    Sorry guys for not being around lately much.
    My last post about panic disorder and things im really just kinda taking it a little easy lately. Just needed a little (not time away), but just a little breather.

    Everyone im sure at some stage will take time of from this business.
    Unfortunately in the last 5-6 years i have not taken a holiday for longer than a weekend break.

    That and the fear of flying, the last time i flew was 9/11.

    So im not posting this thread for sympathy, or nothing of the sort, just to clear up some frustrated people who have been trying to catch me via pm or email.
    I will EVENTUALLY get around to answering your pms at some stage.

    A reminder that you should ALL take breaks at some stage, not just once in a while like i would (i honestly wouldnt enjoy a holiday without my laptop and internet), but atleast once a week take a little time off.

    With my deepest sympathy also i have heard that Madinaz has passed away, and the memorial service apparently is today. So RIP Madinaz!

    Simply relaxing and having time for useless stuff is the key to free your mind for important stuff and work.

    So go and take your time, just make sure you come back ;)

    P.S.
    You were IN THE AIR on 9/11 ??

    Thanks mate for sharing what going on in your life

    We all have mountains to climb - and I take comfort in the old saying

    "its not the size of the dog in the fight that matters
    its the size of the fight in the dog"

    Deep down all that matters to me is family and we have a special family here with the support of Dave and all the mods

    so thank you and the others for looking after the family.

    While we have lost Mad he remains in our thoughts

    Thanks for the memories
