O.K. First and foremost, no one informed me that the "group" picture was about to be taken. Second and second most, someone asked me the where'a'bouts, no name no pack drill, it would be wrong to Tel...sorry, that should be tell.
As I was being helpful and indicating, Chad decided to Flash (naughty Chad) and took the picture, the result of which you can all see. A fine handsome bunch to be sure.

Talking of flashing, did you hear the one about the two old ladies sitting on the park bench. A man stopped in front of them and flashed, full tackle out, and ran off. Apparently one of the old ladies had a stroke, the other wasn't quick enough, but one had a stroke.

Regards. Peter.

At least you were in focus, I've been pixelated like a criminal, told Chad not to use the ST4 tracking camera

A wise decision Tom. Remember, a coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only one.

Seriously, I know everyone will join me in thanking Chad for taking the pictures. Without his efforts, we would not have any.

(Shifty...I mean Chris, you look quite good "pixelated").

Regards. Peter.

Many thanks Peter,

to quote a famous saying from Black adder.

"I have a cunning plan".............

My grand daughter, Lolly, will receive a new digital camera for her 14th birthday in July, which has a very nice panoramic setting, its a great camera ( i know because i tested it prior to her receiving it).


Lolly, asked if she could come along to our next meet up at next years event, so i agreed, and we will bring that camera along with us.Cunning or what??.

As for Chris, well, what can i say, except that he obviously is not one to keep still while having his photo took, shifty indeed. Perhaps those prison wardens from Dartmoor prison had tracked him down.

BTW, Peter,did you email that chap about those Pods for your observatory??????.

best regards,

Tom.
