    Happy Birthday, G!


    May your life be joyful & fragrant forever!!

    Very early goodmorning, dear C!!

    Happy Birthday BrothaG

    Dear friend and partner in innocent mischief. Inspired starter of the "Guess the Fragrance by the Picture" thread. Every inch a gentleman and a poetic soul as well.
    And one dull Sunday afternoon on this thread he suddenly got the nickname "Hannibal". Fearless leader of the A-Team. Very camp but somehow it became a running gag.

    My dear Guus, Hannibal, I hope you will have a wonderful birthday and may your dreams come true.

    The A-Team is gathered here today to celebrate. Leather gloves and cigars are available at the Basenotes entrance.

    ::and please, don't trip over Murdock's invisible dog::

    For this special day: Chergui

    *************************************************

    Now, how drowsy can you be?
    We have another birthdayboy as well today!!!

    Happy Birthday, Shifts

    Oh my... so touched by your kind words, dear friends! Thank you for your lovely poem, LIB , and thank you for your immensely kind words, R . You ladies and all other Basenoters are the best friends I could wish for.

    I'll be joining you in a fragrance that is very special to me today, and even more so now, the forever wonderful Chergui

    And all these Hannibal avatars.. adding another piece of glory to this day! I'll be back later when the cocktails are served. A vodka & tonic please.

    Signed,
    Hannibal/G.

    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    "The beginning of freedom is the realization that you are not the "thinker." The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated. You then begin to realize that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought, that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence. You also realize that all the things that truly matter - beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace - arise from beyond the mind.

    You begin to awaken"
