Thank you for your kind welcomes Manapa & David 'The Dhamma' Snyder.

:smile:

Manapa: I see you are from Aberdeen. I myself am just outside Edinburgh.

The Dhamma: Curiously enough, a friend of mine just became a friend of yours on Facebook.

Hope you are both well.

The Isle of Man is a place I have never visited actually. I hear it is lovely.

it depends on wha you enjoy, it is a mini-Scotland in many ways as my Gran used to say (she was Scotish), beautiful views etc, and if you like bikes there is no better place than here when the races are on.

Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)
