I also noticed that you've been with us for a year now so Happy Anniversary too!

Thanks A (can I call you 'A') that's nice of you. I suppose I have a different point of view of many things, being over here in the UK.

 

And I didn't notice the anniversary. Thanks.

 

Geoff.

I'm leaving the hair-bleaching till my 60th birthday, but I may roll my trouser leg above the knee - only one of them, mind. Both would be too powerful!

Thanks, Mike - and you know, I don't think I've ever seen Bill Gates *not* smiling.

 

Maybe he's The Joker!

Oh, I thought it went "The words of the profits are written on the studio walls...". At least that's what Geddy Lee says. ;):D

As musicians, we must heed the prophet's word on profits.

 

Glory to the Geddy!

 

I've lashed out and spared no expense (whatsoever) on a new avatar.

My beard's going platinum, all on its own.

 

You & me both, Mate. Funny that - my hair (what's left of it) is brown, as is the chest hair (enough already) but my beard & moustach, starting from beside my ears, have gone silver (or platinum - no grey at all!!!).

 

I suppose we're the human equivalents of a Silverback - The Silverbeard!!!!

 

:D

And an awesome avatar it is, Geoff. :D I'm guessing that's you ca 1950?

 

I have always enjoyed reading your posts. I look forward to your next 1000. :thu:

Thanks, LP - and it's probably nearer 1957 - I'd be about 10 there, at the glorious resort of Saltcoats on the Firth of Clyde.

 

My old avatar was me in Whitley Bay, near Newcastle, in 1950, and seemingly I bumped into Noel Coward at Newcastle Station on the way back (although I have no idea why Noel Coward would be in Newcastle).

My wife's family is from Darlington. That's not too far from Newcastle is it?

Yes, Darlington is in the North East of England as is Newcastle. I suppose in terms of distance, you guys in the BIG US think they are near each other, but over here, we don't really consider them to be neighbours. About an hour's drive at British speeds (70 - 80 mph), I suppose.

May I also thank the guys who joined in and we all had a collective laugh. I really value the camaraderie in this forum.

I'm not in the "Big US", I'm in the "often cold Canada". :D Oh and we use kilometres per hour here.

 

Just out of curiosity, what is your max. speed limit? Ours is 100Kph here.
