Congrats good sir.

It was indeed your good self who opened my eyes to the world of Indian pens, and I thank thee most graciously. :notworthy1:

It’s a well kent fact that Scotland (The Land Of The Rising Water) has the most beautiful, picturesque, colourful, history laden landscape in the world.

It’s just a shame that you can only look at it through a rain soaked car window.
 
Every cloud though,  If there was no rain, there’d be no RAINBOWS.

 

My top tip:-

If you are walking the dog through mountain bike country.....don't wear headphones.

I think this quote from Star Trek: Generations sums it up nicely:

 

Riker: Lieutenant Worf, the charges and specifications are one: Performing above and beyond the call of duty on countless occasions, and two, most seriously: Having earned the admiration and respect of the entire crew.

 

Picard: Mr. Worf, I hereby promote you to the rank of Lieutenant Commander, with all of the rights and privileges thereto. And may God have mercy on your soul.
