"Absolutely agree with you on that George. Being young, free and single is great and exciting in any time, though I believe we had better choices in certain aspects and were better fed than our predecessors ;0)"

"Thank you very much, Motown! Well you know, I have to blame somebody, otherwise it's harder to explain to my wife - a bit like a heroin addict who blames his junkie friends I guess, haha!"

"Extremely smart, Motown! Uploading such a picture 2 months before my wedding which is gonna be a bit pricey is not a good thing - I somehow suppressed the thought that I still need a smart brown cord blazer and now it's back, thanks for that! Haha!"

"... been in the City today; as usual braving the masses of beanie hats, beards and grotesquely stretched earlobes. Uhh... glad I´m back home. I like these trousers because of their very fine herringbone pattern."

"Think we have had this discussion before while it would have been fascinating to have been one of the originals. Think our time was equally new and exciting to ourselves and created as many good memories for us as the 60s did for the originals"

    Short Story

    There she was just walking down the street and I could see that she wasn’t just carrying but that she was loaded and if I could see it, in her hunched shoulders and deep thrust pocketed hands, then so could anybody else who had an ounce of intelligence and two seconds of experience. This street was full of people like that and most of them you wouldn’t cross the road to piss up their legs if you were a dog, because the general rule of the sea you swam in was that if somebody didn’t want to roll you then they wanted to bust you and that was okay because everybody understood.
