Hi, I have only just started on this site and have had some unqualified success. However, one thing I would ask of everyone on the list if you get approached about a relative. PLEASE ANSWER. Those of us who are asking, if we do not get a reply do not know whether, the person at the other end doesn't get on the site very often, doesn't know whether there is a connection, or knows there is no connection and doesn't bother to reply to tell the othe person. I had one reply to a Russell query that was answered in 2 hours in the negative, but at least I knew not to travel down that route any further. So once again PLEASE REPLY to questions. Sorry no connection takes about 20 sec to type, for most people, and puts others out of their misery. Regards Bob
