You're quite welcome, Willit-and yes, having put in significant amounts of time in your country, I am not altogether unfamiliar with the English Civil War, Cromwell and his merry band of "Roundheads."

oldie,

I am a Brit living now in the US and took a trolley tour of Boston.

The tour guide said she was always confused that according to history Paul Revere said "the British are coming" he would never have said that since realistically the colonists considered themselves British.

David_West - you crease me up but still, mustn't grumble

BTW 8/14

A friend of mine returned from Boston, wearing a T-shirt that read "The British are coming, the British are coming" and on the back ".....and they're bringing beer!"
