I have just received an email from GR entitled - Viv, Find the 'in Herts' family.

I'd love to know if there is such a family and where they might be found :-S
One thing is for sure, they are no relation to me! :-|

( in Herts is part of my board name and is where I live)

Have you had any daft emails from GR?
