  • Jocko, what a shame to part with your own fine workmanship. I do understand to some extent though about space and "stuff". As a professional painter, many have asked aren't I sad to part with a piece when it's finished, don't know about you but that…
  • Derek, great to hear your gig was such a success and that the nail held out through it all!It certainly looks bad, here's hoping for a good recovery - soon!

  • Well Reg and Derek, so far I think it's a draw for the most inspired lyrically challenging post on the forum, but keep 'em coming I'm loving it!   What was the subject? Oh yeh . . . 
  • Réa Hi,I agree with the previous comments, but have a question about the marks. Are they ON the surface, or is the surface missing? The older models used to go green in colour when eroded by sweat. It was the copper content in the bronze particles s…

  • Lanc, thank goodness, here there's no trees, no decorations, no hype, but there is a log fire burning and there will be plenty of good but simple food throughout the festive season - and only this week the shops put up "Christmas Decs'"   So "play t…
