    AK, I was expecting three Wikipedia links there to establish whether he'd been tipped into that big bin in the sky - or not.

    Today I found that "Old Tiffie" was a reference to the Hawker Typhoon wwII fighter-bomber.

    Hope he is OK.

    I was just thinking about him this morning. Wondering if he has started binning his shop yet.

    I tried to find things unrelated - in keeping with his "theme" but believe it or not all the other links led back to this site and we could not have that lol

    I hope he's ok too.

    I wouldn't worry about it all that much considering he has done this several times here in the past.
    He posts on a regular basis for quite some time then without any warning (not that it's required) takes off for a spell.
    Has anyone tried sending him a PM?

    Probably got tired of being $#!+ upon by certain members. Tiffie did things his way, not what other people liked, which is OK.

    That's fine. He does have a bit of a way of making sure you cannot possibly miss his attitude and what "his way" is. That can be a bit much, even though we all like to put forth our opinions. He can be a bit of a bore about his "binning", you know.
