    great angle steve ;D
    Hi Mr J

    So glad its meets with your esteemed approval, that makes me sleep soundly in my bed knowing that I have one more satisfied customer  ;D

    By the way, Kielder is unfortunately laid up in the Port of Blyth at present awaiting a new owner, sad state of the shipping industry at the moment with the credit crunch and all.
