    No, but I wouldn’t mind meeting someone such as Josquin13, Rick Riekert, or a few others who so obviously love the music and have contributed so much to the forum.

    Not a realistic option as I'm not permitted a day pass.

    Sorry to hear you've been banned from the buses again, dogen.

    I did tell you you'd have to stop drinking all that alcohol-free beer on the top deck. Insisting on giving every passenger a RateBeer review each time is just adding insult to injury, if you want my honest opinion.

    Seriously, no. Though anyone is welcome to meet up if they're passing through my locality. You might be a bit underwhelmed, though.

    The Irish Open golf? That’d be a great visit! I went to it years ago but haven’t followed golf closely since...

    Occasionally I've met in real life I know from different Facebook music groups but otherwise no, not yet

    While we are on this subject, what I'd like to know is this: Do Kieran and Nereffid ever get together for a pint? They can't live that far away from each other!

    No, I haven't. I think it might be strange to meet someone from this site if the only thing we had in common was a similar love of similar music - unless maybe at a concert that we both happen to have been due to attend. What would we talk about? Music? We're already doing that. But if we had a good few other common interests or experiences and lived near to each other then maybe it would work. I can see that sites that cater for pastimes that involve more active collaboration could easily lead to good encounters.

    *nods, i agree with you there... though there is always the possibilities, they too like videogames, magic the gathering, or other activities that would be fun that you humans tend to do while hanging out with each other. like go bowling. or to a pet store and purchace 3.5 cats. each. then give them names of your favourite composers, and each of you take one, then you go on a journey and find me to offer me the other five. ;D

    i want some cats... *cries

    Another member of this forum - who hasn't been active lately - was coming up for a work conference at an educational establishment near us and suggested a meeting. It had been fixed up, but it was just after Taggart had been ill, so I was meant to be driving - but then I fell ill with flu, so we had to call it off.

    I posted on a folk forum I belong to asking people to recommend fiddle schools and courses. One poster, first name Martin, recommended Halsway Manor, so we went on my very first fiddle-course holiday there, which did wonders for my confidence and started me and Taggart off on our hobby of attending folk music courses - there'll be four this year.

    Anyway, we met Martin there, and he turned out to be very nice and funny. He looked after us and made sure we got the best out of the experience.

    In general, though, I admit I am rather wary of meeting internet friends in real life.
    My fiddle my joy.
