BLYTH - Answered a Question by Breeze (03 Jan 09 15:17)

If you know there name and town you can use something like 192 online to find out there address and telephone number. Telecom I believe might have something similar but never tried there's. How did you ask them to purchase the item, some cruise companies have there goods on-line as well and you can purchase them that way is another option worth looking into. I think this site at the momet does publish name and town and I have concerns about a town being shown, might be better if it were just the name and county as you can trace someone from just those two bit of information, but know one else has raised the issue hope you manage to get in contact with whoever it is you are trying to trace. Reminds me of the customs did you pack your own bag, has anyone asked you to get something for them....

Sorry, why is it scary if something is purchased presumably in a shop on behalf of someone else? Granted it is a somewhat unusual situation Mr/Ms Breeze is in for the purchaser not to know the Breeze details but I often buy things whilst on cruises/holiday for other people at home and I have asked friends to buy for me. Now, unknown parcels given, with no questions asked or answers given, that is scary, for the individual bringing it home!

Read the question. We have often asked friends and relatives to bring things home for us, but they know our address and E-mail. This person has asked someone who dosnt know their address or E-Mail to bring something back. All I can say is best of luck. Maybe its just fridge magnets or the odd bottle or two. Hope I'm right.

Sorry to have misinterpreted your statement but it was ambiguous. Like Andrew, I am intrigued to know how the original request came about but have no immediate answers I'm afraid.

Thank you for your reply. I just found such a question questionable.

Hi sorry my question caused a bit of concern. All it is, is that I was reading the reviews and I asked someone who had recently been on one of Thomson ships whether the classical duo that I had previously seen were still on the ship. They said yes and that they had purchased one of their dvd's on board. I said I was gutted I'd missed it and another reviewer replied that they were going on soon and would purchase one on my behalf, but of course as I'd be a bit reluctant to publish my personal email address on a public site, I wondered how they would ever be able to send it to me! I must say I was a bit taken aback by some of the things that people were thinking of my original question, but I hope it's a bit clearer (and more innocent) now!!

Don't be sorry, anything that stirs a bit of interest is far more interesting than some of the ill thought out drivel that gets posted. One other thought. Most internet providers give you the opportunity to set up 5 or 6 email addresses. You could set up a 'one off email address' to put on the site & then 'bin it' once you've made contact......Wilba.

Thank you for all your help - I'm an avid reader of this forum but this is really the first time I've been brave enough to ask a question. I promise next time to be more clear with my question!

Wonderful Mexico

By Neil Holmes

Neil Holmes's blog

It was time for my annual week away with great friends. Last year we went to New York, which was a little cold so this year we went to warmer climates.We stayed at Riu Cancun in Mexico which was a perfect location to the bustling nightlife.We boarded our flight in Manchester the day after and inch and a half of snow fell, so yes there was a two hour delay but that did not bother us. 10 hours later we had swapped the minus 2 degrees to a more relaxing 28 degrees.The hotel was fantastic, all i...
