I can see a slight resemblance. But I'm better looking I think.

Okay Maggi and Mark, you got me. Just messing around with the new system. Here's the real (much more dashing than Craig Daniel) me with a glass of white wine, shaken not stirred (actually a publicity pic taken for the German edition of a recent book, The Hangover Survival Guide (entirely based on long and exhaustive personal research).

Yes, I've given my specs a polish and I can see that you are right! You and I have much in common, you know.... my modesty is one of MY most endearing features.

Oops! That should be Daniel Craig, not Craig Daniel! Too much well-shaken chardonnay. No Mark, I'm not booked. I have to go to Germany that week for a book launch.

What's this 'applaud' and 'smite' stuff by the posters' info? I guess it's to rate the post, but I'm afraid to touch it in case I unleash a thunderbolt on someone!

Martin, you'll have to post the 007 pic so that everyone can see it, now your ID shot has changed in all your posts! Otherwise folk'll think we're daft... god forbid!

Craig Daniel, Daniel Craig... whatever, we knew what you meant. Good luck with book launch at Snowdrippy Gala time... it'll be that time before we know it.

Mark: that could be a very hurtful suggestion. Why not just buy the book, you'll like it.

No Maggi - He is fine chez Borrill.  It was his idea to draw a face on the paper bag .... and we have often wondered if Amy was delivered by aliens!

Okeydokey Maggi. I prefer the earlier pic anyway.

Oops! I just tried out the 'smite' button on Mark and gave him minus 2 for Karma. Tried to change it back but the system says I can't change it for an hour! Sorry Mark. My fault if you end up as a dung beetle in your next incarnation!

Tony: Mark has begun a "proper" flowering now page: see  http://www.srgc.org.uk/smf/index.php?topic=9.0

I hope everyone will excuse the  "even chattier than usual"  nature of the Forum as we all get to know each other in this new arena!
Happy Days!

Mark, why would we need a mug shot page when we can have our mug shot with each post?

Mugshots, warts and all? Yikes, aren't some of us scary enough in a thumbnail!!
Me, posting super hero, eh? Actually, I prefer the term, housewife superstar, like Dame Edna Everage !
Others may see me differently, I suppose.....

Maggi, for my profile I've reverted to the mugshot of me in the latext ugly-mask that I have to wear to avoid being mobbed in the street because of my uncanny resemblance to the new James Bond (only more handsome).

Just for the record, here's what I really look like without the ugly-mask.
