      Dear Livio,

      Cor, Blimey !!!.... fantastic work you have done on your video on Youtube..

      Also not forgetting the work started by Scott Alexander and maintained by
      Patrice and others....

      That is the power of the word whether by mouth or written as if I hadn't
      known about Redhotjazz which I came across a few years ago and the same with
      Weimar, I wouldn't have been listening to it but to something else...

      Each person is its own castle....

      ta
