    I was watching that program from a wee while ago called "Brotherly Love". Remember it? The one with Joey Lawrence and his 2 real life brothers in it. Anyways so, i noticed at the end during the credits that the Executive Producer was called Jim Halkett (Halkett is my surname) and its kinda unusual so i said to my dad "heh theres a producer on that called Jim Halkett" and he said it was his cousin. :eek:I thought that was pretty smart. :p:

    Anyone else got any famous connections or anything?

    Daniel Jones ... you probably won't have heard of him. He was more famous for being Dylan Thomas's best friend :p: That used to annoy him. But he was a professional composer & his stuff has been played worldwide so ... somebody's gotta know him!

    I try to compose too but lack all the qualities I need

    I think your grand parents being invited to have dinner with the Queen and your family knowing 2 huge celebritys can safely be classified as connections. :rolleyes:
