Thank you for these Jarkko - and happy 60th birthday! (no foot note - are you keeping this a secret?)

Great pictures- especially the ones where the moon is captured iluminating the clouds

However surprisingly few reports from ghent - perhaps people are too stunned to cope with the keyboard ???

Hi Maarten,

Hi Jarkko,

WONDERFUL photos (I'm assuming by Eija) plus a special one of the "boys"! :D A beautiful venue and a special time in Ghent for all the fortunate fans! Wish I were there!

Happy Birthday Jarkko, have a wonderful evening.

Your pictures are lovely. I particularly like the moon through the clouds shot, it somehow reminds me of ET, the bright lights and all the people looking up for the spaceship to land!!! Sorry, wine always makes me a bit loco.

Thank you for all your hard work, words seem inadequate, not being Leonard I cannot paint a picture with words. Hope to see you in Hydra in 2011 if it goes ahead to be able to say thanks in person.
