It looks like something from Japan. They have complex musical instruments. This is like having the whole bass end of a piano to pluck and bow. It must be hard to play. I will show it to Murray. He is in bed now as he has to get up early to travel to the next county in order to be at a grammar school. He needs the intellectual stimulation as he is far too bright.

He recently got in trouble for controlling the teachers white board using his palm computer. I thought they would suspend him but they didn't because apparantly they expect this kind of thing from clever children.

I think the 24hour labour that I had with him rather sticks in my mind. And no he wasn't swapped as he never left my side. What is more the poor fella looks like me.
