    Hi all,

    As some of you know, it was my birthday a couple of weeks ago and I spent the day on a boat in the Med. Thanks for all the well-wishing and all those who decided not to argue with me that week smile

    While we were out, I got to take a look at the new Mega-Yacht "A". Wow! She is gorgeous.

    I finally got around to doing something with the photos:

    I will be doing some more on my personal blog, but if you want to see more of her, you will have to visit my work blog. Mega Yacht "A"

    I have to say, I was blown away by this boat. I have no clue how much it cost, but
    A lot!

    Mark and I recently had a discussion about his birthday.

    He said: "You know what I need for my birthday?"  To which I replied: "Let me get you a money order, then you can buy a life all on your own."

    Buahahahaha

      Er ... Anyone looking for a good soul? I've got one, it's for sale. Since I cant do any blatant selling here, all I can reveal to you is it's value only. Well, for the price of two return tickets to heaven, you can have my soul. Remember this is an OTO (one time offer) You wont see this page again! smile
