This book I dedicate to my family. To my three kids, Cameron, Ellen, and Scott, who have been brilliant and wonderful and whom I am very, VERY proud of in many ways. And they are such great kids because they have what can only be termed the best mother kids can have, right there, helping, loving, and, yes, screaming at them when needed. Julie, I love you more than I love my Irn-Bru, rugby, and lemon meringue pie . . . and you know how much that means to me! It is to them this book is wholly dedicated.
