    From all corners of the planet come a group of folks brought together by their common interest in the Star Wars universe. They gather here in the Tap Café to share their collecting tales and reminisce of days long past. For almost 3 years now the hallowed halls of the Café have entertained many folks. Some have become bar flies, some drop in from time to time , and others lurk. In any event many strong friendships have been formed here and I am sure that many more will be formed in the coming months and years. We hope to get to hear from you lurkers out there. Please come by and talk to us Welcome to the Tap Café V.15.





    May we always find the time,
    to say a little hello.
    To all great folks here,
    that we have grown to know

    In good times and the bad,
    we are here together.
    No matter where we are,
    or how bad the weather.

    For our times in the Cafe
    we will reminisce of those days.
    Of a long time ago
    In a galaxy far far away

    England have beaten Tonga in the rugby by 36 to 20. They're through the group stage! There's still the USA vs South Africa on Sunday night but it won't make a difference to the standings. (I suspect the USA will get mauled in that since South Africa have won the group. England are second.)

    Argh, the cafe has that nice new smell about it :D

    That was a good game of rugby. Poor Lewis Moody got a bashing though, but Paul Sackey had an excellent game and looks one for the future.
    With South Africa safely through, they might rest a lot of players which may give USA a slim chance, but even a weakened South African team is very strong, so best not get too excited, lol.

    I'm off Wave 4 hunting tomorrow. Wish me luck, I need that Boba!

    It was "The Sound of Drums" and I woke up in time to see the last five minutes or so. I already know what happens because I'm a sucker for internet spoilers, but I still want to see it. It's on again at midnight, so here in another 40 minutes I'll try again. And thanks to the nap I'll be up all night.

    We just got an awesome toy. It's the Flight Control TARDIS. It's in scale with the figures and two of them will fit inside. There are all kinds of awesome sound effects and lights. I highly recommend it, and my daughter loves it. Too bad the Doctor Who toys are so hard to find in the US. I've found a pretty good internet source, though--our TARDIS arrived in only 3 days.

    Morning all! We've got 4 rugby matches today starting at noon on TV. That's my TV schedule then!

    RW - you can try [link=http://www.theentertainer.com/pws/Home.ice]The Entertainer[/link] for Dr Who stuff as well. They are UK-based but do ship to the US. I know someone else on here who is in the US ordered Dr Who stuff and got it really fast. I know my local store usually has a bunch of Dr Who items when I check for SW stuff.

    Good morning everyone :) How are you doing Les.

    I got some decent sleep last night which in come in handy today as I am going to be really busy.



    I replied to a message from DaDarth on the last page of the previous cafe but I do not
    know if he will read it:

    How are you and the family doing Jim. How has your career been going. I remember the last time you were talking about changing from sales back to the healthcare side of the industry.

    I hope your system work goes OK, Mike..

    Australia play Canada in the rugby in a few minutes. New Zealand already blew Romania off 85-8.

    That's a good episode, I really enjoyed the last two episodes of that season :)

    I don't actually have any Who stuff, yet.....I do say yet lol
    When I was in Toronto for the Harry Potter convention I actually found a TARDIS USB hub which was pretty cool. Not sure if I would end up using it or just have it next to my computer though.

    Well, the good news is that the Canada match wasn't as bad a blowout as the New Zealand match. Canada lost by only 37-6. However, it means they exit the group stage without any wins. Wales are playing Fiji now - winner goes through, loser goes home.

    Oh man, I totally missed the end of episode XIV! How's everyone? It's been ages since I've been around. I've been so busy with our attic makeover, but that's nearing completion, thankfully! Looking forward to regularly post here again! Take care and I'll keep in touch! [face_peace]

    Hey Incom!

    Well, Scotland just beat Italy by 18-16 to go through to the quarter finals in the rugby. Wales are out, however - they lost by 38-34 against Fiji. Cracking match though - one of the best so far. Wales gave it their all and have nothing to be ashamed of.

    The finals are going to be interesting Les. I finished the work I had to do. Unfortunately I did not get back as much space as I was hoping for. I guess that I will have to move some files into some other drives in a few weeks.

    Erm, well...

    The last new purchase I made was the Hasbro 12" Imperial Officer. Before that, I got the Luke/Mara, Leia/Vader, and Hett/Dark Woman comic book 2-packs. And before that, the Sideshow 1:6 scale Leia as Boussh.

    I have a bunch of items on order, the EE Exclusive Elite Forces of the Republic set,
    the Battlefront II Action Figure Set, the RAH Darth Maul, MR Boba Fett 1:1 Helmet, and the SS 1:4 scout and speederbike. There are a few other items that I cannot remember at the moment. The Canadian dollar is now equal to the US dollar so I am trying to order as much as I can.
