Hi Paul,

Lovely to here from you, hope you are well.  There's no UK group at all now I'm afraid. Phil did away with all of the groups, ooh, I'm guessing a couple of years back now, so everything is posted on the main forum.  Be great to hear your thoughts though so please feel free.

Keep in touch.

God Bless.  Lorraine

Hi Paul,

Good to hear from you.  Yep, there are still a few of the old UK faces who are here reguarly and some that pop up now and again.  I wasn't active on the site for a couple of years, I guess I thought people were sick of hearing my comments and I missed the old faces, but here I am, back in full swing, a bit older but not necessarily wiser :)  Hope you come back as a regular.

God Bless.  Lorraine

Ha - no I just checked my home emails at work. However, my workplace is like the Marie Celeste today - it's a university so many people are on holiday, sorry I meant study leave ;-)

Hi Paul - thanks for adding me as a friend. Like you I am also a middle aged guitarist who still feels 22 (ish)!  Trouble is, I think I'm becoming more radical as I get older :-)

I like your choices of favourite music too.

God bless - James

Hi Paul,

Welcome to WTR's "Old and Wrinkly!", I hope it becomes as good as the one you ran on HMI.

HI Paul, Yes that spot is just over an hour from my house. In these parts it is a fairly famous hiking and recreation spot called the Columbia River Gorge. That hike climbed nearly 5000' in about 5.5 miles. It was one of the most challenging hikes I've ever done, but the view was worth it.

Great to meet you here in Cyberspace. Blessings!
