Please let me once more take advantage of my pedestal to offer a few words of congratulations to a few friends of old.
First up, to Tara, who with James' help has just given birth to a bouncing bundle of joy named Ruby. Nice work, Tazster.
Secondly, another birth-big-up goes to former Viper Squad Ten bandleader Commander Aardvark aka Mike aka Pike, who, although not actually becoming a father during travels has perhaps more-easily become a doting (if you can dote from the other side of the world) uncle.
And finally, no births yet but its still early days, as I belatedly electronically wish Trish and Tim a very happy engagement.
All these people (minus James & Tim) can be seen in the cult horror musical Hormone Hell. Order your copy today.
