    Apologies for becoming despondent and stropping off. I'm back now and feeling more upbeat. Without going into the gory details there had been a few developments on the home front, combined with a stressful time at work which had caused me be less than patient and I was becoming someone other than myself, not somebody I liked at that.

    Anyway I don't think I was badly treated and hope those who may been on the receiving end can find it in them to forgive. Come to NEBO and I'll buy you a beer by way of apology.

    As I write I'm having some much needed time out from work and preparing for a little jaunt away with the love of my life. The sun shines on us, the birds are singing and whilst all the challenges are still there, I feel more up to taking them on the chin.
    NEBO 8 - Sat 6th May 2017, St George Hotel, Durham Tees Valley Airport. 10am til late.

    Nice one, Rich. As far as I'm concerned, it's all water under the bridge. We're all human, and so can 'flip' from time to time and let stuff get on top of us.

    Glad that things are looking up, mate, and hope you enjoy the forthcoming holiday with your good lady

    Marco.

    The perfect response. Maybe that should be part of the AoS ethos

    I love Hendrix for so many reasons. He was so much more than just a blues guitarist - he played damn well any kind of guitar he wanted. In fact I'm not sure if he even played the guitar - he played music. - Stevie Ray Vaughan
