    Ron, Thanks the kids enjoyed the talk. It should have been a quick half an hour talk, instead it lasted for two and a half hours. Got the kids talking about what their relatives did in the war, one kid told me that his grandad lost an arm in a burning tank. Oh, toothache nearly gone

    Regards, To all, Simon.
