Johnny I was right when i said I was more handsome  than  u but, ya are in the right spot. I have been around 'er 7 times and nothing is more silly than religion and you...were you the one who chased the guy tryin ta shag the girl and the bus and got a week off?  I saw it on Yahoo and told the wife, "I know this guy I'm sure." My cousin drives fer TTC as well and since she has the wrong plumbing it wasn't her...unless... Take er easy and you know I am not Tannaberton I have an internet name that's all. I still remember the night you threw the beer on the engineer from Buchans. It's me Tony...the tinker. Go here and see.....http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cu-nZkUB5bc

also you might not be enthused about this but it is better than being euthenised....http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KQXuWHbRHm4 or search recency ride short     on you tube if the other does not work try searching   brandon and bob.

By the way History is a lie either one big one or a million small ones until now. We all get out 15 minutes so how can it fail to tell the truth eventually. Especally WW2
