Time for this mod to hang up his admin hat...

So I guess I really have to come out of denial and finally admit that today is my last day at TheSite Towers. It's not easy to accept that my time is up. But I guess it sneaks up on you quicker than you think.

I've been kicking around TheSite community, mostly in the background, since that day Jim V signed me up almost eight years ago. Over those years, I've learnt so much from so many people on here who've bravely shared about their lives and spoken up about what they've experienced. It's never easy to speak up, but those who have have helped make TheSite community what it is and achieve as much as it has.

Reading through the threads day to day, reflecting back over the years this morning, it feels like a privilege to have been able to share this journey with you.

Some might remember that when I first came on here I was El Gringo because I'd just come back from working in Guatemala where everyone called me Gringo. Now, I'm going to go back to Guatemala and gringo-dom with my family.

I wish you all the best for the future. Take care,

Patrick :thumb:

    I'm saddened to hear you are leaving Patrick, but you honestly won't be forgiven, I won't ever forget the remarks I made about your slow typing, and I just want you to think about Llamacorns every now and then, and associate it with me :D I'm saddened to hear you leave, even though you have spent 8 Years mostly lingering on TheSite background, but it's been good to have you during chat sessions, and it's been positive to be able to annoy you ;) If we haven't forgotten JimV, we mostly definitely won't forget you!

    Also, this might be worth Printing off ;)

    Hi there all,

    Just wanted to say a quick thank you all for all your kind words, certificates (brilliant!) and thoughts (especially in Spanish and English!). They mean a helluva lot.

    In terms of bringing coffee back - always thought could start importing Guatemalan coffee (it's the best) and then may be export proper tea over there (they haven't discovered delights of the good olde British cuppa :-)). It's a win win... may be appearing on Dragons Den soon.

    Take care everyone!

    All the best - over and out, Patrick :thumb:
