vince clarke by Big Ga ( 3rd Place-tie )

Not a particularly brilliant pic, but some of you might be interested (and it fills the gallery up :-)
I could have called it 'merry Christmas'. Its a pic of our dining table set for family to arrive last boxing day. I normally sit at the head of the table and eat my breakfast every morning looking out over that view. And the best thing is as anyone with a mountain view will tel you, no two days look the same. I feel very privileged.

So what's with the title?
Well .... so cryptic that I wouldn't ever expect anyone to get it, so .....
Vince clarke is of course the man behind many synth bands like Depeche Mode, erasure etc. Back in the 80s, there was a sample CD released comprising loads of synthesiser sounds from his very large collection of expensive and rare keyboards. For those of us without, we could but dream and be very green.
Someone with the same sense of humour as myself named the sample CD and to me, the two parts of the name are now synonymous. And the name was:
'Vince Clarke - Lucky Bastard'
