Thank you. It's a universal phrase, used for countless reasons from passing the salt, to providing support in a time of crisis. And it means different things to different people. But as a nurse let me tell you, one small thank you can go a long way.

I know that you are only a human being just like I am and I hope that my words might reach you and make a difference.

The rumors of illegal traction control, torque vectoring and other crafty KERS/transmission linking still move like a fog through the pit lane of Formula 1 this week in Japan.
