Re the Who is this pic, by pure serendipity, looking for a birthday card for Paul Shaw (trying to find a really rude one) blow me, if you will excuse the term,but there in the card racks is a card with the exact guy on the front. it doesn't name him but is definitely the same and when I get home(I have been let out for good behaviour) will scan and send it for you to judge. Re budgies being small, some are little but well formed if you look as long as they don't go swimming in cold water. nuf said. being told to move on...............David
