(Show Details...)
Bloggers PhotoHi it is time i introduced myself, I was born in Skipton Yorkshire, England, and still have a accent belonging to my birth place. in 1966 my wife Elaine and i and our two sons moved to New Zealand, where the boys were raised. then we  moved on to the city of Perth  in Western Australia.
After 45 years away we both decided to have a move back to the yorkshire dales where we were raised. leaving our children and grandchildren in what i consider the best places on the planet. (NZ-OZ)
Our reason for the move back to the uk was to be able to discover our back yard so to speak, and we have a desire to go to europe, especially scandinavia and germany.
 I would like to say how much i'm enjoying my trip here on soup, and really loved the poems posted, my bigest problem being time, i always seem to be catching up, being able only to spend two to three days on here, even then with limited hours, so please forgive me if my comments seem later than most.  I also love football (soccer) Newcastle United in England being my team, then music, all kinds but mainly Rock 'n' Roll, i'm  a avid record collector, especially old vinyl LP's of the Fifties. my favourite poet is W. H Davies, along with a few on soup here, I do not get a lot of time to read these days, but my favourite Author is Dennis Wheatley, also i love  the the Bronte Sisters, being raised only 10 miles from Haworth, one gets a real feel for their literature, when one visits the area.   Harry

..READING PD'S BLOG, AND ANDREA'S COMMENT THERE ALSO,, ABOUT FOLK CREATING ACCOUTS, JUST TO MAKE COMMENTS,, I SAW A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO WHEN I WAS ON IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT UK TIMES, 3 ACCOUTS WITH NAMES SO DEROGATORY, RACIST, AND WITH NAMES OF HUMAN BODY PARTS, AND NO, NOT HEART EARS OR NOSES...AND THEY MANAGED TO POST, SO THE QUESTION IS AS PD SAYS, HOW ON EARTH DID THESE FOLK MANAGE TO CREATE ACCOUNTS WITH, THESE SIGN ON'S I'LL NEVER KNOW..

    Hi Harry! :) Great to get to know you a little more. I know the people you are referring to...I was shocked to see their user names as well. Very vulgar, and the stuff they posted...same quality. I was shocked since I thought there was good censorship on this site. Well...I don't now why sometimes people can be mean with the comments they make, but if this is a community...then we need to stick up for one another...like you did for me a while back. Will never forget it! Thanks! :)

    I had a good friend on another poetry site. He had hundreds of poems posted. He got a hater messing with him and dropped off the face of the planet. Haven't heard fom him since. Nasy words especially hurt poets, I reckon.

    Harry - I am friends with Sukmawati on FB...we communicate occasionally but I was not aware that she deleted her poems...I know she is from Jakarta, Indonesia and like Becca said, she is a real sweetheart and an extremely talented poet...As for the other stuff, I agree with Ruben...They're probably just bored and spoiled kids getting some kicks and showing off - Tim

    I saw those names and was really shocked considering the censor won't allow those words in the comments . xx

    Hi Harry. Hope February is good to you. I just completely ignore ugly people. Those in the real world and those here. I bet it makes them angry when one does not respond. Take care, Jancarl

    This is a shame. I came from Lulu which was a great site until people started abusing it and then it went away. Now that i came here I am hearing the same thing. I haven't experienced it yet. I too do not understand these sick minds. Their lives must be really empty.

    Dear Harry, Hope this finds YOU and YOURS Healthy and High in the Spirit. I have not been a victim on the Soup; but my regular E-mail. Three times since Oct. I have gotton deroggatory remarks telling me to leave the SOUP to make room for real POETS.When I reply back I get that log-in has not been taken. I am baffled as to why anyone would be so mean. They are definitely not poets. I'm off to read PD's blog LOVE ALWAYS and FOREVER YOUR Eternal Liege ...Harry

    harry, I think you saw the same guy I was seeing. I blocked him immediately. That's too bad about Sukmawati. I sure hope it was not one of those horrid non poets who was making vulgar comments that drove her away, but even worse would be if it was for another reason that she left, such as a regular soup member hurting her? It's very strange to wonder where a person goes when they just disappear that way!!

    Hmmm....I am not aware of these issues, probably because I am not around all that often anymore. Although...I did, a few weeks back, see a very derogatory poem that I did report to PS. Best wishes, Harry. Hugs, Catie :)
