    Ah, the devine and illusive Chi_townPhilly decides to sprinkle some fairy dust on this community. How charming! Good to see that some of our moderators havn't completely fallen by the wayside (hint hint hint @ Frederik).
    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.

    What system are you using I understand Windows 8 is ready??
    But I'll try to be a decent listener, too. What's new with YOU(?)
    I have just come to the conclusion that I will never be any good at Golf and it has only taken me 45 years to arrive at it, but I am exceptional good at consuming Beer and Red Wine not at the same time you understand.

    No- not on Windows 8... but we have two new machines [yea! before, we were sharing one] and got a secured wi-fi hookup from the prominent Philadelphia-based local cable company.

    I tried, but couldn't get any traction with golf. Too much nervous energy. However (I hasten to add), I grew up in a family of golfers, absorbed the traditions of the game- and admire the folks who do it well... and the people who participate enthusiastically.

    Love your remark about brew! My major vacation this year was to Cincinnati Oktoberfest (the largest outside Munich, I'm told)- so it should be obvious that I'm partial to a stein or two (or is that a stein and a few [more])?

    I have spent 62 years finding out I am not that good at anything. Does not stop me from enjoying it though. Who was it said that golf spoilt a good walk. Oscar Wilde?
    My heart surgeon told me to drink red wine as it was good for me. Who am I to argue.

    In the office (now 10.00 am) and raring to go. HAHAHA

    Have not been on the forum so much lately due to re hash of cottage in preperation for Christmas and the American invasion, my youngests graduation, and work.

    Must get a dog, as this country seems to be going to them.

    Dustbins not emptied this morning. Some strikers hanging about the streets.

    No change there then

    Colin, maybe you'd be better off becoming a night owl, then you'd be around same time as us in the mother country; seeing as how I was still awake at 3am, I didn't surface until 10am so I missed connecting with you.

    - - it happens.
    Cheers MIKE.

    Hey Teddy, there are a couple people with skype here, so I'm sure you'll find someone to chat to.

    Colin, bear in mind that when you're eating lunch in NZ @ 2 p.m., we (some of us) in Europe have already had supper and are sleeping (or at least we should be), as you're 12 hrs ahead of us.
