Sorry to hear you've been having health problems. Not been too brilliant meself over the last couple of years, but we keep going, one way or another.
If you fancy a chat, and you've still got my email address, drop me a line as I'd love to hear from you again. If you don't have my email address, please request it from Admin.
Better that than putting ourselves online for folk to comment about, eh? I'd love to chat with you again after all these years.
