Absolutely agreed.

Just think of those obelisks for a start!

Oh! The ol' story!?.... yep, you are getting into the swing of GHMB now!
I will look see what stuff has been said on UM or ATS. I am sure you have 'smashed' them there?

Anyhow, most will tell you I am either drunk or smokin' something if I post here, BUT I am honoured by your attention so maybe after Boxing day I will sober up enough to have a ding dong argument over it? Your Belated Santa!

All the best to you and yours.
Sincerely, not just Xmas ,always
Cheers

PS Have you remembered to send Sam a Xmas card ? Or having round Xmas eve for a lecture?
(A book on introductory hieroglyphics would be a good tip for a belated pressie?!
I can't gloat, I am still yet to decide on something "suitable" for the Mrs, so I could be franticly busy in the next 48 hrs)
