Just wanted to say good luck Clive. It's never easy but, if you're determined, there's no reason why you shouldn't succeed.

Wishing you good luck too.
My physical health is something I know I need to work on, but when i'm ready I will. Plus, this time of year there are too many temptations!
I do hope you get on well though. :)

A tour would be good,but one step at a time a tour is a long,long way away.

Go, Clive, go! I think you have amazing chutzpah to go after good Heath. It's not easy but you can do it and inspire the rest of us as you go. I used to be a dancer, the real kind plus I would run and lift weights. I became ill with lupus and the exhaustion ended my fitness routine. I am now determined to regain my fitness. Thank you for inspiring me!
