Thanks RMJ. All this was caused by another quiz..... I was looking to see if I could get a Fancy Dress costume by Friday night. One of the characters from Harry Potter. There is a quiz on the books and films at our local place that we go for a meal, and the Grandaughter wants to go, as does the Daughter..........(and me). The Grandaughter is going as Hermione, and Granny as always daft enough to join her Laughing Laughing  Extra prizes too, for fancy dress.

Sorry WW, only just seen this post, I took a little break from my laptop,

I've been sat with it since 7-45 tonight.

That sounds like a real fun evening, hope you enjoy.

I'm not really a Harry potter fan, but they are very popular books and films.

Thanks again, Ray.

Also, rather than clutter his thread, thanks again to Gassey for the ongoing day in history nuggets.
