    I believe that was his significant other.

    Naturally slow, I'm afraid. The best of us got killed off supporting you people in 3 major wars.

    I think we need a diversionary tactic before we have a fraternal war.

    I've had no response from email at that address, but I have tracked him down on Facebook.

    I don't have a FB account , however , and since I don't want to 'out' him on the forum ,if another forum member contacts me via PM , I'll pass on the link.

    Hi Bill,
    Sent you a pm along with an email contact. I don't use Facebook much, but I can send a contact message to Adama and see if he'll respond (ideally to this thread).

    [Edit: contact with Bill made, will reach out to Adam]

    Well, I've tried too. As Adam and I aren't already "friends" on FB, I can't message him without first becoming so. And a Friend Request doesn't seem to allow you to append a note saying WHY you want to be friends, so my attempt may be dismissed (as I myself ignore most FR's where I don't already know the person).

    Soooo - if anyone reading is already Adam's friend on FB please try reaching out yourself, but I imagine you would have done so already...

    Can you see any posts he's made?

    I checked his page, and his "Timeline" shows a last update of April 2017. Since I'm not a friend yet I have no idea if there's a deeper-level page that shows a broader range of posts, perhaps more current.

    As I mentioned to Bill in a pm, there's another person with the same last name that came up as a friend suggestions as I was checking things, it seems reasonable that it's a relative. If I hear nothing from Adam in the next few days I may try reaching out to this person, but it may be the same issue of having to send a FR first, without context.

    Do you have a phone number? I would call that if you PM it.

    Slight correction, you can send him a message, but it will go to a message requests folder, where he can decide whether he wants to view it, or mark it as spam.

    They make an exceptionally rich brown gravy. But that about it. More meat on one whistle-pig than a whole mess of squirrel.

    Even that went out of favour, .22 "Gallery shorts" went costly about the same time we got electricity to the house and could afford shoes all 12 months of the year.

    Yah need to be careful even handling and preparing them. Poor divils carry a load of parasites and viruses.

    Not voluntarily, that's just the lot in life of a free-range tree-rat. They just play the cards they are dealt and f**k like only a rodent CAN f**k, so there ain't really much of a shortage.

    Not even on the internet.

    I thought for sure as a person with Chinasperience, you'd get the joke

    I have searched all over to find contact details,no luck.
    I can get info on Facebook but I am not on that and have no intention to join.

    Just saw this. I didn't see how to do it, but I'm really not a FB user (don't like the BS that's endemic on that site), so not a surprise.

    No, and I'd think that any of our Brit members who did have it would have made the call already.

    I guess I'm going to keep hoping he's OK, and just voluntarily off PM.
