    Thanks Daylily, my thread was gathering dust in the bowels of Val's Cafe's basement (bet she doesn't know it's got one,lol) so it's good to get the DVD's out again, they're all going up on the shelve in the cafe, in the quiet corner... Feel free to peruse and borrow one whenever you like, just bring your laminated ID card.. :mrgreen:
