Sometimes people tend to do these sorts of threads as New Year resolutions but Ive decided I need to do it now and here where it will remain for any to see and read...

To those Ive offended by my words over the years... I appologize

To those Ive offended by my longwindedness over the years... I appologize

To those Ive been rude to personally on this forum (or others)... I appologize

To those Ive given the absolute shytes to over the years... I appologize

To those Ive given cause to feel insulted or disgusted by my words or pictures Ive posted from time to time... I appologize

To all who find that they fail to understand the words I express... I also apologize

I can only say in my defence I am not perfect nor am I even near it... I like anyone else can only asspire to it and trust that one day I attain it knowing it can never happen while ever breath resides within me

As a simple Australian bloke with a mediocre grasp of proper english and all that goes with that languages grammatical correctness I can only say its me accept it or not its a choice you can make I can only make my own sometimes Im wrong sometimes Im not but I try to make people smile even in the midst of the shyte of this world we live in and can only hope to succeed in doing so and at times like everyone I fail... such is life... not a heck of a lot I can do about that.

Please take it personally from me if the above is you then accept this my one only never to be repeated freely given appology

Nothing maudilin nothing negative just a sincere apology from one forumite to those he may have offended over the time Ive spent here.

All the very best to all of you for 2007

Yep, as I mentioned earlier, I'm not gonna be worrying about being PC anymore, so I guess I better apologize to all now.For future comments I probably will make.
And as John Wayne said in a movie, "never apologize, its a sign of weakness" so this is the only one anybodies gonna get LOL

Mate Im never PC... still call every sheila I meet love honey sweetheart and never hold back my words its just part of the way I talk PC is absolute carp as far as Im concerned

As for your John Wayne comment... its bullshyte... sorry but mate to apologize is to be man/woman enough to appreciate when youve done wrong in some way and attempt to correct that wrong... or even when you cannot recall saying or doing something wrong but a friend is hurt by something you did or they assumed you did... an attempt at reconsiliation is never wrong nor weak... its not weak in the slightest

As a young fella I was taught by a wonderful woman in my mum that when I do wrong say something wrong or act in a way "unmanly" or "ungentlemanly" to be the first with the hand of freindship extended with a sincere apology on my lips and in my heart... if your apology is accepted the wrong is forgotten never to be recalled the slate wiped clean if you will if not then at the least you were man/woman enough to try... mind you she also taught me to treat every sheila I went out with as Id expect my sisters to be treated by a fella and man did that one screw me up with the sheilas for awhile :rolleyes:

perhaps I read you wrong? no worries if I did cause its cleared up why Ive posted this in the first place which is okay as well ;)

LOL I know its crap Dingo ,,But it looks good in print.I find myself apologizing to wife constantly.Most of the time I have no idea what I did but it pays to make the affort. LOL
Its only the things I did 30 years ago that were dead until I do something again when its brought up like it happened yesterday.Thats when I like summer where I can just go get on the tractor and cut grass, even if it doesnt need cutting.

Your gettin' carried away there mate...


It is a good rule in life never to apologize. The right sort of people do not want apologies, and the wrong sort take a mean advantage of them. P.G. Wodehouse

Like I'm supposed to accept this sort of apology? As a general "to whom it may concern..."? Over the internet? No. I don't think so.

If I'm going to accept an apology from Dingo it's gonna be in person over beers at, say, The Brooklin Inn.

Hey Dan, I know where that Inn is.. Ummm.... Only a 10 hour drive.. Umm...Sounds like an EBS opportunity just waiting to happen...

Next July might be best. Otherwise the poor buggar might die of hypothermia. I think he should present himself on Saturday the 14th, which is the new moon. Then he can look at the stars and see what the sky is supposed to look like too.

Naw, by that time, he should be used to winter....
But July.. umm.. Told Claudia and Dave.. with the EBS at Mystic at the end of June, if I can't make it that far on Airlie, I will be in Brooklin...

"Flag Day Celebration at Brooklin Inn with Dan et al" - okay, so noted in my datebook. Any chance you'll have some more of that pseudo-homemade blueberry ice cream by then? And will the Sunset Gold tomatoes be ready for scarfing? :D

huisjen
12-26-2006, 12:05 PM
That ice cream was made with some, er, funny milk. I might be able to reproduce it with some yoghurt in the mix. Sungolds, well, I should try to get some going early in the greenhouse. Flag Day? No, that's June 14. I was thinking a month later, so the blackflies are gone.

Okay, wrong holiday but right date. And no black flies by then, huh? Good - it took about 3 months for the effects of their last ravage to disappear. ;)

huisjen
12-26-2006, 01:23 PM
Yep. I gotta say it: Anybody who says Dingo has nothing to apologize for, well, I have to respectfully disagree. He's got to come apologize for not visiting sooner. :D

DanIf you manage to get Dingo to Maine for a few beers, I'll be forced to drive down from New Brunswick and buy the first round. Been wanting to meet Dan and his sheep anyway.

Shayne, if this is what it takes to get you temporarily on this side of the equator ... apology not accepted (yet).

... though of course, there wasn't any need in the first place.

But if you did then good on ya' for being the man and putting it behind you. You are who you are, just like everyone else. You take people for what they do, not what they say, and I have always...wait, I am getting choked up here.... considered you and Jo as inspirations. Very, very few people on God's good earth have been handed the bundle of shyte that you folks have and come through with the smile on their faces that you have. Just to have to do what you do for a living would probably kill 80% of Americans today, yet you have never whined about having to do it. Ranted. Raged. Invented some amazingly descriptive terms of derision. Yeah, you've done all of that, but you haven't pouted or whined. Probly don't know what that is, do ya mate?

I tell you what. You ever get on a plane and visit the northern half of the world, you tell me where the EBS is going to be. I wouldn't miss it for the world.

I can't imagine that you offended anyone, Shane.

Okay this is gonna be a tad long... tuff build a bridge and get over it... I think it needs explainin a bit so here goes...

Mickey mate I am more than able to do so :o :( (human nature I guess) and believe me I know I have at times been an absolute a$$ to some people here (and on other forums to my shame) Im not lookin for accolades or pats on the back "good on yer mate" sorta stuff if I was gonna do that Id have had a title like "Call me a flamin legend but Im friggin good" :eek: :p ...but I didnt... simply put mates I just wanted to say "look if Ive f***ed up then Im sorry Im not perfect I try to be the best I can but I can and will make mistakes I can and will say things or do things that will possibly phiss you off one way or another and I accept that but lets not let it stand between the friendship we have or once had or possibly could have had if what happened didnt"

I dont know I sorta sat down the other night and thought about some things with my family mob... inlaws and younger brother particularily and thought "maybe just maybe its me?" after a particularily nasty few issues with them maybe if I just apologize for whatever the heck it was Ive done (and with my brother in law I still have no idea other than bein from the wrong side of the tracks) it will calm down and we can move on without the bullshyte...

So when my younger brother turned up on Chrissy arvo with his missus an nippers I simply took him aside and told him I was "bloody sorry for whatever Id done to phiss you off mate" shook his hand and he told me what Id said that he'd had trouble dealing with for so long both of us realizing that it was something that we had both done that had upset the apple cart it was so easy settled yet not done... instead he allowed it to simmer for several years as I also had done only not to the same degree as him... mind you it was only when he told me that my own attitude toward him came to the fore... we shook hands had a beer and it was over we had a bloody ball for the first time in years... mind you hes still a jumped up little git with a big head but hey hes my brother :cool:

As to the inlaws... well I guess theres nothing more I can do about them and the brother in law in particular... you get that ... I tried the same thing as I did with my brother but his response was a limp wrist and glares for the rest of the time no beer no smile no nothing... the others just smirked and did their usual lordy attitudes in a way slightly worse since their view of me is of the same as geeman jokingly posted "your weak as shyte if you apologize" and of course their shyte dont stink so there is nothin more I can do... but you see I tried

But then I considered the past 6 or so years here... and knew Id insulted several good people Dave Fleming Bob Smalser Oyster Mike among others and I figured if I can do that consciously without regard to them and their feelings then who the bloody hell else have I treated equally as shabbily over that time? And mate thats not something I want to have on my conscience any longer than necessary... hence this thread.

I know that no one can please everyone nor can one get along with everyone there will always be those who one clashes with or disagrees with vehemently and sometimes theres those who just simply get right up your nose... you know? right up past the nostral hairs past the boogies and right smack between the eyes... you just dont get along and nothing ever seems to be able to change it no matter what... and I reckon I must do that to some people here.

Its to those that this thread is aimed at... Im aware of the "wubs" and "cyberhugs" as the hoons call it that I have eminating from around the world toward us down here and am totally wrapped with it something I never expected when I first came here but have had the greatest pleasure from knowing its there for us... a true treasure... great friends Id love to meet.

Its those Ive treated badly that I wanted to apologize to... some like Dave and Bob rarely post down here... others I no longer talk to as often its more hurtful than constructive so we tend to ignore each other... Im hoping they read this and in the light that its offered accept it... If not well no worries as I said at least Ive tried

Id rather get along with people no matter if in life or here on the net than argue bicker snipe an snarl and I find the constant negativity tedious since I no longer get the time I once did on this thing Id rather have friendships than foes or silence. :(

Accept it people I find it bloody hard to do succinct short or sweet... ahem well I can do sweet if its Margo Claudia Lisa Jami or Kat Im yarnin to... I can do sweet then ;) ...but even for them I cant do short and succinct :p

Cheers for all the wonderful words by the way people :cool:

Thanks, Mickey. We're quite enamored with Nanoose too.

Actually, Nanoose is both Dave and I, although I tend to do more posting than he does. And he usually signs off with his name.

mmm well... "Buggar me!" is me expressing total surprise... "your a sheila!" means your a female type hooman bean you know a girl type? not a male :rolleyes: well I cant explain that any better without gettin into specific differences which you should already be well aware of ;) ..."whahooo!" means simply "yippee" combined as they were means "shock! your a female! yippee" which is to say "hey your a girl type OKAY!!! now we can have some fun" ...now followed as it was by "I eerr ummm sorta figured yer were..." means I wasnt sure :o no photo other than your boat and although some of what you have written meant I leant toward you bein a sheila but then you would write something else and Id go "mmmm maybe not steady steady ol fella dont wanna say somethin all sweet like an get a bloke all antsy or excited depending on their preferences" ;)
