Hi Chris,
I have put it on ' Is it Whitefriars' and tried to link in with this thread (but it didn't work). Patrick has a Boffo mouse on his link at WF.com  which is a very similar colour.  Cheers Mike.

And to which Boffo are you referring? Vicente or Ettore?

There are X2, 100% 'NO' votes on WF.com.....I think I might have lost my bet (no remarks/no explination!) !  :cry: Sob , Mike.
