    In the midst of a 'big' situation that's affecting everybody one way or another it just goes to show the magnitude of such a simple gesture as walking up and down his garden.

    Thanks for the link. As an American, I had no idea under the nine suns who in the world this person was.

    Meanwhile politicians are voting not to give nurses a pay raise.

    Perhaps have the politicians who vote for not giving the nurses pay raises to go work in the hospital for a 12 hour shift, see how they feel about it afterwards.

    I saw US$25m. What's that, about 20m pounds? Good job Tom and all the people that donated

    Nice to see good news for a change, eh?
