The GMB in my local rag!
« on: June 02, 2012, 04:27:46 PM »
 ;D
I can't post this in the cafe, 'cos I can't put the pics there.
I did not once use the "r-word", but the reporter used it anyway.

I do like the last quote, from Shona:-

"It's really the whole glass community of the world that's banded together to help Cancer Research."  :)
Cheers, Sue (M)

What a lovely story Sue, and a good plug for the GMB, and it's lovely to see you and your big smile on the photo! :)x

BTW if you want the topic moving to Cafe I can do that for you without it losing its pics. Or it can stay in News, where it's very relevant anyhow.

Well, if its relvant for news, perhaps it should stay here, rather than drift away in the cafe.  ;D

I loved the "plug" for the GMB too, I was delighted with the article - you know how reporters and such can get it all... wrong.

All those folk with Schmetterlings, now coming out of Dundee's woodwork are being told:-

"Join the GMB!"
Cheers, Sue (M)

Great story with a happy ending!

However, you look nothing like the Sue I had pictured in my head!  (That Sue is a skinny wee thing with short dark hair!)    ???

I'm heading for being a skinny wee thing again, Nancy! I am on a diet - my BMI is just under 25.....
Sorry, I'm a bottle blonde. Don't like it but can't help it.
My natural colour is one a mouse would not be seen wearing in public.  :-[

It's not a flattering photo - but it is a happy one which is all that really matters. ;D
