    Mission accomplished - me & SWMBO met Matt & Graeme on the underground on the way into Hendon, they were in the carriage ahead of us as we got out at Colindale, managed to sneak up behind him and whisper O - H in his ear... (I-O being the standard response for his part of the world).
    We then sauntered along to the museum where we met Chris & Steve. We had a great time wandering around the museum, marvelling at the machines on display & chatting together about all and sundry. Jacqui was dead impressed that Matt & Graeme had brought along cake for her birthday !
    It was great to meet Chris at last & see Steve again, and tease Neil over the phone, the missus took some pics & I know Chris & Steve did so I'm sure we'll get some posted soon.
    The boys looked in fine fettle though I'm sure they were struggling with a little jet lag and we left them in mid afternoon to prepare for the London Philharmonic show tonight & their onward travels tomorrow. It was great to see them both again.

    Good to you all having a good time, and I will explain later why I am so miffed at not being there thanks to Virgin Net.

    Some of us had to work, shame. Thanks for the 'friendly' Geordie mick taking banter over the phone....Steve! Thanks for the 2 pics Chris. Sorry I didnt get to see you all and I hope you have a great stay.

    I also heard a rumour that Flash may make Doncaster if certain 'conditions' are in place? ()

    Simply that my phone has been down for four days, and had it been working, I would have got the message from my Solicitors office postponing our meeting until Monday. That would have given me plenty of time to blag a lift down to Hendon with Chris.

    Fond memories of Nottingham. None with a virgin in them, so I agree with you.
