Happy birthday, young Padawan

However you intend to celebrate your birthday, dear student, may it be a wonderful day. I remember 42 (1985) - one of my happiest years: I managed to buy a lovely basement flat in West Hampstead, I was in an undemanding job that paid well, my health was good and - to crown it all - I met and fell in love with Chris!

Many, many happy returns.

    Thank you Simon! :) Strangely enough, like yourself at that time, I am also looking to buy a family home. I'm looking for somewhere a little more accommodating for my wife and extended family of cats, in a nice, quiet location that's more conducive to meditation. I'm hoping that I will be able to find a compromise between the eightfold path, and the slightly cold-blooded mindset I'll need to deal with the estate agents and solicitors! :lol: I'm seriously very flattered that I've been accepted here after such a short period of time- I'm very grateful for that. :)

    Padawan.... You can never compromise when following the Eightold Path... You either "follow" it or you don't...
    But perhaps waht you mean (and I can relate absolutely, totally completely) is that you need to find a way to act in such a way that will indicate to the Estate Agent and Solicitors that you're no patsy, walk-over or complacent, ingratiating doormat, and that you therefore find, hold and secure the best possible result for you & yours - whilst still adhereing and being True to that which is your Guide and Help....

    I'm currently up tp my neck in a legal wrangle.... so I'm with you on this one. It's not easy. :)

    All the very best, and good luck.... ;)

    Oh and of course, I'm so sorry.... A very Happy (belated, but still earnestly-meant) Birthday.....

    I've noticed NB logging me out sometimes - but not at others. Don't know why that is.

    I just use it for a lesson - things are sometimes what they seem - and at other times... not.

    Just think of being "logged in" as another sign of impermanence...
