Hi Gary


I'm actually going to be in Milan later this week.  


Can you give me your address over there and we can meet and I can grab the keys from you over there.

Obviously we need a way to complete this deal that will allow us to make sure we receive what we are after. I have found a way for us to complete the deal safe and fast, and in this way you will receive the Keys in less than 2 days, if you  move fast as well. The solution is provided by a company called TNT which is similar to Fedex, DHL or UPS, which will handle the payment and delivery of the Keys.
    I have found a procedure that will allow us to make a fast and safe deal and through this way you will see it and decide if you will stay in the apt or not before I receive my payment. Please click on the link bellow to the TNT website to see how we can complete the deal safely and fast directly from the website of the company where the procedure is explained:

  Let me know if you are interested please because I really need to take care of this matter by the end of the next week.

There's nothing wrong with lookin' like the Joker!

Personally, I don't think there's anything wrong with being characterised as the Joker ...

Hit And Run?

Those silly Israelis ... don't they realise that in Australia it doesn't count as a hit-and-run if you knock somebody off their bicycle ...

Just because Robin Williams doesn't have a beard in a movie doesn't mean that it's not a Robin Williams beard movie

Something You Love?

I love this line which always appears when somebody is killed whilst doing an activity they loved ...
"Brancheau, 40, died doing something she loved, her mother said."
Correction, Ms Brancheau's mother, she died failing miserably at something she loved.
