    Rod thanks for keeping me on the mailing list even though I don’t ever seem to get to the lunches. I thought that this year might be different but unfortunately I have a meeting on that day which I cant get out of.
    I do read with interest about this bits and pieces that are sent through. It was a remarkable time and something that people who didn’t ever work at the gov would even contemplate and even though I didn’t stay as long as most of the people it really was good times and shaped my life.

    All the best and keep healthy
