My best wishes to Jon for a good outcome.

I remember how Jon gave me a warm welcome to his Birmingham home, many years ago now. And of course, we all benefit from the unique and comprehensive body of vintage TV information on his site. Thanks Jon.

I've only just seen this, I was notified by Mike (Cobaltblue) when on the phone to him earlier today.

I hope you make a swift strong recovery Jon, wishing you all the best my friend.

I send my best wishes to you and hope all will be ok very soon. I look forward to see you make a full recovery and to see you at upcoming BVWS events. I still go on your website every few days and enjoy the humour and wit put into some of your pages.

Hope you get sorted soon Jon, if you want a few bottles of stout and 20 Park Drive sneaking in let us know : ) The days of smoking under the sheets, matron's, flat caps in bed and leering at nurses are long gone I suspect. Well maybe not the latter, so you may be happier with a portable soldering iron and old radio to fix up to keep busy if you don't feel too rough.

Any chance of a link to Jon's website for those not familiar with it?

Andy.
