So these things are moving from hobbyist status to collector status, which in the future will make them impossible for hobbyists to acquire for a reasonable price. The same thing is happening in the VW world. A hobbyist used to be able to pick up a restorable pre-1968 VW bus for a couple of hundred dollars, but that is changing to thousands.

Oops Was just about to post off CC to you after getting my life organised again (something about ex and taking everything and not giving me anything had me concentrating elsewhere.)

Humblest apologies Aly.

NEVER trust women!! Trust me on this one. You can to a degree, but they're scheming nasty twisted pieces of work underneath once they get going. Men tend to be more up-front. If anything I'd say they're more emotional than the women. I wouldn't trust them either though.
Oh I'm so sorry Karl. Don't worry, you're so much better off without her. Come and join us here, we'll cheer you up.

Was that your auction Bonus? If it was, then drop me a mail.
jkolak wrote:A quote from Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn is along the lines that the line between good and evil does not run between nations, because then you could say those countries are bad, and these countries are good. Nor does it lie between communities, because then you could put all the bad people on the other side of the tracks and keep all the good people on this side of the tracks. No, he said, the trouble is that the line between good and evil goes down the middle of each human heart, so that each individual person must choose between good and evil.
Desty wrote:That's a really nice quote It also reminds me of a nice (and NSFW) piece, "How not to fail at life", which points out that "Human beings are programmed to notice the imperfections of others more than the imperfections of themselves", which is an important thing to consider so that we hopefully learn from our mistakes rather than ignore or deny them.
