Welcome back Jammy Dodger - definitely a better class of biscuit!

Yes were they the ones that came in the selection box?

Welcome to new Shipmates who have signed on recently .

You will find threads for various parts of the world in All Saints.

Have a look around and join in. It is a good idea to read the Ten Commandments at the top of the page and is also a good idea to read various boards to get a feel for them before posting.

Thanks Lothlorien, your post motivated me to find the oval Jammy Dodger - it turned out to be Huntley & Palmer's Milk & Honey biscuit which seems not to be made these days - as soon as I saw the Milk & Honey reference I recalled my mother adding them to the grocery order every Friday morning - they were a great favourite in our house - which she dropped into the Grocer on Friday morning on her way to work and it was all delivered on Friday afternoon.

There's a selection of biscuits available here made by Peek Frean's that has what I'd call jammy dodgers, but I must confess I prefer ordinary custard creams as the jam makes my teeth hurt.

Hi Nanny Plum is a Legend and welcome on behalf of the All Saints Hosting Team - feel free to join in and have fun. If you haven't done so already it's worth spending a moment or two looking through the Ship's version of the Ten Commandments and also the FAQs, both linked at the top of every page.

All the best on your cruise with us.

WW - AS Host.

Hello! I hope this the right place (I almost started a thread in heaven but then thought to look for other people introducing themselves).
I am new here but have read this forum for a long time. I hope to learn some new things and make some valuable contributions. [Angel]

I'd like to echo LeRoc's sentiments and welcome you to the Boards.

As you've been lurking (in the nicest possible sense!) for a time, you'll be aware of how we operate. If you haven't already done so, please check on our Ten Commandments and the preamble with each Board's menu.

Have fun

Yours aye ... TonyK

Hello Everyone,

I'm afraid I'm one of those tiresome sorts who loses interest in Christianity as a teenager and then returns to it in middle age. I'm just making a start on the return, really, and would like a good chinwag about it before I actually turn up at a place of worship and grapple with a half-remembered liturgy.

I'm not entirely sure I'm right for this forum, to be honest. I've had a good look around and it's a great place for discussion, which I hope to contribute to. But it seems everyone here is already a firm believer, rather than a potential believer. I mainly want to talk about why you believe, what exactly you believe, how you came to believe, and that kind of thing, and I'm worried that's not going to be your chalice of sherry.

I hope I won't be as out-of-place as a drunk at midnight mass. If there's a particular corner of the forum for people like me, I'd be grateful if you'd point me to it.

Thanks!
Harry

Welcome HarryLime! You are not out of place at all. The Ship is filled with all types and not all are firm believers. There are many who are, of course, but there are equally staunch atheists. And then there is a lot in the middle. Check out the "Mourning the loss of faith" thread further down the page here in All Saints to get some sense of the variety of Shipmates.

So you are certainly not out of place. Welcome aboard and I hope you stay for a nice long voyage!

Hi Harry, good to see you. As Hedgehog said, you are definitely not in the wrong place. Although the site is predominantly Christian, we have people of other faiths and of no faith at all. We have people confident in their faith and those who are struggling. All views are welcome (but don't be afraid to be challenged!). I look forward to seeing you arund the boards.

I suppose it is appropriate in some parts of the space/time continuum, that I am the third person to welcome you - and I do so on behalf of the All Saints Hosting Team.

You are indeed most welcome and be assured that you are most certainly not alone.

If you have not yet done so I seriously recommend a read of the both the Ship's version of the 10 Commandments and the FAQs, both linked at the top of every page.

Enjoy your cruise on our little liner, it might leak a bit but we seem to get there in the end.

WW, AS Host

Welcome indeed, from another third of the AS hosting team; I hope you enjoy sailing with us, and find some discussion and debate to suit your tastes.

Welcome back and smooth sailing.

We like to keep one membership per person. If you click on link at top of the page called Ship Stuff , you will see a contact link. From the link to Ship's Crew, select member admins. Choose an admin and send them an email. They will dig out your former details and let you know. Just another service from our friendly admins.

Enjoy the trip, there are names from the past which you may recognise.
