hey, I'm on my way to 10K posts too - I'll just post a reply in every thread whether on not I have anything constructive to add or I'll just add the generic +1. As for the rest of us, I'll say quality is better than quantity.
I was looking at your mosaic a few minutes ago, chas, and my son asked if that was a picture of me. I told him no, but there is some similarity. Here is the closest picture I could find that might match up with yours. Maybe we are brothers?
Sadly, you never met MacNutt here in ehMacLand. You two might have liked each other, especially since he lived on Salt Spring Island. The bottom picture is of me seated above many of his books, including "The World According to MacNutt". He was a fine person, and is missed by many. You passed him on the posting list without ever knowing him. Paix, mon ami.
