    Congratulations and very well done SA. I thought you weren't going to tell Mr SA? Difficult to kee such good needs to yourself I guess. But shocking that he's planning how to spend your well earned extra salary.

    It is important that we know where we come from, because if you do not know where you come from, then you do not know where you are, and if you don't know where you are, then you don't know where you are going. If you don't know where you're going, you're probably going wrong.

    Brilliant news on the job SA. Well done and well deserved. Glad Mr SA decided to be happy for you. Bit :mad: that DD forgot to get her dad a card. How hard is it to do that for a close family member.
