Still awaiting paper subs copy of ME 4393 here (Burton on Trent)!
Should I be calling the office on Monday if it hasn't arrived?
Surprised that 4394 will be up on the website next week, when is it due in the post?

Hi There
Don't call the office that quickly.
Snow is probably to blame.
4394 has gone to printers.
On sale 31 December.
4395 has to go to printers by Wednesday.
regards david

OK, thanks David,
I imagined that 4394 must be in the post if it was going on the web.
I must refrain from looking at the web version as it will spoil the pleasure of reading the paper one in the bath.

Three ebay purchases made on Sunday arrived on Thursday, but hoover belts ordered on Saturday are still to arrive. Normally the latest ME would have been here on Tuesday.
We've had no problems with major roads in the Midlands, although some of the back roads have been dodgy. I guess its where things are coming from that is making teh running.

bit of a whoops with the links on the website front page.
under the front cover of MEW 172 it has a link for the contents, which goes to the contents of 171.
however the link in digital issues works ok so I can see what I'm missing due to this rotten snow, which we just had another inch and a half.
PS A Merry Christmas to everyone.
Wow, that was fixed fast.
well done to whoever

 My wife met a postman yesterday, apparently they suspended deliveries for health and safety, then decided they had better start again on Thursday, now it was icy again!
I saw a postman this morning - but not on our road, but they've brought the Sunday Post back. It would be nice to get ME every Sunday

Hi all,
Re my prev. moan 18/12 about ME4393+MEW172.
Monday,20/12, I was in Smiths, Churchill Sq., Brighton as soon as they opened. I counted 9 copies No.4393, 5 copies No.172 and approx a dozen (didnt actually count them) of January EIM. These are the dregs left after the weekend vultures.
I have all 3 by subs but `good ol` snailmail` still failed on Tuesday. I think that as EIM hasnt arrived, it must be our wonderful postal system, not myhobbystore.

What is happening in this country? A bit of snow and a bit of cold, neither of which would have given us a jot of trouble twenty years ago, stops everything. ME 4393 landed on the door mat this morning and people are saying they have received 4394 already!!
Time was nothing would have stopped our postmen, but successive governments have driven down moral to the point where most of them won't put themselves out - and who can blame them?
And what about our railways? Overhead lines down at Huntingdon this morning  and the ECML is stopped all day. Would never have happened with steam, or even diesel for that matter. Same problem. No spare capacity to recover from any problem.
