I know there is a lot of appreciation for HoL but sometimes it can feels like every time Hugh or Liz post, someone comes along to moan. Of course everyone is entitled to their opinion but anyway, I for one find this site very useful and helpful and great at fostering a sense of community.
I'll second that appreciation of Liz!
Someone I know found this site invaluable during the riots of 2011 both for the information and reassurance/offers of help from locals. It was probably HoL's finest moment.
Yes, quite without meaning to, we kinda became one of the main information hubs during the riots, even being used by the BBC and other media. I got quite sucked in.
If Hugh & Liz are so on the ball as to merit two such notices in recent weeks, it's obviously down to their nefarious surveillance of all our lives. Surely it's time someone took them out - not for dinner or drinks - just take the b......s out.
You know you can't keep off HOL and you love Hugh and Liz's work really.
Jelly Jam, I do believe that was the general tenor of my comment - but why the feck do you have to embarrass an old codger by spelling it out? [This, of course, is likely to be double bluff.]
Well said Josephine.
It is sad that certain people seem incapable of anything other than miserable / cynical posts - but the good overwhelmingly outweighs the bad: I still tell people how HoL was entirely responsible for helping to find my 1-year old's precious toy (cloth) duck, without whom he couldn't sleep. Duck had not only been rescued from a Harringay Passage puddle, but was washed and dried before being returned to us! A joyous reunion ensued.
"miserable / cynical posts" is this exaggeration or have I missed something?
