Berni, Jarkeld - both good! thumbsup

Occasionally we will watch a foreign opera (which is most of them!) with the subtitles turned on. You will get this sublime piece of Italian singing, then the subtitles come up with something bizarre like "I'm off to fire up the old boiler". Beats Monty Python any day...

Sometimes lost is where you need to be. Just because you don't know your direction doesn't mean you don't have one.
