What is it you're asking for? People that we wish we'd been born in time to meet, family members that have somehow contributed to something, or something else? Or am I just being thick...?!!

It would appear that i'm the one that has been think in that I spent so long working on getting the image to display correctly that I forgot to type in what I thought the Idea of the thread should be!

In essence my thinking is post a picture of a person that you would have liked to meet, or that you are proud to say is a relative.

In my case this picture is of my Grandfather William H Lane, A.K.A Billy Lane, he was captain of UK International Fishing Team winning the world cup at the hight of his career, In this picture you see him with the bulk of his trophys.

I'm an avid fisherman myself, I take great pleasure in reading his books and occasionally sheing his rare TV apperances

Sorry for any confusion, Just though that it would be interesting the find out what passions drive my fellow a.netters

Hope this clears everything up

My grandfather. He died when I was very young.

I wish he was still around.

Also, I've been searching for that Piper Colt for years. I learned that it was sold in the early '80s, but have been unable to track it down. Unfortunately, I think it must have been scrapped.

OK, fair enough. I'll go with the latter then and say that the lady pictured below is someone that I am VERY proud to say was a relative. This is my Aunt Ciss (her real name was Violet, but being the only daughter out of four children, she was known by family as Ciss, as that's what her three brothers called her!). Unfortunately we lost her in July 2006, but she is someone that I model myself on. She was the life and soul of the party, and had more friends than I could ever hope to have. She was always there for everyone and was especially good at cheering people up when they were down. The world is a dull place without her, and not a day goes by when I don't think about her and wish that she were still with us...

Ewan MacColl - my grandfather who sadly died the year before i was born. A talented song writer who left behind hundreds of classics and several recognisable songs worldwide. The inspiration he had on his children (my parents and uncles/aunts) has shaped their careers following on doing the things he loved to do.

Hi Alex

I guess that means the fabulous Kirsty MacColl was your aunt - one of the most amazing singer/songwriters ever , such a clever lyricist , so she obviously followed in your grandfathers footsteps - a real tragedy that she was lost to the world ( and obviously to your family ) so young

I have been looking on the forum to see if fthere is a self-picture thread for this month, December 08. I cannot seem to find one.

Now about this thread. This is Dr. Albert Schweitzer.



I remember him playing an organ recital at Notre Dame cathedral in Paris in the early 60s. He was a scholar of the organ works of J.S. Bach. I will always remember this uncommon performance by this truly great man.

More about his life and work here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albert_Schweitzer

Albert Schweitzer (14 January, 1875 – 4 September, 1965) was an Alsatian theologian, musician, philosopher, and physician. He was born in Kaysersberg in Alsace-Lorraine, a bilingual Romano-Germanic region which France regained from Germany after World War I. Schweitzer challenged both the secular view of historical Jesus current at his time and the traditional Christian view, depicting a Jesus who expected the imminent end of the world. He received the 1952 Nobel Peace Prize in 1953 for his philosophy of "Reverence for Life",[1] expressed in many ways, but most famously in founding and sustaining the Albert Schweitzer Hospital in Lambaréné, now in Gabon, west central Africa (then French Equatorial Africa). As a music scholar and organist, he studied the music of J. S. Bach and influenced the Organ reform movement (Orgelbewegung).

While my choice of who I'd like to meet is sure to bring some controversy, I'd love to sit down and chat over a few beers and cigars with Ernesto Che Guevara and Fidel Castro. Both are larger than life historical figures and I've also visited Cuba many times. Not that I support what they did or have done, but because it's such a fascinating period of history.

Once saw her in a concert with the Pogues, one of my all-time favourite bands.

Have tremendous respect for this gentlemen,although a protestant pastor..
( As an agnostic I'm extremely weary about anything religious..)
But his whole life has been determined by humaniatarian philosophical principles far beyond any religion.He furthermore considered animals and humans quite equal in terms of respect they deserve.He run for more than 30 years a Jungle-hospital in Gabon -Lambarene,concentrating on helping leprosy victims.
He furthermore was a gifted organ player and his concerts playing Bach have been famous.
