A Message we Received Today: 
Have watched your TV programme and fallen in love with you both and the Chateau. Can’t believe the things you both achieve, you seem to be able to do anything you put your minds to.  Dick you remind me so much of my Dad, someone that gives so much love and to every one around them and Angel you have a personality all of your own. Would love to meet you one day, if you are ever in Australia we live 20 kms out of Brisbane city on 1 acre. My husband lives in the garden all day every day. Please come stay with us if you ever venture to Australia and one day I would love to visit your beautiful Chateau. Please keep making your TV programme.  Love to You both and your Children & Mum & Dad, Anne”
