Dr umtali1 - thanks for the prescription!! Alas I have another 4 weeks to go before my next visit to the Kruger Clinic :? :?
But this morning I can say that I feel as chuffed as when you braai a perfect lamb chop overlooking the Olifants, cause I hit the bulls-eye on the last challenge :dance: :dance:
