    Hey I am really enjoying being chairman, right back in the centre of the lifeboat, it might make me share more now from the floor, i find its easy to slip into that quiet mode.
    Inspiring list, reading through it makes u feel good

    Thank you for the post.

    Did you take the pics?

Let me know what you think. I like reading what you have to say.
