Springy,

If you're staying at iSandlwana Lodge, please tell Rob I'm waiting for the call to do my repeat performance at Rorke's Drift!

Lucky devil, I guess it makes up for the rugby the other day.

Hello springy mate.

You lucky so and so. Very Happy 

You just take care of the ticker and don't try to overdo things buddy.

I hope that you get some good piccies mate.

Oh! and by the way, you know that I am English, but that I also have Welsh connections, so I should have replied to your remark about me being Welsh with a little bit of the old G&S in as follows.

"But in spite of all temptations, to belong to other nations, I remain an Englishman". Very Happy 

Enjoy yourself Frank, and take care.

Martin. Salute
