    Thank you Cory, Niki & Katie, I was really thrilled to get your very positive comments (and your votes too) but wasn't sure if I could post a reply. However, I have since seen that other entrants have posted replies, so i am doing so now, to thank you (even if it's a bit belatedly). Jill 21.9.09
