Thank you so much for your caring. Pat, the Anne Perry message board is pre-programmed not to accept certain or offensive language, advertising, websites, etc. so the webmasters for All Readers don't have to read every message, esp. since they maintain quite a number of message boards for the different book genres. Wendy, do you watch the BBC-A much? That series that Derrick mentioned starts Monday - it's about a cop who, in 2005, somehow finds himself back in the 1970's.

Hay A M, hope things are going good. I thought Derrick was the boss. How in the world do they have the time to read all our messages?

Hi A.M. Am sending you a warm, tight hug and all the good thoughts that I can. Take care.

Just popping in to say "hello" before my next treatment. I hope all is well with everyone. Derrick, the tv series that you mentioned will premiere here on the BBC-America on Monday, July 24th at 10 PM. It's entitled "Life on Mars". I love a number of the police/detective programs on the BBCA. It's always interesting to see how Hollywood fails when they try to remake British programs. The Anne Perry message board that we post to is overseen by All Readers and is unfortunately subject to the myriad foibles of the Internet.

Derrick, I thought you were the one who was in charge of the borad. Do you have any idea who could be messing with the board?

Yes, and imagine how it must have been to wear corsettes and hoops! When I was little I had a red snowsuit and when it got wet I probably weighed an extra 25 kilos! (Wrong season but still shows how much nicer clothes are today. - Well I guess that is a matter of opinion too.) I'm a little concerned that the site may be being monitored more than I first realized. I had tried to send messages before and it would not send but at least I got a message. The times lately that I know something hasn't gone through I haven't received anything. It almost appears that the message has been blocked and I can't back to my previous page. Don't know enough about computers to see where/how this could be happening. Will keep trying as I do love to "talk"! Enjoy the day. We've been quite warm here too (30-30 C) but today's supposed to be a balmy 25!

A quite high proportion of the messages I type don't reach the board. There seems to be some sort of censorship, but guess it must be computer driven as I cannot imagine someone in London reading all the messages, whatever the time dayor night and deciding what can appear.
I wanted to make photos available to anyone who wanted to see the sites of Anne's stories, but it was blocked. I asked Anne why seeing it was to her advantage for the publicity and she said she would have a word with whoever manages her web page. Nothing happened however., Romeo & Juliet now finished in fantastic weather for an English Summer getting up to 30 - 32 C every day. Not allowed to water garden with hoses such a long time since we had prolonged rain. Imagine how hot theymust have been in thick serge uniforms in Pitt's day,

No Wendy. this sometimes happens when someone else is putting a message on the board.

I just sent a message but I don't think it went through. Did you get a different one than this from me?
