    welcome aboard the nuthouse, great set of guys . you may know a mate of mine in OZ his name is bob waddell, he was in aden in the sixties, I am of course one of the more sensible members, most of the others are barmy so do not believe all you hear about me cos ther are a load of TOM PEPPERS on site, anyway look forward to your post.

    Hi Keith good to see one of the old Independents on here, those were the days when men were men and sheep were worried.
    I told myself that I should stop drinking, but I'm not about to listen to a drunk who talks to himself.
