Our good friend Erik is going to mature, like a good chia pet, before our very eyes in this thread.
With a hair cut and shave, he looks boyish...but give him long locks and a fuzzy face and the dude becomes your father.
In this thread he will provide a weekly photo of himself and also discuss random occurences in his life and, hopefully, a look into his diet.
He hasn't agreed to this, but I know he will do it because he's one of the most dependable board members on the planet.
So, Erik....please feel free to give us your opening comments and a current photo of yourself. I know there are a lot of new people here but, as we've seen in the past, everyone learns to love you (just no discussing Radiohead/Depeche Mode and lunar landings).
