    Anyway I don't think I was badly treated and hope those who may been on the receiving end can find it in them to forgive. Come to NEBO and I'll buy you a beer by way of apology.

    As I write I'm having some much needed time out from work and preparing for a little jaunt away with the love of my life. The sun shines on us, the birds are singing and whilst all the challenges are still there, I feel more up to taking them on the chin.
    Joking aside Rich, have a great time away with Ruth, and well said mate.

    There are times when you can’t do the sensible thing, when you can’t act like a responsible adult at all; you just have to do whatever insane thing comes into your head. When bad people do it they end up murderers, when good people do it they end up heroes, and when the rest of us do it we end up looking like total idiots. But when’s that ever stopped us?

    Have a nice time Rich,
    I have no idea who you might have upset, but it looks like its all forgiven now, we all let things get us down from time to time, we are human after all, so, onwards and upwards.
