Random Musings - Talk About Everthing
Posted: 2/28/2019 11:48:57 AM
So its the 1st of March 2019 from midnight tonight and that's when all the fun and thrills of picking up a brand new 19 plate car starts, there are some major car dealers who actually throw parties to help the new owners celebrate the occasion, I once drove past a DC Cook dealer and there were a good 50 to 60 folk there and there were banners and balloons etc. That was back in 1997.

Anyone here collecting their new mode of transport tomorrow??

Morning to all..

Its exactly 2am here in a very wet and dark Altofts ( West Yorkshire ).

I am posting this to share the good news that both myself and Dave ( Chapster ) managed last night 21st Jan 2019 to meet up in Pontefract which is about 4 miles from me and have a few drinks together.

It was a total honour and pleasure to get to meet the bloke in person and he`s a true gent and star.

I wish him well today 22/1/19 on the first day of his 3 day course in relation to his change of life move to become a driving instructor.

I really hope our paths cross again someday pal...

I`ve seen the picture`s of the young lady who was talking to Chapster vie e mail....

I do realise that the whole thing was a type of trick but was curious as to wether that young woman does actually exist in real life?

Ok so..

Its just gone 5pm here in Altofts ( West Yorkshire ) on sunday 20th of January..

So that means that hopefully tomorrow Monday 21st of January I`ll have both the pleasure and honour of meeting up face to face with young Chapster from the southern part of the UK who i believe is in Pontefract ( 4 miles from me ) on a part of his driving instructors course.

Hopefully he`ll contact me to advise on his location in Pontefract at some point so i can go catch up with him..

Also i do hope that young Vad`s diet in aid of a new knee project is going well...

Still no sign of Squareslice or Orangetiger either...Even Kirk seems to have bailed out...

Oh well we`ll have to see how the rest of the year pans out on here...

I simply wanted to say that whatever avenue 1wantingtobe2 choses to go down with regards to this lady in the bar, I just wish him all the luck in the world for a successful outcome..

I`m just wondering if I`ll ever get to go on an official POF inspired date in the next 12 months...

It`ll sure be good to meet up with you Chapster while your up here in West Yorkshire..

Its also fantastic that things are moving along at good and steady speed with your new venture...I`d love to be an instructor but of course it`d have to be for buses and coaches :-)

Hiya Chappy,

There are now 74 employee`s in the POF office, there was 75 but now Natasha`s gone down to 74. its a really smart looking office judging by the photo`s I`ve seen...

Thanks for the info regarding the display units too, may be worth investigating and investing in.

Keep me updated too about your future visit up this neck of the woods..

Just wanted to post this here as its pretty random to others who wont even know what I`m talking about but it means a lot to me and may strike a cord with any other POF Event Host here in the UK.

So I want to wish Natasha the POF Event Moderator all the luck and best wishes in the world with her emigration to the UK. She leaves the POF office in Vancouver at the end of this week and flies to the UK sometime after. She is going to stay with her cousin for a short while till she can find her feet and secure her own place close by.

So yeh that's me...

In fact if my workings are correct, if you lined up Teresa and Phil Hammond and Amber Rudd who I think is the woman in charge of the current welfare and benefits and you managed by some means to get them stood in front of each other and you got a clear shot with a 8" armour piercing round with a powerfull enough semi auto rifle you could take out all three in one go...

Altofts P.O.F Night Out - Friday 7TH December 2018 - 8PM
Posted: 12/6/2018 5:48:32 PM
Hello and good morning to all..

Well there are just over 16 hours to go now till all you happy friendly single fish have the chance to meet others in the same boat as you.

We look to have just short of 80 people signed up aiming to attend and if each one does actually attend and bring 3 friends then were sure to have an awesome and memorable evening.

I`ve now started to tell members who sign up to simply check the guest list themselves and find the location of the other attendees to assess wether realistically they stand a genuine chance of getting to the event....

All I can tell everyone as a veteran POF event organiser is that I really do not have any idea of exactly how many will show up or what time they will turn up...Organising these events is not an exact science, sometimes more turn up and sometimes less turn up...

End of the day all we ask as hosts is that you simply try your best to attend, grab a drink and see how the whole event pans out...

Cheers,
Bryan

Altofts P.O.F Night Out - Friday 7TH December 2018 - 8PM

So,

I took time out to go attend the Leeds POF event last night 30th of November at Shenanigans organised by David ( Sailordavid ).

It was a brilliant night and well attended and a great time was had by all.

So with that in mind there is now only a week to go till you all have the chance to come along to the Horse & Jockey pub here in the village of Altofts very close to Wakefield, Castleford, Pontefract and also quite close to junction 31 of the M62 motorway.

Its nice to see 60 plus members signed up and we do hope that as many of you as possible will actually be able to make it on the night.

Hi Chappy,

I too want to congratulate you on all the great and positive progress and inroads you`ve made since your decision to change your life..

I`m still hoping that we`ll get to have a catch up early in 2019 if you do come up here to West Yorkshire for more course training..

Oh and I`ll not be sat on my hands all day or night, I`m going to be pretty busy helping out on a volountary basis at Dewsbury Bus Museum, there is always plenty to do there.

Hi there Chappy,

Sorry for the late reply to the thread.

Yes I did reply to the 550 pof ladies who had viewed me, it took roughly 8 hours give or take a few minites, I took the time to make sure that each message was different and unique to each lady....still waiting for a reply but not as hopefull as I was...

I get no interest at all from the get togethers I run....just lots of single people complaining at me about the site and how its run and the horrible people who they seem to encounter and just general complaints about POF, it can be soul destroying some months, but hey I just keep getting up and dusting myself down and crack on with the following months event...

Well I finally decided a few weeks ago to pack all my self employed roles in and sell my involvement in the bus companies I had and retire extremely early...If Marcus is allowed to do it then so am I...

So as it stands now I don't have a car but can drive and I`m retired....no doubt I`ll be judged to death on here by the hundreds of thousands of women who view my profile....Young orangetiger was right many months ago...Its pretty low what folk who don't know you judge you on..if only they thought about messaging to enquire as to why I do what I do...

Hi Chappy,

The actual number of events here is the UK has dropped dramatically and the major factor is the abuse via reply to the invite then on the lesser scale some of the organisers actually meet someone so call it a day as host.

In all my 13 year history as a host this is the very first time ever that folk have actually taken time to ring the venue being used and abused either the staff or management.

But yes I`d love to know what it is about this site here in the UK that triggers off all this anger and violent and sometimes ignorance from members.

Its totally different over the water in Canada, they are mega relaxed and chilled out and very much supportive of their events and the event hosts..I guess I`m running mine in the wrong country..

Well I was staggered to find out today that the manager of the venue I use for the events I run has asked me to remove the contact number for the venue due to getting way too many abusive calls from people on here who actually thought the number belonged to me...

Some folk are going to be on here for a long long time if that's how they treat folk..

Posted: 11/21/2018 7:34:26 AM
Hello and good afternoon,

I felt I ought to post this to ask people who are thinking about attending this event to please not contact the venue but to contact me for all the information regarding this event.

One of the pub management has asked me to remove the contact number of the pub due to having to sadly deal with lots of abusive calls regards the whole event as the people ringing the mobile number supplied before actually thought it was mine...

So to sum up, if you have any questions or enquiries at all about this event or any other events here in the UK then PLEASE CONTACT ME AND ME ONLY....

Thanks for your co operation..

Well..

A huge thanks to Natasha ( Event Moderator at POF HQ in Vancouver ) for approving and scheduling this event.

I`ve now just 5 minites ago sent out the event invite so check your inboxes because yours will arrive pretty soon.

Please be advised though that the blue link provided to enable you to put yourself on the guest list tends to only work if your using a desktop or laptop computer, some mobile devices wont access this part of the site.

Anyway the clock is now ticking so check your diarys and try and keep Friday December 7th free and come and join us in the function room at the Horse & jockey pub in Altofts ( West Yorkshire ), you`ll get to meet other single folk and have a relaxing night out..

Altofts P.O.F Night Out - Friday 7TH December 2018 - 8PM
Posted: 11/17/2018 7:47:43 AM
Hello to all you friendly male and female single fish here on Plenty of Fish.com.

We are organising another free to enter single social get together at the Horse & jockey pub in the small but friendly village of Altofts here in West Yorkshire.

The pub is pretty much off the beaten track with one bus an hour going past the venue towards either Wakefield or Castleford, so if you don't do buses your going to need to drive or get a taxi to get here unless your a local single person and can walk to the venue.

The Horse & Jockey is a small typical village pub with photo`s of days gone on the walls and a proper coal fire for the winter months.

We do hope that you`ll try and come along to this night out which will give you the chance to actually meet other singles from this site face to face and also give you time to give your keyboards a rest for a few hours.

We`ve been given the pub function room free of charge again so lets all get together and have a truly awesome night out.

If your local to Castleford, Pontefract, Wakefield, Knottingley or are reasonably close to this area then we`d love for you to come and join us for a real relaxed and enjoyable social evening.

This is to say a huge thank you to the 12 or so people who actually took the time to turn up last night to the Altofts Plenty of Fish social get together here in West Yorkshire.

It was so good to see you all and it was also good to have some games of pool to both break the ice and get folk both mixing, talking and above all laughing..

I`m kinda hoping that some of you or even all of you will come back again next month..

Thanks again,

Well folks,

Todays the day where your invited to come along at 8pm to the Horse & Jockey pub in the village of Altofts and have the chance to meet other singles.

I`ve no idea how many will actually turn up but unless you turn up yourself then we`ll never know..

When you come into the pub just keep walking straight ahead till you arrive in the function room ( Its got a pool table in ), I`ll be there to meet and greet and will try my best to answer any POF related questions that you may have.

Only 7 hours 40 mins to go....

The quiz was brilliant and I`ll be going to take part next Tuesday now too..

In other news sadly the person who agreed to do the disco for my POF night out tomorrow night has now pulled out, so I`ve had to re jig my advert and placed a short notice apology to anyone who was actually thinking of attending to advise them of the fact.

Its only awkward as the function room I`ve been given is at the back of the pub and so I`ll be in there on me lonesome till anyone turns up...I guess I`ll just take a few magazines to help pass the time..

Altofts ( West Yorkshire ) P.O.F night out at the Horse & Jockey - Friday 16th of November 2018

Good afternoon to all..

I wanted to give everyone a short notice update to let anyone who actually manages to attend tomorrow night that sadly there will not now be a disco running for us but we are still meeting up in the pubs function room.

The juke box in the pub plays random music till someone puts some cash in to select songs, so the management have told me they will have the music piped into the function room so at least it`ll not be deathly quiet..

I`m really sorry about the disco but its totally out of my hands and control...

Bryan
