    What a great project. Next time around I would love to be a part of it considering that everybody seems to have such fun, smilin’, embracing each other. My range of fantastic jokes and humorous comments is guaranteed to create the right atmosphere, not that me mates, Stephen, Josie and Jeremy couldn’t make you laugh. I could even grow a bit of a beard, if necessary.
