Good stuff Don, although I have my suspicions that it's a stock photo and not Don...

suspicions Guy ? you doubt the good-looking guy is me ? i'm mortified.....

LOL The fact that it's an 'American' plane, with American flag on the tail, and it's sunny, I had my doubts it was at an air strip in Hampshire....  nothing to do with dashing flight instructors that don't match their Flickr photos Don !

Just in case anybody else has a copy of today's Daily Express and has read Jennifer Selway's column on Page 13................

I tried to find that website to view the article ... but apparently the Daily Express is inappropriate reading material here  :-)

In seriousness ... nice to get a bit of recognition for your skills and experience Don!

(Fortunately) There weren't any pictures in the printed version. Why they chose  to add library photos on-line I don't know. As you can easily see from my Flickr photos (I think there are only two) , i'm incredibly photogenic  ...................... 

Nice one Rod, well done you. What a dreadful job you have, you must stuggle to get out of bed in the morning.

You appear to have forgotten my previous kind offer to help you with any expensive wine you wish a second opinion on, a sort of "ordinary bloke on the street" assessment. Or cheaper wine...

Yeah I was thinking the same thing about Rod, especially as I sit here about to heave for a job I absolutely despise any more...although I was a bit disappointed to find out he wasn't a German Shepherd.

Don, please share your diet plan - I'd like to be as svelte as you are!

Nice job both of you!

I have a recollection that either Kevin or Jammie was in the press a couple of years ago in connection with a photograph that became part of the CountryFile Calendar (or was it the Calendar Girls).

I can't seem to locate the Express article Don. I don't suppose you have a direct link to it please?

Just copy and paste this onto your browser:

Jennifer Selway - Golly, I’ve just flown a plane

Thanks Tony & Tony. I didn't post a link because I wasn't sure about the Forum Rules.

Hopefully others will post details of their "press cuttings"...............unless it's along the lines of "a man is helping police with their enquiries !"

OK, my turn...and a neat DoJ link too...We're shortlisted here:

Watch 'Grand Designs - House of the Year 2016'... Channel 4 November 16th.

I just hope the editing doesn't make me sound a complete c*ck!

Hah, I wish! Like most of the male population I've always had a thing for Helen Mirren...

Yep, my entry for competition (first thing I'd ever gone in for) made the calendar that year. And I appeared on BBC Radio Cambs no less.

Infamy...

Great article, are you doing autographs Don?   I had a flying lesson once in a motorised glider. The instructor spent ages telling me that snow was fine but rain made it handle a bit dodgy and if if rained he'd take over and bring us back.  Once we got up there it bucketed down!  Was a lovely experience though and flying through clouds was brill.  Must be great to do it for a living.  

Yikes, I'm being stalked by the Forum!

I would like to point out that what may appear to be a ragtag collection of young (!) professionals, retired sheep farmers and the unwaged is in fact a finely honed unit of elite cricketers who this season have set Craven League Division 4b alight with their style, quality, amusing badinage and general all round luck.

Don, nice article. Perhaps I should have started another thread of 'Naim forum members in the press' to avoid distraction from your good works.

So which "amusing young professional" (*) is you ?

(*) I simply selected a random collection of adjectives from your text

I had hoped the thread title "It's Me !" was short and sweet but generic enough to apply to everybody who chose to contribute - "warts-n-all". I'd be more than happy for Richard to change the title, if that's possible - how about "Stars of the Forum" ? or "Page 3" ?

My entry was just a "Starter for Ten"

I seem to recall seeing your house on this forum. Possibly when it was under construction ?

My youngest daughter and my son-in-law are both architects, I'll give them the heads-up for the 16th as well.
