Hey, good work there Barb, I only vaguely remember the Tooker Gomberg's
I have Northern Cable, not likely I'll see it, unless it goes into a media
news clip - perhaps CBC. media - I'll call CBC to see if that can be done.
Not being much of a TV fan, I don't know how these things work.
I would love to see it.
