Holy moly, thanks so much. I am honored that my sleepy "mammal" was "faster" than a flying "avian", yeeeeaaaahhhh :cheers: :5
Fantastic, thanks so much guys. I am very thankful to the BPN, with it's great moderators and fantastic members which I meet in the forums or even when I am somewhere on earth. Love it all the way.
Also must say a big thank you to Steve K., Rachel H. and Morkel E. for kicking my "behind" so often to get it right from start up.
The drinks will be on the house whenever I meet someone from BPN. :bg3: :w3

Artie, when you see this: When are you again in Europe? I take that free day for sure! :t3

Again thank you so much guys, guess I sleep tonight with a big smile on my face :S3:

Have a great eve
