    If I install something on my computer, I want to be assured it is from a reputable source. I trust the BBC as a supplier of certain types of content, but I'd be much more careful about installing something from a company I've never heard of.

    My sincere apology if that offended you. I can see where my sarcasm would do so at times. I really did mean it all in fun. I think Tom has a tremendous and powerful voice. One out of a million! In fact I wish I had it, but you know what they say about wishing.

    BTW, Princess Diane, of whom I really admired, was a big fan of his and she truly had all the class in the world!

    Of course I can't leave without more sarcasm. Being a little older, we watched those reality shows like Leave It To Beaver, Father Knows Best, and, of course, Lawrence Welk. Bubbles everywhere!
