Message in a bottle

This site is great fun, you can send a message in a bottle, and/or wait for some to be washed up to your shore and then send it on. You get replies from all around the world. A few people I know have had the odd rude one (which you can just discard) but I've not had any.
I've started adding my screen name (Shirazee) to my messages as it's interesting to see if anyone gets a bottle with a message in from anyone they 'know'. Have a go it can get pretty addictive, I have to keep checking if a new message has arrived :smile:

Always up for a new addiction - might give you lot a bit of peace and quiet if I did!!

Will have a look at it Linda - looks like something the kids will enjoy.

Will probably appear as Sasha's Mum but will let you know!

I keep getting obscure poetry from USA!

On to my second bottle now - have only sent one though for now.

Will have to wait to see if I have got the hang of it all properly. You don't have to log in or create an account to use it so that's good.

Sometimes it takes a while for the cork to come out, especially if the site is busy - just tried the site now and it's not available :screams: how can I cope :smash6:

Re: Message in a bottle

Ah Amanda you had "cork wiggle" dear!!

Scroll down and it tells you all about it - apparently if there is a lot of interent useage in your area it can take sometime for the cork to come out. It says to close the page and try again. I got it a couple of times today.

Can't get onto the site at all now!

Linda .................... what have you started!!

Thanks for the help. I did manage to get a couple open one that was sent just to see where it ended up. Everyone who opened it put on where they lived and sent it off again.

Oooh yet another addiction

Re: Message in a bottle

Had some good alphabet games etc and some song lyrics.

Linda, I blame you for all of this! Have they had to get new servers because the whole of the Whitestuff and their various relations are now addicted??!!!

Can't remember what my desktop looks like - it's a permanent lighthouse and beach now!

I always put either SashasMum or something about Scotland on it - so if you get something like that - it might be me!

Re: Message in a bottle

A whole new world of understanding has opened up!!

Bottle Blogs!

DIS-ers

I kept getting these messages saying "Yay another DIS-er" Now I know what that means!!!

You know, these lot make us look reallly sane! Can you believe that there are some forums out there, where all they are talking about is messages in bottles? No really .... there are!

Now, what was I talking about again.........................
