Hi,

Chris: I think the singers are handsome people in every country and yours isn't exception. :)
Btw. you are certainly right what goes about connecting people.

Carlos:
I know that...
I think, It would be nice to meet you someday. Time to times I visit Tallinn but then I'm always to busy. But let's change our contact data and discuss this meeting thing when opportunity opens.

Regards,
Urmas

Getting ready for work in who knows what city. Every hotel room looks alike after a while. I've already written enough about me elsewhere, but thought Ralphy, at least, deserves the effort it took this old fart to learn how to post a pic from my Mac. I salute all of you who have done the same. Sincerely, Dennis p.s. I just noticed in the pic that there is very little hair on my right arm. Wonder why?

Yup. Kicking and screaming, most of the time.

OK! Here we gooooooooo........



That's me at a local 'hippie cafe' after a rather long and hard bike ride on a fine Sunday afternoon (needing a shave, I might add....).

Well, let's see. Maybe I'll go on a little bit more (don't know why this time should be any different than any other time...). 56 year old, live ~70 km west of Boston where I've been for ~10 years after moving here from way out in the boonies of rural Nevada. I do quite a lot of road bicycling and a fair bit of sea kayaking. Also play some pedal steel guitar, if you know what that is (it's that thing that looks like a big, giant, tabletop electric cheese slicer...).

Have always been drawn to the rocks, the trees, the hills, and have been making my living in some way related to that for some time. Used to map soils and landscapes, and then working in various earth science-related disciplines - research, teaching, industry - for some time now.

So - how could I not appreciate coticules???

Many thanks to Bart for putting this place together, for endless generosity, and for just generally being a good guy. Cheers!

Steve and Dennis,

It's nice to be able to put a face to the names. Thanks you for sharing. For a brief second I thought you worked on LoveBoat, Dennis! ;) You do remember LoveBoat, don't you?

Urmas, As a father of 2 little ladies, who sometimes grow up faster than I would like, I salute the family man withing you!

Now, if I only could figure out what the beer is, that Steve's enjoying...

Kind regards,
Bart.
Then the light shone, trumpets sounded and I got to the other side, where men shave with smiles on their faces, razors pop hairs, and a continuous choir singing «~~Keen and Smooth~~» is heard everywhere. (Matt)

Hint: It's not Chimay (and I'm not enjoying it!).












Seriously, it was recommended to me by the barkeep. It looks nice, but it turned out to be EXTREMELY high in hops. I felt like I had strapped on a feed bag and was trying to drink....:scared:

It wasn't Arrogant Bastard or Hoptical Illusion, was it?

Some people love them. I personally have decided that it's vile to put in so many hops and still call it beer.

I think it was Smuttynose Old Brown Dog ale, and I think I goofed: it was really malty, not hoppy. I just about couldn't drink it (but I soldiered on...). This was up in the Berkshire foothills around Montague, Shelburne Falls, etc.

Ah. Well, I still disdain overly hoppy beer. ;) When I was living in Massachusetts, all my European friends found it odd how hoppy most American beers are.

Steve,

I'll be in your neck of the woods next week, Raynham doing some training for work. I like it a lot up there.

Maybe if you have time, or the inclination, we could meet up.

Cheers,

Paul

I have a tentative trip down to Baltimore planned for sometime next week, Paul, but that hasn't firmed up yet. Barring that, I'd be happy to buy you a beer when you're in town next week (I will not inflict Smuttynose Old Brown Dog Ale on you). Hope you're flying into Providence - it's much easier than Boston. Give me a holler sometime at ekozoe at yahoo dot com.

I was going to fly into Providence but it was going to cost me about $400 more than Logan on such late notice (booked the flight today for next Tuesday). I'm only going to be free next Wednesday and Thursday. Stone Forge is a nice little restaurant there (I'm a sucker for their Lobster Bisque).

I like all kinds of beer (except fruity)... I even like Sierra Nevada's Bigfoot Ale :lol:

If it works out, that'd be pretty cool. :thumbup:

I'll shoot you an email tomorrow.

Nonsense. Nothing wrong with flying into Boston. And the traffic there is great! :D

Paul: If you get a chance to be in "Boston" for a bit, go to Colonial Drugs in Harvard Square. I'm sure you'll love it. (But I recommend not having your wallet with you at the time.)
