A BIG HELLOOO FROM WALES

HELLO TO EVERYBODY,
I'm Fat Bob or so they tell me and at around the 20 stone mark they are right.
I have been in touch with the sign world for over 11 years first as a shop fitter
and for the last six as a selfemployed signmaker.
It was a hard start for me at the time and a real tough learning curve when like so many of you, have a family to provide for a mortgauge etc.and know absolutley sod all about
computers.

All that is behind me now and I know its the best thing I ever did, sure we will all struggle
to just put bread on the table or by that piece of kit you need.
But there is nothing like having the freedom to do what you want now and then.

I won,t bore the hell out of you right now with work details I'll keep that for another day
but I would like to thank all the people contibute to this site and make it somewhere to get help and advice when you need it.

So just to prove the point a special thanks to Phil For the Steamer Tip as it saved me about 3 Hours of hard graft to day.

Cheers. Robert Lloyd aka Fat Bob

I'm glad to be accepted

Gee Guys and Gals

Thanks for making me feel at home.
Most people think that men from Wales just walk around hills
with wellies on defiling sheep here and there.

Well I wont say its not true but some of us are very inovative
and move with or before the times as when you see me with my designer
spiked nikes and velcro nee pads going out for a run........you aint seen me right!!

I have been in the wildeness for a long time and at last it's nice to meet other pepole
whos will is to share thier Knowledge. As opposed to hiding it in case its stolen.
These People dont get the Message by sharing you learn more.. you make better signs
You then can start to charge what your worth. which some of us sadly cant do due to location or circumstances but through companionship and sound advice the burden is sometimes lifted.

This then is the the time to look at the advice take a bit from here a bit from ther and mold yourself a plan and if we stick together we can become a force that helps each other through the good and more important the bad get things done like cscs cards
(a subject to be discussed in depth as it will affect us all some how) and at the same time have a bit of fun.

Hell did I just Write all that I better shut or you might think I'm some sort of preacher...

Bye for now love you all (Going for a Quick Jog} FB

Hello Bob, nice to see you here.
I've not seen much of Wales, but Caerphilly is one place I shall remember, I loved the castle!
Hope to see you more here.

G'day Nice to hear from Gray & Leeroy

Yes Gray its a bit of a monster castle is that and at long last they are starting to
sort out the town centre and make it a better place for visitors. I am a Refugee
and have only been here 11 years I was born and bread in Cardiff some 50 years
ago its only a couple of miles away but I would not move Back to the City now.
if you ever pass this way again the door is always open.

Leeroy.. nice one but I think youll find they mean you just have bigger and better
looking ones........ Do you use Wellies or Velcro or do they have a better method
of holding the buggers still... :lol:

till we meet again.......... FB

nah mate,

From what I've been told it's something about using the top of a cliff and getting some feedback.

I won't tell you what they say about Tasmanians.
