This 31 year deceased, American gentleman and yours truly have two things in common. Firstly our birthdays; his a Wednesday, mine a Tuesday, March 5th, a mere 38 years apart. Secondly his success, or lack off, was directly down to his plucking ability. Mine depends on the situation, those involved and my aerial heroes the communist arrows.

I am posting this thread today, Sunday March 31st, rather than tomorrow, Monday April 1st ~ again for two reasons ~ firstly so that you know it is serious, not a joke and secondly so that the ED section of SN does not remain naked of fresh posts first, or second class, like this one. Threadbare? Never!

Here sit I on a cold, spring evening, the day a Tuesday, the time at the moment 2006 hours BST.

Sadly, when I wrote exactly one year ago in a VERY different world to that of today, I had no wish to see the ED section of SN die a painful death like the company itself ~ little did I know.

My attempt at humour washed up on barren shores. One year, 292 views and Z E R O Comments ~ says it all. New threads? You count.

RIP Derek Bailey and Elders of Elders.
