As a courtesy to everyone on Scholar, we'd like to ask you to help keep from filling up the Local Timeline with very long threads

This means that if you are writing a thread, please do one of the following:

1. Make the first post Public and the following posts Unlisted (others will see the rest of the thread when they click the first post, but the following posts won't be on the Local Timeline), or

2. Add "Long thread" as a Content Warning (CW) for the thread

After much frustration & coating my flat with tiny flecks of gold & silver, I discovered this stuff called Deco Foil which is far easier to apply and comes in a huge range of metallic colours. It is heat sealed in place with a laminator which I already have. The design is printed with laser printer or photocopier as the foil sticks to the toner.

URGENT The lady on the left is Ann, we are on the no 17 STAGECOACH bus to Brighton from Horsham, Sussex. Do you know her, she has no idea where she lives, she has no ID on her.
