Great news, Alf!  Congratulations and best wishes for many more <0.1's
 
Sidebar question;  Do I remember correctly that your father was in the First War?  And you were born in 1960?  I'm not a math major, but your father must have been at least 60 when you were born?

Clocknut - Almost correct about my dad's age. He was 26 when the First War finished remarried when he was 61 to my mum and 68 when I was born, so no ED there!!!
He died when he was 95, which is the sort of thing that makes me want to beat the old PCa bit time and live a lot longer.
