Thanks for the news Helen. I was going to Skype to the US but will wait now. Will type an email. Amazing stats about tihs company. IT is true that when we come to depend on our computer or our coffee machine or our mother -in-law we may be adrift if they do not work. Hope it is up and running again soon. Thanks again Helen.
