    You be careful young Mr Drawing Board Man with your finely tuned skills both artistically and engineering wise... My Christmas Card list is about to be compiled.

    I will have you know I am NOT an "American Boy", merely a holder of an American passport (together with my UK one)... :RollEyes:

    I did not choose to leave school early, they suggested it would be a good idea... :Rofl1:

    and you should refer to Man City, not as "MC" but as the "Wonderful and Mighty Men from The Cathedral of the Enlightened Ones" aka "The Crusher of Spurs, Bale or no Bale..." :thumb:

    OK?

    JJ :Cool:

    Hey JJ, hit a nerve did I? I love the young bit though, I think we are not so distant, either in age or content.

    I gave up the drawing board for the computer a long time ago, reluctantly I might add. My finely tuned skills are probably 3D form rather than business, which you might appreciate.

    Crusher of Spurs I accept, Bale or no Bale. You'd like him though, N'est pas?

    Mr. Yankee Doodle Dandy, did you sit the SATS or not, my son did! He got into UCSB, had a great time there.

    Anyway, I have now completely lost the thread of this post and think I should congratulate Manchester City for something, what I'm not sure?

    Do I give a .... about your Christmas card list, do I fu... ( I do, I do, said the actress to the bishop, ho ho ....) :BigGrin: :BigGrin:
