Default Very proud father!

Well today I spent the day in Leicester at my sons Graduation. He has also just secured a job with a software company near Winchester. I don't suppose I need to tell you how proud I am of him gaining a first in the Bachelors degree class. Here is the star of my eye.

Congrats to you both! That is a terrific accomplishment!

I have found that hand tools are the best choice when I want to make mistakes at a slower rate of speed.

I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.

Good job Alan.... both you and him.


Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on
