Life updates wanted...
With the new format I am having a hard time staying abreast of the Clark family antics.  Nolan and Dennis, you should post a monthly or weekly short show touching on some personal event to draw us in.  For a while I felt like part of the family and the wisdom from Dennis is with out a doubt a benefit to anyone who would listen. 

Travelogues or stories about life adventures are most appreciated.  If you want to keep the art theme going then combine them.  They only need to be a minute or two.  I have learned heaps about the culture and mannerisms of immigrants from SA to NZ.  I am thoroughly entertained and am a better person for having joined the Paint Basket.

So what is the latest excitement?  :yippee:
Conceive it!  Believe it!  Achieve it!

 :2funny: Bryce.  You're a treat :clap: :clap:

A bit about myself during the past couple of weeks. I prided myself that for the last 7-8 years I never had a cold or flu. Then suddenly about 2 months ago I developed a terrible cough. Eventually I took off to the Dr to see what was wrong. After a good check-up he found that there was nothing wrong with my lungs or bronchial tubes. What I had was a sever attack of hay fever that affected my sinuses and the post nasal drip was affecting my vocal cords. Got over that - and guess what? Right at the moment I have a fabulous deep bass voice from the same, plus a head cold  :tickedoff:   Because of this I've not had the energy to go through the Forum Posts for a while. Did some when I was able to. I need to get this cold fixed up very soon as in a week's time Anna and I are off for a week down to Lake Taupo - Haven't had a decent break for a long time. Will be visiting  some volcanoes and craters and hopefully Mount Taranaki as well. Hopefully I will come back with some decent photographs for future projects. Maybe I'll add them to my facebook page.

Hope your time away will clear your head and you will feel great when you get back.

Take care.

   Oh dear, dear, dear!!      Do hope you get past it soon, wrap up warm, nice hot toddy, and off to bed for a nice rest. Must have you fit and ready for your holiday. Oh, one more thing....don't give it to Anna!            ;)
Cheers, Val
