1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    A couple of vintage Sears Perma-Prest short-sleeve BDs for sale on US ebay. Still in original packaging. Not my taste in colours though.
    They work out at £27 each delivered for those of us in Blighty. The seller is blt2206.[​IMG]

    A sad admission

    Today, I hit 60.

    My beloved, of 35 years - bless 'er - ordered two fat bastart sizes of Baracuta Harringtons... none of which make me look less than a fat bugger - despite shedding 40 lbs, recently.

    They can go back, fortunately, and at near £300 why not?... but, I will persevere with the weight loss regime - apart from this week where I will kick the arse out of it - and maybe, by July/August I may look 'not bad'.

    Great site, great memories - thank you, all!

    Wow, Well Done Ed

    40lbs is good going. (As is Hitting 60 ;) )

    I've recently lost about 3 stone, and It isn't easy.

    Have a Happy Burpday (well what's left of if)

    Thank you, all - it's been good... nah, it's been great. :D

    Those of you who have heard of 'The Priory', I've only made my efforts of weight-loss and soberiety is 'cos of this place.

    Nutter? Aye, maybe. But depression and obsession, OCD and anxiety is more common that we all know.

    You lot, my 'pals', if in doubt... see a quack - it's more common than we would think. :embar:

    I look forward to cracking on with this as we move on... to use the Scottish, salute... Slainte!:satisfied:

    (BTW: yes, after 131 days, I'm back on the piss, albeit temporarily.) :slayer:

    In '69 a lot of the Gear I desired was not available in my size.Today I have more stuf that I don't wear,than what I do.All of it is meaningless Ed unless you are alright inside.Happy Birthday, Good Health for the years ahead.

    In the words of Billy Butler:


    I've been tryin' to reach my goal too long to give up on my journey now

    And I believe that I'm on the right track

    Say I believe that I'm on the right track

    I'm gotta keep on steppin' never looking' back

    I believe that I'm on the right track

    I'm fazed by the braces-and-rugby-shirt images. I've never seen the like before. Suddenly I'm reminded of the kid in the parka and striped rugby shirt who seems to get in the front of every crowd scene in Quadrophrenia - I can't remember striped rugby shirts as any part of mod or skinhead or suedehead gear. Someone post and prove me wrong. Roy's pic of the Italian-made FP brought back into my memory the chunkier, more open-weave FPs that some guys wore back in the day. I'd forgotten all about them.
