    Woollen tights should work best for gearing ratios. Especially ribbed ones.

    I remember cold winter mornings on the odd occasion I went to school. Ribbed woollen tights were fashion torture to a teenager but they stopped my legs turning bright red.

    Surely couldn't be any worse fashion torture than donning a long black costume/dress/habit/frock (what is the technical term for a witches attire?) and a pointy hat?

    Indeedy. Thatís one of the reasons for not conforming.

    Our attire has more in common with an episode of Loose Women.

I've looked a lot of times over the last few weeks at the number of folk viewing the forum. The unregistered users runs to hundreds - Most are probably spam bots. But there can be a dozen or 2 logged in users. When you look at when they last posted, it was years ago.

    Over this side o' 'e watter, there are quite a few organisations struggling with community engagement - Stromness Shopping Week being one example. Plenty folk who will attend the events, but no-one who wants to get involved in the organising of them. Still going ahead this year, but with dire warnings for the future if more do not step up to the plate. This place is the same - Plenty of "followers", but very few that seem willing to pitch anything in.

    I fear the earlier prophecies are accurate. The place is doomed to a lingering death, punctuated only by folk logging in to see if there is any new "craic", only to log out again when they find there isn't.

    Its starting to look like a weekend of sorcery apprenticeship at a remote, derelict Caithness hunting lodge might be more fun after all!

    Frankly it is Crayola and Orcadian that are keeping the place going. You could start your own site ... Moderation ... or lack of it has killed things stone dead.

    Not so boring in the 'Politics' section. Dozy is livening it up with a few random comments :-)

    Isn't necromancy the art of communicating with the dead ('e orgers) to divine the future (the total death of 'e org due to lack of use)?

    Thank goodness it was necromancy. My mum read it as 'necrophilia'.
