Won't work for me. The video clip is not iPad friendly (or vice versa). I'll go check it out on the PC, that will usually do the trick

Yep, the PC is still good for something. Thanks for sharing the link with us.

David said in an interview that he bought his first dancing cane from Fantasio. His father gave him.
