Thank you for your votes, reviews and teaching my dances - it really means a lot to me.

Bill Ray of Hawaii says.... " I taught your dance "I Wish" to my intermediate class in Hilo, Hawaii, last Friday. The class loved it! I remember you saying something about the dance on an ILCW post a while back, so I looked it up on You Tube, liked how the dance looked, and decided to teach it. So, you are known in Hilo, Hawaii, USA. Long way from the Scottish Borders, huh? "- e-mail 24 Jan 2008
