        Oh, right. Well I have 18 emails presently. It might be among them. It’s 7.50, & I leave for work at 8.30, and I’m only half ready! So I’ll see if I get it today & will reply if I do (so you don’t need to waste time doing again tomorrow). So enjoy internet cafe time, & I’ll let you know 🙂


Don't bottle it up, let everybody know your opinion. And please feel free to leave a link to any of your recent posts
