28th August Sun and a some good news

Recommended Posts

My 50th year on planet earth is today and as I sit here observing the sun I am thinking what a wonderful way to start the day  :laugh:

I was going to give a brief description of what was on view. However, it would be a lot easier for you to simply have a look at Qualia's sketch from 27-08-2015 as that is exactly how it looks :grin: with a touch of Van Gough

The best present I could have possibly received has just happened and it was finding out my brothers (and my best friend) long fight with cancer has ended in victory for him as he has just this minute called me to say he has been given the all clear. I know a couple of folk on SGL have had not so good news over the past couple of years and should you happen to read this I hope you don't mind me mentioning this sensitive and emotional subject.

Congrats on the birthday, and on your brother's victory over cancer. May both of you long bask in the rays of our nearest star.

BTW, why should you not share the news of the victory with us? It gives hope that the disease can be beaten

Good stuff, Shaun. Happy birthday to you and power to your brother. Glad the day is bright both literally and figuratively.

You have been in my mind a couple of times in the past few days (ref. the ABS thread), since you are one of the good folks from whom I've bought astro gear in a faultless transaction. We spoke and corresponded regarding the sale and I feel I connected with a kindred soul because of that small trade.

May the flow of life treat you and yours kindly.

Stay bright and do right ... or, less formally, rock on!

Sounds like you had a good birthday, Shaun and I'm so glad to hear about your brother. That really is tip-top news and worth carrying on the celebrations for a little while longer :grin:

In a peculiar way, I have a little bit of you all the way over here. I mean I have all those good vibes and care you've given the Lunt I use, so I've raised a glass to you in person and sent you and your family the best wishes I can. May the force be with you and your bro, Shaun and Happy Birthday :smiley:
