    A bit daft possibly, but as I was gonna be up anyway and we've already had the thread about late night drives - I've just got back from Leeds General where I dropped off a get well card for Richard and his family - only wanted to mention because I signed it also on behalf of the well-wishers from the site.

    Fingers crossed he makes a full and fast recovery eh.

    Regards,

    Rob.

    Get well soon Hammy.....

    His height may have saved him... If he was any taller, it may have been worse, JC would have had his head taken off if he'd been in it..... Not that he would have the guts to ;) (not sure I would either though!)

    Just noticed the news as of 2pm today on topgear.com is that his condition has improved more today.

    He's a real blokey bloke, which TG needs IMHO. His Brainiac show is also ace and I hate to think what these 2 shows alone would be like if he couldn't present any more.

    They say the first 24 hours are the most critical time and if you get past that then you stand a good chance of recovery.

    Isn't it amazing in 2 weeks we have seen 2 great TV presenters involved in major accidents doing what they love to do. Stever Irwin and now Hamster, man I hope I go out doing what I love to do best when my time comes up..............what do I love to do best though?
