Various - Hit Singles 1959-2010
Still annoyingly ill - coughing, wheezing, running nose, headaches etc et-bloody-cetera...

Earlier in the day - a call from sister-in-law Jane advised nephew Ollie had met Hearts' owner Vlad Romanov- and here's the picture from the Hearts website - owner is on the left, Ollie fourth in from him - you can't miss him, small boy, reddish blonde hair...
Jane also advised that, rather disappointingly after the amount of work it took earlier this week to recreate them, she accidentally left Bobby's classical compilations in the restaurant on Wednesday night and they are nowhere to be found...
Oh well - luckily I saved the tracks to the hard drive and have coincidentally today located the one track I couldn't find and, of which, I had had to include a recording of a video playing on Youtube...
I am the compiler...
