Hi Errol while you are finalizing the ticket for me could you also 
find me some good value "clean" accomodation. 3 or 4 star is fine
provided it is clean!  Would like right at or in the Airport or near
the airport and near the tube, in case I want to pop into London central.
Give me a choice of 2 or three based on value for money. An internet 
connection availability would be a bonus but not absolutely necessary.
Leave it with you and thanks from Roger

Hi again Errol,

The hotels you have listed look fine, although room rates would have
been handy to know (and compare). You also mentioned Terminal 4. I
have a sneaking suspicion that Cathay Pacific, Qantas, Air New Zealand
and most of the South Pacific route airlines leave from Terminal 2.
Could you please check on that for me as it would obviously be better
(more convenient) to be near the terminal of my departure. Thanks for
that from: Roger

Hi, Roger

If you are coming to Heathrow, could you please bring me a few crates
of Oz Chardonnay (Estate Bottled, Premier Cru).

It must be the real thing ... none of that French muck.

Many thanks in anticipation.

Kindest regards

Bryan

Good Morning Bryan,
Would normally not be a problem Mate! (The Chardonay that is.) 
Problem is I'm fresh out,.............have not tasted or even seen a
good Chardonay in weeks. And you're spot on...........definitely none
of that
French Muck!
Cheers from Roger
PS Nice to catch up with you again Bryan.
