My avatar is from one of Paul Kidby's fantastic illustrations. This one, of course, is Fred Colon, possibly my alter ego. I have collected a lot of Paul's work online and use them as rolling desktop pictures. My signature is from an old BBC radio comedy show called 'Round the Horne'. One of the characters,Rambling Syd Rumpo, played by Kenneth Williams, gave gardening advice usually concluding with the phrase 'Oi think the arnser loys in the soyl'.
I think the answer lies in the soil, ooo arrr!
