I get a "does not exist" error message on the link above. I guess it's already too late for me. :cry:

I decided I needed a bit of a change so I roasted some Monsooned Malabar. That was a change!

Very strange, my original link works, someone (I blame Greenbean) must have spilled coffee over it.

I guess that your inability to copy the link correctly is nothing more than a sign of your advancing age, Pete.:wink: I understand your wish to divert the blame elsewhere so I will not comment further and simply correct the original link for you. Click here for the link Pete intended.

I feel pretty proud of myself being referred to as an ambling armadillo.

With lots of practice you could become a bobbing bobcat or even a rocketing rabbit. :D

I'm just back from France and have just seen this.
Best I could achieve was the Bobcat status which was a bit of a disappointment really. Let this demonstration of my failing powers be a lesson to you young blades who think that they are impervious to the ravages of mortality. Time passes so quickly and in my case it does seem that one day I was a young God trailing clouds of glory and the next, this wrinkly person mostly composed of various artificial aids. Sigh.............

I think that bobbing bobcat is a very creditable score, George. I doubt that many of the "young blades" could do better. :wink:
