After trying to hunt down where to buy poi from in bristol (I know it is in the threads somewhere, but it was not easy to find and if I didn't know it existed I wouldn't of found it)

I was wondering if we could make the first post in these threads more useful.... I may be wrong and I most certainly propbably haven't got the best format for it yet , but that is what these forums are for ... ideas....

SO how about

hmmm... liking the smileyness of it... reckon we need them in cymru for proper like.... and indeed we had a fine idea, everyone should copy it. the best things always start in wales, like leeks, and sheep, where would we be without sheep??

now i'm being silly, so i shall leave and steal some smileyness to take to cymru thread....
