Dave Hall moves to the USA

A note from Dave Hall

It was good seeing the teachers at one of the reunions - I seem to have caught them up in age. Dickie Mant looked younger than most of the "boys" at the reunion.2008 - moved the family to the USA - still in healthcare - now for 15 years after 15 years in construction. Its true - things are bigger ove here.

This is an update - my old entry is now out of date as I have emigrated to the USA - now live and work in Nashville TN - web site is still a blast in a sad/happy way.
