Tom Robertson



This video is of singer/ song writer Geoff Robertson who is from Brisbane Australia performing in a gala concert held in May 2006 to raise funds for MND. Geoff`s dad Hugh was diagnosed a year and a half earlier with MND - the concert raise thousands of dollars for mnd research and was a wonderful farewell to Hugh who was moved and humbled by all the attention-he died just one month later. This song is a tribute to Geoff`s grandfather Tom Robinson-I think the words are lovely.Hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I did I found it very moving.

Andrew is going home today - hopefully in time to watch the grand prix !
He and Tim have a little bit of rivalry going on via an internet game based on the grand prix- You set up your own team of drivers after you watch the qualifying laps on each race- you have a chance then to swop the odd driver round -there`s a leader board and medals to be won , so far Tim is leading but Andrew is hot on his heels with Pete [ Tim`s son lagging behind- doh ! ]
There is a lot of teasing and leg pulling going on over it- good luck Andrew ! hope it`s a good race
for you bro ! xx

That is nice to hear. Rivalry can really motivate us. Hope Andrew wins, and even if does not, it is the game he played that counts.

Hello Janet! Good to read Andrew is coming home. My family back east is very involved in the NASCAR (racing) scene, but I have never been able to get revved up about it. Round & round they go! My nephew is a driver and he married into like racing royalty here in the USA,Kelley Earnhardt. I had to google her to know that!! hehe.
