He's in the choir at my church and he also does readings occassionally, he's brilliant at the readings! |Everytime a kid gets christened at our church he's gives them a gift of a framed poem and an angel statue - great man, although if you happen to bump into him on your lunch break, be warned you'll be late getting back to work lolSmile

Wow that's brilliant. Wonder if that's a world record for a plus 90? Bet it's close.
