Thanks for your kind words, Ken, I printed them off and gave them to Bill
when I saw him the other day, he was really pleased. As you obviously know,
it's important to recognise people for there efforts all of the time -- but
right now it is particularly good medicine for Bill. :-)
Unfortunately at the moment, his eyesight is too poor without using a
magnifying glass, so now he's due for laser surgery on an eye and after
that new glasses (hopefully).
Diabetes is a bastard.
