They bring back memories - we used to have an African Grey and he could mimic my voice perfectly and would call our dog through from the kitchen constantly - very amusing :))
In memory of a very dear friend - Mike Pearson

Very fond memories of Robbie Gilvary - DTs 1st Vulcan Captain who taught DT all he knew.
