Don't take this negatively, but you remind me of the old line "I wouldn't join a club that would have me".  I don't know about you, but in my life I've left a lot of clubs, bounced from a few bars and even as a child was tossed out of the cub scouts.  My mom was the Den Mother.

I don't really take anything personally...
BTW, I got kicked out of the Boy Scouts...I can't remember exactly why (not because I was gay, I'm not) but I'm pretty sure it had something to do with my attitude...which hasn't improved much over the years.

Further reason not to fear pink!

My bandana is now pink, but it used to be red when my wife made it for me - the sun bleaches everything except skin. With skin it has other plans.

My father lived in the tropics for a long time. I always noticed that his face was so strange compared to every one else around us. Back then you could at one glance recognize the westerners who had made their careers overseas and then retired back to Europe.

Cooter -

I don't know the other site (which I assume is Galbraith?) but I'm damned happy to see you posting again.

I Googled it and got the Rhythmic Gymnastics forum. Which is conjuring up some pretty disturbing mental images of Schewe.

Can someone tell me what the hell is this RG stuff ?

I thought I knew a lot, until last day when I was talking to a girlfriend about the BBC and realised that, for her, it had nothing to do with british broadcast
at all but big black c...
So I said, BBC guys are the best...and she answered: oh yeah!

( it could also mean bloody british columbia).

So what is this mysterious RG that everybody's been banned from?

Gosh all you youngsters make me feel old. I thought it was obviously the Rob Galbraith forum Cooter was referring to. Was it really so long ago that it dies?

Remember Eric, time is a collective illusion, like "self" or "my" or "I"

Anyway,

Now that Slobodan gave me the answer of this mysterious and archeologic RG forum from the Eon era, I'd add that the Coot post in this thread is a fake one.
Some wired entity posted under the Coot's identity but it's not James.

And I tell you why.

Proof number one: Coot always warned Rob C about not looking back, about the fact that the golden age is an illusion and that the best are the time we're living,
and that the most exciting buzz are forward. I suscribe to this point of view.
And suddenly, this nostalgic entity that took coot's indentity is writting memories about: once uppon a time in a remote remote lost period of darkness, sorry, darkrooms, and Ilford chemistry,
were a bunch of holly guys switching to digi with knights spirit
..etc.....doesn't sounds like Coot at all, init?.

Proof number twooo: Coot is texan. Texans have thick skins and fight. Impossible that a single guy can fire a texan from his horse.

Proof number trrreeee: Coot shoots Red One. What the Red one has to do with that? I needed a third proof of identity usurpation.
Red camera owners are having so much fun with their Raw video, Red rockets, 20 grands Cine Zeiss and 5000 points DR that they stand above the terrenal worries of still imagery and nikonism
stay behind technology.
(ask CB about his Red)

So Coot's Dodge Charger is not back...yet.

Your Right Fred.

Last year I only got to spend 2 weeks in our Texas studio.  

Was either in a plane or touchy feely L.A.  

This year I told myself every chance I had I would go back to Texas and already have spent 5 weeks there this year, off and on.

You'd think that would have helped, but instead I think I've turned into a left coast sissy.

I think California has ruined me, because the other night passing a Prius at about 95 mph on the 10 and thought, you know, those cars aren't that "bad" looking.

Next thing I'll be wearing hemp boots, listening to Adele and and growing my own cilantro.

IMO

Tell me about this Prius...
The other day I took a cab, it was a Prius. I had in mind restoring
A vintage Citroen DS, probably the most elegant car ever
Designed, Or a Ferrari dino 4 seats because I'm bored
Like hell with current cars. Them I was asking the taxi driver about this
Prius...it does a constant sound like a bzzzzzzz, a little
Bit like an electric girl legs shaver...
The taxi driver told me that they are very reliable, and
I should buy one to contribute to save the planet from
Global warming...

Nice to see you back.

I quite enjoyed the brief period when I could catch Californication on tv... But hell, I did think folks would have more sense than to drive an open Porsche there; I even had a model in Glasgow tell me that someone had tried to get in through the door of her little Mini at the traffic lights once - that was back in the early 70s and I don't think any of the local assholes had had time to learn that trick from the movies yet, so if they were already aware of the possibilities...

But anyway, what's bad about touchy-feely? We do it all the time in Spain - ask Fred! It feels nice (I don't know about Fred; I mean the system).

I was parked outside my dads house when an Audi went into the side of my rented prius at about 70 mph on a residential street. I heard it from the house, came down and found that the entire right side (drivers side for use brits) was heavily dented. I had a standing ovation from the rental staff for having knackered a prius when I took it back the next day! They gave me a Land Rover next time round as a reward Cheesy

Fred, are you mad? Or did you win the Euromillones?

Restoring cars is for rock stars or retired mafiosi. And they just pay a series of grunts to do it for them. Good condition E-Type will start at around 100 grand (pounds) and thereís always more to do. Itís like restoring a finca: triple the builderís estimate.

If you are bored, work harder. Iím very bored and I donít work at all. Learn the lesson. Restoring a car or boat isnít to reduce boredom, itís to find a mission (impossible) in life. My broínílo is dreaming about replacing a Lotus Europa he had in his early twenties; heís already got an S-Class stretched, Brabus, and his wife had an SLK AMG sheís just swapped for an A-Class. Why? Those rear-drive cars were useless this winter in snowÖ so itís back to basics for her. You see how crazy cars are? They are worse than people. If a people breaks you send it to hospital to get mended; if a very obsolete car breaks, you have to find somebody who has a workshop and can make parts for you, hopefully for less than it costs him to do it.

Find a mistress Ė itíll  be cheaper and possibly more fun. Youíre French; that should be easy.

1. They don't trust you with a car but can't find a legal way to refuse future rentals.

2. They have just worked a scam with the insurace agency.

3. They really are racist.

When did an LR become a reward, or did I just miss the irony?

Or...find a touchy-feely mistress who pays the Ferrari bills  Roll Eyes

You won't tell me that this music isn't better than listening to Adele in California: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5PN_UsfJqN4
Filmed with a Gopro

Ps: for the ones interested, the Dino 308 GT4 is the cheapest Ferrari in the vintage market (less than the Rob's Mercedes and way more interesting driving experience)  and far from being the worse. Vastly underestimated. It has 2 rear seats. Hand built.
