Nikola, that is exactly why I took a new picture. I feel strongly that my new picture will attrack new female members to our forums. Once they see what is behind the camera. membership will increase by 150% :smt025 . Actually my wife said my old picture made me look like an old fool and I should take an other one so I only look like HALF a fool. :roll: (only kidding DEAR" :^o)

PS. Nikola, I score your exam as 95%. Sentence 6 is OK either way, but I would have answered the same as you.

All I've got to do is copy / paste Doug's (with a smidgeon of g.blur) ... and no-one'd know the difference :)

Nice soft colours, btw Nikola.
