[23 MAR 00] WEBCAM VIEWS
Personally I prefer to see Lady Godiva looking down on the
shopping centre as living in Austalia I can arrange for members of my family to be
standing by the statue waving to me whilst I watch on my computer at home. It's GREAT!!!
But I really like the Peeping Tom picture as well so please
don't alter that either.
Keep up the good work it really is fantastic!!!

G'day my friend I'm Craig Cartwright and I am nearly 40.
I heard a rumour a few years ago that my old school mates
