The name doesn't sound at all familiar, but when I looked through the web page I did recall a program from the past with the character Adam Dalgliesh, other than that I have no recollection of it at all.

Ah yeah, remember it well Maria! We were all given twenty hessian sacks each down on the beach and told to fill them pretty quickly, or the tide would devour us! Hence The Sandbaggers!! That is right isn't it?

I thought something was coming when I saw your name in the 'last post' lol. Anyway, dear Ron, that raised a good laugh and for that I intend to reciprocate by acquainting you with the latest, top secret, techno gadget that we've been working on down at the Firm: the amazing  rONote Control !

Ha ha! A very funny picture Maria! We were in stitches!
Very cleverly done Laughing

With Ron having a few of his own inventions under his belt though, we're sure he'll come up with something to counter it Smile

Maria, that is very funny and very clever, you are obviously a very talented lady! Anna agreed with you entirely, she couldn't stop laughing and wants to know about availability of the product.

I only wish I was able to do something like that, but the fact is I have trouble loading a pic on my websites, so whilst I appreciate the  comments from Sarah and Chris, I am unlikely to be able to put anything on the net in retaliation! Thinks.....I might even pay somebody to put something together, I could always tell her I learned how to do it!

Surely there must come an opportunity to get YOU Maria, remember I'll be watching! Where does Maria live, Italy! Hmm wonder what excuse I can make for nipping over there to sort her out once and for all!!

Ah,ah....ok, ok Ron boy, I will surrender, and in token of truce, I suggest the following : I'm going to patent it and then we'll share the inevitable, big profits as good friends Wink
