I hope so Nicko I have lots of wall space. I moved the good devil mask and the African spear the kid got me when he visited Africa on to a different wall freed up lots of space.

Hi, Nicko Thanks for the advice about getting into Open Linux Forums. Not sure what I did wrong, but could only read and was not able to sign in. Tried your method this am and it works like a charm. Look forward to more posts and whatever else you contribute.

Don't like to hear this at all.

But next time I do something for some one it will be dedicated to you.

...rancho...you've just been given an Aussie version of yer moniker...I'll swallow less flies when next I speak to you...

...mate there's been a major shift forward in lots of little things at the moment...basically better news than last weekend...and I won't know all of it for maybe a day or so but I'm on top of the world...that sounds like a good blues song eh...

...it appears I may not be ready for the firepit just yet...so I'll let everyone know what is going on...when I know...was it Albert King who first sang the line....'...I'm sittin' on top of the world...'?...I know Cream did a version on Disraeli Gears...

...GB, it's been a roller-coaster of emotions...

...last week all pessimism from various medicos...kidneys heading west in a huge rush...

...Monday it's all smiles and positive vibes...kidneys aren't as bad, or better than, they thought...

...reason...the fucking dye used in m'legs so that I could have a CT scan...

...been here nearly 4 weeks...shit, some marriages don't last that long...once I got thru' my first week, I'm positive that I'm not headin' for the firepit...I'm telling everyone...hey, I felt like shit and even thought that it was nearly over...but, hey, I'm a stubborn bastard and the Reaper is goin' to be waitin' a while for me...

...then a bloody spanner in the works...instead of going in to palliative care, I'm going home until...one of two people sharing a room with me has a bug that's resistant to anti-biotics...get put in a single room with visitor contact restrictions and have to provide 3 swabs...dunno when I now go home but I hope it's next week...i lost my terrific view of the mountains to the west and south...my view of any electrical storm that builds up down that way...had a bloody beauty on my 1st Sundee...but I'm making at least 5 people a day crack a smile or have a laugh...

...positive vibes, man...

...yer wooden be ded fer quidz...:-)
