    I went looking for Rocket Man and I'm so grateful to you for its being here. I saw it when it was on tv here, and was enchanted, and missed the ending! I didn't miss it this time! Lovely piece of work. Thank you.

    I have edited for Jon on 'New Tricks' and 'Sparticles...' - Jon has a very analytical mind and always strives for perfection. I trust his judgement completely. Ian Farr
