It's nice the BBC gave you permission to upload their content onto youtube.

I think this is the least of the BBC's concerns at this moment in time...

Craig's link is to the BBC's web site. But it is nice of them!

The link is indeed to the BBC. The embedded youtube clip, however, is copyrighted content Craig has uploaded to youtube. Obviously, he wouldn't break the law like that without permission. I'm surprised the Beeb gave him that permission, hence me posting how nice it was of them!

You know I did not even notice the embedded you tube, I just went right to the link.

OK, so your sarcastic "nice of them" and my non-sarcastic "nice of them" both have some merit :-)

Our friend the late Tabby Crabb did the same thing. Used magic to get out of poverty. At one time, Tabby lived in the basement of a friend and on the couch of the Judds.. been two years and still miss him.

This kid has a great story too!
