Far far better advice from Mark Twain for the lad/lass is “the secret of getting ahead is getting started”.

Yes, you free spirits, you pioneers, explorers, adventurers, you trail blazers. And Mark Twain, eh? And where is he now?

Getting, for the record the “gruesome twosome” in all their aliases are, and have been for some time, filtered. Life is too short to waste time on them. As Mark Twain said “Life is short, break the rules, forgive quickly, kiss slowly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably, and never regret anything that made you smile. Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” That is exactly what we are doing.

Sliotar must be the same person as MEANWHILE, because he has the same view on the bonuses and on getting.

Yes - £10 Billion. Easy for KKR. Just imagine those bonuses for the boys. Of course Gettingmatureslowly's LTIP is mummy giving him/her an extra Pound's pocket money.

We established a long time ago that Meanwhile is not very capable with numbers and can’t do maths! And it’s so obvious that Sliotar is Meanwhile - always posts just after Meanwhile and always mentions one of Meanwhile’s favourite topics such as Director bonuses or ‘£3 by Xmas’ - in this case he mentions both!!

...The 10 million MRO market cap is bite sized… ??? Are we talking about the same company here? Or have you mixed up your M's and your B's? T

The MRO share price seems to be levelling out close to its price 2 years ago but still below the 232p trigger level where the boys on the Board will start to earn on their current LTIP. In a favourable environment they seem to be struggling with value creating disposals. So in everyone's interest the Directors should consider following Walgreen Boots and team up with KKR or one the other real private equity players and take MRO private. The 10 Billion MRO market cap is bite sized compared with the 60 - 70 billion for Walgreen. With the new private structure and the experts from KKR alongside them the MRO boys could earn some real money and make 42 million bonuses look like small change. Assuming a 50% acquisition premium even those MRO shareholders who came in with GKN would show a return. Oh! And we might even see £3 by Christmas.

The Mutual Admiration Society is now back in full swing. This follows the self-enforced run-to-ground of certain members, for a period of time, due to the setbacks at Burford and at PLUS500 (MINUS900). I would just like to add my confirmation of how wonderful I think you four individuals are.

Looks good for the year ahead: - MRO pushing on - Boris on track for a decent majority - Brexit will be done - Nice chunky LTIP into the GRS bank account again All is right with the world...

I agree Losos. They are doing a lot with additive manufacturing, and have now got into plastics. I’m glad it wasn’t sold. In fact I am very impressed with what is happening in Aerospace and Sinter. Auto is a bit quieter but they are obviously positioning for the electric market. It just shows what the previous GKN board could have done, and didn’t.

Thanks B+ - GKN had a 'sinter powder metal' business a long time before the MRO takeover but it never seemed to go anywhere. There was even talk about selling it off at the MRO takeover time. Now it seems that MRO have given this division it's head and they have come up with some interesting new markets for the process. I like the idea that they are headquartering it in Holland thus bypassing any (possible) Brexit negatives. Note that I say 'possible' because non one knows what the Brexit scenario will deliver but I'm absolutely convinced we need to get it sorted PDQ, whatever the outcome things cannot be allowed to drift on for another three months, let alone another three years haha..

This news release from GKN Additive is for Losos GKN Additive has announced it is preparing to locally produce metal powders for additive manufacturing in Europe after identifying a high demand. The company will look to supply metal additive manufacturing powders through its GKN Additive Materials business segment at its Hueckeswagen facility, which already houses a team of GKN Sinter Metals experts. It believes by locating itself closer to its European partners, they will be able to achieve quicker turnaround times. GKN Additive Materials, which was set up after GKN Additive and GKN Hoeganaes merged their expertise, is warehousing standard additive manufacturing powders, such as 316L, 17-4PH and 20MnCr5, but will also work to develop custom materials specific to customer needs. The Hoeganaes side of the GKN Additive Materials recently completed the first trials of producing water atomised additive manufacturing powders in its high-volume facility in Buzau, Romania. Alloys to be produced during these trials include ANCOR AM 4600 and ANCOR AM DP600, low alloys steels which are both used in automotive and structural applications. Research groups in Europe and customers in North America are currently evaluating these materials. The primary motivation behind the company’s increasing presence in Europe is to enable its customers using additive technologies to reduce time-to-market. GKN Additive says it hears of customers often struggling to forecast prototyping projects enough to allow for a four to six-week lead time, working off one-week powder requests. By positioning itself closer to these companies, GKN will now be able to deliver powders more efficiently and react to subsequent requests more quickly.

Losos is back! What a relief from all those dull posts about directors’ bonuses and wallet photos. All we need now is a post from ‘hvs’ about toilets and people on benefits!

Yes, the good old days may be returning. - Bragging and other rubbish from the 3 stooges. - 'Horse & Hound' news from Losos. - Expert analysis of the market from Minerve. - A portfolio of attractive Wallet Photos from myself. - MRO shares driving forward. - PurpleBricks about to fall backwards.

Glad to hear from you Losos. Yes MRO doing ok. I’ve also bought into Martin Sorrell’s S4 Capital which is well in profit, particularly with a bonus issue.

GRS - "Just need Losos to post now and it’s a full house...then Minerve will emerge!! Ha ha" Nice of you to remember me :- Have been absent for a while partly due to health matters which I don't want to expand on, Minerve would likely be in his element handing out death wishes and such. Not that I would read them since he is permanently blocked haha. The share price has just gone above my break even cost so since MRO was occupying a slightly larger percentage of overall portfolio than I usually like to see I took the opportunity to top slice. Still holding the remainder, and of course still reading yor posts, and Yertis, B+ and a few others, keep up the good work.

Always attend our local Remembrance Parade and service. Usually in the parade but took a back seat this time and watched from the sidelines. Excellent turnout.

Yertiz, I take it you went to a Remembrance service yesterday. We went to the Cheltenham Parade and Service as we regularly do. I was amazed by the Numbers - literally thousands - who attended on the Promenade. The largest number of people I have every seen there, and lots of young people.
