I'm not here as much as I used to be Mark, but I've just read this story about your good friend and I'm proud of him. To have the ability and mind set to push yourself outside the 'box' and start living a different life takes guts, I wish him and his family the best for the future. I was 50 years old when I decided to leave everything behind in the UK and head down under to a new life here in Australia....so glad I did.
Brian, is yours the boxed one that Terry (Sanders) had many many moons ago? I remember at the time it was expensive but having said that, I'd never seen it before and haven't seen one 'in the flesh' ever since! A fabulous item and to have the MGM logo!!
