    And you are this week's MOTW!

    Chris of Arabia!

    You know what that means?
    You have to answer each and every question our members ask, no matter how silly, impossible, boring, normal or whatever else they are!
    And we may demand you go take photos for us!
    And then you MUST go take them :greenpbl: !

    Like:
    How old are you?
    Where are you from?
    Where do you live?
    Where did you go to school?
    Who was the teacher you hated most?
    Which was the subject you loved?
    Did you ever excel in anything?
    What's your biggest pet's name?
    What's your smallest pet's name?
    Are you married?
    Children?

    Take a photo of your front door.
    And of your dirtiest shoes.
    And of the washing machine while it is running.
    And of a plant in your garden.

    So?
    Are you ready?

    Members? Are you ready to ask him all sorts of questions?

    Here we go then!!!

    (And sorry this starts a day late, we've had major connection problems yesterday, actually were without the internet almost all day - the same happening today, by the way, until now)

    Are you willing to then answer to even more questions?

    Assuming that you do cook, indeed, give us the recipe for you favourite four-course-meal.

    What is your favourite drink?
    Which drink has given you the worst hang-over ever in all your life?

    How often have you been in hospital?

    Folks!
    ASK!

    What's your dream vehicle to own/drive?

    I think the current count is 15, but I'll have to check. Only made (assembled) 2 of them though

    I can cook reasonably well. A legacy of too many hours spent watching my Mum, being in the RAF and being between spouses.

    I can account for a little web design, rock climbing, hill walking, 5-a-side football (though ill advised these days), assembling my own PCs, some DIY when in the UK and tending my Koi when back home also. There's also the project management, but that's more of a hobby these days

    Oddly, that's not one I can really do. Being a bit on the conservative (small 'c') side, I tend not to get myself into situations where that's likely to arise. Any that I did get into, almost certainly didn't involve a NAAFI, a guest female, the colour of their undergarments, a complaints book and a barbed wire fence, or the alcohol that started off the whole sordid charade.

    Yes, apparently

    Four courses might actually stretch me a little, but I do a nice Amatrice sauce with pasta, and could follow up with a Lime & Mascarpone Torte, maybe something with chicken livers to start?

    Tea, one sweetener & semi-skimmed milk please

    On occasions, gin, Black Bush and Guinness spiked with double vodkas

    Assuming we're ignoring out-patients, just once where they actually did anything - that was on 17 May 2006 when they did an angiogram and fitted me with a stent.

    Bacon sandwiches, greenery, trees, rain, decent shopping, being near the sea, the Lake District, climbing/walking, going to watch Stoke City football matches

    I'm not really that much of a petrol head, so long as it gets me from a to b in reasonable comfort and has a decent sound system, I'm happy. I'd rather like to give a Porsche 911 a go though. I'd actually much prefer a motorcycle, most likely a Kawasaki or a Ducati.

    Home, for good.
