    No offence intended...really enjoyed the humour...its just that the strong American angle made me think of particularly thick Americans and its hard to see past good old George Dubya.

    Right Will, I'll need to sort out a particularly sharp insult for you....problem is....they have all been done.....and none have worked.../img/wwwthreads/frown.gif

    Qualified to play for Wales at what?

    My understanding is that nationality is only the first hurdle.

    OK, I did not indend to offend anyone. And there is no nationalistic reference, either. Doctors, blondes, children etc. are the same everywhere. btw I am a doctor.

    No offence taken by anyone Dr.Mike...................we all have a good time "pulling each others leg" up here in the lounge and would be mortified if we ever offended anyone. You're our second doctor up here although our resident GP Clive is now retired but is a full time practising vampire!/img/wwwthreads/smile.gif............more British humour there! /img/wwwthreads/smile.gif)
