      Has something happened with TAD services more recently ? only thing I can see is someone incorporated an completely unrelated company with the same name ( slightly unfortunate - always google your new company name before committing to it!)

        Bloody impressive sentences.

        I like your pin shot
        I keep it with your letter
        Done up in blueprint blue
        It sure looks good on you
        And when you smile for the camera
        I know I'll love you better

        Then the shutter falls
        You see it all in 3-D
        It's your favorite foreign movie

        'Peg'
