Thanks very much for the nomination Bags,
I'm very flattered but, all too unfortunately, life is rather too full at the moment to take much of an active part on the Pages, I can't even find the time to start a decent argument :mrgreen:

I think Tom Watson would be a great candidate, he has been with the Pages a long time and he has so much wisdom that he can share with others.
He is a gentleman and a scholar and a pillar in these Pages.

I vote for Tom Watson our special Angel in the Pages


:wink:

:no: :shrug:

this comment was directed at Bags comment regarding my nomination of Debbie.
It is an honor to accept the nomination as I feel it to be one of the more important postions on these pages.

Thank you Debbie for the kind thought.

Tom

Regretfully Buttterflies has declined her nomination. That currently leaves us with only one candidate.
