Fascinating stuff as usual

Great to be one of the first to voice an opinion here. I loved it - I could listen to stories like that all day, I just hope there's lots more where that came from. Thing is, I know there is, cos I know Mr Chit Chat and I used to listen to him all day - well for 3 hours at band practice! And he sure can entertain! So keep doing what you're doing. looking forward to the next one.
