Hello Edgey, Cath only ever posted the once and that was nearly 8 years ago. She doesn't seem to have replied to you the last time so obviously doesn't use the boards anymore.

You could try clicking on her name to send a direct message and if she's still an active member she'll be notified.

If you want some help with your research then why not start a new thread of your own and we'll be happy to help.
