    Hey Paul, only just caught up with the health posts. Hope you’re not in too much pain, and please take lots of rest. My friend had the same diagnosis a couple of years ago, but once treated was fine again. Wishing you all the best. 🙂 x

    Thank you Jermajesty. The pain comes and goes. I am waiting to get surgery scheduled. Have a nice weekend 🙂

    Thank you so much. I recently watched this movie and used Shazam to determine what the song was that was playing during this dance scene, and it told me that it was this dance mix, which appears to be not on CD yet.
