    Congratulations to probably my favourite hubber, Shadesbreath.
    Shades has been here 6 months, over 300 fans, has 45 hubs.

    I've just noticed that he is sitting on a hub score of 100.

    Excellent work - I remember when you just started here, and published your first couple of hubs.

    I thought then that you were a special kind of nutter - a fact which has been also recognised by your legions of subsequent fans.

    In fact, I think you're almost ready to write for Readers Digest, and I can think of no higher compliment to offer lol

    Looking forward to more of your humour, wit, biting satire, fun, and general unpredictability.

    Cheers Mate.

    Well earned congratulations!

    Yeah, but is Reader's Digest ready for Shadesbreath?  I don't think they can deal with that much improvement!

    It's down to "just" 96 now, but with such raving reviews, I'm going over to your profile to check out those hubs!

    ETA -
    Oops, was looking at Eric's profile, since he started the thread... Shadesbreath is still at a round 100!

    For those who are as clueless as I am, here's a link to the right profile page:

    hey, Shades. Great going, man. I've been seeing you quite a bit on the opening page too. Sweet.

    OK, move along now.  nothing to see here any more.
    Shadecloth's hub score is back down to 98. He probably made a spelling misteak or grammaticul error somewhere, and was slapped by Maddie..

    @AEvans: Thanks for the nice words. If I spent as much time here as Shades, I reckon my hub score would be 200 by now lol

    @Benson: Banjo is going well, when I remember to play it. I can do a pretty reasonable version of that backwoods nursery rhyme, Duelling Banjos.

    @Marian. You're probably right. Especially the Excrement Inc. Hub.

    @ajcor: I don't think they're ready for Slim Dusty quite yet!
    But here's a clip of him singing "I'd love to have a beer with Duncan".
    It's a bloody funny compilation.

        Shades I echo the congratulations of all the other guys. I lifts my mug! cheers.
        Please go and have a beer with Duncan as Eric and ej have suggested. cool

        I couldn't find any mistakes anywhere. I guess Shades just made a bathroom trip and got penalized. I now solve this minor problem by hubbing on my toilet seat. But my score still drops every now and then when I have to excuse Mrs Yeung for using my seat.

          Benson what you might call the hot seat?

          Did you check all of his 40 odd hubs, 63,435 associated comments, and 2,742,965 forum posts? lol

    Well, this was a nice ego boost to come find.  Thanks for the nice words you guys.  And Eric, you were really cool when I first got here and was writing just for fun.  You pointed people to my early hubs and really gave me a jump start out of the gate.  So, you get a lot of credit for helping me out.  Cheers, bro.
