An update would be good, too, so any farewell wishes will make sense.  Smile

Just which parts of the words "Nancy Wake RIP" are unclear and don't make sense? My wizzley is not an obituary. However a notification of her death has been added at the end.

Well, the wizzle does say ' She will soon be 99 years old.' right in the first paragraph, which strongly suggests she might still make it (if she didn't).

 Before I leave this topic, and indeed, before I leave Wizzley, I wish to state that my original post was announcing the death of Nancy Wake - hence the title of the post: "Nancy Wake RIP".

I invited forum readers to offer sentiments, and was not looking for advice on how to "ramp-up" the page - a page which was a testament - not a testimonial - to a brave and dignified woman.

If I wanted technical advice, I would have posted it in the relevant forum. I'm saddened that the two previous respondents did not offer sentiments, but chose instead to comment (rather churlishly) upon my delivery.

I'm saddened even more that my post did not generate any other interest, which indicates that either the forums here are sterile or that my presence or my subject matter warrants little attention.

In any event it has demonstrated that I should not allow Wizzley to host my writings.  Perhaps I should have made more light hearted and whimsical pages - pages which lean to more commercial intent - just to test the water - but we live and learn.

I have concluded that Wizzley and I are not compatible.

Consequently I will not be making anymore Wizzleys - I leave you with two commendable "100's". They are not a gift - think of them as a short term loan - until I find a more suitable platform for them.

I trust you to look after them in the meantime.

Thank you for inviting me - and although I can sometimes be a difficult guest, I do my best to please - but I'm also very particular about the company I keep. No hard feeling by the way!

Good luck and may I say that it has been an interesting experience.

It's really simple, m'friend: you offered us the opportunity to pay our respects at your Wizzley.

Your Wizzley didn't yet include the info on Ms. Wake's passing, hence my friendly reminder.

Your question about "which parts of...RIP are unclear..." is irrelevant, because these "parts" appear only in the title of this thread, not in your article.

I remember from the old Squidoo days...you have a knack for turning a harmless little skeeter into a mastodon on steroids. Back then it bothered me, at times. Today I find it rather amusing and entertaining. 

So I shall miss you. Also because I like and respect you as a writer.

It's your call, of course. (And I hope you will stay.)

In any case -

Farewell, old Bard.

You've got me fair sussed! I'm infuriated yet impressed with your response. You took the rug from under me! Fair do's!

Of course I will never leave you! How could I after all our past banter?

I like you Chef - I don't love you - but I like you - indeed I tolerate you. I think you're a jolly decent chap -  and that is a rare accolade! My love for all things Germanic may produce a Wizzley about Bierwurst.

I've always been an admirer of mainland Europe's ability to produce great cured meat - Spain have their chorizo and Italy have their salami.

But Germany has the mighty sausage. The sausage which shafted Hadrian!  ;)

So pleased to see two blokes in whom I hold in the highest affection and esteem having a bit of a spat in my absence from here (thanks to two very high maintenance teenaged girls still on holiday from school) , actually throwing punches and then making up

Seeing this has just reminded me how much I miss the forums of the past and all the old jolly, wee banter, misconceptions and down right temper tantrums. Yell I might just come here after all if they remain lively. Jolly pleased to see the tolerance old chap and I can also say I like old chefkeem and I always have and you too you old rascal. Regrettably being a man and not otherwise inclined I can't say I love you both, although indeed I do.Surprised

Now where we? Nancy Wake, sausages, poms or krauts? Ooooooooops my bad.

Looking at my last comment, it may read that I was pleased to see them throwing punches - oops!! Most definitely not to see them doing than, but VERY pleased to see them making up Kiss
