Re: [IPk] My Update



Hi Stuart and Regards to Mum

Sorry to be so late in writing.  I enjoyed meeting you again at the Chopper 
and thought it a very good evening.  I am so pleased you have been given the 
chance to try out the Guardian RT and am envious.  Has it given you any more 
surprises and have you been able to get better control?

June
