Hi Ben,

I was thinking about writing to you and went to look up the address you gave us a while back ... it will be a week or so before I get around to actually writing, so I guess the address you posted will still be good?

Life is v busy at the moment, what with loads of stuff at work plus having to sort out some money to pay the first tranche of the inheritance tax (due after Mum died) at the end of this month.

Are you back in the US now? I seem to remember you saying you were going back sometime, but I'm only skimming my LJ friends list some days.

Peace and be safe
peter

Does your Mum know you are trying to set her up with me? You can pass on a pic if you like - if you see one on my website you like then copy it.b :)
