    A better start in life than a silver spoon in my eyes (but then again my youngest son was born at Airedale too!) :D

    Congrats to both yourself and Carol - and of course the proud parents.

    Yes, please do! Don't know about everybody else but I am tired of all the doom and gloom we read in the papers every day at the moment. There has GOT to be more good stuff than bad stuff - or what is the point of it all? :)

    I went to the hospital last week and got the all clear on my hip injury.

    They were frightened of the hip dying off due to the injury I sustained 2 years ago.

    I was worried that I may have to have another operation/hip replacement and be off for a few months.

    So good news for me and my customers!
