Peter Sheil
Having cracked my technical problem I am now drowning in a sea of paper-work before the "Review and Approval" process. Talk about making mountains out of mole hills - that's paper mountains out of a mole hill of a new window in the application.

Still - just one more day then it's packing and flying over to the US for a week and a half ... yipeee. I surely need the break at the moment.

I'll probably be on-line intermitently over the next two weeks, I am moving around seeing two different friends so I may suffer a little jet lag at times. Please excuse any laxness in my responses, and any lowering of my grammatical and spelling standards as I am infected by contact with the great hordes of American speakers. :) [I love you realy :))) ]

take care and "Have a good day now"

Enjoy your trip to the US. Whereabouts are you going to be? It's a rather largish country, you know.

Re:

Sioux City and I think Detroit for the middle weekend [I get confused easily but I know it starts with a "D" :) ]

I have 9 flights in 10 days :( None of my journeys are direct and the return flight is from Sioux City to Miniapolis to Detroit then finally London Gatwick.

How far will I be from you? speaking as someone with know knowledgeof American geography I have no idea if it is close to you or not.

Re:

If this were the mid-80s or earlier, Detroit would be very close (I'm a born and bred Michigander, and I was raised in the suburbs of Detroit), but it is about a 14-hour drive from Richmond. Sioux City and Minneapolis are both west of the Mississippi, so they're a lot farther away.

To find where I am, look at a map of the US and find Washington DC (around the middle of the Atlantic coastline). Richmond is about 1.5 hours south of Washington DC in central Virginia.

Hey who knows? a little American might add some "color" to your vocabulary....you might even develop an interesting sense of "humor" ;-P

Re:

... but I thought you thought it was interesting already. Is that just your natural politeness not allowing you to offend me? *chuckle*

Re:

didn't you know? Americans are infamous for not having natural politeness ;-)

you know it was just a feeble attempt to use the American (mis)spelling in context :-)

Re: lucky guy

Thanks

And I didn't even mention the two great women I'm going to see [evil grin as clouds of envy drift towards me] Rachel and Jo. I'll be taking pics and I promise I will post some of the less incriminating ones when I get back :)

take care
peter
