Good to see you Russ and to hear you sing again. You were definitely up (and away!) before your breakfast.

:lol: Poor David was really concious about that tooth! He bashed it with his microphone and loosened it and then woke up in the middle of the night (I'm relying on his account now - regardless of what you may have heard we're not that close...) with a gob full of blood and a headache! I offered to carve one from polystyrene but he's on a dentist's waiting list and the dentist is waiting for me to carve one from polystyrene...
