    Thanks guys great to be here. Frankie, my ageing leathery face is more than enough to scare the little kids. Fretty, yes I sweated over it for months but decided to just go for it. Nothing ventured and all that .

    Looks a bit shit right now, but hopefully it will look better with the red dye applied . If not, well I tried.

    cheers,
    Gav.
