To win, you have to believe you can do it. You have to be passionate about it You have to really "want" the result-- even if this means years of work. The hardest part of any big project is to begin. We have begun-- we are underway-- we have a passion. We want to make a difference. We hope that you and as many of your friends as possible will join us. " Sir Peter Blake 12/4/2001
