Hi guys.

Here are the leading contenders for the new tag line, let's vote on it and see what we end up with!

Thanks for all your suggestions (chose to exercise my vote not to go with 'You're either weird or lonely', not a surprise I'm guessing!)

Cheers

Matt

Wow, three of the tag lines are from the song "Northern Sky"!! Not so suprising.
However it's spelled, I find "Brighten my Northern Sky" is the most inspiring!!! Wink

I also voted for "Bryten My Northern Sky" Smile

I wouldn't like "And Now We Rise & We Are Everywhere" so much as a tag line as that one should be left for his headstone.

The inscription can be found on the back of Nick's headstone:

Joe-

Since no one has mentioned it to you yet, the spelling of Bryter Layter was sort of a play on words (or spelling if you will) that Nick used as he listened to the news and weather reporters' pronunciations-presumably clipped British accents as the forecasters spoke of the weather being "BrYter LaYter."

Nick went to Cambridge and his elocution, spelling (correct) and manner of expression reflected that.

This mention of the newscasters' pronunciations is found somewhere in the pages of Patrick Humphries' biography. So, hopefully that explains why he didn't use Y's all over the place, and why it wouldn't really be reflective of Nick to change all the spellings.

Cheers Cool Syl

I know!
Broadcasters would say something to the effect of "cloudy now, but brighter later" right
Good to see Nick was being optimistic at this stage of his life!

OK Joe mi amigo...so you already knew!
Today here in ungodly hot Florida, I was hoping for big clouds in my southern sky....no relief in sight-Pink Moon, but relentless sun! Evil or Very Mad
