    How deceptive… Just a blogpost. I was expecting a lot more from someone like you, Mister Community. Where is the Wikipedia infliltration, the SEO-ed viral video, the eBay auctionned engagement note… Come on I am sure you have someting in your sleves. I know: another video clip with Joe Cocker and Catherine Deneuve!!!

    Mel~Ashley, soooo romatic. I guess you did it at the top of a mountain, so if she said no you could just push her off… Hey, here’s a romantic idea… Get marrried at SES, London. The figures for the show will improve greatly and you guys will get lots of back links… Sound romantic to you? :-))

    I have been under the ice ( in many remarks) in Sweden 🙂 so was catching up on things and life and saw your message…

      Hello – so you saw the 38th repeat did you?? 😉 The dog was a Dalmation cross breed with something else. Sadly he died a few months after the program was filmed and we now live in Seattle, USA with a baby girl called Maggie. No dog. Good sleuthing! How did you find us?
