    Default Blooming heck ! I feel really good about that

    It's not often I get carried away, but....


    I posted here yesterday for some ideas to get in touch with a past workmate.
    Well I followed it all through and finally got to speak to the guy today, (to offer him a job)

    So, I went through a chain of five dudes, and EVERY one of them said the same thing. 'If you are organising a christmas do, count me in'

    so we will do it. Knutsford in a week. But its such a heartwarming thing to happen, these guys hardly know the next one in the chain, One of them has moved out of IT altogether.

    It restores my faith a bit

    Did it involve a street corner and a "Hello Sailor" badge? Nope, didn't think so.

    I've found quite a few people over the last few years, so c'mon - spill the beans.

    But it's great that all these people are keen on meeting.

    I'll tell you what it is zippy - They are obviously thinking about ' the good old days'

    maybe everyone thinks that ten yeas ago was the good old days
