WT.... that would imply, from my readings of posts, that one Julian Mayo had been recently in the environment "local".....yes?
I have a suspicion as to why one JM is "MIA".

Some 3 months ago, with my surrupticiously obtained, but valid, press pass, I yet again had the pleasure of casting my old eyes upon a creature designed to bring a man to the brink of madness. I have not seen such a thing since I first cast my eyes upon my first Hispano Suiz.
Bernice is nowhere to be seen!!!!!!!

I believe that would be the Spanish Dancer.........no wonder Julian's been absent for this long........... :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

Speaking of which.......welcome to the VIP Tower, Conduit; care for the grand tour? :lol: :lol: :lol:

Anyway, the tower's six floors of luxury for the News On F1 members here and it is going to be a fabulous place.......the first floor is essentially the lobby; those spaces you see along the walls are where portraits of some of the greats in open-wheel racing, past and present, are going to be placed(any suggestions should be forwarded to the concierge..... :lol: :lol: :lol: ). The second floor's going to have shops of all kinds(which reminds me....I need a haircut and a shave..... :shock: :shock: :lol: ). Third floor IIRC is going to have various restaurants and lounges(which would explain all the grilling smoke coming from that level.......... :chef: :shock: :shock: )

Then there's the fourth floor; more lounges, along with lots of wi-fi routers for Internet access(so we can keep up with the sport we all love, yes? ) along with a library of sorts(where's all those sci-fi books I've got on request here...... :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :lol: :lol: :lol: ) and the fifth floor has all the luxury suites and penthouses(named for various drivers, past and present.....let's see, there's the Patrick Suite, the Bourdais Suite, the Iceman Suite, etc..... :lol: :lol: 8) ). As to the sixth floor........that's for helicopter access IIRC; with the floor plans in place, there's the possibility of expanding and adding additional suites/penthouses to the sixth floor as well.

Now if we can only decide when to open the VIP Tower........ :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

Evening, barkeep.......one iced tea, in the Harrington glass. :drink:

Man, I tell ya', I didn't think you could fit a couple of hundred people into the tower's restaurants for the grand opening; correction, grand re-opening.....this tower's definitely open for business!! :cheers: :cheers:

Anyway; has anyone seen any of the other regulars? :shock: :shock: Oh well; they're probably circulating around.......anyhow, drinks for the weekend are on me! :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :drink: :drink:
