I agree that Neil Down's comments are very perceptive and helpful but not so sure about Ida - she rather lets the team down, don't you think!!

Ida and Neil Down - Answered a Question by Barnes (13 Feb 08 19:32)

We wish....No we just love cruising and everything about it and want others to enjoy what we do. But if they are listening I would be very happy to have a retainer ! Is that the Rubery near Birmingham cos if it is I had some connections with it some time ago. Anyway my best wishes to you Sir or Madam....Nei.

Ida and Neil Down - Answered a Question by Barnes (14 Feb 08 11:55)

I'm sorry you find my views inferior, they are the views of a woman and maybe that is what you dislike. One thing I find detrimental on this site is that rarely do we know the gender of the correspondent with exceptions like Amber and Brian and I do like to know what to read from the answer. I am very different in some of my thoughts to Neil and that, in my honest opinion, is what makes us a good combination but maybe you will disagree with that too…. Humbly yours....Id.

I have to say, whilst I find the Downs rude, patronsising and unhelpful, I find the comments and advice of Aldrich to be objective, factual and hence,reliable, so more of Aldrich and less of the Down.

By Stacey Williams

A couple of months ago I decided to book a few days in London as I did last November because I had such a great time then. Kevin hasn’t been before so I wanted to squeeze as much into two days as we could.We took the lunch time train down on Sunday which took four hours from Carlisle to Euston. Once there, we managed to navigate ourselves from there to...
