Is it just me, Maria, or have you just changed your avatar in the last couple of hours? (Yeah, I'm up doing stuff I should have done ages ago :laughter: )

I go free-hugging quite a lot, so next time I thought I'd bring a "Smile! There's no hell" sign, too. Also, smile is exactly what I did when dismissing hell. :D

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

Hi Teech, I thought your picture depicted you in tights al la pirate dress, hence my comment about Edward Teech. Sorry if I got it wrong.

In case you didn't recognise him, it's Keith Moon. He's kinda photogenic in the early days, and certainly played a mean beat.

Felt like a change, so I've retired the donkey. I'm the one in the middle. It was 1966. The lifebelt says DARWIN, 'cause that was the name of the ship.

At last! I had secretly promised to myself not to interact with you until you kept the donkey.
This picture is refreshing and it gives me a sense of ....we are the future!
It was 1966, i.e. when I attended my military service ....can you spot the difference?!

Mine is just a Florida Linux "Tux" penguin that I use on our Linux forum. He's reading a book on Linux. :smile:

I chose mine because "Weasel's Ripped My Flesh" is my favourite album cover of all time. Never listened to the album though. Maybe I should.
This is also my twitter avatar. For those who don't know, Weasel's Ripped My Flesh was by the Mothers Of Invention.

<Useless information> My second favourite album cover is "Happy with what you have to be happy with" by King Crimson.
