Our good friend Laxman (Phil) has informed me that he recently sadly lost his mother so he's not been posting here for a few days.

Just want to let him know we're thinking of him and sending condolences.

Yeah, thoughts going out to Lax at this sad time.
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

My condolences, mate, so sorry to hear of this.
Authority is supposedly grounded in wisdom, but I could see from a very early age that authority was only a system of control and it didn't have any inherent wisdom. I quickly realised that you either became a power or you were crushed

Thank you all so much, that means a lot and brought a tear to my eye. I messaged Marky to let him know but I didn’t expect him to be so kind as to do this for me. Thinking about it now, of course he would, we have an amazing community.

I should add that Deny has been brilliant, he has been helping me out with tips on what to sort out and prioritise on the financials etc plus just been there as support. Truly incredible and I can’t thank him enough, my Dad was stressing about that side of things but now isn’t bothered because he knows we have it all under control.

I will maybe add some details at some point, but I will just say for now that my Dad was a major worry for us after we got the news about Mum, but I think he is going to be OK. Neither my brother nor I slept over last night, at his request, so hopefully another little step forward.

Sorting through papers and old photos etc is quite therapeutic. Last night we found a full album of postcards from WW1 to and from my Grandad. Amazing to see and read.

Finding photos that you haven’t seen for ages is nice. This one made my Dad a bit upset, but in a good way. As he said, she really was beautiful.

I would like to think that my Mum did a great job bringing us up to behave in the right way. Uncle Joe Strummer clearly did a great job on you lot too.

Love to all.

Phil x
