Hope all y'alls Christmas, Boxing Day and New Years Day went well and was safe for one and all. AND isn't Boxing Day when servants and Masters changed places for a day?

Thanks Darren. I'm impressed - not many Americans know what Boxing Day is!
Comment by Cajun Pilot/Darren Wayne West on December 26, 2008 at 2:52pm
I'm an American living in Gering, Nebraska and would like to welcome y'all to the CBG Nation and Happy Boxing Day to all! ;)

Yeah I guessed so, the clue was in your 'handle'. You are welcome to visit the inmates whenever you like. Be sure to bring a cake with a file hidden in it so we can break out of the dungeon.

Fair enough Joker - I like straight talking people. So what you doing here then :) Yeah where is Hollowbelly?

Hey smojo, I'll join up, if for no other reason than i dont know anyone in britain who does the cbg thing. Be good to know there is a few of us around, if I can include myself. I aint finished my first one yet, still working stuff out.

Cheers for the invite man,

Not sure what we're gonna talk about yet but thought it would be cool to get a little place where we can gather our British cbg clan together, rub a little wode on our bodies, chat about cbg stuff over a nice cup of tea or moan about the weather.
