Hay, Brian, Have you been back to England since you left all them years ago,and did you visit your old friends and pop down to the pub,. I went back to England for a holiday with the wife and kids, just to show them a world they did not know and you know, I met the same people in the same pub and complaning about their same bloody problems. as you know after a a beer or ten, they got talking about old times, and then it came the point when they start talking, " you know John, I could have left home you know gone abroad to a new country, but the family wanted me to stay and look after them", In some cases, it was true,but in most, they did not have the guts to find out what was on the other side of the hill. ( but you and I did, and now we know) Take care... and keep your pecker up John 2000....PS: only the English know what a pecker is..??
