I did! I had two, straight from the freezer!

Thanks.

MrsD is currently in Lemoncello land -- her two best freinds took her away for a few days in Sorrento to celebrate her ??th birthday last month. She's been milking it for a whole month now!

I have no friends, so I'm at home with the dog! :D :D :D


Cheers,
Norm.

Happy birthday, Spectrum, and cheers for being there for me even when I didn't realise I needed it.

I would say "allow me to spin a yarn with only the mildest of apologies for those who have heard it all before, or who might read it on any other Sinclair-related forum"... but I re-read it and it looked so self-indulgent that it's probably best not posted in public, or at least hidden where only those who want to see it can see it. Plus, it has a dreadful confession for which today is about the least appropriate day to do so.

So I'll just stick with this FUN FACT: I was 1001 days old when the Spectrum went on sale.

And other than that, I'll crack open a celebratory bottle of elderberry wine this evening. I was going to do that tomorrow, over (Channel 4's cut-down re-run of) the Grand Prix, but as there's (Channel 4's cut-down re-run of) a sprint race this evening, I can justify it that way as well. And I'll have a celebratory curry, though that shouldn't be taken as an endorsement of Chris Curry, nor him having a punch-up with Our Glorious Departed Creator in the Baron of Beef.

Cheers and many hails to the computer that's been part of my life for 80.315% of its length - and it was already north of its fifth birthday by the time I found it.

So, just have some Curry and drink some of your Altwasser alongside and souls are going to be re-united (at least in your belly ;) ).
