You are very welcome, although it was RMJ that did all the hard work on the questions. He even did it so I could have had a go myself, but it would have meant not getting any marking done, so I thought I would have a break tonight, and do the marking.  Everyone did brilliantly. Its the first chance I have had to say that, at least RMJ manages to pop a note on everybodies.  Laughing Laughing
