    Smile Taking The Plunge

    Just thought I would let you all know that after several years of trying, my better half has finally got me to walk down the aisle!

    Elaine and myself are getting married in April next year, an invitation is extended to any Crusties who may be on this side of the pond on April 9th 2005

    martin, Congradulations. Maybe, you should come over on this side of the pond for the bachelor party.

    What are you freaking NUTS?

    It took about 4 years of begging to get my wife to lower her standards and marry me.

    Best wishes bud, unfortunately I believe I will be rotting here in North Carolina studying some disease pathology or another. Woo Hoo!

    Martin,
    Congratulations to both of you. Best wishes for April 9th, is it gonna be a church do with all the trimmings, Brigade guard of honour(honor for those this side of the pond) etc?

    Though it would be great to see you here, dont even consider having your batchelor party over here, the "draft ale is much better quality on your side of the pond.

    Congratulations! Great news. I celebrate my fourth anniversery tomorrow, and its been great. When you've been with someone for awhile, it may not seem like it'll be that big of a change, but believe me, it is...and a wonderful one at that.

    All the best.

    Congrats from all of us down here to yourself and Elaine.

    Do you want that copy of the CISD manual back?

    Thank you all for for kind words and encouragement

    Ian I think I am well passed the need for the CISD manual...maybe I will need an RIT Team on the day just to back me up.

    I wonder if it was the Guinness/Bushmills combination....

    Martin,
