A Little Inspiration…


A few weeks ago, “Rocky Balboa” was on T.V. I always knew it as “Rocky 6″, and I had never really watched a Rocky movie in its entirety before. My son, who is 13, was mesmerised.

Yep, she failed! It was an accident, we all make mistakes, but it took my son and I, half an hour to stop shaking! The noise and the shaking of the car, did give us a bit of a fright! (more…)
