No cycling event is the same without Shameless.
Get well soon, mate.
Get well very soon Seamus!
Best wishes from Sweden
Seamus... all recliners in the north send their best wishes for a full recovery...
And all the best from the York posse.
Have just heard that Seamus is making progress but is still very poorly.
Will keep everyone informed how he's getting on.
Hang in there Seamus! You still haven't written anything for 'BentRider yet! If you can defeat a tiger with nothing but your bare hands a Moulton you can surely take this.
Well done Seamus, Steve will be most upset that you rate the front page and he only got the discussion forum. Hope you're both well enough for you to take the p**s out of him soon.
Come now, Seamus - enough of this lay-about lifestyle, just lying about, and on the National Health's nickel, too (well, if you had nickels, which is to say, if you also had buffalos, for a nickel without a buffalo just isn't a buffalo nickel, nor a bottle of bitter, neither)!
We in the colonies hear that England Expects Every Man To Do His Best, so, with that said, and knowing your record of, ahem, achievement . . . you'd best take it a bit slower, until you can. Achieve, that is As you no doubt will.
Fast mending, mate, and don't use too much Gorilla Glue. It's worse than not enough.
Ack! Pfft! Best wishes for a speedy recovery, Seamus.
Have just heard that he's in good spirits and has made some improvement.
His mate Ian has shown him the comments on here, so keep posting.
As someone who shall remain nameless said to me at York "Seamus has lost his voice? Every cloud has a silver lining" :-)
Get well soon.
Kevin Straw from SCITECH
Hi Seamus, heard about you not being well via Scitech group, were told not to post get well wishes on that site, but to send them to you direct, however lost the address so have gone down this road. I do hope you are feeling a lot better, it is obvious you have a lot of good friends and well wishers.
We miss your barmy humour, so hurry up and get 'up and at em'.
Loadsa luv xmasbaby, xx ( Val Horler, Broadoak Community School, Weston super Mare)
Heard about your illness. My thoughts, prayers and best wishes go out to you. Hopefully it will not be too long before your fit and well, ready to bring your humour back to Scitech. Hope to hear from you soon.
Seamus (The one from Northern Ireland)
Hi Seamus, another science tech here, all the best, we miss your advice and humour. Get well soon.
Paula Callam, Norfolk.
From she who must be obeyed...get well soon.
Miss your humour and school must be getting their own way in your absence - can't have that!
best wishes - Valery
Seamus, you are in my thoughts, Aileen sends her regards too, and we really want to see you at Bike Right, take care, get better and get back on the bike.
Get well soon!
Sorry to hear that you fell ill, i hope you will write something again soon. I have given the dutch trip on your site some thought and would like to mention one big secret in Holland. We are of course very anxious to receive visitors, but in fact the good life takes place in Belgium. They have many terrific beers, enjoy life in a more laid back style and on top of that there are many beautiful girls to cheer up the country. On top of that their language is much smoother.
Well, when you are on the road again I can suggest to participate in the Eco trip of 2006 which takes place in Belgium. I stole your remark on the dutch language by the way, in that remark you stated that our language has the aspects of a secret code. It is a very successful story to tell, and people tend to think that I am witty too.
On the other hand I forgive you the fact that you did hassle up the name of the statue of Jan Pietersz Coen who stands in front of VOC (eastindies) company in Hoorn. The story of the company is noted in http://members.lycos.nl/krane/ceylon/ceylonvoc.htm but the role of Jan Pietersz Coen was not always very beautiful.
Some other notes on the history of VOC, which places it a perspective of the local community http://www.historycooperative.org/journals/jwh/15.4/andrade.html

Seamus, sorry it's taken me a while to comment, I've been digging up the Wolds. Get well soon mate. It just isn't the same without you. Your alter ego, the tiger, also sends his best wishes. He had fun on the Velovisioneries ride on your behalf, and was last seen eyeing up Wobbly John's scampi in a hungry way...
All the best, we're all thinking of you..
Wishing you a speedy recovery, another scitech bod who appreciates your contributions,help, advice and humour. "Get well soon"
the rides are in place[sort & long]and the entertainment programme is well on the way to being sorted,for cyclefeast. 2005
hope you can still make it up north for the event of the year,
the bike right and longridge towers gang,all send best wishes for a speedy recovery. yours the pirate
Get well soon from Clive, Catherine, Ruth and Martin.

Younger and less witty sister
Get well soon Seamus from Mike and Eleanor. I'm looking forward to the next Byke Kultuur
Hi Seamus, I am so sorry to hear you have been taken poorly. Hurry up and get well won't you, cos Scitech's not the same without you! Till then you're in my thoughts and prayers. Love Su
Hi Seamus you must come to Cyclefeast 2005 as it's not much fun walking up the hills on my own.
Get well soon.
Hope your better soon, your in my prayers. Lorraine (scitech member)
For those of you who know the Big Fella well, I'm his Monday Night date...AKA Eldest sister.
His Nibs is doing well. Unfortunately he's still unable to speak...though he's trying hard.
I was helping him with the exercises that his speech therapist had left the other day. We decided that he should try to write down what he wanted to say....in anticepating a long note I thought I'd be helpful and "second guess" him. After several false starts he told me to "F**k O**" and gently stabbed me with his pencil. Nice to know that his personality has suffered no lasting damage!!
I do copy your good wishes and he really does appreciate them please feel free to email me directly if you'd like to pass on any longer messages at "firstname.lastname@example.org" . He'd be delighted to hear from you all.
Hi Seamus - missing you along, with 625 other Scitech bods. The site is getting too serious without you! Love Jude x x
Come on Seamus- get well soon! Sci-tech is too quiet without you!
Take goog care and do as you are told......!
Get well soon, stay possitive.
Sorry to hear of your illness but wishing you all the very best for a speedy recovery. Hope you can enjoy the summer break. Keep strong.
Get well soon, life as a technician is too boring without your views on teachers,student teachers,pupils and preproom antics. Oh, and the science bits are useful as well. make a quick recovery, we all miss you. lol, Bee.
another techie ,good luck , we need you back .T.C.
another techie ,good luck , we need you back .T.C.
Missing you on the scitech site. Joyce
Echoing the comments of all your Sci-tech colleagues - get well soon.
Like so many others- mega sad to hear you're poorly, but glad to hear you're making progress- hopefully see you back to full strength & keeping the rest of us techies in line [right behind you.... ] speedy recovery sunbeam.
Wishing you a speedy recovery Seamus. Tracey (scitech)
Get better soon Seamus the discussion group just isn't the same without you. Best wishes from Northern Ireland
Hope you're soon able to be up and at 'em, just think of the choaos "they" are wreaking while you're not there! Remedial counting classes will def. be on the agenda when you get back. Enjoy the summer, enjoy the Tour de France if you're watching and above all get well soon, it is too quiet without you on SciTech!
More best wishes winging your way from Hull. We'll keep your place warm.
Get well soon, glad to hear you're making progress.
From the techies of South Wales, Get Well Soon
Seamus, missing your comments on Scitech. Keep squeezing the ball!
From Great Bend, KS and formerly from Gourock, Scotland. Hope you are better soon! Your page is a great mix of information and humor.
Best Wishes Seamus for a speedy (well, speedier than glacial drift) recovery from the other side of the pond!
Seamus, I hear the speech therapist is giving you 'exercises.' Recommend you blow them off (this is justifiable, fricatives and labials are good) and practice on the Latin and vulgar (?) names of all the Naughty Bits - especially 'cloaca.'
Get well soon, Seamus. Auntie Sam is thinking of you with some very naughty thoughts.
I haven't seen anything posted here for a while. Even though I don't "know" him, I hope Seamus is doing well. I enjoy BKN. Regards D
Just to let you know that you are still in our thoughts. I think about you while I am here at this empty school needless to say I am one of your Scitech collegues. Hope your recovery is going well and I look forward to seeing your witty comments soon.
Best wishes Lynden at "work" Birmingham
he is on the mend paid seamus a visit on friday the 26th of august and apart from wieght loss
is looks fine,any one wishing up date please contact me ken davison
Glad to here you're a bit better Seamus.... was a while since we had heard anything.
Hey Seamus, how're you doing? It's been very quiet out in scitech-land, preparing for the onslaught next week. Was thinking of you thru the summer, hoping you're getting better all the time.
Hang in there. Rachel xx
I suppoded to be dead
