Brother Tobias

Well sorry things have been a little quite around here. I've been rather busy with the arrival of a baby boy. Yep, fatherhood is upon me. Little Tobias was born on 5 September and all is going well.

The Jah Mason gig was a great success - check out the chatter over at Oz Reggae. Maximum respect to Firehouse and everyone else involved in the night - including of course Mr Johnson. Apologies to dDub - life was just too crazy to get to the Beach Hotel the other week.

Trust you enjoyed selections from the Ambassador last week and have survived the madness that was APEC.
