    Is the whole Yorkshire = France thing a common gag throughout England, or just Lancashire... or just CW?

    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
