muchas gracias raw amigos! twas a good year with many adventures (and a few misadventures). Thanks for the kind words Tim, it was a hell of a year work-wise, never been busier. since becoming a father, my daughter Rosanna has made sure i keep my feet on the ground and don't get too 'cock of the walk'...or should i say allcock of the walk! I can't wait to get stateside again, hopefully 2012 will allow it.
