May your happiness increase!

    I can’t compliment you enough on what you write about but, above all, HOW you write it! You are so eloquent and make it all sound so interesting and attractive. Fabulous!If I can work oout how to record a phone call, I should love to call you on Skype for a brief interview and maybe, (but I really hope to be able to do it) I can also broadcast the whole thing on the radio I work with – http://www.europaradiojazz.com as part of a new programme I’m contributing to in January under the title The Jazz Club.Would you agree to this?Look forward to hearing from you and, by the way, my refular email address is now parfitt@libero.itRegards.Paula.
