    Heres my little hero, takes a minute or two to download but worth it just to put a smile on your face. Sorry not box related at all..........If only I knew how to burn it to disk so she could show it off at school?

    I have something great to reveal!

    The "old sargeant-major", he must be loved by someone or something...........?

    John,
    if you really want to start any woodwork see if there is a woodworking club in your area and go talk to them. You'll find them most helpful and they'll let you use their equipment once you told them what you want to do.
    Just remember John, the hardest job is being a parent and at the same time could be the most rewarding. Never be afraid in giving it a go, I think that's what the old sareant-major wanted to say but came out from the wrong side.
    Make time for your family, quality time, no matter what because once time passes you'll never make it up if you know what I mean.
    So "give it a go" with no regrets and then you could say that at least you tried and with no "ifs or buts".

    Good Luck
    Jack

    Now you have me wondering But I think the gist of it was have you payed your broadcasting fee yet, and that supposedly you can trust the content etc that is broadcast from them.......I dunno really, but what got me all excited was that this was sent to me with my daughters picture in it as the hero......so thats what really bought a smile to my face.

    Hi Jack,

    Yes in theory I agreed with some of what he had to say, but he got it all balls-ed up in how he put it across that is for sure.

    I may have to search out and see if there are any ww clubs around the area, to be honest I don't think I really thought of that, so yeah thanks for that.

    You hit the nail on the head there about parenting being the most difficult one of all, they can make you laugh and cry all at the same time that's for sure, but as you say it can be oh so rewarding. I certainly hear you on the quality family time.

    Anyway Jack, and to everyone else who has contacted me in the last week or so, thanks for your words of encouragement and understanding.

    Cheers
    John

    Jim that was the thing, you could create your own and insert whatever picture you wanted. Have a look at the end of the commercial where it asks you to view it again or create your own.

    Cheers
