  29. Thanks for a great challenge, loved using one of my DSB stamps! I read some of the comments and thought I'd add my thoughts on the weather: careful what you wish for: It's 100 or close to it here in Western Australia - has been for weeks and forecast for the f foreseeable - and I'm pretty much "over it"!! BTW, great DT work :-) Dee
