Hello and did you both have a good weekend? Sorry I have been off-line and have spent a wee while trying to catch up with the whole reptile and blood stuff. Anyway I have printed off your answers and will reply properly in an hour or two - I need to think about this.
Incidentally I have a link for you, Milo. I enjoyed Cracking the Apocolypse Code although it does have a lot of mental gymnastics in it. Basically it looks at Revelations on an esoteric level and the fact that it was written in a time of supression. Let me know what you think of the link - it has been a while since I read it though.
Magdalen - you might like it too and it is actually written originally in French so you may already be aware of it.
