I must of been channelling Yogi Beara.

There's a precept which pre-dates the intertubes that applies:-

"The blacksmith's horse generally goes unshod."

With hindsight I kind of wish I'd deliberately written that gibberish.
Self-deprecating irony has it's charms, I'd never fit my head through a
doorway without it.  :)

(and fast typed stream-of-consciousness list posting has it's pitfalls)

Kind regards

"I use readability tools, I also try and employ critical thought, and I
rely strongly on proofreaders. I'm not a professional writer. I've used
none of those things when writing this, and it only "seemed" OK after a
quick re-read - my apologies in advance for all the very likely errors."
