    Now there's a nasty thought.. Good point.

    I can't remember, will this be your first?

    Ben...that is just amazing. I can very much relate to this poem. Ya know sir...with Longbow_06 being the artist, you being the poet, me being...well, versed in certain traditional Japanese martial arts, all we need is a tea ceremony member and we *could* unite to become one heckuva Samurai!;)

    Thank you Ben.

    By stitching, do you mean combining several photos like what the gigapan does? I keep wondering, to maintain the same perspective when rotating the camera, what point do they rotate about? Probably not the focal plane, somewhere in the lens. I wonder if it has a name.

    I have lots of tea, but I don't know about the proper ceremony. Let me get my copy of The Art of Tea.

    Mail call!

    You're going to have to wait for pics till I get back from the doctor. 4 months of bronchitis, going from antibiotic to antibiotic and nothing helping. Perhaps it's because unlike Cheeser I forgot about the 'no alchohol' thing when taking anti biotics... :D

    I'm not saying there is anything wrong with that, I just want to experience another places culture.

    Europe and Asia have so many interesting traditions a such a cool history, and also sometimes its fun to try something new

    Agreed, similar to pipe smoking, tea has many rituals around its preparation that make you slow down and live more contemplatively, instead of just busting out a bag of bigelow and chucking it in boiling water and calling it good.

    Don't drink either tea or coffee so I'll keep on smoking my pipe, without ritual. :)

    Yes. You read right. I don't drink coffee. At all. Zip. Nada.

    Got a feeling that there will have been some intakes of breath around the forum on that one. :D

    The art of tea... Boiling water will scald the tea leaves. Never, use boiling water.
    Add milk, add sugar to taste... There. Tea is made ;)

    Longbow_06 A recent pic of me up in Scotland. Looking not 70. Well actually everything about the picture equals 70 but for the face. :D My wonderful supportive wife just said that all that's missing is a few wrinkles. It's great to get support... :rofl:
