Congratulations - at least it gives the kid something interesting to  
aim for... if they so wish.

A very esteemed member of the MGB Car Club here in Adelaide, fellow  
motorsport Steward and my Chief Sector Marshal at the coming Rally of  
South Australia (just a plug for those who like those things) is a  
true gentleman named Leyland George.

When I was first introduced to him I thought it was a nickname -  
especially as he was am MG owner - but nope, that is his name.

Thank god he didn't choose to be a Ferrari fanatic... or maybe his  
name chose his hobby for him!

Adelaide, South Australia
