  1. Barry, send me to England and I’ll write you a review to bring tears to your eyes. Not that I’d use that as an excuse to loiter in the pubs and fritter away my time listening to the dulcet-tongued ladies!

  2. Jeff, you couldn’t possibly need help with the ladies; you’re a prince among men.

    Barry, isn’t it neat to have kids with such a large spread. When I tell people that my son is 22, but my daughters are 7 and 5 they usually make some comment about us waiting a long time to have the little ones. Then I have to go on about the whole, you know, different relationships thing.

    BTW, you don’t look shabby at all.

    Great interview.
