    Indeed. When my friends or people question the price it makes me think how obscene car buying, or designer gear, can get.

    Music is a passion, daily listening enjoyment. How can you put a price on that? Be it cars, watches, computers, fishing, it all can get expensive.

    I couldn't agree more Neil, a 3 watch will be virtually as accurate as a 10K one.

    As for this current competitive SUV competition for style in ' Look how smart I am in my big sleek car with such slitty dark windows you can'e see me',yuch to the pretentious idiots, and women's handbags . . . .???

    Music is also an art which offers social commentary, and insights into feelings about life, and when the music is concordant with the words it can be so powerful and stimulating.

    Men have their gadgets, women have their shoes and handbags. Probably best to let sleeping dogs lie there.

    It's rather stereotypical, and not a little sexist too, to lump all women into the category of vacuous 'clothes freaks', as if they lacked the capacity to be interested in anything else...

    I can assure you that Del has many other interests/passions, and stuff to spend money on, than just shoes or handbags!

    It's such a fine line between clever and stupid.

    I wouldn't take it too seriously. Not all men are gadget geeks either. I think we all know that these generalisations are just that, despite a grain of truth, and I doubt any offence was intended.

    Bugger; had a feeling I'd gone wrong there. I hate gadgets (too thick to understand how they work) and my porch is awash with shoes. Imelda Marcos' spirit lives on in a transvestite Norwich suburb. Upon my many soles !
