Sorry, stuffed up my reply there. Supposed to reply to burgundy. I'm just back from an all day recording session and have had several amber beverages. That's my excuse anyway, and I'm sticking to it.

Great you got it done... (It's God's Country, by the way).... "Where men are men... & so are the women". Another beer opportunity will surely present itself somewhere down the track..

Cheers
John
