories in there of remarkable people doing remarkable things, going the second mile for others and making a difference. Better than that, just speak to your neighbours and you may find that they are the people doing just that. Caithness is full of folk being kind and helpful to others- you just have to look.
    At the end of the day, you just get one crack at this life. If you want to go through it seeing nothing but badness, negativity and the ‘s’ word that you have applied then that is what you will no doubt find and maybe you are finding it so because you yourself are not bothering or giving anything back.

    According to this site, the latest news in 'e Coorier includes a story of a seagull that got stuck in a derelict building in Wick in July 2017. So they let it out. Yup, pretty remarkable, and pretty up to date news reporting by this site.

    And if you find a stolen Scottish flag, Iain of Reay would love to hear from you.

    Orkney? Yes and Shetland to when it comes to it. However, that was not the point. Such a pity you missed the point but trust you have enjoyed your moment of pointless point scoring. Gave me a laugh anyway.

    I wouldnít say the Org is boring, itís just not as lively as it once was, perhaps Facebook and other social media are partly the cause of it. Itís so easy with the apps being readily accessible to post instant thoughts instead of having to log in to a website, and youíll usually get instant replies too; itís different strokes for different folks. I canít remember the last time I looked in on the Org, itís probably about 3 months ago, but itís still handy if I want to find out whatís happening in the county. I see thereís a few hardy souls still trying to keep it upbeat, the former Mrs deW doing her best, and thereís a good supporting cast too so I wouldnít write the site off just yet.
