Greyhound, the only depressing about the Cure is that Robert Smith only knows how to sing one song... I prefer Bauhaus, where depression goes over into pure desperation.

Greyhound, I hope you don't take my thoughts about the Cure the wrong way. I know very well what Cure-fans are like, that is why it is so fun to go on about Bauhaus instead... Though perhaps you are not as fanatic about the Cure as most of my friends are.
Greetings from a rainy, cold, windy, typical Swedish summer weather Stockholm

I think the word(s) we use here would be "severence pay," as in cut off, done, finished. And that's only if you're LUCKY enough to know in advance. Otherwise, they just show you the door.
Speaking of "severence pay," that's what I'll be holding if I don't get off this computer...I'm supposed to be working. This is work, isn't it???
It's wet and rainy here, too...but humid...very bad hair day, indeed. Frizzy, frizzy, frizzy....
Have a good one!

Greyhound, I do hope I have answered all your questions! If not, please remind me. So much has been going on and at times I am not sure if I am Martha or Arthur! (Martha, this is an English expression)!
To the new members, a big WELCOME. We always enjoy new blood, but that doesn't turn us into Draculas. Aaha, maybe a story coming there!
Regarding one solid per year, I think I would opt for at least one of the Harrods Limited solids and try, (very hard) for say a Strongwater..... Matter of choice. The bears are good to collect. But once you have one, you will be trying to find others.....I unfortunately haven't Rodney but that was in my early days when I gave him up! Now I make sure to buy more than one (the second to keep for a rainy day.......AND we have been having alot of those lately in this part of the world)!
Karin, I think the word you are looking for is Redundancy Pay.
It seems that Martha hit a cord with her posting and I am really so pleased to read the response. And Lisa, thank you once again for all your hard work (and Jack) and allowing us to express ourselves especially over the past couple of weeks.
It is so good to see 'our friends' and Greyhound, never feel intimidated to remind someone or put your point of view. Bark whenever!
Denise, where are you?

Lisa-- In reference to voting, if we can get EL to start answering the questions we have and can post some results maybe people will feel more inclined to vote on a issue.
For years we have been banging on the EL door with our questions and they were never addressed so we kind of gave up.
Now it seems they are trying to interact with us so the more they do the more collectors might get back in the swing of things .
The frustration level has been very high in the last couple of years with Ebay & confusion at the stores etc.. but here is a chance to make something happen.
No matter what-- I enjoy my solids ( just changed most of my displays ) so I will continue collecting and hope all my complaining about EL is taken as I mean it-- to make things easier for the collectors and help the hobby grow.
And the disscussion here is very important no matter how many solids you have or how long you have collected.
I really, really like the idea of getting a solid just because it means something special to you. So even if you only have one solid it is much more important than having a cabinet full that mean nothing.

Thanks for the encouragement and warm greetings.
Darwin is at the very top of Australia. It gets very hot and very very humid in our "wet" season so called because it rains and rains. We have lots of thunderstorms and nature displays some beautiful lightening shows. This time of the year we are also prone to cyclones.
At present we are in our "dry" season and we see very little rain if any. Temperatures are just devine no aircoolers needed, but we can still wear T-shits, shorts and thongs (we wear them on our feet)
This is the time all the tourists from the southern parts of Australia visit to escape their chilly winters!!!!
My first solid was the Fabulous Frog, my husband saw it when he was buying me some perfume for Xmas,knowing I adore frogs he bought it for me .
Then nearly every year there after he surprised me with a solid. So I didn't really chose any, he did and had great taste.
My favourite solid from, the ones I have, would be the Jack in the Box.

Would love to live near Sandra but are poles apart.
I always enjoy reading her posts and I am pleased to see her posting again.
From one Aussie to another.

That is why we have another area for "off topic" subjects.
General Lauder solids talk area is specifically just solid talk.
So if you could only have one solid from last year which one would it be??
