    Good luck with the tour guys, hope all goes well and successful for you.

    Look after our Roy and Linda for us while you're over there, we've only just cultured them in to drinking pints of decent beer since they moved up here, we don't want them corrupting back in to any shandy drinking southern habits! ;)

    Hee Hee Hee,

    we certainly managed to look after Roy and Linda on the tour. I think they both had a good time. I'm sure they both learnt a thing or two as well!!! I wish I could divulge more information but hey, "what goes on tour, stays on tour!" (mostly!!!!!)
