That made me laugh out loud Michael, I love your humour. The girl looks pretty good too although I think she's got a bad back!

I like this, Michael. That candle wax has produced an interesting effect.

Thanks Carole. You said it and it’s better out than in.

Thanks for your kindness Gudrun.

Great talent you have Michael a cracker in every aspect.
