Not yet Nigel. I was told you have to be at least 60 to join that club. This could of course degenerate into a definition of an 'expert' I suppose, and the best definition I've heard is that you have to be more than 50 miles from home and carrying a briefcase. :-) I've been known to carry an empty one just so I had something to carry the loot from the NAB in coming home. But with a little practice you'll make it just fine. :) When you can say that it takes 20mg of levitra to keep your shoes dry, you've arrived. -- Cheers, Gene "There are four boxes to be used in defense of liberty: soap, ballot, jury, and ammo.
