Happy Birthday John! You're not that far behind me in age, and not that much before me with the day! Even at 55, you still feel sort of special on your birthday. Enjoy it and many more to come.

Thank you all for the best wishes and the personal notes. It was very kind of you to take the time to say hello. I treasure the new friendships I've formed here...

Back to London on Saturday if anyone would like to "wet me down" - my treat for the first round.
