"but I do know he can speak English" May 3, 2012

In my opinion, it's not so much the accomplishment but more the attitude; it's marvellous! An inspiration in many ways, I'm sure he is more than worthy of the degrees, being an FCIL and a member of Mensa, as well as a lollipop man, keeping the kids safe!
How very modest, well done to Bruce Berryicon_smile.gif
