Sounds lovely majomul. I love spring flowers, what made me smile was the warm sunny day, it feels like summer, and the wild violets are out in the garden.

I had to smile over being able to walk out my door at 6:30 a.m. without having to wear a coat or sweater. :D

I'm leaving the office in 20 mins, and I'm going to have to wear my jacket (got my tickets and stuff in it), but the cardigan is coming off.

Boiling here now.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

If you can fill the unforgiving minute,
With sixty seconds worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a man my son.

Here's his website:

Warning some of his stuff is a wee bit crude!

Oh yeah and my avatar is a pic he drew for me as a Xmas present representing the fact that I'm a Brit in Madrid. I intend to get it as a tattoo at some point to represent the time I have spent here in Madrid, my only tattoo so far represents the time I spent working in tourism, of my own design:
Image
Ok the bull represents Spain, the blue "eyes" indicated by blue arrows represent Turkey & Tunisia, the snow flakes in green circles represent Romania & Andorra, the red arrows spell my name in Greek (alpha lambda) AL representing Corfu. Also the ace of CLUBS is missing the cross bar in the A because my grampa R.I.P. used to drink in a bar called the Club Bar, both my brothers were born on the 8th, my lucky number is 12 (11 + 1 the two values of the aces which spell my name), my brothers' lucky numbers are 8 & 28 (11+1+8+8) and the whole hand is known as dead man's hand because it was the hand that Bill Hickock had when he was shot and nobody knows what the fifth card was which to me symbolises that you never know what's going to be next in life.

Been a lovely few days, wearing a jacket instead of the heavy coat. :D

A friend of my daughter posted a request on Facebook asking for people to send her a 3 second sound clip of them yelling "the zombies are coming" in whatever languages they can speak :lol:
Somehow "Tá na zombaí ag teacht!" doesn't seem to have the sense of urgency it ought to......
