  1. My congratulatons to the Cache Hoppers in achieving their 1000th find. Somehow I don't think the next 1000 will take so long! Well done!
  2. Sheesh.... yet another un-discovered novelist! Very good Ian.
  3. From the Wikki site: "The plants' association with Christmas originated in 16th century Mexico, where legend tells of a young girl who was too poor to provide a gift for the celebration of Jesus' birthday. The tale goes that the child was inspired by an angel to gather weeds from the roadside and place them in front of the church altar. Crimson "blossoms" supposedly sprouted from the weeds and became beautiful poinsettias. From the 17th century, Franciscan monks in Mexico included the plants in their Christmas celebrations" In any case it's a lot better than the contents of most plastic bags I see hanging up in trees... what's that about then?
  4. You need to upload the myfinds .zip file, not the GPX file. Just updated mine and it took about 3 minutes.
  5. Does anyone else do this? Place a new cache, get a really good average reading, get home and bring up the coords on googlemaps. Find your own 'super-accurate' coords seem to be slightly at variance with Googlemaps? I have this dilemma each and every time I place a cache, and I have been know to take an average of my own and googlemaps reading when deciding what the published coordinates should be. Should one trust googlemap in every case? (I know streetmap can put caches on the wrong side of a canal for instance.) Do googlemaps have their own idiosyncrasies?
  6. A brief history of google ads on GC: http://forums.Groundspeak.com/GC/index.php...p;#entry2929639
  7. I know the feeling.... I have had it before and will probably have it again. So where are you Chris? and is this another lost soul? Volvo man
  8. Ian, I can't get the link to open? Jon
  9. Yeah reckon that Cryptik bloke might know something about this one! (sorry Michael)
  10. It really doesn't take five minutes to collate the data, all of which you can obtain from your GC stats anyway. It's really interesting (and surprising) where the peaks and troughs occur over a years caching!
  11. I agree it's a great shame this has been archived. This cache typified all that's good about geocaching. Although I never did find it, it was one on my 'to revisit' list and one that I may have gone back to next week when I am in Wales again. A great pity! Jon
  12. What's anyone wanna go on the nwcaching forum for anyway???
  13. I think raising this topic on this forum is appropriate. It brings the subject to others attention that when placing a cache it's a jolly good idea mentioning that an admission fee is required. I for one have been disappointed on a couple of occassions now, both at Kew and St.Paul's London, where I thought the admission fees far outweighed the value of loggng a cache or two. Having said that...mentioning the name of a particular cache setter is not something I would have thought necessary to make ones point Jon
  14. Why you wanna do that? What happens when you want to blow your nose?
  15. Yeah come on * * * * * * * Don't be shy about your desktop publishing skills!
  16. This could of course be quite libellous... and I am very glad the guilty party has removed me from this particular light-hearted intenet lalughness! visit http://www.secaching.co.uk/ for the answers!
  17. 2 minutes before resorting to the clue, 15 to walking away...
  18. Until recently, when I logged into GC, I had a list of events displayed that I had signed into as attending within the next 30 days. Today I missed an event because it wasn't listed, and another event next week is not listed? Is this a known problem, or is it just me being stupid? Jon edited for typo
