    There is another issue in this case - an outstanding practicioner who is a dodgy commentator :-)

    I have 40 years of teaching experience and only repeat myself. The truth has not changed in 40 years. Here at TM I am just short of making the top 10 answers sticky and then referring new posts to them before I lock them shut!

    Ex-Spurt, has been drip under pressure.

    Now for the Creme de la Creme (well Cream is only the scum on top of the milk)

    Okay in all seriousness I do see where Ivan is coming from. It reminds me of what my Grandfather used to say (He was an engineer who worked at Blackburns on the Buccaneer and was there through the war working on the Skua, Roc, Botha etc) Beware the man who has never made a mistake, he has never made anything. Basically saying if you don't make a mistake you can't learn from it.
