Sorry. I know, too confusing for anyone who joined in the last year.
There was a thread entitled Brain Fog started by a character who usually called himself Albrecht Durer (he rather admired the artist). He sometimes called himself other things, AnthonyA, John Prideaux, Rubber Fingers and just occasionally Anonymous (stupid man not only forgot his Albrecht Durer password, but no longer had access to the email address with which he’d registered!)
The thread lasted for about 4 years, there were thousands of posts (15,000+?) and many, many contributors. It was fun. I know people have recently been complaining that this forum is no fun anymore. The loss of the Fog is a huge part of that for some of us.
Anthony and I began communicating via PM and email sometime after the thread began and continued communicating almost daily for a few years. The most amazing friend I’ve ever had.
Then Albrecht Durer, aka Anthony (et al), developed acute myeloid leukaemia. He died sometime soon after 9th December last year after he was moved to a hospice (when the b@stard nursing staff wouldn’t let me speak to him).
The Brain Fog thread died with Anthony. Mick has turned into a bit wuss who actually admits missing Anthony now. There were times when there were only the three of us being very silly on the BF. There’s a big part of me that misses the childish behaviour and idiocy we spent too much time on.
Oh, and with regard to Rhino dung, I believe it’s excellent for roses. But the only seller of said dung (to my knowledge) was Durer Enterprises of East Cheam. When I say seller, actually he’d try and flog some other cr@p and throw a few tons of rhino dung in for free.
You could search for the Brain Fog thread for a look at how ridiculous it was if you could be bothered. It’s probably incomprehensible now though because much of the nonsense won’t make sense out of sequence and using the current Forum platform. Plus, there was a lot of user image changes that really won’t make sense. An awful lot was said about ADs socks based on his personal images! I think there were days when his socks were changed on the Forum more frequently than in ‘real life’ (if there is such a thing, which I doubt!)
