    Default Still here!

    Hey all,

    Just a little note to say I'm still here but have been lurking for a while as I haven't had the time or energy for much forum stuff. Had to deal with some family bereavements and the subsequent followup for most of the last 6 months and that has meant taking a bit of a break from things.

    Now life is back to some semblance of normality (important disclaimer *excludes all reference to the current state of this country) :-)

    In the meantime, I have not stopped listening to good music and have a backlog of food and whisky to catch up on!

    It was the weakest practical joke since Cardinal Wolsey got his nob out at Hampton Court and stood at the end of the passage pretending to be a door!

    Yes, I too had noted your absence Tony, but like others here who have not posted for a while, I assumed you were just keeping your head down - or maybe were spending more time stargazing.

    Sorry to hear of your family bereavement; my condolences, but good to hear you are back with us again.

    Take care

    I'd be lying if I said I hadn't done any stargazing, as that's the thing that has kept me sane for the past 18 months! :-) I've given myself some new kit as a 60th birthday present to myself. Back into proper imaging with a fully automated mount and a choice of scopes.
    Will be posting some of the latest crop at some point soon.

    Certainly haven't stopped cooking either, will have to do a continuous 'dump' (inappropriate phrase) of my recent endeavours! :-)
