      Apropos of nothing, I’ve configured a Google map which plots approximately where our readers post from and put it here: https://www.shootuporputup.co.uk/shoot-up-on-the-map/

      Given I don’t know where you most of you live, the map only lists me at the minute. If you’d like to be included on said map (and why wouldn’t you?), then either reply below with your town (I’m not going for pin-point accuracy here, it’s not a stalker’s charter) or email me.

      We’ll see if this is slightly interesting or maybe it’ll fizzle out like quite a lot of my hair-brained schemes!

      Half way between Coventry and Rugby. Not Coventry. I DO NOT LIVE IN COVENTRY (are you listening Coventry and Warwickshire PCT? No? Thought not.)

      Put me down as St Helens, that should be vague enough to keep the stalkers away!

      Rather than post “I’ve just updated it” again and again; please just assume that I’ve done it!

      @Alison where about in St.H? That’s where I was born.

      I live in Poole, Dorset.

      Tim maybe you could produce a map of where they were diagnosed? Environmental factors used to be thought to contribute to diabetes… no idea really….could just be my age and my memory though!

      @mustard Ah, a local lass! I’m just outside Prescot, I was diagnosed at Whiston Hospital.

      [creepy voice] I know where you live . . . ahem, sorry for that momentary lapse. Please put me down slightly southeast of your own blue marker. Ormiston, East Lothian. If this is too specific, just mark me as Edinburgh as well. Happy Christmas! Bring on the stilton :)

      Hurrah for Stilton!!

      In other news, I’ve put a wee version of the map over on the right hand navigation bar.

      Usually I graze in Bredasdorp, but rather pin me down at the southernmost tip/Agulhas – in presence of possible members from Antarctica, Argentina, Australia & New Zealand, I can never be most austral of all, but at least I’ll lead the pack in South Africa :)

      @ckoei – you do rather spread out the distribution of readers on the map somewhat!

      Surely I can’t be the only londoner

      Ahem
      (you are the only londoner & don’t call me shirley!)

      If the diagnosis thing kicks off I could’ve briefly been found at the QE2 hospital in Welwyn Garden City, wasn’t my hospital but its where they admitted me to first!

      Okay, its freaky. I’ve looked at where my little blue arrow is, and its within a mile of my actual house, despite a fairly vague description… @tim has spies everywhere… :-)

      Hi, I am liking the map, but not much Scottish representation! Can I be filed under Grampian? Cheers.

      @Fergus – you are not far from me (Quick spin round the A627M and M60). I have friends in Rawtenstall.

      Put me down as just into Lancashire. NOT MANCHESTER ! But a London gal at heart. And yes I know QE2 in WGC and St Albans well.

      @ladyupnorth , @fergus ah, some north western types, excellent. Do either of you fancy venturing into the bright lights of Liverpool on April 14th so we can see you in real life? https://www.shootuporputup.co.uk/2012/02/shoot-up-meet-up-liverpool/

      Good chance I will get there, I’ll let you know as soon as it is definite.
      Can I just ask what the protocol is – does everyone get their own drinks or is it a rounds-get-bought sort of occasion ? (I will have to forgo my favourite Southern Comfort as I would be driving).

    • #13855
      Tim

      @ladyupnorth – I don’t think we have a formal Shoot Up drink-buying protocol; in the past it’s been a mishmash of rounds and own drinks, so don’t worry you won’t have to fork out for drinks for ten people while you drink diet coke! :-)

      That aside it’d be great if you could come!

    • #13856

      @ladyupnorth We’re much more interested in your company than your drink buying skills, it would be lovely to see you there.

      Hang on – someone has a purple bubble – I want a purple bubble, it’s not fair if I don’t get a purple bubble, I wear purple all the time, everything I own practically is purple, even the dog has purple leads, collars and coats… what’s going on? Whose is it? How can I get mine changed? Hey, hey, hey?

    • #13889

      The purple one is a special one for the meet up. I could give you a purple one, but then I’d have to change everyone’s to purple so I didn’t show any bias.

      *snorts derisively* indeed; I’ll *snort derisively* at you if you’re not careful!

      Details of meet up here: https://www.shootuporputup.co.uk/2012/02/shoot-up-meet-up-liverpool/ It’s in Liverpool – as the purple blob would suggest :-)

      I’ll take the Cotswolds for my manor please, happy with what ever colour bubble you see fit.

      @megs – Cotswolds it is – I’ve put you near Painswick, that okay? Originally I’m from Wotton-under-Edge in the heart of said Cotswolds!

      And in an attempt to represent all of Asia in the group (or at least the 1.3 billion in China), please put me down in Guangzhou, China. Xie xie!
