    Good choice John and what a great world it would be if more people were true to themselves, free of fear and control. The strength of speeches at my club spoken from the heart trumps eloquent dribble every time. Keep up the good work.

      Thanks, Chris. Much appreciated. I think that the greatest complement I ever receive is when someone is talking to me after a speech and they say that I am exactly the way I am on stage. I value such comments.

      Cheers!

      John
