  1. When I was about 9 or 10, sometimes my dad would say “smarten yourself up”, you look like you come from Angel Meadow. I never had a clue what he was talking about, but since have read some of the history and intend to visit in the next few weeks. Will look forward to reading your book. Good luck Dean.
