You both have a way to go yet :wink:
Beard is now of Titus Salt proportions, so keep at it, Graham ................... the other part of the equation is steadily reducing since xmas, so you may get there sooner than you think, Hubs (if I can keep it up, of course :? ).

Re Optimus 8R - I know where there's a really minty one and also a rare double burner one - but then I would, wouldn't I :roll:
