Sweet Jesus - that was a fluke mate. I'm on my second glass of red and have nothing.

Open House.

(I would really like to know what that intake is - any ideas? - how come you don't play anymore David?)

Because people post and then disappear, sometimes for days.

Try Goggling military jet trainers.....

Remove the OH, put the glass down and get something in a hurry!
